All the way back in March I was lucky enough to meet the lovely Lucinda of Munchy Seeds at the Vitality Show. Following our meeting she sent me an amazing selection of seeds to review for the blog:
Coming in eight different varieties this seed haul included full size tubs of Vanilla Pumpkin, Chilli Mix, Omega Sprinkle, Pumpkin Mix, Choccy Seeds, Crunchy Bites and pour out bags of Vanilla Pumpkin, Omega Sprinkle, Chilli Mix and Pumpkin Mix.
I’ve practically used these seeds on every type of meal, from stir fries, salads, green smoothies, oats and even dessert.
Seeds are so good for you! They are bursting with vitamin E and healthy mminerals, however in most cases they are not the most interesting of things to eat. Munchy Seeds produce a range of blended seeds that have been roasted in expertly mixed spices and sauces to make a tasty and nutritional snack. Some varieties are sweet, spicey and savoury- so there really is something for everyone in this range.
Munchy Seeds are certified vegetarian, vegan (except the Choccy Seeds) and gluten free. Each pot is full of a mix of seeds ranging from pumpkin seeds, rapeseeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, linseeds, oats, hemp seeds and apricot kernals. Their unique blend of seeds has earned them the Great Taste Gold Award in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
I think these make a great and healthy snack and I can honestly say that I have really enjoyed using this product. They are very versatile and cater for a variety of different tastes buds. It’s such a great way to spice up any simple stir fry, salad or dessert. The Vanilla Pumpkin, Chilli Mix, Crunch Bites and the Belgian chocolate covered Choccy Seeds were my favourites. Other flavours in the range include the Munchy Granola, Cajun Mix and the Original Mix.
You can pick up a 250g tub of Munchy Seeds for around £3.50, which for a product that I use quite regularly I would be happy to pay. Munchy Seeds are available to buy in Tesco’s, Waitrose, Booths, Lakeland and online at Ocado and from the companies own online shop.
Have you tried Munchy Seeds before? What did you think? What flavour appeals to you most?
