I think it’s called “Ocean Halo”

Because of the amount of kale chips in my life, I’ve been assuming this product is called “Ocean Kalo”… which doesn’t make sense since it’s actually seaweed based. So I’m assuming “Halo” henceforth.

Anyway, these are mildly flavored (in a good way, for reasons I will explain shortly) dried/dehydrated/something seaweed chips. The texture is unique; I’d almost call them the accidentally delicious love child of rice cakes and baked chips, because they’re about medium crispy and have a fairly noticeable grain.

The nice thing about not having a strong flavor profile is it lets the seaweed aftertaste through. Obviously, if you don’t like seaweed, you will not enjoy this experience, but I’ll take any victory over kelp I can get, and the fact that these come in a good range of simple but enjoyable flavors is just a bonus.
