Yum and Nuts are two words that go together just perfectly in my vocabulary. Almonds, walnuts, peanuts ... I like them all. Of course, I have to be careful with these crunchy snacks that Mother Nature has blessed us with because they are very addicting, yet possess a fairly high fat content (granted, it is healthy fats). Nonetheless, when I took a bite of YumNuts Naturals Chocolate Cashews, I went Nuts for YumNuts (I couldn't resist saying that).
This sweet creation reminds me of a peanut M&M because there is a thin coating over each cashew, which adds a slight crunch and the perfect level of candy sweetness. However, YumNuts has ditched the fat-laden milk chocolate shell that is characteristic of many chocolate covered nuts (such as the aforementioned M&M's) for a cocoa, candy shell. The candy crunch contrasts the naturally smooth and buttery cashew very nicely. Thankfully, the customary cashew flavor profile is not overpowered and shines through just perfectly.
