This month, we’re highlighting two of our customer-favorite products: Nutty No Grainer Mediterranean and Go Nuts Granola. We may be biased, but we get more excited thinking about these than the thought of finding gold at the end of the rainbow. They’re tasty, packed with nutrition and sure to put a jig in your step! Read on for more about them, as well as their nutritional benefits.
Go Nuts was the first product we developed nearly 13 years ago, and, to this date, it remains our best-selling product. Loaded with pistachios, almonds, pecans and dried cranberries, it’s a classic for a reason.
Big News: We’re switching the sugar used in Go Nuts by omitting the use of brown sugar and substituting it with turbinado sugar, an unprocessed cane sugar with the natural inclusion of molasses. By using a sweetener that’s less processed, we’re taking another step to make our products as natural as possible.
Nutty No Grainer Mediterranean is a more recent addition to our product lineup, but has fast become a favorite. This savory snack mix is our second item with no added sugar, and it’s delicious as a snack or as an enhancement to any dish you can dream up. Loaded with nuts and baked with olive oil and an exotic spice blend, this mix with satisfy your need for a savory, crunchy and healthy snack.
