High Qulaity Seeds, Sweet Bourbon flavor
on April 4, 2008
My work mates and I have been snacking on these seeds for three months now. We're happy to see they finally made it onto Amazon. There are two things going for these seeds: the quality of the seeds themselves and the interesting Bourbon flavor.
As opposed to an other non-premium brand sunflower seed, these seeds are far larger and thus "meatier". The seed inside is a satisfying size and the shells seem more moist and thus do not split into an unmanageable number of shards when split. The quality is on par with the "Spitz" brand from Canada for seed connoisseurs.
The flavor of these seeds is also interesting. Rather than deriving most of their flavor from salt, soaking the seeds in bourbon gives them a slight, pleasant sugary flavor which is then complimented by your traditional salty or spicy flavors. The sweet taste is unnoticeable at first but can be perceived with prompting. The main benefit is that the seeds are less salty than competitors and thus more can be consumed without getting a case of "dry tongue".
All in all, a great product and a great addition to the Amazon grocery catalog. The price is right as well.
Out of the three Jim Beam flavors, I think this oneis the best. Hence the 5 star rating for this flavor and 4 star rating for the others.
