Trader Joe's Rosemary & Thyme Maple Toffee Sunflower Seeds
I had never heard of these until a few weeks ago when my local Trader Joe's had strategically placed them right next to the bagged salads. It certainly seemed like they might make a nice addition to a green salad.
Between the sunflower seeds, the rosemary, the thyme, the maple, and the toffee, you'd expect these to add a lot of complex flavors to the salad--but they don't seem to. They definitely add crunchy texture, which is nice. But beyond that, I get a general sweetness, and not much else. I can't discern any of the specific four flavors that these are supposed to convey.
I'm not a fan of sunflower seeds as a snack, so I haven't tried them on their own.
Will I buy it again?
