Hmmmm... A dollar per ounce for some smashed together fruit and nuts...

But I have to admit; these things are kinda preety. The fig and nut press looks delectable, but it's not being offered by woot. It would be cool to combine with cheese or chocolates and some porto for dessert.

Ingredient list for Fig + Nut press is here: http://www.petitamuse.com/mixed-fruit-nut-press.html

Unfortunately, that's the one press that is not in this offer. I'm still searching.

I thought a fruit & nut press was a contraption of some sort, but obviously you're not showing us how to fish, you're selling us a 12 ounce fish, or 2 of them. Wake me up when you've actually got a $25 fruit press for sale.

Technically, the glass is always full.

Exactly. With a Trader Joe's nearby, I can buy dried fruit and nuts in my preferred proportions/combinations at a fraction of the price. (I'm fine with the "smashing together" occurring after ingestion.)

So maybe I am not classy enough. How are these consumed? Fork & knife into bites like cake, or just pry chunks off with my fingers like nachos?

I assumed just picking the block up and gnawing was right out.

I'm baffled.

These look pretty good. Sadly, no shipping to Canada so I'll have a peek when I'm in San Fancisco next week.

As for being able to buy loose dried fruit on the cheap, that's similar to being able to get a decorated cake from Walmart for cheap...it's not exactly the same and you get what you pay for. But this isn't for everyone, we can agree.

these look like an "artisan" and "chunky" version of the LARA BAR, which is healthy and delicious! The LARA BAR is mass produced and it's also about $1/oz, so this does look like a decent deal. Has anyone tried this?

Unfortunately, the sulphur dioxide is not for me but it does look very pretty. I think it would be good for a wine-tasting kind of thing or as a host/hostess gift for people who entertain a lot.

"artisan" means "mass produced". It has no legal meaning or certification (like organic or fair trade), hence "Domino's Artisan Pizzas" or "Tostito's Artisan Chips", which is the same crap they've always sold with a fancy name and price.

I tried the Hawaiian press and it was delicious. Not too sweet or sugary like most dried fruit. You can taste the quality difference with the fruit on this. I did dabble a bit with trying to pair it with wine (Sauv Blanc and Syrah) but neither were an awesome combo, but on its own was a great dessert. I saved a bit and brought it to work with me for a nibble at lunch.

I had expected it to be a bit hard to chew given the density, but it was much softer than expected.

Now I wish I had paired it with some cheese, but I should get another chance at it. Pretty sure I am going in for at least 1.

I would disagree that artisan = mass produced. I do agree that because it isn't regulated in any way (it would be silly to regulate anyway) that companies can twist it for their gain. The same happens with organic products that are regulated.

However, that doesn't mean that there aren't true artisans making artisanal products.

No one has ever thrown out the fruit cake I've made. Of course I use Alton Brown's recipe so it's not a candied, colored and sugared nightmare. No it's the stuff you bring on the wagon trail west with you.

If the Donner party had this (or my fruit cake) we wouldn't even know who the Donner party was.

I agree... Agave Nectar is like the anti-christ of sugars- far FAR worse than HFCS especially for anyone with insulin resistance issues. (Coincidentally those are the people who seek out "No Sugar Added" foods!)

Well stated! Thank you for acknowledging the difference between a truly Artisanal creation and a mass-production marketing strategy. Often times one can clearly distinguish the difference. I love this definition of "Artisan" because it truly encompasses Grace&i and our wish for bringing beauty and uniqueness to one's table. Each and every single one of these is made by hand and no two look the same; as perhaps a mass produced Larabar, which someone compared to previously.
Artisan: a skilled manual worker who makes items that may be functional or strictly decorative. An artisan is therefore a person engaged in or occupied by the practice of a craft, who may through experience and talent reach the expressive levels of an artist using his/her hands, mind and heart in his work and what he creates.

There are many different types of agave nectar and the process by which each is extracted and from where determines the glycemic index. The type of agave nectar used in these products are qualified.
Human clinical trials on Volcanic Nectar Blue Agave showed that the product is Low Glycemic in diabetics. Further, the product did not trigger Adipose tissue fat-storage in humans. This research shows that Blue Agave Nectar (at 1, 2 and 3 servings) does not trigger fat-storage in fat cells, and does not elevate blood glucose or insulin levels, which leads to obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes.
Researchers noted that not all Agave products have been clinically proven to be low glycemic, as the manufacturing process and ratios of ingredients varies, and is not standardized.
Glycemic Value of Volcanic Nectar's Blue Agave Nectar compared to other sugars and other agave nectar:

Volcanic Agave Nectar 27
Safe for Diabetics <55

One of the most health-promoting properties of agave nectar is its favorable glycemic profile. Its sweetness comes primarily from a complex form of fructose called inulin. Fructose is the sugar that occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables. The carbohydrate in agave nectar has a low glycemic index, which provides sweetness without the unpleasant "sugar rush" and unhealthful blood sugar spike caused by many other sugars. Agave nectar is a delicious natural sweetener.
