I'm a big fan of seaweed. Really. It's my favorite part of a California roll and I've always loved those crunchy fried seaweed "sheets." Yes, they smell like the bottom of the ocean, but that's their appeal, right?! I was excited to see these snacks in my local Whole Foods, but like a lot of the offerings at Whole Foods, these were pretty pricey. It's been awhile between the day I bought these and today, so I don't remember the cost, but I think they were around $4.00 for the pretty small bag.
The ingredient list is small, which I like. Nothing crazy and no strange additives. I also like the nutrition facts. I would have expected these to have more sodium than they do. I have to add, though, that there really is only one serving per bag. The serving size is tiny. I think they should make bigger bags, lol. For a chip product, these are really healthy. Of course, this is a snack food and should be eaten in moderation, but I am impressed with the numbers here.
Cute, huh? I really think they're trying to appeal to kids with the packaging. I'm a kid at heart!
I guess you might have been wondering what they look like. I was curious myself when I bought them. They're kind of shaped like Bugles, with the seaweed nestled inside the curled chip. They are crunchy, slightly salty and light in texture.
Theycome in other flavors as well. www.seasnax.com/Chomperz_c_17.html Here is their website where you can check out the other flavors. Maybe while I'm there, I'll order a case. Or two.
I highly recommend these. I'm just hoping the price drops a bit, because at $4.00 a bag, that's a little too rich for my blood.
