Green Chopsticks offers roasted seaweed crisps

Sometimes snack time gets boring with the usual pretzels, crackers and popcorn. Thanks to Green Chopsticks, we now have another option – Roasted Seaweed Crisps. These bad boys are vegan-friendly and come in three flavors: Original, Green Tea, and Spicy.

The ingredient list for all flavors is very simple. All contain seaweed, (non GMO) corn oil, sesame oil, and sea salt. The Green Tea also contains green-tea powder and the Spicy has chili pepper powder added. Not only are the crisps vegan they are naturally gluten-free and MSG-free.

"These roasted seaweed crisp are cultivated in SW Korea, receive a rigorous radiation test before they are exported to our facilities in Alhambra, CA," says Green Chopsticks. "The combination of our seaweed crisp being rated Grade A, harvested at a younger age, and roasted with less salt and oil than our competitors, allows us to make the claim that we provide seaweed crisp utilizing their highest health value."

Our friends at Green Chopsticks sent us a case of the seaweed crisps to enjoy. And boy oh boy, did we enjoy! Admittedly, the Spicy was way too spicy for this gal, but those who enjoy hot stuff, will love the flavor and heat from the snack. Personally, I liked the Original and Green Tea equally – I’m not one who has a hard time controlling myself, but it really was hard to stop eating these things.

Currently Green Chopsticks offers samples of the product at various Costco locations throughout California. If you aren’t in the Golden State, the Roasted Seaweed Crisps can be purchased, by the case, through Amazon.com.

So if you are looking for a different kind of snack, consider giving Green Chopstick's Roasted Seaweed Crisps a try.
