Adding Spice To Our Downtime

Spending time with my family has been the best part of this season of our lives, and we find ourselves indoors quite a bit these days; it’s still so cold out some days and we don’t even want to go for a walk around the block or play in the yard! Instead, we are relaxing inside, playing board games, watching movies, reading, crafting, learning with google classroom … and snacking. We love to snack, and we snack healthy- I always make sure we have sliced veggies and nuts on hand. It does get boring to eat the same thing all the time, so I recently introduced my family to the Original Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Almonds, a spicy, savory treat that makes one of our favorites nuts- the beloved almond- even better, and it was a surprising hit with my family.

There are three snacks I always keep on hand for the boys and myself- carrot sticks, almonds, and sliced red bell peppers. They are all crunchy and tasty and healthy (are snacks worthwhile if they aren’t tasty and crunchy?), so an afternoon spent playing Clue or chess with easy reach snacks and family and maybe songs or a fun audiobook playing in the background is our idea of the perfect time. We also sometimes go for a hike so make our own trail mix with a mix of nuts and raisins and dark chocolate chips. If you also like to keep mouth-watering snacks readily available when the mood strikes, Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Almonds come in a resealable bag that lets you pour out how much you want and easily store the rest away. The taste is salty, nutty and spicy hot! All the seasonings of the Sriracha sauce (aka “rooster sauce” because of the popular rooster logo Huy Fong Foods is famous for) are combined in a perfect culmination of delectable hot yumminess for an interesting spin on a classic favorite.

Original Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Almonds are hot chili almonds with hints of chilies, garlic and vinegar- the trademark of authentic Huy Fong Sriracha Seasoning- and they are perfect on their own or when added to a trail mix. While I don’t mind a little extra zest in my snacks, I was both astounded and happy to discover how much my sons loved the spiciness- for some reason I thought they’d have to acquire a taste for it, instead they just keep reaching for more. They prepare with mugs of water, and then snack on Original Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Almonds while they attend their online classes or play cards.

For those who follow a low carb diet, a single Huy Fong Sriracha Almond serving (29 almonds) contains only 6 grams of carbs, making it fit into most healthy meal plans easily as a great and tasty snack. The premium almonds are from California and roasted in peanut oil, and will definitely fit the bill when you want a spicy hot snack! If you love nuts, especially with some major spice, you are in for a real treat! Find them at Sam’s Club here.
