When I received my sample gift package from Gourmet Nut, I did not feel guilty at all. I absolutely love snacking on nuts and am currently watching my sodium intake.

All of this great flavor just made me not want to share. I really love nuts and was hoping my kids would find something they did not like in the nut combinations and not want to eat any because I wanted them all to myself. Wishful thinking…the gift basket had something we all liked.

I truly wanted to share my basket with holiday guest. My parents came to visit and they were able to try the Energize Me Protein Mix. I am ashamed to tell this story, but my daughter and I tried the Soy Nut Health Mix and lost our minds. It was soooooo good. My son did not stand a chance on getting to taste this one. Oh my goodness, my daughter opened the package and told me how good it was and I should try it. I tried it and my mind instantly thought of how I could hide the package and not share. All motherly instincts of sharing went out of the window. I ate the package and am so ashamed. Just yesterday my daughter said something about soy nuts, I just changed the subject. Gourmet Nut has exposed to me soy nuts and I am forever grateful. Now, how do I tell my daughter I ate the entire mix.
I can go on on and about the variety of nuts. I did receive a variety of sea salt. I have used them on my kale chips and my baked sweet potato fries. I plan on using them on other recipes. I did sprinkle a little on my nuts, but opted to just eat them without, but I will say the sea salt was delicious. I opened each one and sampled them in a small spoon. There is something about sea salt I just love.
In the kitchen or next to the grill, Gourmet Nut Sea Salts make a great addition to any food lover’s home. Whether cooking with the stark white Sonoma Gourmet Sea Salt, the pitch black Hiwa Kai Hawaiian Sea Salt or any color in between, there is a Gourmet Nut Sea Saltto complement to every meal. These salts pair well with special occasion dishes, but they’re priced for everyday use next to the stove or on the dining room table.
I also received olive oil, napkins and West Elm dipping bowls. Yes, I was entertaining in style. Well that is with the stuff I was willing to share. I honestly know how to share, but those soy nuts made me loose my mind.
You have to head over to Gourmet Nut and see all of the wonderful items they have. I am still sampling my salts and wish I had more nuts. I truly mean that. They were delicious!!!
