I am happy to announce that one of my favorite Gluten-Free (and incredibly tasty) snacks, ‘Sahale Snacks’ is now available in Seattle’s Best Coffee. So, with this exciting news, I’ll be sending the winner of my Sahale Snacks Giveway a sample of each of the two flavors that are offered at Seattle’s Best Coffee.
Last week, Valdosta and Sing Buri nut blends debuted at Seattle’s Best Coffee counters in convenient 2-ounce pouches — enough to share with a friend over coffee or to satisfy a morning and an afternoon snack craving. I surely stash these lil’ babies in my desk drawer…you surely can’t beat the crunchy, sweet n’ savory blend of nuts, seeds, dried fruits n’ spices in your morning oatmeal, atop your lunchtime salad, as an afternoon pick-me up to beat the 3PM slump…in your evening stir-fry or enjoyed as a dessert nibble atop Greek yogurt.
Sahale Snacks’ rich and peppery Valdosta Pecans pair especially well with Seattle’s Best Coffee winter beverages, like Vanilla Cinnamon Latte. The spicy and exotic Sing Buri Cashews make a lively accompaniment to tea, espresso, and brewed coffee drinks.
Sahale Snacks Valdosta is a blend of lightly spicy pecans, sweetened, dried cranberries and orange zest. The flavor combination echoes flavors of the American South and will pair especially well with Seattle’s Best Coffee winter beverages, like Vanilla Cinnamon Latte.
Sahale Snacks Sing Buri is made with cashews glazed with soy sauce and lemongrass combined with dried pineapple, peanuts, and sesame seed – all lightly dusted with mild Chinese chili. This aromatic blend is reminiscent of a flavorful Thai dish and makes a lively accompaniment to tea, espresso, and brewed coffee drinks.
And in honor of these two tasty new flavors, I thought I’d create a fancy, schmancy recipe using Sahale Snacks to show you just how easy it is to include them into your everyday eats…

To Enter my Sahale Snacks Giveaway, simply:
Visit the Sahale Snacks website and tell me which flavor you’d like to try.
I of course, love them all, but if I had to choose…I’d surely go with the Southwest Cashews or the Cranberry Pecans, which are a staple in my pantry as they always seem to add such a perfectly crunchy yet creamy consistency to any dish or just simply nibbled on alone right out of the bag
…(which I do quite often, hehe)…
