Organic Black Chia Seeds from goodMix

While I'm out in stores selling goodMix it quickly becomes apparent which ingredients in our goodMix products are the most well known, there's plenty of popular ones but chia seeds in particular are the one superfood that many people are familiar with, and for good reason.
