Kar’s Nuts was founded in 1933, in a tiny kitchen in their home across the street from Tiger Stadium in Detroit. Here, Sue Kar roasted and sold peanuts to Tiger fans. The peanuts became so popular that a manufacturing plant was soon built to distribute peanuts to retailers throughout Metro Detroit. The company was sold to the Nicolay family in the 1960’s, and continues today as a family-run business. Still based in Michigan, Kar’s Nuts now roasts and packages nuts and trail mixes carried by convenience stores, grocery chains and club stores throughout America.
Above are the varieties I tried and let me tell you everyone of them are delicious and such a great snack for on the go. I kept them in my purse and diaper bag so that when I was out and about I always had a healthy snack to snack on.
The Wholesome Medley is delicious and great for anyone like me with a bit of a sweet tooth. They have fruit and chocolate along with the nuts so you get a bite of sweetness in every handful.
The Premium Duet are pretty yummy too! I love cashews so while these don't have the sweetness like the fruit and chocolate blends they are a great healthy snack that I very much enjoyed.
The Simplicity Medley has nuts and fruit along with some sunflower seeds. This was delicious as well and again great for anyone that likes a little bit of sweetness with every bite. I preferred these over the Wholesome Medley but only because I'm not a huge fan of chocolate. If your a chocolate lover you'd probably prefer the Wholesome Medley.
The Naked Medley was pretty good as well! It had lots of raisins almonds and my favorite cashews! Again this had just the right amount of sweetness in every bite which I loved.
California Almonds are great too! These are a perfect healthy snacking option. They are rich source of nutrients, including vitamin E, calcium, folic acid and protein. I'm not a huge fan of just almonds but these were the yummiest almonds I've ever had. They were sweet and tasted very fresh.
Kars Apple Nut Trailbreak was my absolute favorite! I absolutely loved the pieces of apple that were covered in the cinnamon and sugar from the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. The yogurt covered raisins were also a nice addition and the dried cranberries really tied it all together. This one was a bit sweeter but since I have a bit of a sweet tooth I thought it was wonderful. The nuts did help it to not be overly sweet and to me made it a perfect snack.
