I suppose that each of us has a different taste for salt, but I prefer the Kirkland seaweed to all the others I've tried from Whole Foods Market and Trader Joes. The salty taste make this a better snack in my book. I'd rather eat this to satisfy my cravings for something salty than the high carb and calorie alternatives: potato chips, crackers, etc. which don't have the beneficial vitamins and minerals I need in my diet. I bought this at Costco for $7.49 so have to make it down a star for the high price. However, if I wasn't near a Costco or was not a member, I'd be willing to pay this price for this product since I get free delivery with Amazon Prime.

After reading about the many health benefits of dried seaweed (rich in Vitamin K, folate, iodine, magnesium, phytonutrients and carotenoids), I wanted to finally try it. I was surprised at how much I loved it! Each plastic container contains many sheets of roasted and perfectly salted dried seaweed. They smell and taste of the sea, but not overwhelmingly so. Each sheet has a delicate, crispy texture, almost like phyllo dough. They soften in your mouth and turn into a pleasant, slightly chewy texture. Each plastic container of seaweed sheets has 100 calories. A perfect snack, especially if you like to snack while watching TV/movies. Low calorie and healthy! I will be purchasing again very soon!

Update January 30, 2014: I discovered why Japanese seaweed salad tastes so good. It mixes seaweed, whether dried or fresh, with rice vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, just a little salt and sugar, a little ginger juice, sesame seeds and finely chopped scallions. No corn oil.
End of update.
...

This product has way too much corn oil.

When roasted seaweed products first got marketed in U.S. major stores, they contained sesame oil and later started mixing in canola oil and recently a lot of corn oil. They use so much that the thin squares are very greasy - way greasier than usual for seaweed snacks.

Corn oil doesn't work as well with the natural seaweed taste. The best seaweed snacks use only olive oil but they're expensive. The next best use only sesame oil. Then comes sesame mixed with canola, then sesame mixed with corn oil.

I notice when I eat some, I am disappointed with the taste compared to other seaweed snacks but my hands actually get very oily. Everything I touch gets oily. Also, this type of oil isn't agreeable with my stomach.

Update January 10, 2014:

Whenever I had guests, I'd open one of these packages and have them try. Nobody would try more than one or two. I could not give away unopened packages. I threw out the remaining packages yet I continue to buy several other Kirkland brand items when I'm at Costco.

Now that I found these, I need look no further. These are the crunchiest, tastiest seaweed I've ever bought.
I am going to need to find a Seaweed anonymous group, though.
I'm so addicted!!!! So is my dog.

Better than chips! I have to hide this from my 17 yr old son's friends. He says they ask him all the time. "Did your Mom get anymore of that Seaweed?"

This package of seaweed is crispy tasty no guilt snack. A serving size of this is 20 calories,1.5 grams of fat, and a huge supply of nutrients. A whole bag is only 100 calories. Now fir the important part the taste. The Winter Harvest seasoning is basic flavoring coming from the roasting, sea salt and oil used. The flavor is basic like regular chips. This seaweed is more thinly sliced than I am used to with Japanese brands. The cut lends a wonderful quality where each bite while still crispy, practically melts on your tongue. The oil is a blend of sesame, corn and grape seed oil. Grape seed has beneficial qualities check it out if you have time. A good stomp will dislodge a lot of the salt. All these qualities make this a great addition to your diet.
It's seasoned with sea salt not fried into it. One good tap of the bag before opening will dislodge a good deal of the salt. Yet, the same amount of chips would wind up costing you 5x the fat and calories & no nutrition. So go ahead and indulge.

A co-worker purchased this product for me after we shared our stories of needing something to crunch on when we get stressed at work. I was telling her that I would rather snack on carrots, celery or apples when I am stressed; I need that crunch snack to ease my stress for some reason, but I need something health as opposed to eating chips, pretzels or the like. While it is a little salty, I truly enjoy the taste and texture of this snack and I would recommend it to those that are looking for an alternative snack to processed fattening snacks.

They come individually packaged in a large plastic wrap. Each is in a plastic bin with Silica Gel to absorb oxygen. It did not seem too oily or salty with or without rice. For value, go with Kirkland over Premium Roasted Seaweed Snack(Green Laver) - Pack of 8.

Why would you pay this amount when this very product is $5 at Costco. It isn't even the best out there. Its oily and salty which is why I don't buy it at that price. Just saying its silly to pay so much for it.
