Ziba Kismish Raisins are made from the prized Shungul Khani grape variety, grown sustainably in Afghanistan’s Kandahar Province. Longer and thinner than traditional raisins, these golden-green hued bites have a sweet, delicate flavor and chewy, snackable texture. Their almost floral sweetness is the perfect foil for creamy, salty blue cheeses like Chiriboga Blue or Rogue Creamery Caveman Blue.

“My favorite candy is any gummy candy, but I always feel guilty snacking. These super-sweet chewy raisins are a healthy alternative to my gummy candy snack addiction. Pop them by the mouthfuls alone like I do or try them with a saltier option such as Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives.”
