Last Stop of the Snack Better® Tour is Austin, Texas

By: Elizabeth Sommer in Taste Adventures

Sahale Snacks brand ambassadors will be in Austin, Texas in October handing out wholesome, tasty Sahale Snacks to everyone attempting to “Keep Austin Weird.”  We’re excited for Austin residents and visitors to experience the amazing clusters in our Glazed nut blends, and the innovative fruit infusions in our Nut + Fruit mixes. We hope they enjoy the snacks as much as the people did in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle!

Whether you’re walking around downtown Austin to look for a fun restaurant, or your waiting in line to enter a historic music venue, be sure to pick-up Grab & Go Sahale at a local 7-Eleven and bring it with you.  It’s always great to have a satiating snack in a convenient size for when you’re on the move.

Remember to look for our Craving Cruiser near the University of Texas at Austin campus too.  If you miss us handing out samples, stop by Whole Foods Market, swing by the snack aisle, and purchase some Sahale Snacks Cashews with Pomegranate & Vanilla. They’re the perfect tailgating and football-viewing snack because they have a sweet-salty crunch that can keep your entire crew satisfied this Fall.

We’ll also be at the Arboretum, and Zilker Park, because we want you to stay fueled with delicious snacks as you shop and attend concerts.  If you need more Sahale after you run into the Snack Better® Tour, remember that you can always swing by Sprouts Farmer’s Market to stock up.

We hope you get excited about adding Sahale Snacks to your snack stash at …

Camp Korey Volunteer Day for Sahale Employees

By: Elizabeth Sommer in Taste Adventures

At Sahale Snacks, we believe in giving back to our community and one special partnership we’re currently dedicated to is with Camp Korey.  Nestled in between the beautiful farms in Carnation, WA, Camp Korey provides camp programs for children with serious or life-threatening illnesses. Essentially, they make childhood dreams come true, which is no easy feat and it’s certainly extraordinary!

This summer, Sahale Snacks employees spent two days at Camp Korey to assist with making beds, preparing the bunk rooms for another week of campers, and cleaning the dining hall. It was really rewarding to be able to prepare the rooms and know that another group of children would soon be having a week of fun and camp adventure.

In addition to readying the bunkhouses, we also helped the camp get ready for a farm-to-table feast.  We harvested beets, green beans and edible flowers to be used in the meal.  We also planted 150 ears of corn and 150 heads of lettuce to replenish the crop for the upcoming weeks.  The majority of the food eaten at Camp Korey comes from their garden so the campers are able to learn about farming and sustainability, while the kitchen is able to closely monitor dietary restrictions of the campers.  Another bonus to having a garden on site is that everything is extremely fresh, and absolutely delicious!

If you know of a camper that would like to attend Camp Korey or know of a counselor that would love to work there, you can find great information on Camp Korey’s website.  …

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.
