things i love thursday (and another giveaway)...

We bought this bag of nuts at the Farmer's Market a few weeks ago because we have met the woman behind the company.  It's a friend of a friend kind of thing so I know this statement is not true but I'm telling you..............these nuts must have crack in them. 

It's the only explanation I have for why I couldn't stop eating them.  I LOVED THEM.  Best I've ever had anywhere.  I want you to try them and I wish I could give all of you a taste but until Publisher's Clearing House knocks on my door I cannot. 

I can, however, give one of you a bag so I will!  Just leave me a comment on this post about which food you can't stop eating once you start.  I'll announce a winner on Monday.

If you don't win, or don't want to wait - you can order them online here.  By the way, the owner of the company doesn't even know I'm doing this.  This is about something I love, not advertising.

For the record, I've never tasted crack, crackers yes, crack no.  Nuts yes, nuts laced with crack....maybe.

I am that way about several foods, but it seems to cycle through the year - sometimes this, another time, that. But winegums, when I have them - will eat a whole bad if not careful. Roasted nuts - so that they are just crunchy - that would be another. Be SURE there are many others! Yikes!

If those nuts taste as good as they look, I can understand why you can't stop eating them. My downfall - the freshly popped kettle corn. Cathy

Kristin said...

YUM, I am all about roasted nuts!

Brenda Kula said...

Let me see...what do I eat that I can't stop with one. Well, it isn't Lays Potato Chips, which is what the advertising proclaims. I use to be that way about M&M's though. Until I started getting flab around my middle!

There are a lot of things I can't stop eating once I start. Hagen Daas Five ice cream and Panda black licorice come to mind. I do love nuts as well. :)

kroney said...

Cute name for the product! I'm not a cinnamon fan but I shall have to taste those one of these days.
Yes Maria, but I prefer the Fruit Gums, only Marks and Spencers of course! Just one and I'm a gonner!

Jude said...

Heehee, these sound incredible, crack or no! :) I suppose I'm a hopeless potato chip type (like the lay's motto says - can't eat just one!). Dark chocolate bars with fruit are another (very) close second :)
