The Snack Better Tour is Cruising to Los Angeles

By: Elizabeth Sommer in Taste Adventures

 

The Snack Better Tour introduced thousands of new fans to Sahale Snacks in San Francisco this past month. The Craving Cruiser is now heading to Southern California and we’re so excited to visit Los Angeles!

Los Angeles is an incredible food city - from the Santa Monica Farmers Market, to Grand Central Market in downtown, and all the inspiring food businesses like Coolhaus’s ice cream, Lindy and Grundy’s thoughtfully-sourced offerings, and Umami Burger – the burger that launched flavor-forward burgers across the country.  Our Snack Better Tour team is going to feel right at home handing out Sahale Snacks in this tastemaker town. We’re excited to meet tons of our favorite snackers and introduce them to our newest Nut + Fruit Mix flavors. We think our chipotle-spiced Almond Mix, Mango Tango, will be a hit this summer, because who doesn’t want a slight kick of heat in their favorite snack?!

Check our Facebook page for exact sampling locations.  We look forward to hearing your thoughts about Sahale Snacks too.  Be sure to share what you think by posting to our Facebook timeline, tweeting @SahaleSnacks or emailing snackbetter@sahalesnacks.com.  We hope you find our snacks to be Beyond Ordinary!

Sahale Snacks at the Seattle Mobile Food Rodeo

By: Elizabeth Sommer in Taste Adventures

During a typical May in Seattle, a lot is happening -  not just the rain - a ton of fun events come to the area.  Whether it’s a big event like a Sounders game at CenturyLink field, a concert at The Key Arena or the Sasquatch! Festival up at the Gorge.  Or, one of the smaller events like the Penn Cove Water Festival or the Bellevue Jazz Festival, we’re fairly confident of two things: 1. It will probably rain, and 2. You will definitely enjoy the event even more when you have flavorful snacks!

That’s why this year, we brought Sahale Snacks to the Seattle Mobile Food Rodeo.  It was a two-day event held in the International District and Fremont, and the crowd could not have been more pleased about receiving free samples of Sahale Snacks’ Almonds with Cranberries, Honey & Sea Salt.   Since it’s a food truck festival, you might be wondering why we were there since we aren’t a food truck?  But, we attended to be in good company with Soda Jerk, Uwajimaya and – of course – sample the food truck fair.

Next time you’re thinking about what to do on a rainy weekend in May, make sure you check the website for the Mobile Food Rodeo to see where the best food trucks will be gathering near your Seattle neighborhood.

With the warm, summer weather here, we’ve been heading out for hikes, hitting the trails on our bikes, and even spending time around the camp fire. If you find yourself camping, be sure to add the new Nut + Fruit trail mixes from Sahale Snacks to your backpack. They not only make an extraordinary snack for the trail, with innovative ingredients like lemon-infused apple, they’ll take your taste buds on a flavor journey!

Curried Coucous & Cashew Recipe

By: Elizabeth Sommer in Recipes

 

Since we’re all creatures of habit, we fall into routines.  We eat healthy, we eat poorly, we exercise regularly or we choose to sit on the couch.  Regardless of what your current routine is, you can break free from mundane food choices with this amazing Curried Couscous and Cashew Recipe.

It’s a Mediterranean-inspired prepared side on its own, or it pairs exceptionally well with grilled chicken, sautéed root vegetables, or even fried tofu to create a substantial and fulfilling main course.  The cashews add a wonderful contrast in texture to the chewy raisins, cooked chick peas and soft couscous, so you’re left with a satisfying crunch in every bite.
