New Olive Oil Sweet Snacks Featured!
Posted by Olivia on Fri, April 01, 2011
We know, we’re biased, but we can’t get enough of snack foods made with olive oil. While we’ve been stocked up on olive oil chips, dips, and breads for some time, we can now satisfy our sweet tooth with healthy snacks also made with olive oil. We’ve just brought in three new artisanal sweet foods made right here in northern California—and we’re delighted to share them with you.
We’re getting a taste of old-fashioned, authentically handmade caramels with this delicious product. These small-batch artisanal caramels come to us from northern California and are made with pink sea salt—never mind that flavorless table salt, this stuff is where it’s at! In just one bite of these candies, your taste buds are greeted with creamy, velvety sweet and salty caramel all at once—these will be truly savored.
We’re suckers for crispy, crunchy, sweet and salty popcorn—but who isn’t?! Forget about those large tins cans of mass-produced caramel corn you are used to getting over the holidays; this stuff is the real deal. Handcrafted in northern California, this caramel corn is truly artisanal; it’s handmade with real olive oil. To give it a word: addictive. You’ve got two choices, the Spiced Almond Caramel or the Pistachio Caramel; frankly, we’re obsessed with both of them, so try both for yourself and decide which you like best!
We are loving this sweet-salty trend lately! Here’s another artisanal snack to get the sweet tooth going without too much sugar. Chocolatiers in San Fransisco have crafted a bittersweet chocolate bar that’s made with California olive oil and just a smidge of sea salt. Not too bitter, but certainly not too sweet, it’s the perfect after-dinner feel-good bar. We’re in chocolate heaven!
