I am, a NUT person (not the bad way kind of nut), I meant any kind of nuts such as peanut, cashew, pecan, almond, etc. I love them as a snack! I always buy snack mixes from the store but never tried the snack mixes from Gourmet Nut before. I am so glad that they gave me an opportunity to try different kinds of snack mixes and salt. Gourmet Nut sent me a box full of goodies last week. Thank you so much!
Here's what's inside. Four packs of snack mixes and 6 kinds of sea salt. In the neck of the woods where I grow up in, we only used sea salt in cooking. Only those people who call themselves "rich" uses Iodized salt. I am thrilled to see different kinds of sea salt from different regions.
Below is the Himalayan Pink gourmet salt, hand mined salt found naturally deep inside the pristine Himalayan Mountain. According to the package label, it has a high mineral content. This would be an all round sea salt for cooking, roasting, grilling, seasoning, and beautiful addition for presentation. I can imagine using this in a freshly caught fish and grill it, hmmnn, smells so good!
This Sel Gris French sea salt also has a high level of minerals and nutrients. This kind of salt is ideal for baking breads, making soups and sauces as it dissolves very easily. My daughter tried this already when she made the spaghetti sauce yesterday.
Below is the Hiwa Kai Hawaiian sea salt. IT has a stunning black color and silky texture. The solar evaporated Pacific sea salt is combined with activated charcoal .
The Alaea sea salt is another Hawaiian premium salt collection, it's a non-processed and rich in trace mineral that can be found in sea water. A great one to use with your red meat and a fabulous grain for garnishing.
The Sonoma Gourmet Sea Salt is solar evaporated from the clean waters of Pacific Ocean. It's pure, natural, and unadulterated sea salt that does not contain additives.
The Smoked Sea Salt is a unique new breed of natural smoked salt with authentic smoked flavor. Great salt to use for BBQing.
Remember I am a nut person, well, I am not alone. My daughter love snacking on nuts as well. Her favorite among the four selection of snack mixes that we received is the Feel Good mix. It has peanuts, almonds, apricots, granola, raisins, and cranberries.
My favorite is the Nature's Mix because it contains my favorite tropical fruits such as papaya and pineapple. It also has raisins, cranberries, peanuts, almonds, and cashews. If it wasn't for peanut, I think that this one would be great for my son as he likes papaya. Too bad, he has a peanut allergy.
This Soy Nut is something that only me can enjoy as Ms. Burrito is allergic to soy. Hubby is not very fond of snacking on other kinds of nu-ts other than cashes and pistachios. This has soy nu-ts, cranberries, raisins, pumpkin seeds, and almonds.
The last snack mix is the Energize Me. I have eaten the whole thing already. It has almonds, cashews, raisins, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, and cherries. This really make my breakfast a lot easier.
So the next time, you are looking for some Gourmet On the Go snacks, try Gourmet Nut selection.
