On our visit to Mercato Centrale, I found this: Sunflower Seeds Brittle. I wanted to try it since I like sunflower seeds and from what I can see through the bottle - it looks like the famous Romana Peanut Brittle from Baguio.
While writing this blog, I tried to check on any health benefits of eating Sunflower Seeds or if eating it can be a good substitute to eating Peanut Brittle. I didn't find any article in the internet that can provide that. Sure - eating sunflower seeds has health benefits - but I seriously doubt that I can say that this is a health snack. Remember - it is coated with SUGAR. Too much sugar is not good for you. So I recommend that you practice moderation when consuming this snack.
As for the taste - I like it. Using a word that I learned from my Dutch friends ... this food is "lekker". I know I warned about consuming a lot of it but I confess - I finished one jar in an hour. I bought two bottles - because they were selling two bottles for 150 pesos. The second jar remains unopened and I'm saving it for this weekend.
