Savory Nut Mix for The Nut Job

How many people out there enjoy one form or another of a snack mix during the year? Raise your hands. During the holidays it seems every family pulls out their tried and true recipes and we are no different. The aromas of toasted nuts permeate the entire house. And in every family there is always that individual who is the nut picker. No finger pointing here but you know who you are.

And if you have a houseful of them it can lead to some pretty boring snack mixes once the nuts are gone. Sounds like an interesting premise for a movie doesn’t it. Well they’ve beaten us to the punch. This January is going to get interesting at your local movie theater, coming to the big screen is The Nut Job.

To accompany our excitement about this movie, we’ve created a special healthy trail mix of nuts we think will be in the film. This mix will be perfect for your young ones and should get them pumped up for seeing this movie.

The combination of Mixed Nuts with extra Cashews has the same coating we use when making Chex Party Mix – butter, seasoned salt and Worcestershire Sauce. We just make a few minor adjustments to the ratios of ingredients. Doug and the boys were in heaven with all the trial runs.

This January’s movie season is looking to get a little nutty with the new movie The Nut Job. This movie is about a squirrel who, after accidentally burning the nut supply of a park full of critters, decides to steal another winter supply from a nut store.

The Nut Job in Theaters January 17

The premise seems simple enough, but what will really shine is the movie’s cast. With an all star cast including Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser with Liam Neeson and Katherine Heigl, I’m looking forward to seeing how this cast will interact.

The movie looks like great fun for kids as well as their parents. The combination of the cast and premise, along with the animation, reminds me of the old movie Over the Hedge, which makes me very excited. It could very well be the first great animated movie of the year.
