The Best Sunflower Seeds

After thousands of votes and several personal taste tests, we think the Spitz Cracked Pepper the best sunflower seed. We captured over 100,000 head to head votes in a pick ’em type functionality. We found that Spitz Cracked Pepper to win more than any other on the list. That said, Bigs Pepper and Sea Salt was a legitimate second with the classic and original tasting David Originals in 3rd place.

In truth, there are plenty of fantastic sunflower seeds out there. But, we think our list is as legit and defend-able as any.

Lately I’ve become very interested in sunflower seeds because in here, Korea, we don’t really eat them for snack unlike China or many other countries. I’ve been wondering what they taste like so I decided to order some of them on online (by using a freight forwarder). I searched every brand and flavor to find the best ones and your “Best Sunflower Seeds” and “Chinook Seedery review” was very helpful. I ordered bunch of them from Chinook Seedery and BIGS. Can’t wait for them to arrive! Thank you.

Great choice getting BIGS, cms. Most people agree that dill pickly is their best flavor, what’d you think of the ones you got?

Chinook has slowly taken over my top spot. The Hatch Green Chile provide me a touch of home (New Mexico). The Parmesan & Pepper (#9) are really good. They don’t tear my mouth up like some of the other brands. BiGS Tapatio Chile & Lime are still a very close second after being bumped from my top spot by the Green Chile Chinooks.

My favorite seeds that I’ve tried so far (and I’ve tried a lot) is Giant’s KC Style BBQ. If you ever tried Jim Beam’s BBQ when it was around, this is quite similar to their original recipe where the flavor is seems baked in.

I recently found Wild Dutchman which have much less salt and therefore don’t leave my mouth sore.
I love their Cheddar Dill. I’d rank them at the top.
