I was prepared to come up with a nice response after eating this, but actually, it’s really rather delightful. It’s incredibly delicious. Well done.

I tried Akua Kelp Jerky and, no joke—I was actually floored… ...This kelp jerky has a tender, yet totally substantial, texture.

Just received my pack of AKUA and it's so good!!! I'm so happy options like this are out in the world.

It’s really exciting how simple and natural the ingredients are in Kelp Jerky. It’s also soy free, dairy free and non-GMO. Clean and sustainable eating can benefit our bodies in so many ways imaginable. This snack is made for everyone to enjoy, not just for vegans and/or vegetarians.

The Sesame & Nori Sea Salt is my favorite flavor, and it’s so nutrient dense. It’s also healthy, portable, and flavorful!

AKUA’s texture mirrored animal jerky really well, and was just as filling.

I was really impressed with the flavor and texture and so has been everyone I've let try it! It really is Kelp Jerky like it says on the tin and tastes so good!

Aimed at the vegan market, seaweed jerky is high in protein, with a chewy-crisp texture.

Kelp Jerky replaces my popcorn for watching movies (and many more activities!) -- thank you for keeping me and the Earth healthy!

What we eat and how we produce it will determine the fate of the planet. Our kelp is as healthy for you as it is for the Earth.

And we're in the business of making regeneratively ocean-farmed kelp taste delicious.
