Oops… I almost forgot one of the best things I found at the Havana Social Club. While I was there, I saw that upstairs in the cozy VIP Nook, there was a private party going on — which I immediately crashed. People were sipping drinks and sampling a variety of snack mixes made by Sahale, a local Seattle snack company.
Man! These snacks were seductive…like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. Some of my favorite flavor combos were:
• VALDOSTA, a Southern blend, is made with Black Peppered Pecans, Sweet Cranberries and Orange Zest.
• SING BURI, Thai tastes of Lemongrass, soy glazed Cashews, Pineapple, Peanuts & Sesame Seeds ~ lightly dusted with Chinese Chili.
• KSAR, our Moroccan blend, is a piquant combination of Pistachio Nuts, Pumpkin Seeds, Figs and Harissa.
• SOLEDAD, a Mediterranean blend, is a sunkissed combination of Almonds, Flax Seeds & Tender Dates, tickled with Balsamic Vinegar & Cayenne.
The minute I got to a computer, I checked these puppies out and found out that not only are these ethnic nut blends scrumptious, but they are also really healthy; offering protein, fiber, vitamin E, folate, and many vitamins and minerals.
Available in 2 sizes: re-sealable 5 ounce foil pouches and cute lil’ 2 oz. packets that are perfect for an energy-filled snack to bring on the plane, tuck into your gym bag, or for a pick-me-up office coffee break. I don’t know about you, but I’m ordering them by the case-load.
