Seaweed Snack Chips At Super Grand

We have reached a new frontier at Casa de HowChow -- the snack chip that was so unusual that Mrs. HowChow likes it more than me.

Fried sea tangle is a snack chip made from kelp.  It's a Korean crisp with the real taste of the ocean.  Salt from the chips, but also a sea flavor that smacks of something like a good oyster.

I smacked my lips.  But I admit that I found them odd.  I think I was expecting salt like a potato chip, maybe the taste of something like kale.  But the fried sea tangle comes with a hint of seafood, which seems right when I think about it but seemed a bit off as we first snacked in the car.

The Super Grand is a terrific market on Rte 197 in Laurel.  It's a Korean-run store like Lotte or H Mart, but it's a broader selection with Asian foods plus Hispanic, Indian, Jamaican and other cuisines.  Click here for all the Super Grand posts.

I'm having trouble imagining something other than kale chips too, but I'm intrigued!

These are my new obsession! They sell them at Trader Joe's and numerous types at H Mart, Lotte, etc. Great low calorie snack!
