I recently came across Mrs. May’s Cran-Blueberry Crunch at a local supermarket. I was looking for something a bit more healthful but on the sweet-side and came across these sitting on the shelf behind the gluten-free section. What’s nice about this product is that aside from being gluten-free, it is also vegan, non-GMO, cholesterol-, dairy-, and trans fat-free. It is also free from any nasty artificial flavors or colors. This particular variety was chock-full of cashews, almonds, and pistachios that were sweetened with wonderful sweet cried blueberries and cranberries for a bit of a tangy kick.
Essentially these are nut clusters not unlike a torrone candy but without the nougat part – think small square nut clusters. These do contain sesame seeds so any of my friends out there with a seed allergy will want to steer clear. What I really liked about these clusters is that they were just sweet enough (thanks to evaporated cane juice) without taking away from the woody taste of the nuts. The balance of sweet and savory (in the form of sea salt) is absolutely perfect. You can check out the Mrs. May’s Web site for their complete product portfolio and to order online.
