Next to my wallet and my "Omg! I wish I had a...." Kit, you'll almost always find a bag of almonds tucked in my Longchamp. When I'm out and about, sometimes unexplained hunger hits me and I'm so famished that I could faint.
Almonds (particularly of the Cocoa Roasted variety) are the perfect snack to get me back on my feet. Unlike granola bars, almonds don't get squished or squashed as easily. Unlike fruit, it can sit in my bag for a few days without worrying about... whatever, I don't even want to think about fruit rotting in my handbag!
I was flipping through a magazine- can't think of the name.... and I saw an advertisement for these super cute tiny almond tins. Apparently California Almonds were giving them away, but now they are selling them for less than $2.
I googled "favor tins" and found all sorts of really cute tins that are supposed to be for weddings. I think the possibilities are endless!!!
Any other almond fans???
