While walking the aisles at my local healthy food store Jimbo’s, something looking like a bag of almonds caught my eye, as I love organic almonds. To my surprise the label said “Hunza Sweet Apricot Kernals.” Hmmm, now that sounds interesting and different, as I had never heard of them before. After reading the label (As you all know I recommend doing so no matter what the product is) I decided to give this new little treat a try. As we all know finding those easy to carry healthy snacks is always a challenge and you can only eat so many almonds in a day. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised, as I was not sure what to expect from this new found food. The Hunza Sweet Apricot Kernels, have a slight sweet taste and do taste somewhat like an apricot. The consistency and texture of the kernel is pretty much the same as an almond, but just with a different taste.
The price is not too bad at $5.99 and you can buy them and other tasty snacks at www.gohunza.com, if you cannot find them in your local grocery or health food store.
I’m now hooked and have incorporated Organic Hunza Sweet Apricot Kernels into my between meals snack. They go really well with some sliced cheese and berries.
I give this tasty snack a Primal Power Method thumbs up!
