‘No Nuts’ Gluten-Free Seed & fruit mix
I received the Enjoy Life ‘No Nuts’ Gluten-free Seed & Fruit mixes in their new packaging from Enjoy life foods a little while ago. Have to say, I really like the new packaging, but the best thing is what is inside!
Enjoy Life Seed and Fruit mix are Gluten-free, as well as free of tree nuts. They contain no artificial ingredients, Trans fats or Genetically Modified Ingredients and are Vegan, Kosher Pareve and casein-free so they are really healthy!
I love these snacks, they are packed with nutrition, allergy friendly and best of all, are very filling! I love that my daughter can take them to school without worrying about contaminating any one that may have nut allergies. They are also a big hit with her friends, and a great for energy filled snack after school for those homework get-togethers.
The new packaging can now be found in the stores in the same wonderful flavors, Beach Bash and Mountain Mambo. My favorite is the Beach Bash; I really like the bits of pineapple and cranberries. It tends to be a little sweeter because of the pineapple but it is well worth it. My daughter loves the Mountain Mambo; the chocolate chips did her in!
