You’ll go nuts for these candied nuts! Bathed and baked in a bold blend of spices, they’re simultaneously sweet and savory. We’re not talking peanuts here; this jar is filled to the brim with plump almonds, cashews and pecans.
I received a packet of these nuts in my November Goodies Box.
These candied nuts make a wonderful tea time snack. They’re so flavorful and I love that gentle nudging of the spices in these nuts, so I wanted something that would bring out some of those warm spices even more. So I made a chai latte, and I found that this Masala Chai from Blue Lotus Chai made a perfect chai to go with these sweet, salty and warmly spiced nuts.
What I Think:
Yummy! I’m totally loving these nuts!
When I first opened the pouch, I was kind of “ho-hum … another batch of flavored nuts.” So I popped the first one in my mouth without paying much attention, and WOW! These taste amazing!
First of all, I love that it’s a blend of mixed nuts: almonds, cashews and pecans. Then the nuts are candied in a sugar and spice combination that is a little bit sweet and a little bit savory. The result is a crunchy, toasty, salty, sweet and warmly spiced mix of nuts, and I’m going nuts for this! I love the contrast in flavors, I love the crunchy texture of the nuts together with the subtle chewy texture of the candied coating.
These are so tasty and completely irresistible. Before I knew it, my package was empty! I want more!
My Final Thoughts:
I only wish that the sample bag that I received in this month’s Goodie box wasn’t so small, because it was gone way too fast. I don’t think that this is going to be available in the stores, so I think I’m going to actually have to order more of this … and I definitely will be doing just that!
