Cashews Are Coming to Lush Gourmet

We've come a long way since 2011. It all began with peanuts and then we upgraded almonds into the product line. Now, we're ready to launch something all new for you to enjoy! It's finally time for cashews to enter the Lush Gourmet family. I've always loved cashews and its something I've been thinking about for awhile. I think it was time to introduce them and bring something new to the lineup.
Our cashews are sourced with care through countries like India, Indonesia, and Brazil. You can expect to find beautiful whole, white, premium cashews. We chose to use 320 cashews instead of 240 cashews with purpose. I love 320 cashews even though they are smaller, they taste sweeter and are overall more flavorful. Because of the coating we puts on the nuts, the size of the cashew was thoughtfully chosen to snack easier, too.
They still have this nice exterior crunch but cashews are naturally creamy, so they have more of a creamy texture when you eat them.
What's even better, is that cashews are packed with healthy benefits! They are a source of dietary iron, which is important for carrying oxygen around the body and aids in the functioning of enzymes and the immune system. They also have vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin E, and vitamin K.
You can expect three different flavors coming to Lush Gourmet; Chocolate Sea Salt, Chai Spice, and Coconut Ginger. I wanted some really classic flavors. The dark cocoa chili is popular but I wanted something more broad that everyone would enjoy. Im a huge fan of salt, so I thought it was fun to amp that up. All three flavor combinations will become available in August in both large and mini pouches.
Cashews are my favorite nut. The creaminess the nuttiness, and they are really versatile!
