Another great impulse buy at my beloved Fresh & Easy — behold my new find, Mareblu
Naturals Pistachio Trail Mix Crunch. I know I shouldn’t be eating pistachios right now, but they are one of my favorite nuts so how can I say no when these went on sale for only $0.99. Mareblu Naturals offers ALOT of different varieties that are all natural, cholesterol free, 0 grams of trans fat, 100% vegan, gluten free, kosher, low in sodium, dairy-free, wheat-free, peanut-free, no preservatives and all made in the USA. The pouch is resealable so it is very convenient to take with you wherever you go. Nuts are naturally high in fat (MUFA) and calories so I was not surprised when 1/4 cup (28g) is 174 calories, 13 grams of fat (2 grams saturated), zero cholesterol, 39 milligram of sodium, 9 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of dietary fiber, 4 grams of sugar and 5 grams of protein. This trail mix is very tasty and HIGHLY addictive. The pistachio trail mix crunch is composed of slowly dry-roasted cashews, almonds, pistachios and pumpkins seeds with some sea salt and then molded together with organic evaporated cane juice and rice syrup. They chop the cluster of nuts into bite size pieces, and you get chunks and chunks of whole nuts in every morsel. The nuts are dry-roasted to perfection (no oily residue) and they taste really fresh and has a big crunch factor. Judging with the naked-eye, the mix contains mostly almonds, then cashew, then pistachio and lastly the pumpkin seeds. However, I can taste all the nut flavors in here, especially my favorite pistachio flavor. Yummy. The whole 4 ounce package contains about 4 servings, so portion control is highly recommending when you are dealing with something this tasty. The weather is getting pretty hot lately, so I like to enjoy these with a big glass of iced tea. Prefect afternoon snack on a lazy Sunday. Fresh & Easy also had the CranMango Cashew Crunch and the Cranblueberry Trail mix Crunch on sale for $0.99 as well. Go pick up some if you are one of the lucky people that live close to a Fresh & Easy.
