Munchy Seeds Review

Review: Munchy Seeds Chilli Mix

So, seeing as I seem to be in snack mode this week, I thought I’d stick in a cheeky review of one of my favourite products. I’ve always really loved seeds from a long way back when I discovered their astounding health benefit. Needless to say, I was quite excited when Munchy Seeds kindly sent me some of their Chilli Mix.

So what’s going down…

We’re talking a few apricot kernels along with succulent pumpkin and sunflower seeds, coated in a reddish, crispy-spice kick. Yum. I was a fan with my first mouthful, so they certainly passed the taste test. They’re not too spicy, and this comes from me with an average spice threshold (although I can’t say I know how to measure that accurately!).

The good stuff

Seeds are nothing but nutritionally ace:

  • Full of the good fats we should be eating on a daily basis
  • A source of zinc which is good for the immune system and your skin
  • A little hot stuff (the chilli) to keep the metabolism revved
  • Blood sugar snack perfect as a source of protein

Conveniently these seeds either come in a big tub or smaller packable snack sizes. I found these lasted 2-3 small portions, making them handy to carry around and wholly versatile for:

  • Adding tasty protein to any other veg snack e.g. carrot sticks, celery etc.
  • Sprinkling on salads
  • Again adding protein to a predominately vegetable based soup
  • Giving a kick to a bland sandwich

The slight boo

The apricot kernels, which provide an unusual sweet spicy taste, are unfortunately not part of the smaller sachet packs. I seem to like picking these out of the tub and saving them till last. I guess in a mini seed dessert style!

Munchy Seeds Review

Munchy Seeds Chilli Mix aren’t as widely stocked as one would like – I usually pick up the snack sizes either in Nature’s Intent or Waitrose, but you can buy the bigger tubs in Tesco. If you turn out to be a big fan, I’d advise ordering online here.

I would recommend giving these a whirl if you like spicy as they’re a good all-round healthy choice. It’s always nice to find good sugar sensible snack options like this because as we know, choices can be a bit limited on the go.

Anyone tried these before or know any other good snacks to try?

    I like these but I prefer The Food Doctor savoury seed mix which are very low in carbs and sugars; about 2.4g of sugars per 100g. I can also buy them in my local Tesco store which is convenient.

      Lowsugargirll great that Tesco stock them :) It’s a case of finding stuff you like that you can easily grab. There are quite a few brands of these new seed type snacks hitting the market now.

      I look forward to reading more of your reviews on snacks as it’s hard to find low sugar healthy snacks. I usually snack on nuts and mini Baby Bels at work. It’s so difficult at work as there are always biscuits and cakes around. I’m currently trying to lose all the weight I’ve put on since starting here! Cakes are my big weakness!
