I am graceful enough with my tongue to split the shell eat the seed and spit out the shell with a handfull of shells in my mouth.

I have seen people fumbling with their fingers and picking the seed out, and just plain destroying the seed and shell and eating them whole. Bunch of wierdos. :)

many years of baseball has transformed my mouth into a seed eating, husk spitting machine. i can take a whole handfull of seeds, throw them in one side of my mouf and spit the shells out. its becoming habitual, but theyre so good

I can not get the seed out of the shell with any grace, so I end up sucking on the shell until all the salt is gone, chew it up and swallow it:D

I get the BBQ flavor seeds, and chew on them until the flavor is gone, and then spit whatever is left out. The only bad thing about this method is when a little splinter gets stuck in your gums...OUCH!

I eat it all. I'm too damn lazy to try separating the seed from the shell. Besides, the shell is covered in salty goodness.

The key to avoid the torturous bowel movements is to drink LOTS of water for 24 hours after eating the shells.

suck the salty goodness off the shell, split, then either spit, or pack in the other cheek till i have a mouthful for machine gun action.

Playing baseball has helped me become proficient in the art of sunflower seed eating. Eating the shells is nasty...

The coolest thing about baseball IMO. You either did seeds or skoal. I hated chewing tobacco. I did seeds instead. Eat the seeds and spit the very chewed shells. Know plenty of boxers/fighters who do the same.....
