Snack Snapshot: Sahale Snacks

Sometimes a snack tastes great, but isn't good for you. And those healthy snacks? Forget it. You'll never get great flavor. I would say if this is your opinion, you'd be surprised that there are plenty of great tasting snacks that are also healthy for you. Meet Sahale Snacks.

I had the privilege of sampling a variety of Sahale Snacks products through Crowdtap and I can tell you that these products have great, bold flavors and plenty of protein packed in each product so you can go out on an adventure. The company doesn't use GMO ingredients in their products, is gluten-free and you can find a variety of organic ingredients in their products as well. Here is what I tried:

Almond Vanilla Latte Layered Nut Bar

By far this is the best product of the bunch. It has the kind of taste I love--a nutty, sweet flavor with just a hint of coffee. If I had to skip my morning coffee, I would use this as a replacement. It doesn't have the caffeine content of my morning latte, but it does have a great flavor that could power me through the morning. If you like almonds and vanilla, go to the store now to find one. You'll love it. I promise!

Salted Caramel Apple Pecan Layered Nut Bar

This variety of their layered nut bars is good too, though I think the name has an abundance of ingredients that don't all stand out in terms of flavor. When I bit into this bar, I could taste the chocolate, the salt and the pecans, but I wasn't sure where the apple flavor was hiding. It was still an enjoyable taste (although it may be too salty for those looking for a sweeter treat) and I will be eating these again.

Pomegranate Vanilla Cashews

This just sounds like a whole lotta yum, right? And believe me, it is! This is a great mix of flavors, especially for the winter months, because pomegranate somehow reminds me of snow. And the vanilla pairs well with the nutty cashew flavor.

Honey Almonds

Sweet honey, crunchy almonds--what's not to like? This is a another great flavor that works well as an anytime snack.

And I'm also going to point out that these glazed mixes come in the perfect snack-pack size. Along with good ingredients and healthy nutrition, the other main thing I'm looking for in any snack is easy portioning and portability. These mix packs (and the bars too) have all of that going for it. I will definitely be stocking up on these products.
