Dealer Joe’s Seed & Bean Medley

Trader Joe's Seed & Bean Medley

Seeds and beans…beans and seeds…I like me some beans and seeeeeeeeds…..

No? Do not know that tune? Good, means you did not hear it bouncing round in my head.

Thanks for not being in my head. It is a scary sufficient place with out you there, too.

Truly, it is simply my lame try at making a tune for Dealer Joe’s Seed & Bean Medley. Different merchandise lend themselves to track parody way more simply. There’s not a lot to essentially sing about right here.

And never that a lot to essentially say, both. These kinda snacks should have their very own little area of interest market, with a loyal following, as a result of it looks as if each couple months some form of new dried veggie-type concoction comes up and on cabinets after which simply as instantly disappear. Some are hits, others….not.

This one falls someplace within the center. Actually, the spotlight right here is neither the seeds nor the beans…it is the corn. These large, crunchy kernels are harking back to different snacks, and are fairly popcornesque sans any hint of fluffiness. I like them, and the flavour of them mix properly in with the numerous pepitas and fava beans and different stuff that appear kind of  indistinguishable in the event you’re not them.

The most important downside? Once more, neither bean nor seed…however the peas. Foolish legumes. Actually, they’re the morsels that stick out probably the most – there’s an virtually earthy sweetness to them that kinda stands out inconsistently from the remainder of the group. Not terrible…however not precisely terrific both. I jusr did not like them.

The oily crunchy saltiness is the overarching taste, as can be anticipated. However a bit of one thing else to them would have been appreciated – perhaps a bit of ranch or one thing a bit of spicy – however na, simply salt. And why is not this labelled as gluten-free? Cross-contamination considerations that dangerous on the manufacturing facility? Jeez.

Our fam was break up on the snack bag o’ beans and peas. Sandy and our oldest daughter completely loved the combination, whereas our youngest and I kinda took a chunk or two earlier than dismissing it. Meh. Not my factor, however might be yours. And at solely like $2 or $3 for the bag, it may be…for virtually a track.
