Eating healthy can raise questions such as, "Are crayons a fruit or a vegetable?" and "How many steaks does a growing baby need?" Answer culinary inquiries with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh nuts at Mound City Shelled Nut Company.
In business since 1917, Mound City Shelled Nut Company roasts each nut, cashew, almond, and pistachio on-site to satisfy snackers, toasting salted and unsalted varieties with a technique that enhances kernels' flavor and ability to attract a mate. A box of deluxe mixed nuts showcases a medley of colossal cashews, pecan halves, and blanched filberts ($18.89+), and the 1-pound Plaza mix incorporates fruity fragments such as pineapples, raisins, and cranberries ($11.99). Microwave peanuts empower patrons to dry-roast their own morsels at home, resulting in bite-size bits free of salt, sugar, and preservatives ($4.99–$9.99). Ground directly from their stock of roasted peanuts, Mound City's peanut butter ($4.99+) slathers surfaces with an all-natural spread containing nothing but peanuts; and the chocolate-infused peanut butter combines the two decadent substances for you ($5.99+). Customers may also use this Groupon toward the less nutty chocolate-covered strawberries ($19.99/lb.).
