AMC Gift Card Giveaway: The Nut Job Movie

We are a snackin’ kind of family. Pretty much any type of snack including nuts, we just love.  In every family though, there is always that individual who is the nut picker, the one that picks the nuts from the party mix. No finger pointing here but you know who you are.

And if you have a houseful of them it can lead to some pretty boring snack mixes once the nuts are gone. Sounds like an interesting premise for a movie doesn’t it. Well they’ve beaten us to the punch. This January is going to get interesting at your local movie theater, coming to the big screen is The Nut Job.

The Nut Job in Theaters January 17

To accompany our excitement about this movie, we’ve created a special healthy trail mix of nuts – Savory Nut Mix –  we think will be in the film. This mix will be perfect for your young ones and should get them pumped up for seeing this movie.

The combination of Mixed Nuts with extra Cashews has the same coating we use when making Chex Party Mix – butter, seasoned salt and Worcestershire Sauce. We just make a few minor adjustments to the ratios of ingredients. Doug and the boys were in heaven with all the trial runs.

Recipe for Savory Nut Mix

This January’s movie season is looking to get a little nutty with the new movie The Nut Job. This movie is about a squirrel who, after accidentally burning the nut supply of a park full of critters, decides to steal another winter supply from a nut store.

The premise seems simple enough, but what will really shine is the movie’s cast. With an all star cast including Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser with Liam Neeson and Katherine Heigl, I’m looking forward to seeing how this cast will interact.

The movie looks like great fun for kids as well as their parents. The combination of the cast and premise, along with the animation, reminds me of the old movie Over the Hedge, which makes me very excited. It could very well be the first great animated movie of the year.
