I am constantly in search of healthy snacks. Something that tastes good, is convenient, and provides nutritional value for my family. That’s why I am super excited to tell you about a company that I recently found – Somersault Snack Co.
“Somersaults are the result of our quest to create healthy, tasty snacks for people who want more than just empty nutrition. What followed was a philosophy and lifestyle that adds joy and delicious goodness to your everyday life. We invite you to share in the unexpected pleasures that Somersaults offer, with crunch, zing and a little zest for adventure!”
I was lucky enough to get to try all of the flavors of Somersault Snacks, which includes cinnamon crunch, salty pepper, pacific sea salt, dutch coca, and
salsa. santa fe
Sunflower seeds are the inspiration behind these scrumptious little nuggets, and are their #1 ingredient. These treats have as much protein as almonds with just half of the fat. They are also a good source of fiber and vitamin E. Somersault Snacks are nut free and only 150 calories per serving (which is 14 pieces or about one snack size bag).
Did you know that sunflower seeds offer 17% of the recommended daily allowance of folate in a 1 oz. serving? This essential nutrient is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells and is especially important during pregnancy. They also have as much potassium as almonds, offering about 200mg of potassium per 1 oz. serving, playing an important role in decreasing blood pressure and establishing proper nerve function and muscle control. I had no idea these little seeds were so good for me!
I could go on and on about the nutritional value of Somersault Snacks, but you can always visit their www.somersaultsnackco.com for tons of useful information! Let me tell you what you really want to know… Do they actually TASTE good?
YES!! I will be completely honest and say that I was a little weary to try these snacks. Based on all of the great nutritional factors, I desperately wanted them to be yummy, but I just wasn’t very confident. My husband refused to try them first because he said they would be “gross”. So I opened the first pack of cinnamon crunch and gave them a try. I loved them. They had tons of flavor, and just the right amount of crunchiness. I would definitely say the cinnamon crunch was my favorite flavor, with the dutch cocoa coming in a close second. I preferred the sweeter flavors because I considered these my “sweet treats” in the afternoon when I tend to have a craving for something really sugary and sweet to help keep me going through the end of the work day. I liked the other flavors as well, especially the pacific sea salt. The
salsa has a zing to it, and it was actually a little spicy for my taste (which
is 0… I don’t really like spicy thing at all). My husband liked these the most
when he finally came around to giving them a try. santa fe
