We discovered Snowbits Confections in our Facebook feed. It looked like nougat and we like nougat, so we sent for an assortment. It did not disappoint!
It turns out that Snowbits is not exactly nougat. It’s made with egg whites, nuts, and dried fruits like nougat.
Then, Snowbits travels beyond the borders of nougat by adding marshmallows to make it softer, and in some flavors, cookie pieces.
Snowbits has a second product, Jujube Dates.
Both are great for a snack, coffee break, with a cup of hot chocolate or iced drinks, or as a dessert garnish (use them to crown a scoop of ice cream or a sundae).
Serve them on a dessert plate or board (photos #1, #2, and #3) with after-dinner coffee or tea.
Chewy but not sticky, Snowbits melt in your mouth—there’s no tugging at your fillings.
They are gluten-free (they do contain milk powder).
And, a bonus: They are inexpensive—so reasonable you can’t not try them.
The business is a start-up founded by a mompreneur who created a soft candy with chewy mix-ins after much trial and error. The effort was worth it. As our Dad would say, these hit the spot!
The biggest problem is choosing among the flavors, so we went for the 30-piece All Flavor Mix (there are smaller and larger sizes—the smaller sizes are great stocking stuffers or party favors).
The candy is cut into one-inch squares and individually wrapped. You can have a few pieces without over-indulging.
Flavors include Chocolate, Coffee, Matcha, Mint, Oreo, Strawberry, Tropic Orange, and Original (which has almonds, cashews, dried cranberries, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts).
Each piece is 45 or 50 calories. One is perfectly satisfying with hot or iced coffee, tea, or by itself.
SNOWBITS JUJUBE DATES
For those who remember Jujubes gummy candy: It is no relation whatsoever.
These treats are made with jujube fruit, also known as the red or Chinese date. The fruit is native to Southern Asia but has become popular around the world. Like Middle Eastern and Western dates, they are eaten fresh off the tree as well as dried.
Small, round, sweet, and chewy, jujube dates are rich in fiber, plant protein, vitamin C, and antioxidants. Here’s more about them.
Snowbits takes a jujube date, stuffs it with an almond, and wraps it in pillowy marshmallow. Delectable!
Flavors are Original and Matcha, and both are 30 calories apiece.
