Planters Pistachios Review

I just professed my love for Planters peanut butter and now I have been sent some more Planters products.  I was sent 3 bags of their new pistachio blends and a bag of their almonds.  I love nuts as a snack because they are filling, quick to eat, contain dietary fibers, and heart healthy fats.

Here is a descriptions of the new Planters products: 

·         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 and Salted Almonds: All-natural, dry roasted wholesome California almonds
·         Planters Dry Roasted Pistachios: Dry-roasted in-shell pistachios
·         Planters Pistachio Blend: includes pistachios, peanuts, almonds and cashews
My husband and I opened a bag of the pistachio blend one night for a snack.  It contains pistachios, peanuts, almonds and cashews.  The pistachios were definitely the tastiest part. They had a nice roasted flavor and were lightly salted.  The almonds were my second favorite which were toasted. I have been eating raw almonds for awhile and realized how much better these roasted ones are!
Also, the salt and black pepper pistachios are very delicious! I had not had pepper on pistachios before but it was delicious. The roasted almonds are incredible with raisins, cranberries, or my personal favorite- dried cherries.  I will definitely be buying the new Planters pistachios again!

  1. I'm a fan of pistachios, but my FAVORITE nut has to be the dry roasted almonds :)

    My dad would probably love this product!
