I’m a really big fan of sunflower seeds, whether they are just roasted and eaten at the ball game or mixed into a candy like sunflower seed brittle. I just don’t like the mess of breaking open the shells and popping out the seed. I know some people eat them shell and all, but I am not one of those people. I also love putting sunflower seeds on my salads at salad bars!
I am also a compulsive snacker, which is not a good trait to have. 🙂 Now there is a new snack that combines sunflower seeds with healthy whole grains to make a nice, crunchy, satisfying nut-free snack food. Somersaults are a baked healthy snack manufactured by Somersault Snack Co.
My first tastes were the “salty pepper” and the “pacific sea salt” versions. These are really good tasting and definitely satisfy that salt craving that we all get! Somersaults have a really good “crunch” to them, without being too hard to bite. If you have more of a sweet tooth instead of salty, I would recommend the “dutch cocoa” or “cinnamon crunch” varieties. They are yummy and kids would love them!
(Disclosure: I received a variety of Somersault Snacks to test out to facilitate my review. My opinion is honest and my own and may differ from yours.)
Nutritional information: Somersaults vary depending on flavor, but most are between 70 and 150 calories per serving and between 3 and 7 grams of fat per serving, so way less than potato chips or Dorito-type chips! Pacific Sea Salt and Cinnamon Crunch are certified as GMO free by the NonGMO Project.
Five Flavors: Pacific Sea Salt, Cinnamon Crunch, Salty Pepper, Dutch Cocoa and Santa Fe Salsa
Where to buy: Somersaults are available at somersaultsnackco.com, Target, Costco and Amazon and range in price from $3.99 for the 6 ounce package to $35.90 for a 10 pack variety package of 6 ounce packages, so a little cheaper to get more!
