DAAAAD!! Mom's Feeding Us Seaweed Again!

You all know I like fruits and vegetables.  Probably more than the average person.  I've always been that way.  Anyhow, I'm laying the foundation here for my new favorite snack.  Because you are really going to think I've lost my marbles over this one.  I can't seem to stop!  I absolutely love Trader Joe's Roasted Seaweed Snack.  You can eat the entire bag (which is 2 servings) in just 60 calories.  I apologize for the smears on my pictures.  Apparently little fingers got ahold of the camera.

Cort said, "NO WAY.  Get that green stuff outta here".  Reid, who eats anything, said, "Mmm, tasty"

Huh.  Turned out he liked it.

Uh oh.  He really likes it. And we don't have a Trader Joes anywhere close - it's a 3 hour drive!
I really didn't want to share all of my roasted seaweed.

The only drawback is that it does tend to get stuck in your teeth in funny ways...
Do you have a snack that you love that's a little bit off the beaten path of normal?

Please stop by to enter my giveaway for fun beauty supplies here!

I'll pass on the seaweed but your boys are adorable!

TexWisGirl said...

ick! don't like the fishiness of seaweed! so unless they roast it out of there, i won't raid your stash...

no odd snacks here. at least none i can think of off-hand.

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Okay, I'm officially going to start worrying about you! Haha! That just looks nasty, Lisa. I think I'll pass.

Oh, and Oreo has 100 calorie packs. Just sayin... :)

Samantha said...

It is really good!
Whole Foods has it, too..but ugh what a drive for us.
The boys are beyond adorable.

Melodie said...

What cute picts! Especially that last one!

Mildred said...

We have a Trader Joe's near John's Dr. in Atlanta about an hour away. I love to walk thru and browse at all the good stuff! I have not tried this yet. The boys' expressions are priceless!

Little Wonders' Days said...

We love these too! I can barely get them in the house before several packs are gone.

w said...

it looks good to me. it reminds me of the seaweed they wrap around chinese crackers.

i want to try it.

send some to me. but not the one that cort spit out. i want a new piece.

Valerie said...

I've had other interesting things from Trader Joe's-but never their roasted seaweed. I've had their chocolate covered raspberry bit things. Those are very good too.

A certain husband in this house-I won't name names, likes to eat a piece of cheddar cheese covered with peanut butter for a snack.

I've never tried that either...but he swears it's really good!

Michaele said...

I was good up until the "stuck in your teeth" part. We like Tofu on rice cakes and people are pretty weirded out by that.

Sonya Heilmann said...

Hahaha! I love that Reid enjoyed them, too! Cort has that "You must be JOKING!" look on his face!

You know, I would try those things, just to see what they taste like. I mean, I eat sushi with the non-roasted "fresh" stuff, right? But we don't have a TJs near us, either. The closest one just opened up near my parents (about 130 miles away).

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

I love the pictures. We don't have any crazy snacks, but I've been meaning to try a couple things--roasted Kale and roasted chick peas. I'm a little skeptical of both, but I hear they are tasty. :)

I'm sad we don't have Trader Joes.

Ginny said...

I'm not surprised at all that Reid likes the seaweed. No matter how it tastes, it's got to be better than the poisonous items he favors!! Our nearest Trader Joes is in Short Pump, about an hour and ten minutes away. Is that the one you are referring to? I just got back from there last night. How did you get the seaweed? The last picture is a scream!

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Really? Roasted seaweed? I think I'd give it a taste.

Dianna said...

I think I would tend to agree with Cort. Yuk. Although I really shouldn't say that since I've never tried roasted seawood. How's about I just take Cort's word for it!?
I don't really have any strange snacks. But I do love Emerald Cinnamon Roast almonds. Yum.

Amish Stories said...

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

So cute and I bet it is good...

Angela said...

Oh girl! Didn't your momma ever feed you some real food? Oh, and is that what you are trying to grow in your swimming pool? Whew! I'm on a roll! Rolling on the floor laughing out loud!

Have a Great Day!
Angela

Chatty Crone said...

So tell me this - just what does it taste like - exactly???

Farmchick said...

lol I like that last pic! I would like to try this as I do like different types of snacks. I like beet chips. Very yummy.

Debbie @ Swampbilly Ranch said...

Off the beaten path? That's WAY off the path! The boys are too cute!

camp and cottage living said...

Well if those little guys say it's good, then it must taste OK.
A favorite snack I like is Stergings Potato chips. But I can only get them when I go back to Iowa.

Tiggeriffic said...

Mmmmmm it looks to green for me. rubbery. Seaweed~! are you desparate? There is suppose to be good vitamins in that green stuff.. I'll just take a vitamin pill.
Your boys look like they are enjoying the green seaweed.. Good for them~!
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

GardenofDaisies said...

Oh that is so cute! Better get that boy eating sushi! Seaweed if definitely better than A and D ointment!

GardenofDaisies said...

PS- Thank you for being my 400th follower!!! I think this calls for a special prize!!! Better send me your mailing address. I've got a Trader Joes' not far from me and I'm pickin' up some seaweed snacks. :-)

Myya said...

Hmmmm I'll have to try those. We just got a Trader Joes in the town right next to me... only maybe 15 -20 minutes away YAY!!! :)

Andrea (ace1028) said...

Gosh, they are getting so big, How is it I feel like I know them when I've only just met you IRL? ;)

Sarah said...

That sounds pretty good. It kind of looks like a fruit rollup. I'll have to try that. I wonder if you can buy it online :)

jennohara said...

Haha!! Funny! I have NEVER heard of that before! Love the pictures...too cute!

le Chef said...

Gravlax. It's a salmon dish thing. Thankfully I live in the Pacific Northwest so I have lots of fresh salmon .. and the whole chef thing - some pretty good gravlax recipes.
I also like roasted chard. Throw on a little seasoning and they're better than chips - love em!

We have tons of seaweed all over here, but I can't say I like it.

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

Cute rascals you got there! No weird snacks for me...I'm not the most adventurous eater ;)
