Planters Pistachios review and a Giveaway





When you think of nuts you usually think of Planters they are the alpha nut in the nut world and with good reason they produce some fine products and we were lucky enough to sample a few of those products. We received a few different flavors of pistachios and a bag of pistachio blend nuts.


·         Planters Sea Salt and Black Pepper In-Shell Pistachios: The combination of sea salt and black pepper enhances the flavor of the dry roasted pistachios

·         Planters Dry Roasted Pistachios: Dry-roasted in-shell pistachios

·         Planters Pistachio Blend: includes pistachios, peanuts, almonds and cashews

Pistachios never seem to last long in our house, I love them my husband loves them and our daughter loves them. I never get tired of watching my daughter crack open the pistachios it’s funny to watch her little fingers pry the shell apart. It’s even funnier to watch her try any pry open a really tight pistachio she tries and tries until she finally caves and asks for help. Like I said we received a few different kinds of pistachios they were sea salt and black pepper dry roasted pistachios, dry roasted pistachios and a pistachio blend that has pistachios, peanuts, almonds and cashews in it. 
The only issue we have is that you can’t just have one or two nuts; you want to consume the whole bag in one sitting but you have to share and we’ve been fighting over the bags since we received them because none of us want to share! I specifically chose the sea salt black pepper for my husband because he loves anything with pepper on it and I tried one thinking it would be too overbearing for me and I was very pleased to find out that salt and pepper enhance the natural flavor of the nut and don’t take away from it. Pepper can be overbearing at times and this isn’t the case here. 
Pistachios make for a great snack, my daughters school requested that we send snacks with our children every day and what did my daughter want as a snack? Nuts! She’s been bringing a bag of pistachio blend with her for the past week and has enjoyed her snack immensely. And I don’t have to worry about it being bad for her since nuts are a great healthy snack option. It doesn’t  get any better than Planters, from quality to selection to taste there is a reason why they’ve been around forever and still remain the alpha nut.


So if you are looking for a great snack idea, look no further than Planters nuts, they are nutritious and taste great, my family loves them and I am sure your family will love them too.
