My Mixed Nuts Review and Giveaway

I love snacking on a bowl full of peanuts, cashews, or any other kind of mixed nuts.  They make a quick, healthy and let's face it delicious snack.  They are so many varieties out there nowadays that you could try a different kind and never get bored.  I also love eating different kinds of seeds like pumpkin and sunflower.  My husband quit smoking quite a few years ago, almost four to be exact, and he still to this day has a lot of cravings for a cigarette, especially when he is stressed out from work or stressed from the girls.  He has been chewing on a lot of sunflowers seeds in the shell to try and curb those cravings.  I had the opportunity recently to review a couple of great products from My Mixed NutsMy Mixed Nuts is not only nuts but they have trail mix too, which is absolutely delicious.  They have some truly wonderful snacking options in the varieties of mixes that they offer.  Here are the two that I received:

*Nuts For Organic-This all organic mix is chock full of only the finest nuts that My Mixed Nuts can find.  There is a healthy blend of pecans, peanuts, roasted hazelnuts, cashews, almonds, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and walnuts.  This mix was so fresh and flavorful.  I love that there was a date on the bag saying when it was packaged and made to order on the day it was shipped for absolute guaranteed freshness.  We all tried it the day it came and of course this was hubby's dream mix as he absolutely loves cashews and obviously sunflower seeds.  I had never had the opportunity to try organic nuts before, so this was a real treat.  A little different because there is not all of the salt that I am used to eating with other mixed nuts, all you get is the true flavor of each one.  I love the package that these come in, there is a clear window in front of the bag for you to see all of the great colors and combinations of nuts that you are getting.  These were definitely very delicious and would go extremely well at a party or get together.
*Sugar and Spice- We absolutely loved this mix, it had a little bit of everything in it to satisfying your sweet and salty cravings all at the same time.  This mix had Macadamia Nuts (which are my fave!), jelly beans, ginger, sunny bears, chocolate covered raisins, cashews, golden raisins and pecans.  My oldest really loved the gummi bears and the jelly beans of course but wasn't crazy about the ginger.  The ginger provides a different taste and when eaten with a couple of nuts really creates a unique taste sensation.  My hubby loved this mix, mainly because of the cashews and chocolate covered raisins which are favorites of his.  This mix was really fresh and still is, what little there is left of it.  Very delicious!

 My Mixed Nuts was started by a well known poker player named Annie Duke, her boyfriend, actor Joe Reitman and producer Ryan Simpkins.  See, Annie was on the Celebrity Apprentice where Ryan was one of the producers.  They got to talking even long after the show was done taping and talked about ideas for a custom trail mix company where the customers could come and design their own mixed nuts or trail mix and have them shipped right to their door.  Annie thought this was the most brilliant idea that she's ever heard.  Before they started this company, Annie was always mixing her own trail mixes to take along with her to poker tournaments and on the poker tour.  Annie is pretty picky and there are just some things that she doesn't like in the pre packaged mixed nuts and trail mix blends so this is why she was so excited about this idea.  For those of you who don't know Annie personally, once she puts her mind to something it is quite contagious.  I watched her on the Celebrity Apprentice and I have watched her play poker.  She is not only EXTREMELY smart but very outspoken and determined, one of my favorite poker players to watch and definitely hubby's favorite.  With the three parties involved, they all wondered with their busy lifestyles who was going to take care of the business and run the day to day operations?  Enter Ryan's mom,Susan, who they say is supremely qualified to handle "nutcases" as well as handling each and every order with care and love.  Susan is the one who packaged both of my mixes for review and now knowing the story behind My Mixed Nuts, what an honor it was to do this review ad share with you this great company.

My Mixed Nuts...and Trail Mix too has several great mixes for you to choose from such as the After Dinner Mix, Annie Banana's Trail Mix and Gummy Delicious.  You can also customize your own mix and add exactly what you want and you can name your mix as well.  With a fresh selection of seeds, nuts and candies, you can customize your mix to your liking or make a special one for a gift.  My Mixed Nuts only uses the finest, freshest quality ingredients for your mixes.  You will truly be amazed at the quality of the product and the flavors.  For more information about My Mixed Nuts and to see all of the wonderful products that they have to offer, please head over HERE.  Also make sure to check out the varieties of gift baskets, gift certificates, as well as the Mix of the Month Club.
