Santa Cruz couple opens a unique nut bar in downtown Santa Cruz
Most nuts make wonderful, healthy snacks packed with protein, fiber, minerals and healthy oils.
At Santa Cruz's new Nut Kreations, there are plenty of nutty products to pick from.
On my first visit, I was bedazzled and overwhelmed by the selection as I eyed the rows of triangular dishes in the U-shaped glass-fronted display case. Nuts are raw, roasted, spiced or sugared. There are also candied pretzels, chocolate chips and beautiful dried fruit, some of it also seasoned; everything you need to create a signature trail mix or granola. Attractive wall cabinets hold nut roasters, butters, oils, flours, syrups, sauces, extracts, teas, coffees and cookbooks.
