If there’s something besides football that Tom Brady excels in, the food business might be it.

In May, the Patriots quarterback released a $200 cookbook through his sports performance company, TB12. Despite the price tag, the book sold out in minutes.

Now there’s another hot item on the market for which fans are going crazy: nuts.

TB12 on Monday tweeted a photo of its latest product, “TB12 Snacks” — a box of raw, vegan, organic, gluten- and dairy-free nuts. For $50, you get two of each flavor in a 12-count variety pack.

“Amazon Crunch: A combination of the best the rainforest has to offer in a tasty, easy-to-eat, nutrient-packed crunch. (1.4 oz each.)

“Superfood Energy Squares: A delicious, healthy, energy-sustaining square, packed with nutrient-dense superfoods. A great pre- & post-workout snack. (1.75 oz each.)

If you’re trying to get your hands on these nuts, unfortunately, they are already sold out.
