Salty, sweet and crunchy?? Oh yes! Yes, they are!
I was recently given an opportunity from Enjoy Life Foods ® to review the new packaging for their not nuts! Seed and Fruit Mixes.
Here at the Mo’s Momstuff house, we’d given up on having little treats like trail mixes. Being a completely nut-free home, we just resigned ourselves to missing those lovely little indulgences. Well…
Not any more!
I have to admit, we had never tried this particular product lineup from Enjoy Life ®. We’re huge supporters of theirs and love everything that we’ve tried, but honestly, their wonderful products aren’t available in our regular grocery store and we just don’t get over to Sunflower Market to get the specialty items anymore. Since they’re ‘extras’ it’s just not part of our shopping routine. But I had definitely seen them before.
Let me just tell you-
They’re delicious! I love both pumpkin and sunflower seeds so it was wonderful that they both had them. In abundance. Yum! But I’m not a big cranberry or raisin fan though. Luckily, neither of these mixes have too many of either of those things. They have enough to vary the flavors and textures, but not so many that you feel like that’s all you’re getting in each bite, which is nice. I know there are plenty of mixes out there that overload you (well…me) with raisins as ‘filler’. Enjoy Life ® hasn’t done that. Thank you Enjoy Life ®!
I loved the chocolate chips in the Mountain Mambo mix. I actually wish that the Beach Bash mix had had chocolate chips as well but at the same time I’m glad that they offer one without. Not everyone wants chocolate chips.
They have new packaging now.
And I like it. I like the look. I like the feel of the bags. They’re a softer, not-so-plasticky feeling bag. It’s different. It’s nice. Resealable is also always a big plus in my book. The only issue I had with this packaging is that they’re not super easy to tear open. The plastic doesn’t rip all that easily but it’s nothing that a pair of scissors didn’t take care of!
All in all, I love the packages. They’ve got a great feel and I LOVE how big the “NUT FREE” declaration is! I also really enjoy being able to see the actual mix. The little ‘windows’ help immensely. I know I’m much more likely to buy a product that I can actually see. Aren’t you?!
