WIN THIS: Two bags of Yumnuts!


A few weeks ago, I was sent the above to review. Y'all know I am a HUGE fan of roasted nuts. I scoop up Blue Diamond almonds whenever they go on sale, and I make my own whenever I have the time. But sometimes I want something a little less processed, and I don't have always have the time to make my own. So I couldn't be happier to let you know that I've found the solution to my problem. Yumnuts Naturals flavor roasted cashews and almonds are fantastic and super flavorful—without all the gunk.

Yumnuts Naturals grew out of one man's need for a roasted cashew "without all the oil and artificial ingredients added by the BNC." Translation: Big nut companies. With a few experiments and some almonds, too—the company grew. So what is a Yumnut? According to the website:

Are you a Yumnut? Thought so. I sure am.

Back to the nuts. Baked in an oven, they're flavor roasted in small batches without added oils. This preserves the healthy fats within the nuts themselves and, of course—the flavors, too. You get all the goodness of the given flavor without the cholesterol, trans fats and with minimal amounts of sodium. Sodium isn't bad when consumed in small amounts, right? Right. Enough about sodium, though. Let's talk about cinnamon.

Light and crunchy, these cinnamon almonds will satisfy any taste bud that craves a kick of goodness. I swear. I chopped them up and put them on top a bowl of Greek yogurt and fresh fruit:


But if cinnamon isn't your thing, you could pick up a bag of dark chocolate or ginger orange almonds. Both of which I'm sure are quite delish, too. I would have to say, though, that the cashews rocked my mouth a bit more.


Not because they were better, but because they were truly different. To me, they almost tasted like Oreo cookies. Like chocolate and butter and sweetness. Without, of course, all the gunk. I think those of us that like nuts focus so much on almonds that we lose sight of all the other good, healthy nuts out there. It's nice to have something else for a change, and something that's flavor roasted, too.

If chocolate isn't your think, they've got you covered. Think touch of honey, toasted coconut, sea salt and easy Cajun. Yeah, I know. You want them all. And if you do get them all, be sure to save your bags.

Yumnuts' new RE4 program "is a great way to recycle Yumnuts bags and in return get great Yumnuts swag. The more bags you return, the better the gear." How cool is that?

'bout as cool as getting two free bags to start your return collection, I'd say. I am happy to announce that Yumnuts is willing to give one lucky Daily Dose reader a bag of each of the nuts featured in this post—one Cinnamon Almond, one Chocolate Cashew. Score! Here's how you enter.
