NEW YORK, N.Y. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- With the excitement around the Winter Olympics in Vancouver at an all time high, what fuels the constant energy of the athletes? Unique Amenities (, creators of the athletes' snacks of the Winter Games, created The Nutritious Snack Combo to do just that.

The development team at Unique Amenities, a green hotel and hospitality firm based in Upstate New York, was approached by the Olympic production team to create a series of snacks for the athletes that were nutritious, nut-free and presented in compostable packaging.

The snacks, which were presented to every athlete at the opening ceremony in the Olympic Village, include Snack-ens, a pretzel mix with bagel chips, craisins, salsa rice triangles and green apple chips to provide an even and constant supply of energy.

In keeping with the Winter Olympics green mission and commitment to carbon neutral events, the snack packaging was custom created of PLA (polylactic acid) a compostable plastic film derived from corn starch. So - not only are the snacks healthy, delicious and not too filling - the packaging won't spend centuries clogging landfills.
