As we swim in the ocean, we quickly realize that there are no fast food restaurants here. No cafes, no diners. What's a mermaid to eat? A quick look around shows two possibilities: fish and seaweed.
What if I don't like seaweed? There is a way to find out: Sea Chips by Maine Coast Sea Vegetables.
Sea Chips are corn chips flavored with dulse and kelp... in other words, seaweed! Sea Chips are low in sodium and are certified organic.
As you may know, I am originally from the northeastern US. A friend of mine once bought me a Maine care package, which included a bag of Sea Chips as well as salt water taffy and seaweed flavored health bars. I really wanted to like the Sea Chips, I'm a mermaid after all. The first few chips did not taste all that good, but it was something new, and I was thinking that the taste would grow on me. I'll get used to it.
After several more chips, I came to realize that this wasn't going to happen. I had to admit to myself that I really didn't like seaweed.
It appears that I am not alone. One reviewer of the seaweed chips said that they tasted like 'low tide'.
Everyone's taste is different, however. If you would like to give the seaweed chips a try, swim on over to seaveg.com. One bag is $3.45 and a case of 12 bags is $37. The taste test will have to wait a little while, though. The SeaVeg store is closed during the month of August, and will reopen on September 4th.
When you start munching your Sea Chips at work, your co-workers will know that you're
crazy a mermaid!
