I’m not even going to pretend that I speak Japanese or know what “Tao Kae Noi” actually means. But after having these crispy seaweed snacks, I’m going to say it really just means tasty seaweed. Personally I love seaweed. Then again, I don’t often run into foods I’m not fond of.
These seaweed snacks were quite tasty. The good and bad thing about this snack is that it is just seaweed, oil, salt, and pepper. Its good because you don’t lose the natural flavor of the ocean do to excessive flavorings. Its bad because, although this was a decent sized bag, and I couldn’t stop after I had the first one, I was still starving by the time I got home. I’m not sure if we can even classify seaweed with the snacks, its more like gum or mints where you just eat it for the flavor. I just don’t suggest replacing the gum or mints with seaweed unless your date enjoys the smell of stale ocean on your breath.
I think next time I’ll try adding it into a sandwich or with steamed rice could be good too.
