SuperSeedz - Gourmet Pumpkin Seeds

Flavored pumpkin seeds? Sounds boring, right?! If that is what you are thinking, you couldn't be further from the truth! I discovered SuperSeedz, gourmet pumpkin seeds, at one of the many food shows I attend. Honestly, the only reason I walked over to them was because their packaging was so beautiful. They just rebranded and the packages feature a pumpkin along with pictures of all the spices and seasonings used in each flavor. They sent me all eight flavors to try because all eight flavors are vegan, non-GMO Project Verified, and gluten free. Yay!

There is something about how these seeds are roasted and coated with seasonings that make them so incredibly good. In fact, I started carrying these bags with me to outdoor events and as soon as people saw I was eating pumpkin seeds, they no longer wanted what I was having. But, with a bit of coercing, I convinced many people to try them and everyone who tried them, loved them. I knew I wouldn't be the only one.

One of my favorite flavors was the Super Spicy because they really are spicy! Made with garlic, cayenne, black pepper, habanero, and red crushed pepper, these would make a great topping for Mexican enchiladas!

As soon as you open the bag of Tomato Italiano seeds, you get a waft of basil that'll have your mouth watering. I think these would go great with lasagna and pasta.

If Super Spicy is too spicy, they also make Somewhat Spicy.  These are good too if you can't hang with the heat!

For your Indian dishes, you have Curious Curry made with madras curry powder. So fragrant and so flavorful.  The curry taste is not overwhelming at all -- very mild.

The Sea Salt are so salty and were just what I needed when I had a hankering for salt. These or the Naked ones would be great on salads.

Then you get to the dessert-type flavors. I don't drink coffee, but I loved the Cocoa Joe. Coated in sugar, coffee, vanilla, and sea salt, these would make awesome ice cream toppers.

Speaking of ice cream toppers, the Cinnamon Sugar would be great for that as well. You could also just top a bowl of strawberries and blueberries with these. They are not too sweet and there is just the right amount of cinnamon on each pepita.

I feel like they must have done a lot of taste testing to get all of these flavors as perfectly balanced as they are. Besides the great taste, these seeds are very nutritious too. They have 8 grams of protein per ounce and are a good source of iron, magnesium, and zinc. You can find Superseedz all across the nation for $4.99 per bag. To buy some on Amazon, click here

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that in no way influenced my veracious opinion.
