We’re Nuts About American “Nuts About You” Ethnic Products
Based in West Hollywood, Nuts About You is a popular line of almonds in creatively flavored coats. These include the Latin-trendy Sweet Sriracha and the Japanese Green Matcha Tea and tropical Coconut along with the very American Regional, Cookies n Cream. They are softer than raw or roasted almonds and are as satisfying as candy without the sugar shock or after taste.
Before we finished the little bag all on its own, below is our family’s favorite in a summery dish, Cookies n Cream, an American Good Humor ice cream truck-inspired, healthy dish made with raspberry sorbet, no-fat yogurt, blackberries and raw honey with a sprinkling cinnamon over it. Cookies N Cream: Almonds covered in cookies n cream (yes, cream and all)
We started the next day with Sweet Sriracha in a bowl of steel-cut oatmeal. Adding raisins makes it a brunch-worthy dish.
Recognized as a Latin product of East Los Angeles, few people realize that internationally popular Sriracha (nam phrik si racha) originated in a well-to-do fishing village outside of Bangkok, Thailand. It is famous for originating Thailand’s answer to Tabasco, and several of Thailand’s finest and traditional seafood dishes. Nuts About You’s Sweet Sriracha flavor is all the more extraordinary when you consider that the flavor is most famous in its city of origin as a dipping sauce for oysters (hoi nang rom) or mussels (hoi thot) sold at street food in the open-air markets along the waterfront.
Amphor Sriracha in the district of Cholburi boasts one of the highest national capital incomes per person and is well known for a fortunate, fertile geography, favorable to farming because of its temperate climate and long (6-8 months) rainy season. The regional cuisines were influenced by the migration from Laos and Cambodia, seafood riches and the abundance of it’s tropical plants and fruits that thrive in the long rainy season.
Matcha Green Tea Almonds, almonds coated in Matcha Green Tea powder, features another current health trend. This special type of powdered green tea, most often grown and produced in Japan, derives its green color leaves because they are shaded from the sun for the last few weeks of their growth, increasing the chlorophyll content. Once picked, the leaves are carefully ground with stone grinding wheels to produce a fine powder. The powder can then be used to brew an antioxidant rich frothy green tea or in recipes like smoothies or baking to produce the calming energy and the life-balancing properties. The line also include Green Tea.
Nuts about You came up with the flavors because they were, “always on the lookout for healthier snacks. We couldn’t not eat snacks, but didn’t always want to resort to chips and cookies. Specialty snacks are a large category out of a 100 billion dollar industry, but so many of the specialty snacks we tried was too healthy and not indulgent enough.” So it was conceived as “a bridge between the tasty snacks no one wants to give up and healthy foods.”
