Fancy Foods Show

Our favorite red hot food trend (addictive) from the Fancy Food Show-is crunchy seaweed snacks-deliciously satisfying- with nutritious value ( Vitamin K, iodine  folate, magnesium, iron, and calcium) and blessedly low in calories=WIN WIN WIN.
These chip slayers have a naturally salty tad sweet crispy composition... and come in spicy and seasoned flavors as well as in organic choices.Popular in Korea as a snack-most companies we found- source from that area of the planet.
Offered in snack size single packs - for those on the go... as well as larger size options-which frankly, got devoured almost as quickly in our household-straight outta the bag, no serving bowl necessary...or sharing.

gimMe Organic Roasted Seaweed Snacks...USDA ORGANIC-in flavors -sea salt, and hot trendy- wasabi, chipotle, and teriyaki-non-GMO, gluten free, vegan-25 calories a tasty crunchy serving. Made from Nori or red algae...also a delicious way to add some salt hits to sweet deserts...crumble a piece over ice cream for example. Widely available. FYI 'Gim" is a Korean word- 'Nori" which is Japanese -both from seaweed

SEASNAX STIX crispy seaweed strips-no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives made from organically grown seaweed with tad 100% extra virgin olive oil and sea salt. Non-GMO, vegan----Stix come in sesame, original, wasabi and almond.  Also-as with many companies...other seaweed based snacks include crunchy chips 

sushi-sure-but we eat these crispy mild sweet-salty strips as snacks.
 EDEN FOODS is probably the earliest well distributed American food company we were aware of-selling organic, non-irridated and artisan-exotic (now mainstream) Japanese foods, assorted canned goods less potentially harmful BPA, BPS, PVC linings, and crunchy and chewy soup worthy seaweed vegetables-many varieties which they sustainably source from carefully vetted sources...including the north Atlantic.
delicious straight out of the bag-the Nori Krinkles convenient way to sprinkle a top pasta, grains, soups (miso soup),  salads
DULSE Organic Whole Leaf Sea Vegetable-hand harvested from Grand Manan Island-New Brunswick Canada-also comes in crinkles-is a mild salty tangy accent-good on popcorn, in grains, vegetables, pastas-baked potatoes-and in soups
