These seasoned mixed nuts make great hostess gifts; or just tuck some in with a Christmas present. I often add another teaspoon of cardamom, a flavor we enjoy!—Judi Oudekerk, Buffalo, Minnesota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2012

"Wow! These nuts are amazing. My husband requests them all the time. I'm even going to experiment with the spices in the future. Perhaps cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and cocoa powder. They make a great gift too. Sure beats paying for the overpriced specialty nuts in the store."

"Thought these very very good. Could I toast some almonds and add them in place of pecans? Hubby loves almonds while pecans do not rate high on his list?"
