Here are some of my favorite gourmet snacks for summer, from cheese to meat snacks and wafer crisps:
I am obsessed with Sartori Cheese, which I like to pair with wine or fruit. I've tried several of Sartori Reserve's distinct flavors, including SarVecchio Parmesan, Chai BellaVitano and Espresso BellaVitano, and look forward to trying Rosemary & Olive Oil Asiago and Limited Edition Extra-Aged Goat Cheese.
34 Degrees Sweet Crisps are available in four sweet flavors - Caramel, Chocolate, Cinnamon and Graham. These wafer-thin crisps can be paired with cheese, fruit spreads, Nutella, peanut butter, ice cream or frozen yogurt.
Krave Jerky has unique and savory flavors, with Basil Citrus turkey jerky at the top of my list. Other exotic flavors include Black Cherry BBQ, Chili Lime, Garlic Chili Pepper, Lemon Garlic, Pineapple Orange, Smoky Teriyaki and Sweet Chipotle.
Simply Snackin 100% all-natural meat snacks are great for on-the-go, combining lean sirloin or whole chicken breasts with dried fruits such as apples, cranberries, blueberries and pineapples or black beans and vegetables like jalapenos and shallots. Simply Snackin comes in six varieties: Dried Chicken Breast with Black Bean Salsa, Dried Beef Sirloin with Apples & Cherries, Dried Beef Sirloin with Cranberries and Blueberries, Teriyaki Dried Beef Sirloin with Pineapples, Dried Chicken Breast with Italian Style Seasoning and Romano Cheese and Teriyaki Dried Chicken Breast with Mangoes & Papayas.
