Softer Than Brittle Review and Reader Giveaway

I’ll be honest. I have never been a big fan of old-fashioned peanut brittle. When I was a kid, peanut brittle was a BIG tradition in our family, particularly around the holidays, but not something that I ever cared for. (Which I never would have wanted to admit to my Grandma – who usually made the brittle.) Do you know what I AM a big fan of? Softer Than Brittle!

Softer Than Brittle is a unique, soft and flaky gourmet nut brittle hand-crafted from a 60-year-old family recipe. It is a “better-for-you-brittle” in that it contains no preservatives, cholesterol, dairy, or hydrogenated oil. It’s even vegan!  Not only is Softer Than Brittle super delicious, soft and flakey, it also features a clean label with just 6 or 7 basic ingredients. Easy to understand – easy to know what you’re eating.

This gourmet, nut snack is made in small batches in a copper kettle. I’m not quite sure what that kettle being made of copper adds to the process, but I have a feeling it is something good because the end result is so delicious.

Softer Than Brittle is available in four varieties: Peanut, Almond, Cashew and Pecan. While I have tried and like them all, I really love the Almond flavor. It is SO yummy!

I have been enjoying Softer Than Brittle as an afternoon snack to tide me offer between lunch and dinner, but it could be used for so many other occasions including as an office treat, taking on road trips (the resealable pouches make it perfect for that), after school snacks and more. When will YOU eat Softer Than Brittle?

    This stuff is addicting…can’t find it locally…love all the flavors I’ve had…would love to try the pecan…if you’ve not had it…you need to!!

    I would love to try the Pecan first. I get a terrible case of the munchies every morning around 10:30 and I have been trying to pick healthier snacks for that time so I would eat these around then.

  4. Cindy Merrill says

    I have tried Pralines- I wonder how the pecan flavor variety would taste in comparison. As a Food Historian, I have special interest in this.

  5. Vicki says

    I’d love to try the Pecan ones. I like that they are softer than brittle because at my advancing age your teeth are really important to your general overall health.

  6. Kate Guinn says

    I would love to try the Cashew because they’re one of my favorite nuts! It would be a great snack to have while watching TV in the evenings.

  7. Wendy R. says

    Oooo sounds so good! I think I would go for cashew first… maybe almond. In any case, I don’t think I would need a reason or occasion… 🙂

  8. Erin F. says

    Ooh, they all sound so good. I’d probably start with the peanut, and I bet they’d go great with coffee, while binge-watching Netflix!

  9. Natalie J Vandenberghe says

    I love the cashew brittle! I’d probably want almond next (although pecan and peanut both sound delicious, too!)

  10. Melissa Storms says

    I would definitely love to try the cashew. I would eat it after school with my teen, I always use good, sweet treats as bait to get him to sit and have a chat at the table.

  11. Stephanie Sullivan says

    As a true Texan, pecan must be the first thing I try. Honestly, I would try them once I opened my package because I couldn’t control myself. LOL.

  12. clynsg says

    It really wouldn’t matter much, which I tried first, since I like all of those nuts, but for this purpose, I would pick the cashew.

  13. Rosanne says

    I would try the Pecan and would probably have it as an afternoon snack or at night when watching television

  18. Philip Lawrence says

    I would like to try the cashew flavored one and I would eat it while watching the Big Bang Theory on TV.

    I love pecans so I would love to try that one first. I think this would make a great snack after work.

  21. MeMe R says

    Well what took someone so long to make something like this. Eating the regular stuff is like eating glass and rocks together. Going to have to get this for my husband.
