SunRidge Farms Chocolate, Almonds, and Trail Mix Review

An inspiring company called SunRidge Farms recently sent me some amazing products to review and I'm super excited to tell you about them. Sun Ridge Farms, a company that focuses on sustainable farming and Earth-friendly business procedures whenever possible, specializes in natural and organic nuts, dried fruits, trail mixes, and candy. Here are a few of their products I got to try:

Organic Deluxe Trail Mix (celebrating its 30th birthday this year):
A mix of organic dried apricots, roasted peanuts, raw almonds, dried apples, walnuts, date pieces, sunflower seeds, and raisins. This was my favorite of the SunRidge Farms products we tried*.
Raw USDA-certified almonds ready-to-eat. They're also perfect for baking delicious dishes like my Whole World in His Hands Cookies! These almonds were my husband's favorite of the SunRidge Farms products we received*.
Hit the Trail:
 A mix of USDA-certified organic roasted tamari almonds, sunflower seeds, cashews, raisins, peanuts, and pumpkin seeds.

Milk Chocolate Earth Balls (looks like mini-globes, fun for Earth Day):
These solid milk chocolate balls wrapped in foil that looks like the planet Earth are as delicious as they are cute. We all gobbled them down, and they are the star of my Whole World in His Hands Cookies. *These were everyone's actual favorite thing, but since they are solid milk chocolate with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives, it didn't seem like a fair fight. So I also told you our other favorites.
What's especially awesome about SunRidge Farms is that they try to promote healthy living and not just to produce delicious and healthy food (although they are great at that.) Some of their corporate policies towards that end include placing 2,500 American-made solar panels on the roof of their candy factory and warehouses, paying employees to ride bikes to work instead of driving (when I tell my Dad that he is totally going to wish he worked there), using biodiesel and hybrid vehicles for delivery and sales vehicles, and providing employee recreation facilities like a 24 hr gym and free yoga classes. And I love that they are doing all this stuff voluntarily. SunRidge Farms products are totally delicious and worth seeking out. They're available online and at many healthy food retailers around the nation.

I received free samples of the four products mentioned above for review purposes, but received no other compensation besides sample products and warm fuzzy feelings.
