The pros: If you've ever had nori paper in sushi Trader Joe's Roasted Seaweed Snack tastes very similar. A mere 60 calories if you eat all of Trader Joe's Roasted Seaweed Snack in one sitting.
The cons: Seaweed taste might not be for everyone.
The verdict: For $0.99 this is a love it or hate it type of snack. This product is comparable to every roasted seaweed snack I've ever had at an Asian market. If you enjoy the taste of the nori paper in sushi this will likely be right up your alley. As the description says this is good for a snack or over a salad. I couldn’t agree more (if you have the taste of the nori paper in sushi, then please avoid this). As much as I enjoyed this, this is going to be a very polarizing item. You’ll either love it or you’ll hate it.

Would I buy this again? For me this is a yes, but again this might not be suitable for everyone as it is not a flavor everyone is guaranteed to appreciate. At 99 cents you aren't losing much by trying it. It makes for a low calorie snack and a great alternative to potato chips, kale chips, or other snacks that you might reach for. Personally, I preferred the Trader Joe’s Wasabi Seaweed Snack over this, but if it's not available I reach for this.
