I love giving my guests healthy options to snack on when they visit.  Nuts are one of my top options. 

Specializing in nutritious, local, and high-quality Turkish nutsOtto Nuts is launching four new flavorful protein-rich snacks.

PITTSBURGH, PA (OCTOBER 2023) –Healthy indulgence is all the rage when it comes to snacking, with 71% of people snacking every day and 78% of people making room for indulgences in their diet.[1] Due to their fiber and protein-rich content, nuts and chickpeas often top RD’s lists of healthiest snacks.[2] It’s time to make these nutrient-packed snacks a little more indulgent. Otto Nuts®, a brand by Milhans Foods, is releasing four new protein-rich snacks featuring hazelnuts and chickpeas, with caramelized sugar & honey.

Hazelnuts are an incredibly nutritious and adventurous addition to the American palate; they contain fiber, antioxidants, and an array of vitamins and minerals; they’re good for heart health, decrease inflammation, and can help prevent disease.[3] Chickpeas make satiating snacks, they are rich in protein and fiber, and support digestive and brain health and disease prevention.[4] With all of these amazing benefits, it’s a wonder that Americans don’t eat more of these protein-rich snack foods. Otto Nuts, the leading purveyor of sustainably grown dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and pulses from the Mediterranean region, has created nutritious yet indulgent snacks, using these nutrient-dense ingredients as a base, designed to excite and entice the American palate.

Otto Nuts’ four new “healthy indulgent” snacks include: 

Turkish Coffee & Roasted Hazelnuts —Caramelized with vanilla and sea salt and rolled in high-quality, authentic Turkish coffee, these hazelnuts are the perfect midday snack. Pairing the nutritional benefits of hazelnuts with the rich flavor of authentic Turkish coffee will invigorate the senses.

Cocoa Roasted Turkish Hazelnuts – With these delectable cocoa-coated snacks, you won’t even realize you’re munching on a snack that is full of protein, fiber, and is antioxidant-rich. 

Honey & Sesame Roasted Chickpeas –Chickpeas are full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. A handful of these tasty treats are both delicious and filling. Reach for a sweet & savory snack with honey & sesame roasted chickpeas. 

“We haven’t officially released our new line of healthy indulgent snacks, and we’re already seeing major interest from big box retailers,” said Tim Tucker Managing Director, Sales Milhans Foods USA. “These new flavors have hit a sweet spot in the balance between nutritional benefits and enticing flavors.”

Otto Nuts snacks are available in both conventional and USDA organic options. The brand’s direct connection with local growers ensures superior freshness. Otto Nutshazelnuts are hand-harvested from local, regenerative farms in the high-altitude mountains of the Black Sea and their 100% plant-based product options offer certified non-GMO, halal, kosher, and vegan options.
