Mixed Nuts is a basic common plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Solar class. It costs 3 to play, and has 2/2. It does not have any traits, and its ability gives it +2/+2 when it is played on a lane with a Team-Up plant already on it.
It is based on the snack in real life with the same name.

They work hard but they also like to party. That's them in a nutshell.
By itself, Mixed Nuts is not a very powerful plant. However, using cheap Team-Up plants like Admiral Navy Bean, Sunflower, Wall-Nut, Potato Mine, or Torchwood can quickly turn this into a decent plant, let alone any Team-Up plant. However, you can only boost this plant once.
Think before you play Team-Up plants to boost this: Does boosting this also fulfill the purpose of your deck? If you use Team-Up plants to boost this, will it mess up your game later? If the answer is 'yes', save your Team-Up plant for later.
A common strategy with this is to play a Sunflower on the first turn, and if it is not destroyed, play this on the same lane as the Sunflower. (You can choose to play it either in front of or behind the Sunflower, depending on which plant you think needs to survive longer.) A great follow-up, assuming your Sunflower stayed alive, would be to plant a Metal Petal, which can be earned via Solar Flare's Hero Quest, to get 6 sun on the fourth turn, giving you a major advantage.
Because it is in the nut tribe, Smackadamia and Mirror-Nut can affect it. However, only Wall-Knight can primarily use this combo. Wall-Knight can also play it behind bulky plants like Pea-Nut to create a simple, yet effective way of absorbing a lot of damage while doing a lot of damage as well.
If Mixed Nuts is not boosted, use Rolling Stone. If it is boosted, use Rocket Science. Squirrel Herder and Deadly zombies work well against this too. Strikethrough zombies also help, although most zombies with said trait cannot destroy it in one attack and are going to be destroyed themselves. If a Sunflower is played on the first turn, then there is a high chance Mixed Nuts will be played next, so removing any Sunflowers is also important. Tennis Champ and Bungee Plumber is one way to defeat this combo on turn 2, though using Tennis Champ will have to be used before the plant turn, so the plant hero can get rid of it easily. Another way is by using Squirrel Herder, and is a much more efficient way of doing so. Pied Piper can also reduce its stats and weaken it significantly if the plant hero does use it.
