Munchy Seeds – Snack food Good for You..

0

We got a chance to try out Munchy Seeds, flavoured packs of seeds of a variety of edible items.

 

About Munchy Seeds

The healthy snacks were originally created in New Zealand to keep kids healthy and their hands out of the sweetie jar.

Now based in Suffolk, they are continuing the family tradition of carefully blending, flavouring and gently roasting seeds to produce a deliciously nutritious nibble.

 

What we got –

We got a sample range of their main Packs.

Chilli Bites

cb

Their Description – The Metabolism Mix – spicy roasted sweet apricot kernels*, sunflower & pumpkin seeds. This healthy snack is for the spicy food lovers amongst us. These guys have a ‘nice kick’ (not too serious though), but if you’d like to dilute the heat a little then try them in a tuna mayo sandwich, or throw them on all the usual suspects; salads, soups, stir-frys, curries, to name a few!  Perfect at the end of the day with a glass of wine!
*Sweet apricot kernels are not to be confused with ‘Bitter apricot kernels’ which if eaten in small quantities may be harmful. See our blog page for more details.
 

Thoughts – Flavourful and the variety of size seeds adds to the texture allot.

Choccy Apricot

caTheir Description – Choccy Apricot; Belgian chocolate coated sunflower & pumpkin seeds with pieces of dried apricot.  Choccy Munchy Seeds are a delicious snack. Developed through our passion for mindful munching, we have taken the nutritional benefit of the seed and coated it with luxurious Belgian chocolate to give you a nutritious nibble with a choccy fix!

Thoughts – Tasty. For a nutritional variation on a big fat chocolate bar – it still only seeds but you still get that “choccy fix”.

Honey Seeds

hsTheir Description – A delicious blend of sunflower and pumpkin seeds delicately roasted and coated in honey.  Perfect for a little sweet snacking and ideal as a nutritious moreish sprinkle over porridge, Greek yogurt, fruit or ice-cream.

Thoughts – Definitely wished we thought of putting them in porridge or ice cream. Not our favourites but it had a good taste.

Omega Sprinkles

os

Their Description – Savoury roasted sunflower, pumpkin, hulled hemp, sesame, linseed & rape seeds. A deliciously healthy sprinkle to top any salad, soup, stew or stirfry.  With the addition of all the smaller seeds like rape seed (grown by our local farmer), and linseed, not only does it give the mix an extra textural dimension, but it increases the levels of Omega 3, 6 & 9.  A cracking mix for those who want everything all in one!

Thoughts – Good textures and good flavours. Bit too much of a variety pack for us but it fits for those who like variety.

Overall Thoughts

Good variety of flavours. The Chilli Bites are our favourites with that chilli aftertaste it worked well.
