Snacktion: Salty Pepper Somersaults

Posted By on Mon, Jul 27, 2009 at 10:39 AM

Name: Salty Pepper Somersaults
Brand: Somersault Snack Co.
Origin: Berkeley
Found at: The Good Life (448 Cortland at Gates)
Cost: $1.79
Ingredients: Sunflower seeds, wheat flour, seasoning, whole wheat flour, sesame seeds, vital wheat gluten, expeller pressed high oleic sunflower oil, chicory root fiber, evaporated cane juice, modified food starch, sea salt.
Calories per serving: 160
The word: These pirate-themed nuggets are the latest weapon in the war against the evil fats and chemical weirdness of potato chips.
Tasting notes: A satisfying crunch, followed by the discovery of whole sunflower seeds in the middle. They're thankfully not over-seasoned, so the flavors of the grains really come through.
Buy it again? Sure, especially when we're feeling too guilty to buy chips. 
Extra credit: Somersaults are also available in S.S. Sea Salt and Chez Cocoa flavors.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
