  3. I have been trying to lose weight too. This pregnancy weight is so stubborn but i still want to eat these nuts coz i like spicy

  4. I love nuts! They are such a great and healthy snack for anyone!

  5. Oh, yes please! I will take a bowl with a cold beer....they look delicious:)

  6. These are great!
    I love spicy nuts, as long as they're not too spicy
    I think I'll go for the pecans (not walnuts)

  7. What a great way to snack during a hike or next to a beer. Nuts are so filling and healthy and the spiciness makes them interesting and engaging!

  8. They do look delicious but the worse thing is you can't stop eating them :)
