For those of you who have never noticed, Sweet Almande roasts slivered almonds in our savory and spicy flavors as well as whole almonds. The main reason we do this is that while you can use whole almonds for salads or other dishes, a whole almond in a salad can be a surprise for the teeth, and we don’t want to be the cause of any of our customers needing a new crown! Slivered almonds still have a nice crunch without being too much for your teeth, and they add a lot of flavor as well.

Cooking with Sweet Almande Slivered Almonds!

And so without further ado, here are the flavors of slivered almonds we make and some of my favorite things to do with them! Roasted Garlic Slivered Almonds: A customer favorite, these can be sprinkled on salads or green beans for a nice crunch and a great garlic flavor. They are also great on sautéed […]

As much as we hate to do it, we are raising our per bag prices by a dollar for 2023.  Just like pretty much everyone else, our costs have increased dramatically over the last year or two.  From raw materials to rent and utilities for our commercial kitchen, everything has gone up.  We held off as long as we could on a price increase, waiting until after the holiday season because we didn’t want to make the season any more expensive than it already is.

Prices are Going Up for Sweet Almande Products in 2023

Not sure how it got to be October already, but here we are. And of course, as of the first of October our holiday flavors are available.

Holiday Flavors Are Available!

Well, our brand new flavor, Lemon Drop is now available for order online.  They have been available at the farmers markets since the second week in July, and is available in almonds, pecans and cashews!  If you haven’t been lucky enough to see us there and try some, they are, in my own humble opinion, awesome.  A nice, right up front lemon flavor, followed by (oddly enough) a fruity breakfast cereal aftertaste.  I’ve heard that the aftertaste resembles Fruit Loops, Fruity Pebbles, and at least two or three other breakfast cereals – but honest, no cereal in the recipe at all!

Good Lord, it’s August already.  Which, in addition to still more rather warm days, also means – back to school time!  Bad news for (some) kids and blessed release for (most) parents.  But, once school starts, comes the continuing problem of what sort of snack to give the school bound students.  You want something healthy, but it has to be tasty as well or it’s liable to wind up in a trashcan, or be traded for Lord knows what.  But of course, most of the tastiest and most popular snacks – chips, candy, etc. – are nowhere near good for you.  What to do, what to do…

Back to School Again!

Wow, 20 years since we started going nuts.  I don’t mind so much when time flies, but when it hits warp speed I start to wonder.  For those of you who don’t know how we got started, let me give you a quick synopsis.

It’s Our 20th Anniversary! Let’s Celebrate!

Where Do I Find You If I Can’t Get To Your Farmer’s Markets and I Don’t Want To Order On Line?

Well, if you work weekends and can’t get to any of our farmers markets, and you don’t want to order online, then we still have you covered.  Although, before I get into the other options let me point out that if the reason you don’t want to order online is the fact that postage charges can be steep (we use USPS Priority Mail – gets there in just a day or two, but it can be expensive) then you might consider ordering a few more bags.  We take care of shipping if your order exceeds $40.00 (after multi bag discounts), which means that if you order six bags or more shipping will be free (well, not free – we just pay it instead of you!).  And since our almonds, pecans and cashews freeze really well, you don’t have to worry about them going bad before you can eat all six bags.  Of course, for most folks six bags won’t last long enough to worry about having to freeze them, but if you’re one of those people with will power than go for it!
