Sahale Snacks

Sahale SnacksI’m a sucker for packaging. Cool containers just want to be fondled, and nice design gets to come home with me. It can be an expensive addiction, though knowledge is the first step right?

So, I tried some restraint with these cute nut blends called Sahale Snacks. They’ve actually been in the grocery store for several months now, and I am only now trying them for the first time. The packaging itself is a straight-forward pouch, but the image of the nuts is quite enticing! Staged like a severly lit still life, each package front spotlights the contained goodies cuddled by a petite small bowl (the images in this post are from their gorgeous website). I love little bowls, and nuts, so I swooped three of their expensive (right around $3 for 2 oz) little blends into my shopping basket.

Sahale is the name of a nearby waterfall, one of many that tends to spoil Oregoneans. Sahale (pronounced Sa-hall-ee) is a Chinook word meaning “High”… which gives me a good idea for my own homemade version of Sahale snacks for next year’s Burning Man!

Each variety is named to honor the region of an ingredient in the nut mix:

Ksar Blend
 
 
Ksar Blend: pistachio, sesame seed, pepita, fig, harissa

 
 
 
Socorro Blend
 
Socorro Blend: macadamia, hazelnut, mango, papaya, chipotle

 

Valdosta BlendValdosta Blend: pecan, sweet cranberry, black pepper, orange zest

These little gourmet snacks are a fun vacation for the mouth. They’re a bit expensive for casual snacking, but would be wonderful sprinkled in salads, on top of ice cream, or around fried fish.

These snacks are after my heart, I think I’ll let them in.

A friend sneaked a sample of these to me in a homemade pouch but didn’t tell me the brand name. I was very happy to notice them at our local Costco today! I love the Valdosta blend – very addictive.

I’m a big fan of Sahale Snacks. Last month, I went to Canada for traveling and bought a pack of Sahale Snacks Valdosta Blend Gourmet Snack Mix in a grocery store. I tasted and love it very much. After I went back to my home town, Hong Kong, China, I haven’t found any stores and supermarkets which are selling your products. Would you tell me your local retailer in Hong Kong China? I would be much appreciated if you can give me such information.

I’m not Sahale – just a fan. Amazon.com sells all their flavors.

cheers
