If you want to impress someone with a delectable assortment of certified organic dried fruits, nuts and chocolates, I need to tell you about my latest find.   I was sent a Sampler Gift Box from Bella Viva Orchards for this review that you need to hear about if you are still searching for that perfect holiday gift.

Bella Viva Orchards located in Northern California has even been featured in a segment on Martha Stewart’s television show for the quality of their dried fruits and nuts.  Trust me, you will understand why once you dig into their unbelievably delicious products for yourself.

My Sampler Gift Box included a tempting mixture of their dried fruits, mixed salted nuts consisting of almonds, pecans, cashews, and Brazil nuts, as well as chocolate-covered fruits and nuts.  What I noticed first before sampling anything was the beautiful bright color their fruit possessed and unoxidized essence.

The taste of every piece of dried fruit I sampled was hardly what you think of when you picture dried apples, prunes, nectarines, peaches, pears, and apricots.  Bella Viva Orchards variety were plump, moist, and bursting with flavor unlike their dry, shriveled up counterparts.  The nuts inside my box were fresh as well.  The chocolate was a nice touch and only intensified the flavor.

The reason their dried fruits and nuts are so amazing has to be the special method of drying developed by the Martino Family farms over the course of their 60 years.  This allows them to fully control all the phases of their crops in growing through the final stages of packaging and delivery to customers and restaurants locally as well as worldwide.

My family and I truly enjoyed the Bella Viva Orchards Sampler Gift Box.  Honestly, I think if you’re at a loss as to what to send someone on your holiday gift shopping list, then I highly recommend them.

The company is giving my readers 15% off all online orders now through the end of December when you enter nuts4stuff at checkout.

Now you have no excuse to put off that last minute gift because I gave you the perfect solution with something wonderful from Bella Viva Orchards as shown in this review!

    Wow, lol BellaViva's YouTube videos are actually kind of interesting. I watched the Almond Harvesting, Hulling, & Shelling video and learned that small machines are used to shake the almonds to the ground where another machine sweeps them.
