Enjoy Life's Not Nuts Review

       I do love my Enjoy Life products.  I buy their chocolate chips, their new handcrafted cookies, and love their double chocolate granola cereal!    Because only one of my kids is sensitive to nuts, we do eat nuts in our house.   So, I glossed over their not nuts! Seed and Fruit Mix.  Silly me!  

     I tried their Mountain Mambo.  It was totally great!  I loved the traditional chocolate chips, raisins, cranberries, and sunflower seeds but loved the addition of apples, and pumpkin seeds. 
 Awesome trail mix!

     The second choice of no nuts! was the Beach Bash seed mix.  This is a tropical mix of pineapple (sulfite free),  cranberries, pumpkin seeds, apricots, and sunflower seeds.   Again this was a tasty mix and you really don't miss the nuts here.  The one thing I did miss (remember I am a choco-holic) was chocolate chips.  I fixed that by adding in my own Enjoy Life Chocolate chips.  
 
    Then I made up a little treat for myself with a few ingredients I had around the house.  I call it  'Date on the Beach.'   I used pitted medjool dates, filled with a sweetened dairy free cream cheese, dipped in melted Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips and pressed into the not nuts! Beach Bash Seed and Fruit Mix.  It was a perfect bite sized treat.  I ate them all by myself and was completely happy!  
   
     These no nuts! mixes are wonderful and can be used for more than just as a quick snack.  I think these would also make a great spin off version of Pasteli, a Greek Sesame honey candy, where you mix 1 cup of honey with 3 cups of sesame seeds (but instead trying one of these seed mixes).  If you use the one with chocolate it will melt when you mix it in with the warm honey, but who cares, it's chocolate!   

   Now I am in the know.  
Who needs nuts in trail mix when these mixes taste so good without them!
