Food Review: Setton Farms' Pistachio Chewy Bites

There were so many products and companies at the Natural Products Expo I attended a few weekends ago (you can read about my coverage of the event here), it was just impossible to see them all! Which is why I am eternally grateful to companies that go out of their way to send me products to review if I missed them at Expo.

Setton Farms is one such booth I missed at Expo, so I was thrilled to receive their Pistachio Chewy Bites to try! With everything going on I didn't have a chance to write about these delectable little snacks until now, though they have been the perfect healthy, to-go snack for these insane last couple of weeks!

Pistachio Chewy Bites are made with all-natural ingredients, including nutrient-dense, California-grown pistachios, cranberries packed with antioxidants, a touch of agave and brown rice syrups for sweetness and to hold the bites together, and a sprinkle of sea salt. They contain no cholesterol, no trans-fat, no additives or preservatives and are GMO-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, kosher and vegan.

The Pistachio Chewy Bites come individually wrapped, which makes them great for grabbing them to-go for a quick snack! I love throwing a few in my purse on busy days so I can have something healthy to munch on, whether I am on-the-go or at the office. They are also great to have on-hand at home so I can ensure I am grabbing a healthy snack instead of loading up on junk food. I love how they are wrapped individually so I don't over-indulge on them, too.

I also appreciate just how many pistachios are packed into a bite - I'm pretty sure at least 50% of every bite is comprised of pistachios, which is definitely impressive considering that pistachios tend to be on the pricey side. Setton Farms definitely doesn't skimp on the pistachios, though, which again, are packed with tons of good-for-you nutrients. Pistachios contain fewer calories and more potassium and vitamin K per serving than other nuts, 25 percent of the daily value for vitamin B-6, 15 percent of the daily value for thiamine and phosphorus and 10 percent of the daily value for magnesium (source).

Not only are these really healthy and packed with essential nutrients, but they are so tasty! I mean, I already love pistachios, but with the addition of the tart cranberries and sweetness from the agave and brown rice syrup, the bites are delectable! Plus, they are also filling and satisfying. Just eating one bite can tide me over for at least a couple of hours, so they make an ideal mid-morning or afternoon snack.

I highly recommend these nutritious and delicious snacks for those that are on-the-go, since you can bring them with you practically anywhere. You can throw them in your purse, into lunches for you or the kids, in your bag or backpack, in your car, or just enjoy them at home. You can enjoy these tasty treats anywhere!

You can find the Pistachio Chewy Bites on Amazon!
