We Tried It: Macadamia Crunch Clusters
Macadamia nuts are the king of all nuts, if you ask me. Prized for their exquisitely creamy texture, they're only elevated by these yummy snacking clusters. While they're definitely on the indulgent end of the snacking scale, we loved these sophisticated treats for their crunch, their savory-sweet balance, and their subtle fruit flavoring that still let the macadamia flavor shine through. One serving (approximately 1/4th of the bag) falls comfortably within our nutrition parameters for smart snacking: About 150 calories, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 3 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber, and less than 100 mg of sodium.
We found them at our local supermarket (and at World Market, if you have those nearby), but you can also order these flavors and other macadamia products via Royal Hawaiian Orchard's website, where they are about $25 for six 5-oz bags.
