Reaching for a salty, crunchy snack may actually be a healthy option in the near future.  However we're not talking potato chips or popcorn, we're talking about jelly fish.  Wait, what? Jellyfish?!?! While usually recognized for their squishy frames and poisonous tentacles, they're often prepared for human consumption in Asian cultures, with the body being marinated in salt and potassium for weeks to create a crunchy delicacy. However Danish scientists were able to expedite this process to create a crispy jellyfish chip in a matter of days. That means that salty crunch you desire could be filled with rich vitamins and minerals and unlike some other sea creatures that are overfished and harvested, jelly fish have a flourishing population. As for the taste?  Well, it's acquired but with additional research the taste could be more palatable for Americans.
