3pm treats…

It’s that time of the day again.. Snack time!

It can be hard sometimes to find gluten free yummy snacks – heads up Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars are still the greatest. But I thought that I would try another snack today and let you know what I think.

Taken from http://planetfood.com.au/product/original-roasted-seaweed-snacks/

So I was a little hesitant to try this product because well its seaweed…. doesn’t really sound all that appetizing does it? But Planet Food use natural ingredients and this product is free from GMO and Gluten, plus the whole product is 30 calories. So I gave them a go.

First bite I was definitely not taken by them at all. It was like having sushi minus all of the good stuff that is inside. I tried some more… they definitely got better the more that I ate. They are not a product to eat if super hungry though as they are not in anyway filling. Also no insulin required to eat the whole packet!

I spoke to a friend about trying them and she loves them, she used to take them hiking because they are salty and very light weight.

I wouldn’t say that they are my favorite snack but they are definitely something that I would keep in the cupboard and have every now and then. They can also be purchased at my local Coles which is a bonus. If I was going to rate them on a scale of 1 – 5. Where 1 is something yucky and 5 are Blue Dinosaur Paleo Bars I would say that they are a 3.
