Tea Suggestion:

I chose to pair these snacks with this Organic Idulgashena Garden Green Tea from Stash Tea.  The pepper, garlic and onion flavors of the snacks were a perfect match for the spice note of the tea.  A lovely afternoon snack time!

What I Think:

These somersaults are YUMMY!

They look a bit like small tater tots.  That was my first impression of them after opening the bag.  But, I suspect these are much healthier than a tater tot!

They are very crunchy, and it’s a good, hearty CRUNCH.  The black pepper flavor is distinct, but I didn’t find it to be overwhelming.  However, if you’re one who doesn’t care for the flavor of black pepper, you might want to try a different flavor!

The flavor of sunflower seeds is also prominent, and it provides a toasty, nutty flavor.  I like that they are not too salty.  I can taste the garlic and the onion, and these flavors develop as I continue to munch on them and I’ve got to tell you, once you start munching on these, it’s hard to stop!  The garlic and onion flavors are intensified by the salt and pepper, so don’t munch on these if you are planning on kissing someone soon.

But you should definitely find the time to try these snacks, because they are addicting!  I finished my 2 ounce bag of these in no time flat!  They are very satisfying too.  I started eating them because I was hungry and wasn’t in the mood to cook something, and after I finished the bag, my hunger was satiated.

My Final Thoughts:

Very scrumptious.  Or shall I be corny and create a new word:  sCRUNCHious.  These are snacks that I think my entire family would love … if only I had the will to stop snacking on them to save them some!  Definitely something worth looking for at my Whole Foods Market the next time I visit… perhaps I will bring in the empty pouch and ask them to start carrying them!
