MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 25, 2009

"I agree with myrtrose, I would want more than 1/3 cup of this. I would leave out the salt and the sugar, as the cashews are salted, and the dried fruit is very sweet. Also I don't see the reason to use an egg white, so I would omit the egg white. forgoti8it

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 24, 2009

"Sorry but dried fruits are a huge No for a diabetic...plus look at the serving size. I know I'd want alot more than 1/3 cup, which would make this a very unhealthy snack! Diabetics have to watch fat and sodium too."
