Fruit and Nut Medley

I try to eat healthy.  So, instead of candy, I try to eat Fruit & Nut Medley by Kirkland Signature. 

Fruit and nut Kirkland

Fruit and Nut Medley comes in a 56oz bag for $12.28

It contains following food items.

  • Peanuts
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Apples
  • Kiwi
  • Mangoes
  • Papaya
  • Pineapples
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Cherries
  • Golden Raisins

It's Kirkland Signature (good quality food) I enjoy them too much.


Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

I wish I would have read the packaging first..."product of USA, China, Thailand, & Phillipines." With the crap China puts in dog food and baby food, I really don't want to be eating products from there. That being said I tried it before I read the label..and it is very good. To the person that said leave out the bananas, I'm with you on that. I didn't find very many raisins as someone else said..there were a lot of cherries they may have confused with raisins. I won't buy this again, unless China is removed from the sourcing.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

I have been recently reading up on ingredients added to foods and have read a scientifically researched article on foods sold here in the US that are banned in other countries based on their ingredients like arsenic in chicken. So I go to Costco the next day for other items and picked up this bag for a "healthy snack on my way home from work. Only when I got home did I read the ingredients (its fruit and nuts, how bad can it be?). Well when I read "FD & C Yellow 5 and FD & C Blue 2, artificial flavors all added to Kiwi, Apple chunks - artificial flavor added, Lime - artificial flavor added, Strawberries - yellow die, red die and artificial flavor added.

Needless to say - this IS NOT healthy!!! Sadly, I won't be purchasing it again.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

I eat an unhealthy amount of this. To all those complaining about the proportions in any one bag: there's a huge variance. Some bags are very balanced while some are overloaded by one thing or another. I do, however, think they they overdo the kiwis and papaya due to it's clustering.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

Too many nuts and raisins!!!! I wish there was more fruit...

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

good healthy snack and not a bad source of energy either. i also eat it with ice cream. try it!

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

Too many large sugary fruits. Can't find the nuts in there. Too much sugar. The kiwis all clump together into a big sugary mess that I just throw away. More fruit and nut, less sugar would be good.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

I too have liked this Fruit and Nut medley for a very long time, but with the recent addition of different fruits I think they have made a mistake.. I've been eating a bag with the cherries added and I just think that there is way too many cherries in proportion to the other fruits!! the cherries are way too tart to have so many in there I feel like they completely overwhelm everything else I've been eating and make it so I may as well have bought a bag of tart cherries.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

So that's what it is!! The ratio of dried fruits and nuts off! I purchased a bag today after not consuming it for at least two years and instantly noticed that it did not taste the same as before. Like a poster mentioned above, it really is now a nuts and raisins blend!! I miss the large amount of dried strawberries that used to be in this medley. It really is a shame that this medley is not as good as it once was. I have fond memories of scarfing this medley down in high school :(

Btw, the yellow dried pineapple-looking fruits in the picture is the apple chunks. One is located to the right of the kiwi slice in the top right hand corner of the picture.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

i rarely find some apple in my mix whenever i buy this item.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

Mm... interesting.
I don't remember apple there either.
I don't think there is apple in my picture.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

i thoroughly enjoy this snack...especially when medicated

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

yeaaaa esp that purple medication

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

?
I don't get it.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

What do you mean? "when medicated"?

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

I have noticed that the Fruit & Nut medley is not as good as it used to be. The past t3 or 4 bags I bought were mostly nuts & raisins. They contained only a third of the fruit that used to be in the package. I don't think I will be buying it anymore and that is a shame because I have been buying it since Costco started selling it.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

That stuff is awesome; the only thing I would recommend is taking out the bananas. They dry them out too much and they end up being too hard.

Re: Fruit and Nut Medley

Right, bananas are the hardest item from the bunch.
