Chia products are popping up faster than Russian troops on a Ukranian border. With protein, fiber, omega 3s and minerals it’s not strange to see why. Scanning my local grocery store for shiny orange “special” stickers I spotted Chia Pods in the yogurt case. I was excited because the package is very sexy and even included a spoon.The blueberry flavor only contains a few ingredients including blueberries, coconut milk and chia seeds making the product vegan. (A good rule of thumb is that anything with coconut milk tastes good).
The product is a deep purple color. When prodded, it moved in mass. This revelation made it seem both freaky and futuristic. Grabbing a taste using the spoon provided it was reminscent of an unsweetened jelly. I liked the slight crunch from the blueberry and chia seeds. You can make out the aroma of coconut milk too. Collectively though, it was a strange snack. I hate to say it, but if there was just a touch of added sugar, the Chia Pod would be much more palatble. Given that full price for chia pods is $4+$5 each I wouldn’t get this product again. I would be more forgiving if this snack came from the future but sadly it’s just from the present.
