If there is one thing in this world that I absolutely hate, I would have to say that being presented with the choice of a can of cashew nuts — in a retail setting — where the label says, “Cashews with halves and pieces” is among my top pet peeves!

This is kind of like saying, “Here is a can of what is left of some ordinarily delicious nuts after our processing equipment has finished sorting and mauling and deforming a wonderful product and instead of letting you have them for a bargain price, we are going to put them into a can with a fancy label and a high price and make you think you are getting something truly wonderful for your money.”

There ought to be a a law. I think this kind of crap is akin to some condom manufacturer labeling his product with the words, “Condoms Pre-Perforated With Pin Holes.”

I do not mind, however, paying the $9 per pound for “Select” whole Jumbo cashews in a container that is absolutely guaranteed not to contain any nut dust or broken pieces.

  1. I like (unsalted) cashews, but eat them rarely. I buy them in clear bags, where I can see all the nuts are as they should be. Over here, they are expensive, comparable to the best Salmon, in price by weight.
    Best wishes, Pete.

        1. Go to the “Contact” notice on the front page of my blog and give me your e-mail so that we can correspond privately and maybe I can find a solution about the cashew thing.
