Gourmet Orchards **Closed**

Gourmet Orchards is a fabulous site that sells quality gourmet gifts online.  They offer a variety of different types of nuts and fresh Arizona Citrus fruit,  that makes  wonderful gifts or treats for yourself.  Gourmet Orchards selects the finest ingredients available and then roast them in small batches,   to make one of the most freshest and high quality products available.  They hand select and pack each Arizona Citrus fruit,   to provide the freshest online Citrus that you can buy.  Gourmet Orchards guarantees that your order will ship within 3 business days of ordering your product(s).

Gourmet Orchards was kind enough to let me select some of their products to review.  I LOVE nuts so it was a hard decision for me to choose just three,  as they have so many different types of nuts that look delicious!  They offer 5 different types of nuts including: Peanuts,  Pistachios,  Walnuts,  Almonds and Cashews.  I ended up choosing :  Chocolate Toffee Peanuts,  Dark Chocolate Almonds,  and Honey Roasted Peanuts.  Each of their bags of nuts weigh one pound and come in a clear package with a label on it.  They were packaged in tan crinkled paper and fit perfectly in the small cardboard box. 

Their Honey Roasted Peanuts looked like the average roasted peanut but sure didn't taste average!  Gourmet Orchards slow roasts their peanuts in their special honey glaze leaving them with a perfect taste.  They are very reasonably priced at $3.99 for one pound of Gourmet Honey Roasted Peanuts.  They make a perfect addition to  snack trays for parties and get togethers or would even taste great used in recipes!  The honey glaze is what really makes these roasted peanuts.

My favorite was the Dark Chocolate Almonds!  You will especially like them if you are a fan of Dark Chocolate and Almonds.  Gourmet Orchards coats the Candied Almonds in the most finest Dark Chocolate  available.  The Dark Chocolate coating was very soft and almost melted in my mouth.  These Dark Chocolate Covered Almonds come in a one pound bag and cost $7.99.  Pair them with another bag or two of Gourmet Orchard Nuts and you have a perfect gift for someone.  

Last but not least i tried their Chocolate Toffee Peanuts.  I chose to review them because the thought of peanuts covered in Toffee with Chocolate sounded out of this world!  The texture of the Chocolate Toffee Peanuts was totally different than the other two that i reviewed.   The Chocolate Toffee Peanuts had an unexpected crunch to them.  One bite of these and you will definitely taste the toffee that is hiding underneath the Chocolate. If you are a fan of Toffee and Peanuts then these are definitely for you!      

My kids had a fun time playing with the nuts...yes they played with them!  They made funny faces out of their nuts and when they were done they got to eat their creations.  Luckily my children do not have any allergies to nuts!
