New favorite snack!

A co-worker left some tasty treats called Somersaults in the break room last week with the note, "Be careful, these are addicting," stuck on them. Well, she was right! Luckily, the bite size nuggets are pretty filling, so you don't find yourself eating the whole bag. 

Somersaults are made up of mostly of sunflower and sesame seeds...along with a few other natural ingredients. 

They come in the following flavors:
-Pacific Sea Salt
-Cinnamon Crunch
-Dutch Cocoa
-Santa Fe Salsa
-Salty Pepper

Health benefits:
- As much protein but less fat and calories than many popular nuts including almonds, walnuts, pecans, and macadamias
- Six times more vitamin E than peanuts
- Seven times more folate than almonds, cashews and pecans
- More fiber than an apple, and a comparable amount to a serving of bran flake cereal 

They are great by themself or dipped in Trader Joe's Roasted Garlic Hummus!

Charleston readers - you can find these at World Market & Earthfare!

*I was not paid or asked for this review. I simply like them a lot!*


  1. these are good! they're so crunchy!

  2. They sound like the perfect snack. I will look for a bag...or maybe I shouldn't if they are going to make me want to eat a whole bag!

  3. I will definitely be stopping by earth fare to try these soon. I love that the bag had a note on them. People in my office do that too!

  4. This sounds like my kind of snack! Especially dipped in the hummus of course.

  5. Yum, I've never heard of these. I hope your bridal portrait session went well today!

  6. oh yum!! i'm always looking for new snack items that i can possibly turn into dinner....definitely finding these!
