To be found at any Starbucks across the country, Sahale Snacks has created a total treat for your snacky self. Thanks to their publicists, I got the opportunity to try three of the 15 products that they make. They’ve got Nut Blends, Glazed Nuts, Biscotti Crisps, and Seasoned Nuts. Everyone knows that the benefit of eating the healthy fats provided in nuts (almonds, cashews, pecans, hazelnuts) is irreplaceable, but who knew the blandness of plain nuts could be transformed into such a delectable treat!?
First up, is my favorite, the Soledad Nut Blend. A member of the Nut Blend family of Sahale Snacks, this medley of almonds is accompanied by dried apples, flax seeds, balsamic vinegar, dates, and cayenne. It’s sweetness and crunchy texture had me from hello.
After checking out the nutritional information, I was even more smitten. In each 1/4 C. serving you’ve got 130 calories, 9g of fat (.5g saturated), 4g protein, and 3g of fiber!
This kickin’ blend of Barbeque Almonds from the Seasoned Nuts family, has got a southwest style kick with a hint of smokey-sweetness added. The tangy buttermilk ranch flavor really sets off the dry-rub spice blend of barbeque, chili pepper, onion, and molasses quite nicely! Slow roasted to perfection, a 1/4C. serving of this snack will give you 140 calories, 11g of fat (1g saturated), 5g protein, and 3g fiber!
My second favorite snack sampled, were the Cashews with Pomegranate & Vanilla Glazed Nuts. Holy cow. This was definitely a dessert-like experience. The naturally infused pomegranate flavor really sets of the sweetness factor in these whole cashews. A hint of vanilla bean puts it over the edge delicious.
I love that this company uses WHOLE ingredients in their most natural form. Customized with unique flavors, they’re also preservative-free! They’re convenient for traveling, backpacking, trail runs, or anything that you need a quick energy boost in the most healthy, natural way!
Make sure to hit up the nearest Starbucks to try these out for yourself! 🙂
