Pumpkin Seeds Galore: SuperSeedz Review

Who knew that pumpkin seeds came in flavors other than plain and salted? I sure didn’t until I opened this box of SuperSeedz sent to me to review by the folks at Kathie’s Kitchen.

With flavors including Somewhat Spicy, Super Spicy, Original Curry, and Tomato Italiano, there just might be a flavor here for everyone!

They are indeed gluten-free and top-8 allergen-free. Yes, they are processed in a nut-free facility (yeah!). Unless you are allergic to pumpkin seeds or spices you will find these to be very suitable. The spices vary by flavor, but the ingredients are quite simple – again, pumpkin seeds and spices. Only the Sugar and Cinnamon and Coco Joe flavors contain sugar.

I was most excited to try Coco-Joe. From the name I was expecting these to be chocolate, but they are actually a chocolate-coffee flavor. Despite a tiny bit of sugar they do not taste sweet; the sugar simply balances out the cocoa. I may not have picked the prettiest flavor to photograph, but you can get an idea of what they are like:

With the exception of the plain seeds, I think of these as a ready-made snack or something to throw in a trail mix, rather than seeds to add to your cooking or baking projects. Definitely a healthy snack!

Which flavor would you most like to try?

Are they free of any of the other top 8 allergens? They look tasty! Hope to find them locally~

Daniella, yes! they are gluten-free and free of the top 8 allergens. Actually, far more than top 8 as the ingredients list is very short. Woo-hoo!

Do they have a spicy version w/o peppers? I'm allergic to that plant family, unfortunately. Always on the look out for spicy stuff I can enjoy w/o fear of a reaction! :)

Thank You for your time,
