One of the good ones, Grandpa Po's
We get a lot of snack food ideas here in the Vibrant Life office - some are good, and some are... well. One of the good ones is Grandpa Po's Originals. Grandpa Po's are an interesting mixture of roasted soybeans, popcorn pieces, and a few other ingredients. The family recipe was created in 1963, and is now sold in three flavors - Slightly Unsalted, Slightly Spicy and Slightly Sweet.
We've tried the Slightly Unsalted and found them pretty addicting. Grandpa Po's Originals would make a good peanut alternative, particularly for those with peanut allergies. They also seem like
a good way to add the benefits of soybeans to your diet in a way that doesn't have the typical soybeans taste.
