I stumbled onto a new trail snack ,fried green peas from nutty guys.com at an albertsons store. A serving is 30 grms slightly less then a half cup. 120 cals,3 gms fat,18 gms carbs,7 gms protein,5 gms fiber, and 10 grms iron.
Which isn't too bad a balance, real crunchy. Haven't tried tossing them into anything [I ate the whole bag].
They also have a wasabi flavor.

Similar item I've enjoyed for years: wasabi peas - one of my favorite trail snacks. Usually available in the Asian aisle of the grocery store (Hapi brand is my favorite - no MSG).

10 grams of iron per 30 gram serving: it must contain nails!

Sorry, I just copied the nutritional value label without thinking what 1/3 iron might mean. I did just check their website and it doesn't elaborate further so it must be, duh, a label error.

Larry,

How do you use your compass with a belly full of these peas? Maybe the iron is where they get the "crunch".
