For healthy snacking this year, look to the sea. Seaweed, kelp, kombu, nori and wakame have been popular in meals and snacks in Asia for years, but they're now making it mainstream in the United States. Each form of seaweed touts different health benefits, but all versions are jam-packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, including iodine, which your body needs for a healthy thyroid. Not to mention seaweed adds a nice umami taste to any snack. Here are ten seaweed snacks we love.

Sea Monsters

For an easy snack that packs a lot of flavor — we loved the Korean BBQ — these seaweed puffs dusted with organic seasonings are a great option. The variety pack gives you a chance to taste all four flavor options, so you can pick your favorite, too!


These chips have the crunch and saltiness we love from any chips with the added benefit of organic kelp sustainably grown in Maine. These addictively puffed bites come in chili pepper, everything and sea salt. They stand behind supporting the oceans even with their packaging, which is plastic free and ocean friendly.

There’s a reason these super seed crackers are wildly popular. They’re delicious, good for you and packed with flax seed, quinoa, pumpkin seeds and brown rice. Seaweed and black sesame might sound like an interesting combination, but these crackers, which are made with dulse seaweed, have enough flavor you can likely skip the dip or cheese and devour on their own.


Sure, a veggie burger makes a great meal, but this one is so packed with flavor you’ll want to have it as a snack as is. These gluten-free and vegan burgers highlight kelp (it’s the main ingredient) paired with green chickpeas and brown rice with ginger, sesame oil and sesame seeds for a punch of flavor.

Barnacle Foods

Everyone loves a chip and dip moment, and now you can have it packed with a little extra nutrition from kelp. Filled with Alaskan Bull kelp and the usual salsa suspects — tomatoes or tomatillos, onion and chili peppers — you’ll want to keep dippin. Choose from sea verde, traditional or campfire, a smoky sweet version.


Roasted nori sheets could easily be considered the OG of seaweed snacks with popularity increasing each year. These on-the-go packs are perfect for school lunches, after school snacks or something to munch on at your desk. They are organic and come in flavors such as teriyaki, sea salt and avocado oil and chili lime.


Move over cucumbers, kelp is moving into pickle territory. These dill kelp pickle slices are just as delicious as their counterparts. You’ll get the same briny pucker but with the extra dose of calcium, vitamins and minerals.


These nori sheets are loaded with extra goodness (and protein!) of almonds, sesame seeds and a sprinkle of kelp powder. They have texture and crunch and might soon become your new favorite snack.


There’s no shame in eating this fermented seaweed salad out of the jar, it’s that good. If you prefer, add noodles or cucumbers to a plate. You’ll get the goodness of probiotics from the fermentation plus a good dose of iron and calcium from the kelp.


These highly portable snacks are fun to eat and are reminiscent of a savory fruit roll up with a little crunch. They’ll be a fan favorite for both kids and adults. Try them plain or in BBQ, spicy and honey for a little sweetness or even squid flavored for something different!


Trade in your typical granola bar for this bar made with sugar kelp. The natural saltiness of kelp meets the sweetness of maple syrup and brown rice syrup. Mixed together with sesame seeds, this makes a great afternoon snack or crumble it over yogurt for a twist on a parfait.
