Nuts are ever-popular healthy snacking options, and the star of the show for holiday baking. We know that you’ll use them in so many recipes this holiday season, and want you to get the best possible deal ever on bulk nuts! This week all bulk nuts are 33% off for co-op owners by showing the email coupon from the weekly e-news. Deals this good have to have limits, so this one-week coupon only applies to nuts: no granola with nuts, no chocolate covered nuts, etc., but it does include almonds, pecans, and other nuts, and even our “grind it yourself” nut butters!
Holiday Parties, Baking, and Shopping
Of course the mixed nut bowl is a standard at holiday parties, but nuts can do so much more. Fancy them up, for example with this recipe for Sugared Pecans. Use them in holiday baking, such as these Chocolate Almond Coconut Bites.
Did you know that nuts are a great vegetarian protein source? They’re healthy and energizing which makes them the perfect snack to help you get through work during the busy holiday season. Take some shopping for a pick-me-up when you’re standing in line or stuck in traffic. Make these Protein-Packed Date and Almond Bites with added vegan or whey protein and you’ll have a delicious snack that’s packed full of nutrition!
The Benefits of Bulk
Shopping at the bulk bins has many benefits. For starters, you can buy just the amount of nuts you need, eliminating waste and keeps the product in your kitchen fresh. Bulk products are also, in general, less expensive than their prepackaged counterparts.
Bulk bins reduce product packaging, and shoppers are welcome to bring reusable containers to further eliminate waste. I like to use Ball jars and keep a couple in my shopping bags all the time. Don’t forget to have your container weighed before filling it up!
Finally, bulk foods reduce the product’s transportation footprint, as items can be packed more densely in trucks, and there is no transportation of packing materials beforehand.
If you’ve never shopped at the bulk bins, read our post about how to do it, here. (There’s also a video starring Christy at our Hillsborough store.) Then head on over to our store and let the nuts roll!
