Phosphorous, Mangesium, Zinc, oh my!
Ok, that’s an overly used and overly trite intro to ANYTHING. But for realz, I’m very surprised at how low-calorie and supposedly all-natural these snacks are. I originally started popping pumpkin seeds when I heard they are a natural libido booster. Like popcorn at a movie theater, I tell you. But now I read the back of the package and the kernels of an entire package of DAVID Pumpkin Seeds is only 280 calories? That’s ridiculously healthy for gas station fare.
Not to mention, they’re ridiculously easy to write out messages with:
I went a little crazy on Instagram, as you can tell. Check out my handle @gas_station_gastronomy for more edible creations.
But be forewarned, the nutrition info on the package is for kernels only – I assume the shells have quite a bit of unclaimed sodium. I’m docking one point of satisfaction for incomplete disco lure of what exactly I’m putting in my mouth. That’s fair, right?
