forget about polls.     

The "snack" is calcium nitrate, 1 tsp every 7 to 10 days right down the reservoir tube.

It's available at real garden centers, not Lowes or Home Depot. Or Amazon.

I got what sure looks like Calcium Nitrate via Amazon. It's more expensive than buying in bulk but I only have 5 EB's

I buy mine at a farm co-op.  50 lbs for I think $20... it stores well in covered 5 gallon buckets. As long as it doesn’t get wet it works well.
I have 40 regular and 10 juniors but even then I have a lot left from purchasing 2 years ago.
I try to be reasonably consistent in using it.  I use it on all veggies,  not just tomatoes.
