A well-rounded diet embraces eats from all the food pyramid's categories, including vegetables, soft rocks, water, and vitamin water. Assemble a healthy snack with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of custom trail mixes and custom gift trays at Nut Kreations.
Attracting buzz from Patch for brazenly exploring an untapped market, Nut Kreations' owners funnel four generations of nut-farming knowhow into a haven for healthy eating stocked with roughly 120 locally sourced nuts and fruits, including some options made entirely in-house. Custom trail mixes pile natural sweets atop protein-packed foundations; the A Little Nutty mix springboards from a base of peanuts, seeds, and granola ($6.99/lb.), and the Getting Nutty blend wards off hunger for hours with a hearty helping of almonds, raw organic cashews, pretzels, dried fruit, and a powerful hex on stomach rumbles ($10.99/lb.). The Totally Nuts! medley replenishes dwindling stashes of fiber and antioxidants with the nutty sustenance of its brother mixes plus cashews, brazil nuts, pecans, and walnuts ($12.99/lb.).
Custom gift trays and tins with one to four compartments ($2+) bear up to 4 pounds of personalized snack combinations, such as a heaping scoop of tequila pistachios ($3 for a quarter-pound) or house-made honey cinnamon banana chips ($6.99/lb.), perfect for celebrating birthdays or the 20th anniversary of one's last dental exam. The certified-green business prepares heart-healthy fare with environmentally friendly practices and ensures shoppers adhering to gluten-free or vegan diets have ample options.
