Where do you get your Cashews

#1 Postby stcalico » Fri May 04, 2012 6:58 pm

I'm in BC, Canada, and I don't know if this is the only place that Cashews are like the price of diamonds, but I'm just wondering if there is a good place to get them in bulk. I get mine at Costco but even there is expensive. I've seen all these recipes that I'm dying to try out that have blended cashews but I cringe and clutch my purse tightly when the recipe asks for a cup or two of them.

On a side note, in my cashew quest I just read that a couple handfuls of cashews a day has the equivalent antidepressant effect of prescription dose of prozac. lol. How cool is that.
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

http://www.ranchovignola.com out of Armstrong BC.

You can only order wholesale in September, but you get a great deal and the cashews are super fresh!

Find them on Facebook too if you need. http://www.facebook.com/RanchoVignola

Funny that you say this; I'm in BC, too, and I bought some cashews from the bulk section at Save On Foods the other day... didn't check the price when I was loading up the bag... that was a bit of a shock at the check out! :shock: I don't normally buy them, I had no idea!

Cool I did not know about the Armstrong place. I will watch for their Harvest Events ... they hold them all in places I usually visit or drive though at least once a year. Don't know what $500 worth of nuts looks like (their minimum wholesale order), but pretty sure I can't eat that much... maybe I could start a business tho.. hahah. Or perhaps everybody I know is getting nuts for Christmas.

I did look at nuts.com. Still a bit pricey.. but I did learn that cashew pieces are cheaper than whole ones. Good to know.

Good luck with your job hunt Dylan. Hope you end up working somewhere you love!

cashews are too expensive here where i live, it's insane.100g cashews = 1000g oatmeal.
Altho yes they are very tasty but just not worth it!!
