My Thoughts:

I was recently sent a "Snack Pack" to review and just had to share my thoughts with you, not only on the quality and appearance of this innovative healthy snack/gift idea, but also on the taste.  First, look at how neat the sampler I was sent was packaged.

I tried to take an up-close pictures of the nuts and dried fruit just to give you an idea of how big the pieces are, compared to other dried fruit and nut mixes.

What sets Nibbles apart from other customized dried fruit and nut snack companies, is that they use only the finest of ingredients.  With each handful you enjoy, you can not only see the freshest organic and all natural ingredients used, but each customized mix is so delicious.

The four snack selections you are looking at above include:

1) Apple Pecan Pie -- Includes apples, pecan halves and golden raisins
2) Tropical Treat -- Includes pineapple rings, sliced mango and shaved coconut 
3) Seedy Affair -- Includes honey-roasted sunflower seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds and soy nuts
4) Apricot Blossom -- Includes blenheim apricots and hazelnuts

Each of these snack blends were amazing.  My favorite was the apple pecan pie mix, which when you placed a sampling of each piece in your mouth, it tasted like the inside of a freshly baked apple pie with pecans.  Who would have thought that golden raisins would go wonderfully with the dried apples and pecan halves?  But, they work great and add to the flavor of the apples.  My husband, on the other hand, enjoyed the tropical treat mix the most, as he is a fan of pineapple rings and coconut.  He is the one in the family who usually eats healthy snack dried fruit and nut mixes on the go, and as a mid-day snack at work.  When he first saw the box of mixes from Nibbles, he couldn't get over how big the nuts were and how plump the and fresh the dried fruit looked.  As he helped me sample each of the snack mixes, I continually heard from him, "Mmm, wow that tastes good."  He wondered what he was eating before when spending top dollar on so-called natural and organic healthy snack mixes, as they tasted nothing like the ones from Nibbles -- which were "out of this world."

This sampler box didn't last the night.  Within a half hour of sampling, the containers were empty, and we both had happy bellies and smiles on our face.  I love the idea of being able to choose your own snack mixes and sending these to family or friends, or to yourself.  They make for a great alternative to gift baskets, which don't usually let you customize to your liking.  Anyone who tries Nibbles snack selections will be instant fans, and will want to re-order.  After sampling firsthand, I am excited to find another great gift idea for the health conscious people on my shopping list, as well as for those people who have everything.  The only problem I see is narrowing down the snack selection choices, as they look so good.  And, as you read each description of the mixes, your mouth with water -- so, make sure you aren't browsing on an empty stomach. :-)
