I thought I'd start in this forum...

 

Back when MDC was doing coops there was a very popular place where we ordered dried fruit and nuts from. I'd like to order some stuff again for the holidays but I can't find the name and the forum is closed. I ordered a bunch of stuff a couple of years ago and I can't remember it all, but I know I got 2 types of raisins, really great dried pineapple, dried mango, and raw almonds.

 

I think the name had 2 words in it.

 

Anyone? Pleeeeze? fingersx.gif

The brain is a funny thing. After weeks of trying to remember the name once I posted it came to me after an hour.

Their stuff is delicious. The Hunza raisins (which look puny but taste amazing) and the dried pineapple are great.

 

I've also ordered from nutsonline.com and had good results.

 

Happy snacking! yummy.gif

umsami, I've been on an MDC break so I didn't know about new DS. Alhamdulillah! (And early Eid Mubarak!) I miss the coops too.

 

pixiepunk, thanks for the info. Off to find the Yahoo group.
