Calling All Garlic Lovers!

Did you know that April 19th was National Garlic Day?  (I know, I’m a tad late on that one!).  However, with the new Twilight movie coming out, I thought this would be the perfect time to introduce you to a great set of garlic snacks!  We are a garlic family, so these all were a great hit in our house.

New York Style snacks are famous for their authenticity, twice-baked crunch and great taste.  Their delicious varieties of garlic flavored snacks include:

  • NEW: Parmesan and Roasted Garlic Risotto Chips are the first snack to be made with Arborio rice, the star ingredient of risotto, and are gluten-free and all-natural.  (My kids actually fought each other over these.  They loved them!)
  • Roasted Garlic Bagel Crisps® are the original New York Style snack — most famous for their hearty crunch!  (My husband liked these but he did dip them.)
  • Roasted Garlic and Herb Focaccia Sticksoffer up popular Italian focaccia bread in finger-friendly twice-baked sticks.  (We brought these to a party and they were gone instantly.  A big hit!)
  • Sesame Garlic Crispini® are New York Style’s take on the traditional Mediterranean flatbread found in many of NYC’s fine restaurants.
  • Garlic Pita Chips are made from authentic Mediterranean pocket bread and are the perfect any-time snack.
  • Garlic Panetini® and Garlic Parmesan Panetini® are oven baked Italian toast slices that make an easy base for your favorite bruschetta recipes and spreads.  (All I have to say is bruschetta . . . yum)

New York Style snacks are all-natural and baked, making them perfect for special entertaining occasions or as ‘healthier-for-you’ snacks right out of the bag.  My husband loves the garlic flavor, because you can actually taste it!  Since these were such a hit in our house, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to get a bag of:

·         Garlic Bagel Crisps

·         Parmesan & Roasted Garlic Risotto Chips

·         Roasted Garlic & Herb Focaccia Sticks

·         Garlic Pita Chips
