These crunchy, slightly-sweet candied pumpkin seeds are unexpectedly addicting, and have become our new pantry staple (and 3 p.m. snack go-to) (and cocktail hour bar snack) (and stocking stuffer). Aida, based in New York, is all about keeping it healthy... without sacrificing the mouthwatering factor. Here, salty pepitas get upgraded with a healthy dose of sweet, zingy citrus, and a subtle peppery kick. We’re obsessed, and you will be too.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
Once you pop, you won’t be able to stop – we love adding these crunchy morsels to salads, yogurt bowls, PB toasts and more. Oh, and it’s good by the handful, too.
Pepitas, brown sugar, water, sea salt, lemon powder, lemon oil, olive oil, smoked paprika, black pepper, vanilla bean paste.
