These Chai-Spiced Pecans from Gearharts Fine Chocolates offer an indulgent way to enjoy a snack of pecan nuts.

The twist on a traditional snack begins with a base of large pecans sourced from Georgia that are halved and caramelized with exotic spices that create the classic chai flavor. Following this, the nuts are dipped into dark chocolate and are finished off with a coating of spiced cocoa powder. The finished nut snack is vegan and gluten-free.

Brands are attempting to satisfy a growing consumer desire for unconventional snack flavors in a healthy format with inventive tea-inspired nut snacks like these. In a bite-sized format like this, most consumers are open to experimenting when it comes to trying a bold new flavor.
