Basically I was sold after reading how incredibly nutritious these little seeds are. I was also relieved that there was no unpleasant taste to them as it always seems too good to be true when you find a super healthy food product that doesn't taste like crap (like greens+, blech!). I have become addicted to hemp hearts and my salad's, smoothies, and yogurt feel naked if I forget to sprinkle a few tablespoons over them.
