One of the new vendors at this year's Natural Foods Expo West in California showed off a unique new flavor for its glazed walnuts.

While walnuts and other nut varieties are often caramelized with sweet coatings of honey, sugar and maple, Martella's Grower Direct showed off a savory-spicy flavor inspired by buffalo wings.

The saucy chicken wing-inspired nut snacks offer a unique way to take inspiration from a popular meat product and turn the essence of its flavor into a healthy snack for on-the-go eating. Simulated buffalo wing flavors can be found in everything from chips to pretzels from many snack manufacturers, but it is rarely used to enhance foods that are sourced from nature.
