You have questions. We have answers!
Why are your snacks more nutritious than typical snacks?
Every Extraordinary Snack begins with a foundation of activated nuts. Activation (sprouting) releases the full nutritional profile of nuts (aka, seeds) and makes them easier to digest. Once we’ve boosted the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids of our nuts, we gently dehydrate them so they remain as enzymatically potent as possible. We combine these activated nuts with fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices for truly flavorful, nutrient dense, protein-packed snacks. For more juicy tidbits on nut activation, check out https://draxe.com/sprout/. One of our favorite sites!
Do all Extraordinary Snack products contain nuts?
Currently, all of our snack foods contain tree nuts and/or seeds, but no peanuts. If you’re allergic to tree nuts (including walnuts, pecans, cashews, Brazil nuts, almonds, and coconuts), we recommend avoiding our products.
Are your products gluten-free?
Absolutely! We never use any types of grains, fillers or gluten in our products.
Are your snacks sugar-free?
While we don’t use refined sugar in our products, we do rely on small amounts of agave, maple sugar, coconut nectar, and dates for sweetness, as well as the natural sugars present in the fruits and vegetables we use. Thus, our products have a lower glycemic index, but they are not sugar-free.
Are any of your products “raw”?
This one’s tricky. When making our snacks, we use raw, unprocessed ingredients including raw nuts. To assure safety, we dehydrate our batches at temperatures above 118°F which means we cannot label our products as raw.
You mention your products are “clean” food. What does that mean?
While there are several definitions, “clean foods” generally means healthy, whole foods that are minimally processed, nutrient-dense (no empty calories), and free of refined sugars, additives, and artificial ingredients.
How should your snacks be stored?
Our resealable packaging includes a clear lining with a PET barrier to protect your stash from unwanted moisture, which makes it perfect for snacks on the go. For longer storage, we recommend popping these babies into a glass jar or other airtight container and keeping them in the refrigerator or freezer.
How long do your snacks last?
If you’re like most people, you’ll devour our goodies long before their “best by” date. But just in case:
|Storage||Use within . . .|
|Pantry (unopened)||1-3 months|
Where can I find your products?
Currently, our products are available by pre-order and pick-up at Cobblestone Market, located at 1001 S. Marshall Street SW, Winston-Salem, NC. The Market is open Wednesday, 4 pm – 6 pm and Saturday, 8:30 am – 12 pm. Sign-up for email or join us on Facebook and Instagram for updates on where you can purchase our products locally.
Do you ship products nationally?
To better serve the snack needs of our local community, we no longer ship products from our website. However, we can make an exception if you want to ship our snacks to someone special (including yourself!). To learn more about available products and shipping costs, email your request to email@example.com.
Are your products available for wholesale purchase?
Due to high demand, we do not offer products wholesale at this time.
Are your products and quality guaranteed?
Your satisfaction remains our highest priority. If something isn’t right with your order, we want to hear about it!
