A Unique Gift-Giving Idea “From Colorado”
Need a Unique, Colorado made gift? We’ve got lots!
This time of year a lot of us are looking for a unique and unusual gift for our out of state friends and family. And preferably something that’s made in Colorado and that they can’t find in stores or shops where they live. Something that will remind them of you and of the beautiful state that you live in.
Well, if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ve found it. And not just one great choice, but many! We here at Sweet Almande have almonds, pecans and cashews in a multitude of interesting and unusual flavors (and two mixes as well, just to make choosing even harder). And all of them have the Colorado Proud logo on the bag. We have the traditional cinnamon almonds (only we turbocharge the recipe to really bump up that great cinnamon flavor), as well as our other best seller, the Vanilla Brown Sugar flavor (both flavors are available in almonds, pecans or cashews – again, we don’t make it easy to decide!).
We also have eight fruit flavors (everything from Apple to Wild Strawberry), seven chocolate flavors (including one spicy chocolate), and several savory and spicy flavors (ranging from mild to on the hot side).
And if you just can’t make up your mind, then try one of our two mixes. For the Crazy Mixed Up Nuts we take all of our sweet flavors (no spicy or savory) and mix them together. We have no idea exactly what flavors will be in each bag, but there will be several different flavors for sure. Note that this mix will contain mostly almonds, but that there will probably be a few pecans and cashews in there as well.
And if you want a mix of sweet and savory, then try our Harvest Mix (my favorite mix). For this mix we take the traditional Cinnamon Crunch flavor (almonds and pecans) and mix in our Harvest Spice flavor (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and allspice – a really nice, subtle spice flavor) in, again, both almonds and pecans. We mix the two almond and pecans flavors together, and then stir in our Roasted Salted Cashews. And voila!! That perfect mix of sweet and savory, and with three different types of nuts!
So there you have it – a (very) wide selection of fun and tasty gifts, and even better, they’re roasted in Colorado from our own recipes. The perfect gift for family and friends, and from a small Colorado business and not from one of the big chains that you can find everywhere. Bon Appetit, and Happy Holidays!
