Now, there are plain nuts and then there are fancy nuts! Ordinary nuts in their natural, unaltered state are excellent. But, some might say, they aren't very exciting and I agree. Luckily, nuts are becoming so popular as a snack idea, that some companies have gone out of their way to create interesting mixes, flavors and unique combinations that get me so excited, I squeal with joy when I find them! Here are some of my favorites:
Sahale Snacks: I love their Almond PBJ and Glazed Cashews with Pomegranate and Vanilla! But they also have some very interesting spicy varieties, too.
Emerald Nuts: I sometimes have their Cocoa Roast Almonds for dessert, they are so good!
True North: They have such a wide variety, it's hard to choose a favorite. Their Almond or Pistachio Crisps are a cross between a cracker and a chip. The Nut Clusters are like little chunks of candy. No wait... I love them all!
Look for these delicious, healthy nut snacks in your grocery store, at Target (True North & Emerald) or online. All of their websites, which are linked above, have convenient store locator functions to find a store near you. Go nuts!
