Dietitian's Top Pick - Somersault Snacks Dutch Cocoa



I flipped after my first Somesaults experience, these are quite the treat! If you are thinking these are probably a new and attempted-to-be-improved rice cake, you couldn't be more wrong! These little bunches of joy are made from sunflower seeds which contain 4 times the antioxidants than blueberries and 50% more protein than almonds - pretty impressive if you ask me! Not to mention that the Dutch Cocoa is chocolatey enough to satisfy my way-too sweet tooth! (that's even more impressive!) Grab yourself 14 bunches for only 140 calories and 7 grams of fat, way less fat than a handful of nuts! So go crazy and try a Somersault's at your next Market Street outing! 

Somersault Snacks get the highest possible NuVal score among sweet snacks with a 52 making it a Dietitian's Top Pick. Be sure to visit your favorite Market Street and see all the Dietitian's Top Picks. You'll find our cute faces on almost 300 items throughout the store.
