The Taste of the Tropics, we all love these Macadamia Nuts!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I used to dislike macadamia nuts until I tried these--These are absolutely amazing. They taste nothing like the macadamia nuts you buy at the supermarket. These have a velvety outer texture, some saltiness when you bite in, and then a buttery center that turns creamy in your mouth. They should put a picture of these next to the word decadence in the dictionary.
Costco does sell them, just not all the Costco's. I'm in San Diego and have bought some in one location, then it disappears only to reappear in another location. They used to be $13 but now are $16 in the store (for those members who might be curious). Just bought a few 2 days ago in the store. Still a good deal on this site when you take into account shipping costs for the sellers which they are only passing on to you in the form of a higher price. Still, they aren't making but a few bucks on these after Amazon's 15% commission. The nuts are great but VERY salty. A trick to get rid of some salt, put them in a colander with a lot of holes and shake the nuts. You can also rinse them, but I found they absorb a lot of the water even if you let them sit out to dry. Others have recommmended washing them and then putting them in the oven for a few minutes. Worth the effort though. I like salt but holy cow these are consistently over the line.
These macadamia nuts are the ones I remember from my childhood. They are dry roasted - not at all oily. They have a silky and velvety crunch that is unlike any other food I can think of. The taste is outstanding - toasted but not burnt, and salty but not in an overpowering way.
The first macadamia nuts I ever ate were on an airplane. They came in a little pyramid shaped container and they were the best things I had ever eaten. These nuts taste just like those from 45 years ago.
