When we began our quest to make scrumptious, healthy snacks out of seeds, we developed our original flavor, Pacific Sea Salt. The touch of sea salt on these crunchy nuggets is sourced right here in our own backyard, the San Francisco Bay, and highlights the nutty taste of sunflower and sesame seeds. Pacific Sea Salt is sure to twirl your taste buds.
With salty snacks like this, I want iced tea! I brewed some of this Organic Korakundah Green Tea from Butiki Teas and served it iced with these Somersaults, and it was a great pairing. The slightly smoky, sweet yet bitter taste of the green tea offered a nice contrast to the nutty crunch of these salty snacks.
What I Think:
I received a small package (1 ounce) of the Pacific Sea Salt Somersaults in my Goodies Box for September. I was pretty certain I’d enjoy them, as I have loved the other flavors that I’ve tried of this snack.
In comparison, though, this one is just a little bland. It is basically like eating roasted, salted sunflower seed kernels … only more substantial. They have that very satisfying crunch and substance to them, and I find that this small package made for a nice between meal snack that kept me satiated until dinnertime.
They’re salty, but not too salty. Tasty … nutty. I like them, and they seem to satisfy that empty feeling between meals better than something less healthy like potato chips.
My Final Thoughts:
If I were to shop for snacks, I might choose Somersaults because they’re healthier than something like potato chips, and I’d feel better about my daughter snacking on these. For my daughter, I’d probably select this flavor because I think that the salty pepper would be a little too peppery for her taste… but for me, this is probably not the flavor that I’d select. I enjoyed them, sure, but after sampling the salty pepper or the cinnamon crunch Somersaults, these Pacific Sea Salt Somersaults left me wanting a little bit more flavor.
