Won't Miss #180 - seaweed-based snacks

There are a lot of people who love seaweed, or as the edible version is called in Japan, wakame. I say, more power to you folks for having the right palate to enjoy this highly nutritious (and cheap) form of plant life. Personally, I'm good with a little wakame floating around in my miso soup or in some stew. What I'm not good with is it being including as a major component in snack foods, especially those which are sweet. One of my worst experiences with snack reviewing was with Nakano Kombu, leathery strips of sweetened kelp.

I'm not going to miss these seaweed-based snacks.
