April 28th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
In the beginning there are sheets of seaweed, also known as nori, cultivated, harvested, dried, roasted, and packed exclusively for Trader Joe's. After harvest, the nori is dried and roasted with a touch of oil (sesame & canola) and sea salt, then cut into strips. That's it. That's the magic that makes these simple little snacks with an Asian influence so mesmerizing; the magic that gives them their light, airy crunch and their intriguing, nutty flavor.
Two things, however, are most magical about these snacking sensations. One, each serving (about half a package) has only 30 calories. Two, an entire package can be yours for a mere 99 cents. We'll warn you, though; the magic within each package of Trader Joe's Roasted Seaweed Snack also makes them irresistible, utterly craveable. People can't get enough. Customers have been known to buy them by the case, lest they spend a moment without their favorite seaweed treat. It's true.
They're portable, too. Pack them in your lunchbox, backpack or briefcase. They make excellent gifts for all the important people in your life, no matter what the occasion. And they won't cost you a fortune - as promised, each package is 99 cents, every day, only at Trader Joe's.
