    I just got one of those mixed nuts packages and was wondering if these nuts can still be germinated?

    give it a try..im sure some will..unless they have been cooked, then i think the chances are much diminished (o.O)

    The packaged nuts one buys in shops are usually heat-treated to kill pests (and very commonly rancid by the time one buys them), so the answer is very likely no. The only possible exception is if you buy them direct from a local grower at a farmers' market.
