Take a walk through our nuts and dried fruit section and you’ll no doubt notice the amount of space devoted to almonds. You may have surmised by this large space (by TJs standards, anyway) that we sell a whole lot of almonds. You’d be right. You see, at Trader Joe’s, all of our products have to earn their space on our shelves, and almonds certainly do that – and more!
By far our best selling almonds are our Raw California Almonds. These are Supreme grade Nonpareil almonds, the highest-quality almonds grown in California and the variety for which the Golden State is famous. They’re crunchy and flavorful, and about as versatile as nuts can get. Nonpareil is a French word that translates in English to “no equal.” We concur that these particular almonds have “no equal.”
Enjoy Raw California Almonds as a snack, folded into yogurt, baked into cakes or cookies or combined with other nuts and dried fruits for a trail mix with your personality. They’re delicious, healthful and a great deal at our everyday price of $4.49 a pound. You could say we’re nuts. Or you could say that’s a value with no equal. Indeed.
