SEATTLE, WA – Sahale Snacks Introduces a New Line of Glazed Nuts – Even the most health conscious snacker craves a sweet indulgence from time to time. But when the craving for a crunchy snack hits, the discerning snacker doesn't have many options. Sahale Snacks, the Seattle-based industry leading producer of epicurean nut snacks, wants to give consumers a healthy way to indulge their sweet cravings with some truly sublime flavors. That’s why Sahale Snacks is introducing a new line of lightly sweet Glazed Nuts. This new line combines whole nuts with unique, flavors and all-natural ingredients to satisfy the conscientious consumer’s need for a sophisticated snack.
The new chef-inspired Glazed Nut line maintains exceptional flavors through all-natural processing without high-fructose corn syrup, or other highly-processed sweeteners, and without anything artificial. Using Sahale Snacks’ glazing process, small batches of premium nuts and dried fruit pieces are glazed in kettles with organic evaporated cane juice and natural fruits, like strawberry juice concentrate for the Almond PB&J with Peanuts + Berries variety and pomegranate juice concentrate for the Cashews with Pomegranate + Vanilla variety. The glazed nuts are then finished in a dry roasting process, which seals in the light sweetness and the decadent flavor-filled crunch. This unique glazing process achieves an authentic balance of flavors from each of the carefully selected, gourmet ingredients, such as pure Madagascar vanilla bean.
“Consumers have told us how much they love our original gourmet nut blends and we’re very excited to expand into the glazed nut market,” said co-founder Edmond Sanctis. “We took inspiration from some of our favorite flavor pairings, including classics like peanut butter and jelly as well as new classics like pomegranate and vanilla. Our new Glazed Nuts have a touch of “Culinary Magic,” offering Sahale Snacks fans yet another way to go epicurean, anytime.”
Sahale Snacks’ Glazed Nut line features healthy, all-natural ingredients such as tree nuts, berries, and dried fruits, which are loaded with protein, fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. Adding tree nuts to a diet can lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease, and curb appetites. Tree nuts are also low in saturated fat and high in good-for-you polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. The sophisticated, but familiar Glazed Nut line varieties are a convenient choice, making them perfect for everyday snacking, yet gourmet enough for any entertaining opportunity.
The Glazed Nut line consists of three new handcrafted varieties:
NEW! Almond PB&J with Peanuts + Berries: Reminiscent of the beloved PB&J sandwich, our whole almonds are paired with peanuts and complemented with the summertime taste of raspberries and strawberries.
NEW! Cashews with Pomegranate + Vanilla: It’s the perfect combination of sublime flavors: pomegranate, vanilla and cashews. Whole roasted cashews are teamed with pomegranate and apple, and balanced with pure vanilla bean.
NEW! Almonds with Cranberries, Honey + Sea Salt: Taking honey roasted almonds in a new direction, these almonds are lightly glazed with the finest orange blossom honey, enhanced with naturally dried cranberries and toped with toasted sesame seeds and sea salt for an exquisite salty-sweet symmetry.
Each variety of the Glazed Nut line from Sahale Snacks has a suggested retail price of $4.99 (4 oz.) and comes in convenient re-sealable foil pouches designed to ensure freshness. Retail partners include conventional, specialty and natural grocery stores, cafés, outdoor and recreation stores, wine and gift stores, health clubs and spas, hotels, and more. Sahale Snacks are sold nationally at Harry & David, Amazon and most Whole Foods.
