In the past few weeks I have been buying bags of mixed nuts to crack and eat for snacks, particularly in the evening when on this site. Just run of the mill hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, etc... I wash them down with a glass of cold apple cider. What is it about this time of year that brings about a craving for this? I have no desire to drink cider in the warm months, unless it is a hard cider. I only buy the mixed nuts around the holidays too. Any thoughts?
