Yu Min Golden Buckwheat Seaweed in Penang

Whenever Chinese New Year comes near, there are a lot of goodies selling everywhere.
Thanks to Willy, I've gotten a chance to try out this special flavoured golden buckwheat seaweed by Yu Min.

Buckwheat is a type of healthy seed, it brings a lot of benefits to your body and keep you healthy.
If you wish to know more about benefits of Buckwheat, you may refer to the link below:

Yu Min's Golden Buckwheat Seaweed is an imported product from Taiwan.
It is a very popular brand in Taiwan and they sell all sorts of Buckwheat products other than seaweed. Now it has come into Malaysia and we can get it from Penang.

The packaging of Golden Buckwheat Seaweed is actually God of Wealth, what we commonly known as Cai Shen. The design is rather cute and creative, it is kinda attractive to me.

A box of Golden Buckwheat Seaweed is inclusive of 5 packets of seaweed, with 4 different flavours. 

Spicy Flavor
I wouldn't say that it is really that spicy, but it is due to my tolerance level towards spiciness is also higher compared to others. It is rather appetizing to me when it starts to feel the spiciness that comes afterwards. 

Almond Flavor
I'm quite surprised to find almond flavoured seaweed. They have actually added almond nuts into the seaweed that you can taste it together with the seaweed, not just the flavour. 

Sesame Flavor
Sesame will not usually be my first choice as I personally not really into Sesame. There are sesame seed that added together with the buckwheat. I could say that sesame really blended well with seaweed though.

Buckwheat Flavor
This is also the original flavor, which I like the most. The original buckwheat has made the seaweed itself rather crispy. It is sort of chewing chips instead of seaweed. 

You can see plenty of buckwheat stuffed between two thin slices of seaweed, and the crunchiness of buckwheat made these seaweed taste like chips.

The seaweed is also good for vegetarian, which is also healthy cause it is non-fried seaweed.
Seaweed is also high in Fibre, and this seaweed have not added any flavoring, coloring nor preservatives. All good for kids and elderly.

With every box purchased, there are free red packets inside the box of seaweed too. And the designs are rather cute.
