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.
