I highly recommend that you have a glass of iced tea nearby when you start eating these snacks! I really like this Apple Pearadise from Big Tea House. It makes a stunning iced tea, and the sweet, fruity notes of the tea go very well with the fruit flavors of this snack mix.
What I Think:
This tasty snack mix is a wonderful juxtaposition of flavors and textures.
The flavor is all at once spicy from the cayenne pepper, sweet from the apples and dates, nutty from the almonds, and just a little tangy from the balsamic vinegar. Add a little salt just to keep it interesting, and WOW! So good. It’s an exciting balance of flavors that is sure to make the palate happy.
But it is, first and foremost, a spicy snack. So if you tend to prefer your snacks on the timid side, this is not the snack mix for you. But if you like your snacks with a little bite – you should definitely look for these the next time you’re in your local Whole Foods Market.
The almonds are lightly glazed with a cayenne balsamic glaze and then sprinkled with flax seeds. This gives them a nice crunchy texture and a spicy, tangy flavor to go along with the natural, nutty sweetness of the almonds. Then chunks of apple and dates are added, which give the mix a pleasing sweetness and a chewy texture to contrast with the crunch of the nuts.
My Final Thoughts:
As much as I enjoyed the Sahale Cashews with Pomegranate and Vanilla, I think I might like this snack mix even more! I love the spicy flavor of this one… it is very warm but not what I would call spicy-hot… although as I said above, you’ll want to have that iced cold tea nearby to help cool the palate. YUM! Seriously, I loved both of these snack mixes … so much so that I may have to try some of Sahale’s other intriguing snacks!
