SeaSnax Seaweed Snacks Review

I'm sure you're thinking that this snack doesn't sound very appealing.. I have to be honest; I almost passed up the opportunity because roasted seaweed didn't really sound appealing to me. It's not something I've had (or even seen) before but it sounded quite interesting. I'm sure not very many people have tried seaweed and I wanted to be able to tell others what its like.

SeaSnax are roasted seaweed snacks that come in a "sheet" like form. They have 4 flavors available - Wasabi, Spicy Chipotle, Toasty Onion, and Classic. When I saw the way they looked, felt the texture, and heard the sound; I didn't think it was going to be very good. They are a dark transparent green in color. The texture was crispy and they are very light/airy, and very thin. It breaks easily when it gets folded (or while putting it in your mouth) and has a sound that is similar to plastic wrapping. I was still very curious about what they tasted like so I went ahead.

SeaSnax are all vegan, gluten free, non-GMO project verified, made with 100% olive oil, natural Wasabi flavor, and a pinch of seasalt. It's also high in vitamins B1, B6, and C, vegetable protein, fiber, iron, and other minerals. The seaweed is harvested in Korea, which is also where they roast and package. There are not many western people that are familiar with or eat sea vegetables (seaweed). In Korea and many parts of Asia they have it included in almost every meal. It's believed to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet. Research has indicated that seaweed has a large amount of minerals such as copper, zinc, iron, calcium, selenium, sodium, magnesium, iodine and potassium.

I decided to try the Wasabi first. The Wasabi flavor does indeed taste like Wasabi, just not too overbearing. Once it hits your tongue, it starts to soften up and then it turns into something that looks (and feels) more like seaweed. I ate the whole package and then asked my fiancee if he wanted to try some. He didn't seem like he knew if he wanted to at first but then after I told him it was really good he decided to give toasty onion a shot. 

He thought they were pretty good and ended up trying the other flavors. He said Wasabi and toasty onion were his favorites. I'd have to say those are my favorites as well but I liked spicy chipotle too. The classic flavor is bland and I'd prefer to eat it rolled with something. Spicy chipotle is a little hot, not really exciting if you like hot things. Toasty onion has a good onion flavor; you can definitely tell it's toasty (or roasted) and it has a salty flavor. 

After eating quite a few packages he thought they were be good rolled up with different things such as hummus, salami, and cheese or maybe just tuna. he came up with so many options. We tried the hummus, salami, and cheese and it was absolutely delicious. They rolled up perfectly and we just couldn't get enough.

He took some to his family and had them try it; they loved it too. Even my girls, ages 7 and 5 liked it. Their favorite was the toasty onion. The remaining packages didn't last long in my home. We ate them so fast I wasn't even able to get a photo to show what they look like. *We might have photos of some of the things we made with them. I will look and post if/when I can. 

If you want to find SeaSnax in your area, click here to find local stores. If you have a Whole Foods in your state, they will most likely have it there.

Price: $8.95 for a case of 6
