My father loved to eat nuts. He was one of those people who was always reading about what kinds of foods are healthy for you, and what foods are not healthy for you, and he insisted that nuts were “good food.” I used to tease him all of the time that “you are what you eat” and I would give him a can of nuts for his birthday, Christmas, and Father’s Day. Of course I would usually give him something else too, but he loved cashews and macadamia nuts the best.
Once my father passed away, it seems as if the only time that I would buy nuts would be for stocking stuffers for my kids and my hubby. My hubby loved mixed nuts, and of course macadamias, and my kids were always partial to macadamias as well. Have you ever priced macadamia nuts in the retail stores? They are crazy expensive! So when I found out about the www.nutsite.com website, and about their wholesale prices, I went to their little search field and typed in “macadamia nuts.”
Within seconds I was directed to a page where I was able to pick from raw macadamias in the shell, raw diced macadamias, raw shelled macadamias, and roasted and salted macadamias. If I recall correctly, I’ve only eaten raw macadamias one time, and they were so bland that I really did not see how and why these little nuts would rate being so coveted, and so expensive. That was on my trip to Hawaii, back around 1984, where we found places that sold macadamia nuts at a real disount.
Once I popped the roasted and salted macadamia nut into my mouth, though, I was hooked. Macadamia nuts are my all time favorite nut too. So now that I have found a place where I can buy a full pound of them for only twelve dollars, I can tell that I am going to be enjoying them a lot more often.
