I Dropped An FBomb, So I’ve Ordered Another One

Last Friday, I dropped an FBomb…apparently. I was in my hometown to celebrate my cousin’s 98th birthday. I stopped into my favorite restaurant to grab a bite and there on the counter sat a box of FBomb Salted Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter. I’m a fan of everything the name includes – salt, chocolate, macadamia nuts, and fbombs. I bought one to try later.

The next morning after sorting through bags of trash mixed with recycling, financial records, and family photos in my cousin’s house, I was hungry. There’s no food in her house other than leaking canned goods I need to don a hazmat suit to clean up. No problem – I had an FBomb in my car. Except I didn’t.

I couldn’t find it anywhere. I looked in my purse, briefcase, ashtray, cup holder, and console. I looked beside the seats, under the seats, and in the trunk. I found a plastic spoon, a coupon, and a toy car, but no FBomb. I can only conclude that I dropped it on the way from the restaurant to my car. It’s possible. It wasn’t in a bag. Due to this unfortunate circumstance, I can’t tell you whether the flavor is good or the texture pleasant. I’ll just tell you what I know.

The packaging is attractive. I like the logo, black background, and contrasting bright colors. I noticed the product immediately. Once I read the ingredients and saw that it was a single serving, I was ready to purchase.

If you have an aversion to the word fat, this is not the snack for you. It is full of fat, including 4 grams of saturated fat. Although it contains cane syrup, it only has 1 gram of added sugar and it’s low in sodium. This is the kind of snack that can fill you up without relying on carbs. It’s also the kind of snack that’s great when you’re traveling and gluten-free.

Some research indicates that macadamia and other nuts are good for your heart and can help lower the risk of coronary artery disease in those with elevated cholesterol. They are also a source of thiamin and manganese. Nuts and nut butters also contain beneficial fiber.

All FBomb Nut Butters contain macadamia nuts. One flavor combines macadamias with coconut. One has pecans and sea salt, and the fourth just has sea salt. I’ve ordered a sample pack that contains all four flavors. That will give me a chance to sample every flavor before I buy in bulk. I threw in a second sample pack to use for stocking stuffers.

That pretty much sums up what I know about FBombs other than how to drop them. If you’ve tried this product, was it good? We’d love to hear what you think.

Time to Stock up for the Holidays from Nuts.com!

With Halloween behind us, I’m reminded that it’s already time to stock up for the holidays! When I plan my Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, I automatically make a list of items to order from Nuts.com.
NutsBag
Soon after I begin the meal planning, I make a Christmas gift list. It naturally includes even more items I need from Nuts.com. Before you know it, my order is placed and I’m waiting with happy anticipation for a HUGE box of goodies to arrive!

When I first discovered this company, it was called NutsOnline but it’s been around much longer than the internet. In 1929, it began as a family business called Newark Nut Company. Today, it is still a family business with great quality products, packaging, and service.

If you follow a gluten-free diet, there’s a menu link just for you. It leads to a section for Cooking & Baking, as well as for Snacks, Chocolates & Sweets, Nuts, and Dried Fruit.

Within the Cooking & Baking Section, you can choose from more than 30 flours including: Almond, Organic Coconut, Tapioca, Organic Rice, Sweet White Rice, White Sorghum, Chickpea, Chestnut, Millet, Cashew, Hazelnut, Peanut, Pistachio, Pumpkin Seed, Green Pea, Chia, and Black Bean. Also in this section, you’ll find a variety of salad toppings, candy wafers, dried fruit, and fillings.

The Gluten-Free Snack section offers Fried Green Peas, Veggie Chips, Parmesan Garlic Half Popped Popcorn, and Dry Roasted Edamame. You can also find Kale Chips, Trail Mix and unusual granola like Cherry Chia Kale Granola! I’ve never tried the granolas. Perhaps I’ll include one of them in my next order.

Certain to be in my order are Raw Almonds, Raw Cashews, Dried Cantaloupe, Dried Bing Cherries, Halawi Dates, Turkish Figs, Costa Rican Coffee, and some Astronaut Ice Cream Sandwiches.
