    I have never ever heard of chocolate coated sunflower seeds! But I am not surprised that they would be addictive – as a wild bird feeder I can attest to the fact that sunflower seeds really are like crack for birds…

    Never heard of these either! Gosh, we SO need a Trader Joes and a Wholefoods here in Aus. Well, more than one, we need many!! I love the smell of the coast! ahhh salt in the air 🙂 Such a cute picture. I’m afraid of birds though…

    OK this post has inspired a new chocolate idea-chocolate petticoats! 😀 Come in, you know you want to invest Hannah!

    And your expression in the picture is priceless-it’s like you’re saying “Don’t screw with me bird, I have my eye on you.”

      You’re right Lorraine re that look – she was on top of those birds and yet she had them eating out of her hands!

      Totally have to agree Lorraine, that look on your face Hannah… leaves those wild birds under no doubts about whose holding the crack…, aaahhh, I mean birdseed 😉

    I want to print out that photo of you and keep it in my wallet. And frame another to have on my desk at work. And hang another above my bed.

    AND I HAD THOSE EXACT SAME SHORTS AS A KID. I’m almost positive. YESSSSSSsss. I had such an impressive collection of plaid shorts. It was fabulous. I constantly looked like I was auditioning for a role as an extra in a movie about sofa covers. I would be playing the role of the sofa cover, obviously.

    Anyhoo, these look delightful! And cheerful! They remind me of the candy coated fennel seeds you often see in Indian grocery stores, which I love 😀

    Hmmm, I might have to trust you on this one. I think chocolate things coloured wildly like this are like poisonous frogs or caterpillars- the colours serve as a warning that they shouldn’t be eaten. I am intrigued at the thought of chocolate coated sunflower seeds though, I just wish they weren’t done in dayglo. I wonder if you could make something like this at home? It would be very hard I suspect. Too small, and tricky.

    This raises some questions -1) what would birds think of the chocolate covered sunflower seeds? (don’t worry I understand you aren’t sharing or experimenting with them) and 2) why isn’t there a green in that colour mix?

    aw how tasty!!! Although I cant get over the fact that you let a bird sit….on you?! This bird-phobe would have died. Literally!

    oh I’ve never seen this before- I love all the colors!

    I can imagine how these would be good. I love sunflower seeds. And sunflower seed butter. And when I was not vegan and lived in the US, I always always ate too many Peanut Butter M&Ms. Imagine sunflower butter M&Ms…

    love this line ‘The chocolate was more of a petticoat between the candy shell and sunflower seed.’

    Why have a petticoat when you can have the full doona?

    I have seen these other places but have not tried them…yet. As much as I love nuts, I’m a seedy girl too at heart.

    Dang, I wish someone would make candy-coated chocolate that’s dairy-free and easy to find! I’m near a TJ’s, but can’t have these, so I feel your pain.

  13. Maria@TheGourmetChallenge

    This is a new own for me, never heard of sunflower seeds coated with chocolate, but they do sound tempting. I’ve I was a bird, I would scavenge for them too! Unless there were pistachios in there……because then I would go for those first.

    Well now we know where we can get some from! But it’s too bad Costco didn’t sell them in a 1.5kg bag. :p

  15. Conor @ Hold the Beef

    You can buy these in Perth. I have a packet in my pantry.

    OK, that’s it! I’ve been happily stalking your blog for a wee while from just over here in NZ (*waving now*). I was quiet when you posted about cardamom peanut butter granola, which I’ve made with some adaptations that I hope to post on my blog soon with a link back to your recipe. I bit my lip when you mentioned not just Tcho, but fruity Tcho, which I’d fallen in love with in March when I scored a bunch of samples while visiting my brother in San Francisco. But now this? I can not remain quiet when I see those little addictive sunflower seeds all happy in their candy shells. I didn’t expect to like them, but oh baby! It’s only sad that we have no regular supply down here at the bottom of the world.
    Anyway now you know I’m here, a fellow chocolate devotee, and happy to be reading your lovely blog:-)
