Sometimes I feel a little Nutty: Nutty Guys Giveaway 9/16!

Since my husband and I began our path to getting in shape a month ago, I have been learning how to incorporate healthy, yet tasty snacks into our separate diets.  My husband is a heavy lifter, and he is eating lots of protein along with his diet, and I am trying to lose weight, so I too am adding healthy protein to my diet too.  I try to utilize low fat proteins as much as possible, but there are some "healthy fats" that are essential to our bodies that are actually good to snack on in moderation.  One of those snacks are nuts.  Combine them with fruit, and you have a double whammy with healthy carbs and protein.  Add a little chocolate for an indulgent treat!

The Company:

Today I want to share a new company I discovered with you:  Nutty Guys.  If you haven't heard about Nutty Guys before, the company was started in 1999 when two college buddies were selling potatoes and other fresh produce door to door and discovered that the majority of people wanted fresh nuts.  They quickly focused on this, and now carry over 300 nuts, seeds, butters, fruit, etc which they roast in house.  They pride themselves on fresh products, and refuse to keep a large quantity stocked.  They dip the nuts in chocolate on Monday to be sold on Friday!  The end result is satisfied customers who always get quality, fresh products!

My Thoughts:

I was thrilled to receive a Four Compartment Nut Try from Nutty Guys to facilitate my review.  My compartments contained Salted Pistachios in the shell, Cashews, Mixed Nuts, and Cinnamon Toffee Almonds.  My two personal favorites were the cashews and the pecans-yes, I picked the pecans out of the mixed nuts.  Hey, I was saving my son's life since he is deathly allergic to Pecans!  Okay, so I didn't let him eat any of the nuts since they obviously process pecans at Nutty Guys, but I had to have a good reason to eat all the pecans out of the mixed nuts.  My husband made quick work of the Cinnamon Toffee Almonds and the rest of the Cashews, and the 3 youngest kids loved all of the pistachios.  We really enjoyed the nuts, and my husband just yesterday requested to look at the website so he can pick out the nuts we buy next!

Also, with the Holiday Season coming up, I will definitely be using Nutty Guys nuts in my "candy dishes" for people to snack on at our parties and gatherings.  I think these would also make great stocking stuffer gifts, or even a nice gift for a co-worker, teacher, extended family member, or whoever you want to get a gift for!

  54. Nutty Guys avoids expensive, ornate packaging and uses simple, food-grade, cellophane bags with black and white labels to cut costs, which are passed onto customers. In their warehouse they often look for used machinery. Their industrial sized cooler came from the Utah Food Bank for free after they had acquired a new one. They also found an $8,000 chocolate-coating machine for free in closed down business after negotiating with the owner. Nutty Guys are able to pass these savings on to match or beat their competition.

  58. Nutty Guys also has complete dedication to their product and customers. A customer once ordered pistachios but only shelled pistachios were available. Dennis Graves remembers ordering them and while watching television, shelling the pistachios for hours in order to satisfy a customer. (Now that is customer service!)
