I love trying new, easy snacks. So when Mamma Chia got in touch and invited me to sample their new Chia Squeeze pouches, I was intrigued. These snacks are a blend of chia seeds, fruit and vegetables in a convenient squeeze packet. These snacks are USDA Organic Certified, Non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, and 70 calories each with 6 grams of fiber, so they have a lot of interesting features.
Chia Squeeze comes in 4 flavors: Blackberry Bliss, Green Magic, Strawberry Banana, and Apple Cinnamon. I tried the blackberry variety first, and I didn’t quite know what to make of it. The texture of the fruity squeeze is like a very thin jelly drink, but the seeds are chewy; I wasn’t so hot on the texture and flavor at first. I think the Strawberry Banana was the best out of them, and while you can serve these room temperature, I do think they taste better refrigerated. Jai tried these also and was more keen on them than I was; I think the combination of chia seeds with the other ingredients is an acquired taste.
I did love how portable these are – with all the traveling we’ve been doing recently, I love having a handy, non-perishable snack on hand! These would be great for school lunches, especially if you follow a gluten-free or vegan diet and would like a convenient option.
