Got the nuts from the stand when we passed by on our way to look at the river. Didn't eat them right away, but saved them for later. Great snack to snack on while riding along the ole Park highway.

We love both Mexico and Alaska and are delighted to help bring them together for you in Talkeetna. We use traditional recipes, make our own tortillas daily and give preference to local and organic ingredients. On Main Street, by the river. Enjoy!
