A key ingredient for a couple of my favorite recipes has become very hard to find—M&M’s® baking bits. I use them in a protein bar recipe, as well as some tasty dessert bars, but you can’t find this product on store shelves any longer. An Internet search reveals I’m not the only one having trouble tracking down this ingredient.
My search for the baking bits led me back to a family-owned company I’ve done business with before, and a recent order revealed it still has the same great customer service it did when I ordered from it last year. The company is undergoing a name change from Nuts Online to Nuts.com, but it’s under the same ownership and still has the same huge selection of products. The company is one of the only online sources for Mini M&M baking bits—it sells them in the milk chocolate variety. It also sells a “generic” version of the baking bits in a semisweet variety. These products are just the tip of the iceberg, though, when it comes to Nuts.com inventory.
You can find a huge selection of dried fruit, including blueberries, boysenberries, dates, guava, nectarines, pineapple, raspberries and strawberries. Many of these products come in multiple varieties. For example, the 18 types of dried strawberries include varieties with and without added sugar, organic and baby strawberries and a strawberry powder for smoothies.
True to its name, the company has a large selection of nuts as well, including 115 different products in the almond category, 34 cashew choices and 25 walnut selections. Hazelnuts, chestnuts, peanuts, soy nuts and macadamia nuts rank among your other options.
The website also sells chocolate, candy, coffee, tea and gift baskets. You’ll find a substantial selection of products for cooking as well, including decorations, fillings, toppings, flours, sweeteners and salts.
Nuts.com offers you a choice of shipping methods, and you can even select the day you want your item to ship. Friendly emails confirm your order and let you know when it’s on its way. The company processes orders very quickly. I got a free sample of a product not on my shopping list included in my most-recent purchase. Nuts.com also offers a satisfaction guarantee.
I have not done extensive price comparisons, but I do know the cost of dates from Nuts.com was lower than those at my supermarket. I try to buy all the items I’ll need for the foreseeable future in one order to minimize my shipping costs.
Whether you’re looking for a hard-to-find item like M&M’s baking bits or just a wide selection of your favorite fruits and nuts, you’ll find it at Nuts.com. You can also count on excellent customer service that will keep you coming back.
