Somersaults – Nut-free Crunchy Sunflower Seed Snacks that Your Whole Family Will Flip Over

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Monday, March 17, 2014 Under: Food Reviews



Nut allergies are a growing concern these days, with many schools banning any peanut or nut products from being brought on campus altogether. This, of course, is great for parents whose kids need to avoid these foods, but can make it tough when trying to pack snacks for your child’s lunch. And nowadays, with more and more companies turning to nuts as a healthy alternative to traditional crunchy and or fat-laden treats, finding nutritious, nut-free snacks for your kids can be almost impossible.

However, feeding your children foods that are good for them doesn’t have to be so difficult, especially with companies like Somersaults and their bite-sized pieces of sunflower seed nuggets.

Now, sunflower seeds can be enjoyed in a way like never before – as a quick and healthy snack, with no shells to speak of!

THE PRODUCT: Changing the way we view sunflower seeds, Somersaults are nickel-sized, crunchy, and almost cracker/cookie-like. Loaded with tasty sunflower seeds, each bite also boasts tons of sesame seeds and toasted grains, making them as tasty as they are good for you.

Available in 5 different flavors, ranging from Cinnamon Crunch to Santa Fe Salsa, whether you are craving a sweet treat or something savory, you will find it with Somersaults.

NUTRITION-WISE: Sunflower seeds are Somersaults claim-to-fame, and for good reason. As the main ingredient in each little nugget, these nutritionally dense foods are power packed with protein, Vitamin E, antioxidants, minerals, and healthy fats. Somersaults are also made with chicory root, which contains a soluble fiber known as inulin, making each serving a good source of fiber as well.

Free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), Somersaults are also made without using high-fructose corn syrup, trans fats, cholesterol, additives, or preservatives. Furthermore these products are baked in a nut-free facility, and even come with dairy-free and vegan options.

WHERE TO BUY: Somersaults can conveniently be bought on their Online Store. Or to find the retail location nearest you, please visit their Store Locator

FINAL THOUGHTS: Thanks to Somersaults, I have found a new favorite snack – for both me and my family! Whether I am in the mood for something sweet or savory, Somersaults deliver. Not only are these bite-sized snacks tasty, they are also nutritional powerhouses. Containing all the protein of almonds, but coming in at only half the fat, and with added fiber to boot, there is no feeling guilty after eating a handful of Somersaults, and no worrying that you are going to get a call home from your child’s school either.

The perfect snack for any time of day, Somersaults are definitely something you can feel good about!
