Brad’s Broccoli Poppers

img_2566Ok so before I talk about the snack itself, let me just start off by saying raw broccoli is not my jam.  Steamed broccoli = yum, but raw broccoli is no bueno in my book.  That being said, this snack was quite a pleasant surprise! I love the cheesy flavor and the bite-size pieces.  Felt like I was eating popcorn (but not really, ya know?)  Whether you like cheese, ranch, or garlic, this snack definitely satisfies my savory tooth.

Caveat:

Price – These broccoli poppers run at about $3.95/bag and there isn’t that much in there.

Sodium – If you’re watching your sodium, this might not be the snack for you.  It’s quite salty.  Make sure to drink plenty of water!

Texture – It’s kind of a love/hate relationship here. I’m kinda digging the chewy/crunchy texture, at the same time there is an inconsistency to it that makes me afraid I might bite into something hard and crack my tooth.
