Delicious, crunchy-chewy, and good for you–Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites, a perfect travel snack.
As a frequent traveler, I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve landed in an airport hungry with few dining options (and none of them healthful). So I’m always looking for healthy snacks I can to take along. Setton Farms has come up with Pistachio Chewy Bites, a delightful snack that’s healthful, easy to carry, and really tasty.
Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites are small, individually-wrapped bites of roasted pistachios, dried cranberries, and agave nectar. Their ingredients are roasted unsalted pistachios, dried cranberries (processed with sugar and sunflower oil), agave and brown rice syrups, sunflower oil, cranberry flavor, and sea salt. There are no trans fats, artificial ingredients or preservatives and they’re low in sodium and gluten, GMO, and are dairy-free.
Pistachio Chewy Bites are also heart healthy. They’re made with 50% pistachios, which are rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids like oleic acid and an excellent source of antioxidants. Studies suggest that regular consumption of pistachios may lower total as well as bad LDL cholesterol and increase good HDL cholesterol levels. They are also rich in carotenes, vitamin E, and polyphenolic antioxidant compounds, which help remove oxygen-free radicals, protecting the body from diseases, cancers, and infections.
Perhaps best of all, these little nutrition packets are both delicious and won’t break the calorie bank like many other so-called nutrition bars. A serving (two Chewy Bites) contains 210 calories, 6 grams protein, 6 grams monounsaturated fat, and 3 grams of fiber. They come in a 4.23 oz package (six Bites/package).
I love the fact that I can slip a couple of these little power houses into my camera bag for a quick snack—and feel great about it. – Bobbie Hasselbring, Editor RFT
