Santé is a nut company that recently had a Twitter giveaway. The first person in the United States to answer this question correctly won: What nut do the Swedes add to rice pudding for good luck? The answer is almonds, and I am the winner!
I got four bags of delicious almonds, two bags each of chipotle almonds and garlic almonds. Guess what? They are all gone! Yes, I gobbled these right up. They made a great work snack. Both flavors are very good, but the garlic was my favorite. The Web site says it has garlic, cayenne and black pepper along with a touch of pure cane sugar to make them “irresistible.” I agree! Sometimes products with garlic can be overpowering, but these had a perfect garlic flavor. Along with that touch of sweetness, they were addictive! The chipotle almonds have chipotle pepper, ancho chile and pure cane sugar, bringing a little more heat.
Almonds are my favorite nuts, so I was happy to receive these great-tasting ones! I see that Santé also has candied pecans and walnuts, and I’d love to try those. (Yes, my sweet tooth carries over to nuts too!)
