There's something about a Crab Rangoon that just makes the day better. Perhaps it's the perfect balance of crab and cream cheese. Maybe it's the crispiness of the wonton shell that seems to chase away every problem in your life. Yes, I'm hungry while typing this, can you tell?

But, where can you find the best in the Kalamazoo area?

It's a question that was posed on Kalamazoo's Reddit page and, not surprisingly, locals were very passionate with their answers. Here are at least 7 spots that serve up tasty crab rangoons in the Kalamazoo area:
