February 3rd—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
We sell truckloads of almonds at Trader Joe's, and the best sellers, by far, 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. (California, by the way, provides nearly 100% of the commercial supply of almonds in the United States.) 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 Trader Joe's 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 $5.99 a pound. You could say we're nuts. Or you could say that's a value with no equal. Indeed.
