Pistachio nuts usually come with their shells on (I often buy regular pistachios at Costco), but this pistachio nut mix has those yummy nuts without shells – ready to eat without any extra work 🙂 This tasty nut mix is called Pomegranate Pistachios and is also sold in Costco.
The manufacturer of Pomegranate Pistachios is Sahale Snacks. Most packages in Costco are huge, but this particular nut mix package is normal size – 15 oz. On the front of the package, the mix is described as “Nut Blend – Pomegranate Pistachios with Almnods, Cherries + Black Pepper”. From this description, I envisioned this pistachio mix being sweet, sour and spicy at the same time, and it turned out to be true. Sweet and sour pomegranate, slightly tart cherries and spicy black pepper give this pistachios a very unique and addictive flavor!
The description on the back of the package says: “Pomegranate Pistachios – exotic, yet accessible tastes combine in this blend inspired by some of our favorite Moroccan flavors. Pistachios, pomegranate and lemon with a hint of pepper complemented with cherries and almonds in an irresistible balance”. The Moroccan influence is quite an interesting fact!
