Gourmet Orchards Review and Giveaway!



I love chocolate-covered peanuts, but I was recently given the opportunity to try some other chocolate covered nuts from Gourmet Orchards.
I received 8 oz. each of Chocolate Pecans, Dark Chocolate Almonds, and Honey-Roasted Peanuts. After tasting each variety, all I can say is WOW! 




I became hooked on honey roasted peanuts several years ago, and Gourmet Orchards makes some great honey roasted peanuts! These nuts are slow roasted in a special honey glaze, and they are the perfect snack when you want something sweet and salty! I've had honey roasted peanuts that were too sweet before, but these are perfect. 
The dark chocolate almonds (that I had to hide from other family-members by the way!) are also delicious. Almonds are one of my favorite nuts, and when you top them with rich, dark chocolate...can you say scrumptious?! The almonds are very flavorful, and the nutty taste isn't buried in chocolate. You get a full blend of almond and dark chocolate.
Okay, I saved the best for last-Chocolate Pecans. I love pecans, and I love chocolate. Pecans are my all-time favorite nut, and I love to eat them by themselves, or as an add-in to different foods. However, I have found a new favorite, thanks to Gourmet Orchards. When the package came in I opened the chocolate pecans and thought I'd try just one. Ummm....that didn't work. I ate one...then another...then another. I ended up indulging a little! (Hey, it was the day before Thanksgiving...I might as well get started early!) These are the perfect indulgence, and are something I will be purchasing in the future!


If you're looking for some gourmet nuts for a gift basket this year, or would just like a snack for yourself, I highly recommend Gourmet Orchards. Their prices are very reasonable, the nuts are heavenly, and orders are fulfilled very quickly...you can't beat it! Gourmet Orchards also offers seasonal Citrus fruits if you'd like some fruit to go with your nuts!
