Giveaway! Delicious Candied Nuts & Organic Dried Fruits

Thank you to Nutorious Nut Confections and Peeled Snacks for sending me these amazing and good for you delicious treats to sample and offer to my readers. I was psyched to receive both packages and waited for the right time to taste them both. Both companies package their product in a bag that you can pop right into your purse, diaper bag, gift bag, gold bag, backpack, suitcase or even in your care package to your daughter off at college, you name it, it will fit! These snacks are highly portable without the mess and provide delicious mouth entertainment to both kids and adults alike.

I brought a bag of Nutorious Nuts on my mini vacation this week. I of course opened them right up in front of my mother and had her take a smell of the Cherry Vanilla Va-Voom nut mix. And then I had her quickly pop one, two, three into her mouth. Her response -"These could be habit forming!" I agree as the Nutorious nut snacks provide the crunch satisfaction of a chip with just the right amount of sweet and salty, not to mention the delicious dried cherries that give a tart and tangy chew to the mix. Their snacks are highly addictive and made me want to hide them from my children. Yes, I can be a mean mother. They are a really great, low sugar alternative to a cookie, or even a granola bar which can be unnecessarily loaded with added sugars and fillers.

Organic dried fruit snacks from Peeled Snacks. Open up and say YUM! I am sure there are many moms out there who are quite conscious about what their kiddos put past their lips and into their bellies. All organic, no added sugar, and no sulfites... that is what I like! Peeled snacks packages their products in perfect lunch sized packaging. Their pineapple was out of this world and the apricots were tangy and sweet. They also have larger quantities for the family outing, hike, long drive to grandmothers, or if everyone is lucky...a canoe trip. The dried fruit is the perfect answer to the whiny child who needs a pick me up after a nap or a "hold over" until supper is actually on the table.
