Warm, sweet, savory, spicy and aromatic Indian spices come alive in these exotic "trail mixes". I love how each variety is completely unique in not only taste, but key ingredients. All offer an amazing crunch, but no two handfuls are alike. My favorite was the simple yet addictive Golden Lentils, followed closely by the more starchy allure and earthy flavor of the Curry Crunch.

If you’re craving a savory snack that’s a little more exciting and nutritious than chips, and fits the bill for special diet needs (gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan!), then I recommend giving Zouq Snacks a try.

Zouq Snacks: Exotic Healthy Food by the Handful (4 Varieties; All Gluten-Free + Vegan)

Zouq Snacks are available in both convenient resealabe, multi-serve canisters (love these!) and single-serve pouches, and all are made with natural, legible, real ingredients. These unique gourmet Indian snack mixes currently come in four varieties, each with their own unique flair:

  • Jubilee Mix (far right in the bowls pictured below) – A unique melange of shapes and textures – dried green peas, peanuts, rice flakes, corn flakes red lentils, and more – but all with a boldly-flavored, fairly spicy bite that keeps you craving more.
  • Fiery Sticks (in back in the bowls pictured below) – Crunchy little potato-based sticks that burn a little too bright for our tastes, but are perfect for heat-loving snackers.
  • Curry Crunch (in front in the bowls pictured below) – Surprisingly sweet yet fragrant with rich Indian spices, this blend has a mix of both light crunchy and dense starchy textures.
  • Golden Lentils (far left in the bowls pictured below) – The least fancy of the bunch (yet the highest in protein), but somehow addictive and perhaps my favorite. Like rice crispy cereal only a little heartier and with a pleasant yet just-bold-enough savory flavor.
