Good pistachios, but one bug in the product
on August 2, 2012
For the most part, these are what you'd want in pistachios. They arrive fresh and tasty, for a little lower price than the local store.
I'd estimate about 5-10% of the nuts are not opened, and get trashed. Another 10% get opened with some fingernail prying and pulling pretty hard.
They're pretty salty, which isn't ideal, but right where I'd expect a normal salted pistachio, great for some who like salty and too much for others.
However, there's one bug in the product - literally. I think two of the last three bage had one nut each where the nut had a bug - work, whatever it was - inside the shell.
If you're on the couch munching watching tv, not looking at the nuts you open and eat, it'd be very easy to have eaten it. It's disgusting.
I contacted the manufacturer, and they explained 'they try but it's not practical to avoid'. They're not the only brand - my last bag (and I mean last bag, over a year ago, didn't buy after) had the same thing.
