The holidays are in full swing – shoppers are merrily filling the malls, families are hosting joyous get-togethers, and ‘tis the season for snacking on sweet chocolatey indulgences! But indulging doesn’t mean you can’t eat healthy all while enjoying yourself. Royal Hawaiian Macadamia Nut, creator of nutritiously delicious Hawaiian island harvested macadamia nut snacks, has just launched new gluten free rich dark chocolate, better-for-you snacks: Royal Hawaiian Orchards Dark Chocolate Macadamia Nuts.
Available in three delicious flavors, the delectable dark chocolate covered roasted macadamia nuts are an irresistible treat for the holidays that boast a plethora of health benefits including being a great source of energy, high in monounsaturated fats, low in cholesterol and carbohydrates, and a quality source of healthier fats. A well-rounded snack any time of day, one handful has eight percent of daily fiber intake per serving for a better-for-you snack on-the-go. Flavors include:
- Dark Chocolate Blueberry Acai – a rich blend of deep blueberry and acai berry perfectly complimented by a dark chocolate exterior
- Dark Chocolate Blackberry Goji – notes of tart blackberry and goji berry that pair perfectly with chocolate
- Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Mango – sweet tropical flavors for a mouthwatering fruit and chocolate snack
Royal Hawaiian Orchards Dark Chocolate Macadamia Nuts are Non-GMO Project Verified, OU Kosher, and free of gluten, wheat, sulfites, and artificial ingredients.
Though deliciously sweet, macadamias nuts are also a healthy, nutritious, and all-natural addition to a well-balanced diet. Macadamias are a high source of protein and rich in a number of components that contribute to well-being, such as fiber, phytochemicals, minerals, and vitamins. Macadamias are also cholesterol free and have a favorable fatty acid profile that is comparable to olive oil. The macadamias contain 80% monounsaturated fat (the good kind!), which lowers overall cholesterol and harmful LDL cholesterol while raising levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. Macadamia nuts can be a healthy substitute for foods rich in saturated fatty acids.
Royal Hawaiian Orchards Macadamia Nuts are available at retail locations across the country. To find a store location nearest you, click here.
