Mixed Nuts are a basic common plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Solar class. They cost 3 to play, and have 2/2. They do not have any traits, and their ability gives them +2/+2 when they are played on a lane with a Team-Up plant already on it.
They are 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 themselves, Mixed Nuts are 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 powerful 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 playing a Sunflower on the first turn, and if she is not destroyed, play this on the same lane as the Sunflower. (You can choose to play them 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 they are in the nut tribe, Smackadamia and Mirror-Nut can affect them. However, only Wall-Knight can primarily use this combo. Wall-Knight can also play them 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 are not boosted, use Rolling Stone. If they are 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 them 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 counter 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 her easily. Another way is by using Squirrel Herder, and is a much more efficient way of doing so. Pied Piper can also reduce Mixed Nuts' stats and weaken them significantly if the plant hero does use the Sunflower-Mixed Nuts combo.
