The brittle comes form the Southwestern state of New Mexico. After years of giving the brittle as a gift, Brenda's brittle went national. The recipe came from Brenda's mom, and from friends flavor suggestions.
To start the red chile pecan brittle was tasted. I found that my husband would do best for this one. He said the brittle was great, and he found that it did not even stick to his teeth. You get a little kick from the chile's, and the crunch of the peanuts, great combo of flavors here. A nice thing about these brittles is they are gluten free.
Next in the mouth was the cashew brittle. This one I took on, and I must say, cashew's are my all time most favorite nut. In case you did not know, the cashew nut came from Brazil, and it is a rich antioxidant, which elimiates some types of cancers. The nut being in high copper amounts gives you energy to. So its a great healthy snack and a quick pick me up one to. It was very great tasting. And my husband was right, you don't get that stuck to your teeth sensation when eating the brittle.
The nutty pop was next, and my daughter of nine tried this one. I mean what kid would not want to try a lollipop treat. This pop was their orginal flavor, and my daughter liked the idea that the brittle did not stick to her teeth. No kid likes that. So these make a great healthy snack for school lunchs. She really enjoyed it, and said it tasted really good. And this brittle is low in fat, so its very child friendly.
Next up was the pecan cherry brittle. This one I never heard of but was excited to try. The taste was sweet, probly from the cherries, but very good. It was on the chewy side, but yet did not stick to your teeth. It had a burst of flavor in your mouth for sure. You won't be disappointed with this as a snack.
The green chile brittle was are next taste test. Another unusal flavor I have never heard of. Its a combo of the orginal flavor and a combination mix of green chile spice. Very unique I must say. These treats have no butter or preservatives added to them, so you can't go wrong as a snack item. They all seem not to stick to your teeth either. Very tasty for the flavor of green chile mix combo.
Macadamia Brittle was next on the taste buds. Actually it was Macadamia Brittle. Yes macadamian nuts and coconut. This was a combo of sweet and salty at the same time. Great combo, if I must say so. You get the crunch of the macadamians and the suttle hint of coconut in every bite.
Now for the cranberry almond. I love cranberries in anything, cookies, cakes, and now brittle. After trying this you will to. You get a taste of tart and tangy with this brittle. And at the same time some sweet and salty flavors going on. A great Holiday brittle here to.
Last one was the Pion brittle. Another flavor I have never heard of. This one is unique in itself. But tasted great, and was a big hit with the family. You get a taste of sweet pine, like your outdoors in the wilderness. Its different, but good.
