At Gimme, we get pretty excited about seaweed. It’s what we talk about, think about and maybe even dream about! To a person, we show up each day knowing our work is important - that seaweed is good for SO many reasons – for our health, for our planet, and for our tastebuds! And, knowing that we help others discover this miracle from the sea is deeply gratifying.
Yet, when asked, there is a bigger theme at play……the culture. We also show up because of the people we are fortunate to work with. As we reflect on the year, we’ve asked four team members to share a bit about why they love Gimme and you’ll note some consistency in their words: grateful, people, team, kind humans! Oh, and across the board, a love for all of the yummy Gimme flavors!
FAVORITE GIMME FLAVOR + WHY?
I love the White Cheddar Roasted Seaweed Snack. It provides me with my “cheese’ fix, without the guilt of extra carbs/fat that comes from a chip or cracker. I grew up eating only seaweed flavored with salt and teriyaki. Who knew seaweed could be even more tasty?! – Lianne
My favorite flavor is Chili Lime as it is the perfect snack to get a flavor kick of spiciness and seaweed goodness. - Varun
I love the Wasabi roasted seaweed snacks – the level of spiciness is easy on pallet. I eat it often as a handroll, with bitesize pieces of seared Ahi or Salmon. - Rich
My favorite flavor is Chili Lime. It’s a pleasing 1 2 3 punch with a little zip from the chili, a little tang from the lime and all sorts of umami goodness from the seaweed. Matt
