I'm quite impressed with Deerfield Farms brand of sunflower seeds. Deerfield Farms is a brand owned by Walgreens. You can find them in just about any Walgreens drugs store.
The package labels these seeds as "Jumbo" and they are indeed larger than sunflower seeds from most other brands I've had, including David. The kernels inside the shells are equally as larger than other brands as well.
Flavorwise, they're fabulous! They have the same great taste that the David brand built a reputation for. I've already eaten half the bag, and still haven't found any worms. I did find a few putrid seeds, but then again that's about the same rate I get with David brand.
Interestingly, the Deerfield Farms brand shows a whopping 690mg of sodium for a 1/4 cup serving, compared to just 135mg for David brand. However, I don't really sense a saltier taste at all.
As far as fat content goes, the Deerfield Farms brand shows 7g per serving, compared to 15g for the David brand.
But here's the real kicker. The Deerfield Brand sells for a really low $1.99 per 16oz bag. The David brand will cost you $1.99 for a much smaller 5.75oz bag.
Just to make the Deerfield Farms brand even sweeter, they come in a easy-open bag, with a zip-loc seal. I haven't figured out why David brand hasn't made that switch yet.
These seeds are awesome. High quality, large size, a full one pound, for $1.99. Thumbs up!
