"I made this for my friends bridal shower in april and I still am getting requests for the recipe in november. I used almonds instead of macadamia nuts to be a little more cost effective. The sweet and salty mix is perfect!"

"I have made this recipe several times. I use pecans instead of macadamias because I don't care for macadamias. I have made different variations, leaving out certain parts to suit everyone's taste. This is absolutely the best party mix I ever ate! I will make it many, many more times I am sure!"

"This party mix is excellent for Spring get togethers. Very easy to make and refreshing to eat. The macadamia nuts make it a little more expensive, but I just used one cup instead of two cups of macadamia nuts. Enjoy!"
