    Can these be made ahead and kept refrigerated for lunch at work or do they need to be made fresh? Wondering if they get smushy. I haven’t seen rice paper at any grocers here, figuring I would need to go to a specialty store, there are Asian food stores here but I haven’t been to one yet. The only spring rolls I’ve had were more like a tiny, slim egg roll in the frozen section at the grocery store here and I fried them in coconut oil. They were very crisp and delicious.

    I would like to take some for lunch at work. How long does it take for the rice paper to soften? Will I need a pan of water to soak? I’m thinking tiny shrimp would be awesome in these too
