Although we are familiar with the ubiquitous labeling of pumpkin as passé, we can't help ourselves! The tiny pumpkin seed packs a punch, both in flavor and health benefits. Replete with zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids, and more, these roasted seeds are perfect for a midday snack or as a nutrient-rich addition to salads. Additionally, this sweet and spicy seasoning mixture is anything but basic. Introducing our signature "Five Seasoning"--use it on everything from pumpkin seeds to baby back ribs.
