Sunny Seed Drops Chocolate Sunflower Nuts

Sunny Seed Drops are chocolate-covered sunflower nuts with an all-natural colorful coating. These chocolatey treats come in a 3 oz-sized package that's perfect to throw in a purse, lunch box, or backpack for a quick, nutritious treat.

In my opinion, these little guys are tasty! Delightfully chocolately and crispy, they're great for a mid-afternoon snack or an after-dinner treat. They're sodium free and contain 3 grams of protein per serving--plus, they let you reap all the benefits of sunflower seeds such as vitamin E, folate, iron, manganese, selenium, vitamin B6, and zinc in a delicious way.

One word of caution, however, take note that a serving size of the "seeds" is only 1 ounce, and NOT THE WHOLE 3-oz PACKAGE! These treats are quite addictive, and it is darn near impossible to stop yourself from eating them. Keep in mind, though, that 1 ounce contains 80 calories and 8 grams of fat (only 1 saturated)--so go easy and don't mindlessly munch your way into giving yourself too much of a good thing! My advice is to take a handful and put the rest away for later.

These are suprisingly good. The small size and the combo of flavors is addictive. I ate the whole package in no time flat. My wife, on the other hand, is not nearly as impressed.

I am not sure you really can stop at the 1 serving size, so you might as well figure you are going to blow through 240 calories before you get started.
As is typically the case with me, I was in some serious caloric deficit after a grueling 90 mile bike race this weekend. So, given that I have an insanely over-active sweet tooth, and I had a few thousand calories to eat, I figured some Chocolate Sunflower Nuts might start to fill the huge void in my stomach.

One handful was all I needed to be hooked. I looked at the now seemingly tiny package, noted that it claimed to be 3 serving sizes, and had to laugh. After a few more handfuls, it was time to get down to serious business, so I pretty much drank the rest down like a bottle of coke on a hot summer day.

Did I like them?
Like them? I’d kill for these!

Good for training?
Probably not bad, but they definitely hit the spot for recovery. Not that I knew it at the time, but they are almost the perfect balance of protein and carbs for recovery.

Keep out of reach of me.
