A favorite snack: chewy pistachio bites.

While several of us tried to determine the name of the company, we all agreed: These Pistachio Chewy Bites are good stuff.
Simple and nutritious, they’re a blend of roasted pistachios and dried cranberries, bound in a honey-like mix of two low-glycemic* sweeteners, agave and brown rice syrup.
The bites are small—2″ x 1-1/2″—but nutrient dense and filling. One is enough, really, although the serving size is two.
We’ve been enjoying them as an on-the-go snack, for breakfast and at tea time. We have afternoon tea at THE NIBBLE, and these snacks can hold their own with biscotti, cookies and other sweets we sample each day.
If you need a quick dessert garnish, you can dice the bars as a topping for cupcakes, ice cream or sorbet.
The only confusion is the name of the company, only visible on the bag in the logo. There’s no URL, no company name in the marketing copy on the bag.
We don’t have room for a photo here, but look at it.
Is it Seffon Farms? Selton Farms? Setton Farms.
It’s the latter. We had to Google it.
The line is certified gluten free and certified kosher by OK.

*The glycemic index of table sugar is 60-65. The glycemic index of agave is 32, and brown rice syrup is 20. Honey is 58 and pure maple syrup is 54. Agave is 1.4 to 1.5 times sweeter than sugar and honey, so you don’t need to use as much.
