#Sante #Nuts #Review



I seem to be on a roll with healthy snacks lately! Here's the latest one. Nuts carry a lot of good nutrients in them and are always a good, healthy snack. I was sent Roasted Salted Pecans, Garlic Almonds, Candied Walnuts, and Candied Pecans to try from Sante Nuts.

I have to admit, I normally eat plain almonds and I do love those Hawaiian flavored nuts but I don't ever really go out just to buy them either. So, 4 packs of flavored nuts are kind of an exciting new take on nuts for me. Sante Nuts was a family grown concept, created by Sara. Sara had learnt a secret roasting technique from her grandmother who roasted nuts in the kitchen for yummy treats. Sara continued the tradition with her own kids and when she became a single-mom 6 years ago and needed to make ends meet, her brilliant son suggested: "Mom, you should sell those nuts you make for us." I'm glad he did or else, I wouldn't have been able to try these delectable snacks out at all!

Besides eating them plain, you can find a variety of recipes online in which you can incorporate into your daily lives such as the Walnut Chicken Salad. Mmmm...it really adds variety to your food not to mention a great addition to any gift basket you may be putting together for any food lover this holiday season! You can buy a set to give or even just split them up into several different gift packages. Before I forget, these nuts are all natural, gluten-free, and kosher; meaning you can share the love and not worry about food restrictions! 

Buy It: Buy Online! Sante Nuts retail for $5.29 for a 4-5oz package and if you'd like a variety pack of all 4 flavors x 2 (i.e. 8 packs total), that's $38 or if you like a particular flavor, 3 packs of a single flavor run from $12-15. Don't worry though, with the holiday season, I know you want to save money so for my awesome readers, I have a 25% OFF code! Use 2011-Blog-054 which is valid on orders through December 16, 2011.
