I’ve always resisted buying the somersault snacks that I’ve seen in various coffee shops.

I have no idea why. I’ve picked them up, read the ingredients and always kind of thought they wouldn’t be very good.

Thankfully for my sake, the lollihop package that I received last month had a bag of the sea salt somersault snacks and when I got around to trying them, I was so excited!

They were soooooo good. Crunchy, full of seeds, salty and cute! (Cute food is so much more fun to eat, right?)

Love: 

  • simple ingredient list
  • sunflower seeds are the first ingredient
  • nutrition stats: 150 cal, 8 g fat, 3 g fiber, 6 g protein (per serving)
  • delicious! they reminded me of those sesame sticks that are amazing but not very healthy…
Wish: 
  • the chicory root fiber was left out – I’m not really a fan of it
Have you tried them? I’m a little scared of the Santa Fe Salsa and Dutch Cocoa varieties, but I think I’d love the Salty Pepper.

    Great to know. I’m always looking for something we can take with us when we travel. We don’t eat packaged snacks on a regular basis, but on the road they come in handy when you are faced with the glaring fast food signs or gas station selection. :)

    You can pass the Santa Fe Salsa ones over to me if you ever get your hands on any- those sound good to me! :)

    I have never heard of these, but it looks like they have great packaging. I’m a sucker for CUTE labels…especially on wine bottles. HA! Yep, I’m that girl who buys wine, because the bottle is pretty. Oh well, sometimes I get a good one, sometimes I don’t. I’d try the Dutch Cocoa!

      I always pick out wine based on the label too!!! You are right – sometimes good, sometimes not.
