It’s no secret in my family that I am a “salty snack” person. While my daughter may have inherited her dad’s sweet tooth, I tend to reach for the chips & salsa or cheese & crackers at family parties. As someone who is always seeking a healthier alternative to cheese-flavored snacks, I was thrilled to sample Ocean’s Halo ™ Seaweed Chips!
Ocean’s Halo ™ Seaweed Chips are made from organic, sustainably harvested & nutrient-rich seaweed. It is also vegan, kosher & baked, not fried. I’m happy to report that this product does not contain GMOs, trans fats, MSG or other artificial “stuff” – so it truly is a healthier alternative for me & my family. An added bonus for me is that they are a low-cal & low-fat snack!
The Seaweed Chips come in four flavors: Chili Lime, Korean BBQ, Sea Salt and Hot & Spicy. I sampled all four & my husband tried some as well. As someone who grew up eating seaweed flavored snacks, we both wondered how it would taste. Well…we BOTH like it! Ocean’s Halo ™ Seaweed Chips have the seaweed flavor that we know & love, but contain extra spices that we really like (such as Korean BBQ) AND you get the added “crunch” of a chip. The crunch is what sold it for me! There is something satisfying about snacking on a crunchy chip as opposed to the paper-thin nori that we have snacked on from time to time.
My personal favorite is the Korean BBQ, but my husband loves the Hot & Spicy one the best.
So where can you find Ocean’s Halo ™ Seaweed Chips? They are sold in U.S. stores like Whole Foods Markets, Vons, Super Target, Safeway and Fresh & Easy, as well as select markets throughout Canada. If you are unable to purchase a bag at your local store, you can always buy them online at Amazon.com.
I am very happy to see that New Frontier Foods Inc. (a California based company) which produces Ocean’s Halo ™ Seaweed Chips, practices social good. Two percent of their profits go to organizations like the Monterey Bay Aquarium Children’s Education Fund. Also I love the fact that the seaweed chips are packaged in BPI certified, compostable bags. How cool is that?!
If you are a fan of seaweed or nori-flavored snacks, then you might want to give Ocean’s Halo ™ Seaweed Chips a try!
Do you like seaweed-flavored snacks? Of the four flavors – Sea Salt, Hot & Spicy, Chili Lime or Korean BBQ, which one would you most like to try?
