SuperSeedz™ Snacks & Giveaway

I'm always on the lookout for gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free snacks to keep on hand for when we're on the go.

Second to gluten-free baking, sourcing snacks that my kids will actually eat is one of the most challenging aspects of cooking and eating the way that we do.

Empty Calorie Snack Options Abound

Sure, we love Glutino® pretzels—but they're totally empty in calories.

The kids like Enjoy Life® Cocoa Loco bars, but they're more of a "treat" as they pack only 2 grams of protein and 8 grams of sugar per bar.

And who turns down a Lara Bar®? We do. One Lara Bar can contain over of 18 grams of sugar (in the form of fructose)—a Candida flare waiting to happen in my kid's gut!

A Power-Packed Snack Alternative

So when Kathie's Kitchen contacted me to review SuperSeedz™ pumpkin snacks, you bet I jumped at the chance. SuperSeedz looked like the tree nut-free, nutritional snack that would fill the void in our pantry and glove compartment.

Kathie started making SuperSeedz in her very own kitchen for her very own family. It started with curry seasoned pumpkin seeds made in a cast iron pan on the stove and expanded from there. Today Kathie's Kitchen offers eight flavors.

8 Tasty SuperSeedz™ Flavors 

  • Sea Salt
  • Coco Joe
  • Tomato Italiano
  • Really Naked
  • Original Curry
  • Somewhat Spicy
  • Super Spicy
  • Sugar & Cinnamon

Over the 4th I served SuperSeedz at a gathering and everyone raved. They were healthy and good—seasoned just right without being obnoxiously salty or cloyingly sweet. I've been adding the savory flavors to my lettuce wraps and salads and the sweet ones to yogurt. My kids are hooked on Sugar & Cinnamon and Coco Joe—both packing no more than 2 grams of sugar per 1/3 cup serving and upwards of 8 grams of protein. Yes! 

Kathy uses only the "plumpiest" premium grade pumpkin seeds (and you can tell) for snacks that are loaded with protein, iron, are low in carbs and are naturally vegan, gluten-free, tree nut-free, peanut free, dairy-free, MSG-free and soy-free. 

Of note: Today China produces more pumpkins and pumpkin seeds than any other country (and this includes organic varieties)—and that is where Kathie's Kitchen sources theirs. I would hope U.S. sources would be considered in the future. SuperSeedz are such a great tasting snack ... if the seeds were grown in the U.S. they'd be even better.
