Carolyn & Paul of Ricky's Lucky Nuts have been absolutely wonderful! These guys are located in Durango, Colorado and make "all natural, grown in the U.S.A. gourmet peanuts." "Ricky's Lucky Nuts was founded upon the revelation that a perfect marriage of peanuts and spices could be created to bring something entirely new to the marketplace."
We contacted them about a sponsorship for our journey and they quickly hopped on board! (: Lucky for us, our thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail fits right in with their newest marketing campaign - about the adventure of flavor with Ricky's! They shipped us boxes of their individual packets [2oz each] which will be awesome for the light packing that we're going to have to do. The flavors include: Cocoa & Vanilla bean, Bombay Curry Coconut, Original, Spicy Chile Chipolte, and Black Pepper & Salt. I'm sure we'll both have our favorite flavors...my guess for Mike is the Spicy Chile Chipotle & for me either the Cocoa & Vanilla bean or the Bombay Curry Coconut! We will see!
They also sent us some awesome apparel -- shirts and hats for the journey! We'll be posting pictures with those as soon as we start the trip! (: Thanks Carolyn, Paul & everyone at Ricky's Lucky Nuts! Your nuts rock!
Friends be sure to check out their website! They have some really cool things at the bottom of the page about The World of Spice & Serving Ideas! Find them on facebook & become their friend or "like" them! They've supported me & Mike, we'd appreciate it if you support them! (:
