Vermont is our happy place. We love everything about the Green Mountain state – cows, maples, rugged footwear. And, of course, awesome snacking.
Made in Arlington by Leslie Kielson, Battenkill Brittle isn't the sticky, buttery sweet, nutty stuff you snacked at Grandma's (no offense Grandma). Battenkill is addictive and delicious! Full of seeds and superfoods, it's more than food – it's fuel. Sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds are sweetened lightly with brown rice syrup and Vermont maple syrup to create the perfect snack.
We could munch on this all day, dreaming of Mount Mansfield and Lake Champlain.
Battenkill's site is full of quotes from farmers and fellow outdoors-y types who swear by the brittle's ability to deliver a supercharged energy boost. Keep a stash around at all times and give your body a dose whenever you're feeling run down. Or just snack on it because it tastes good, that's OK too.
