Floridian Macadamia Nuts from $79.00
Few things in life are more satisfying than eating Macadamia nuts, yes, we said it! We are Macadamiaoholics. We love them so much that we wanted to bring them to delight our Tropifruiters. Why you may wonder?For starters, we love the soft crunchy texture and their buttery flavor. They are just delicious and have good fats to boot. That’s why they are even approved by the Keto nuts! (Pun intended!) As you can see in the picture, these macadamias have a shell so we recommend you roast them to make the shell brittle and easy to break. This way you get the coveted, mind-numbing flavor, if not, they taste more like raw coconuts which are not bad, but we want you to have the full experience.Macadamias are so delicious that they are almost in a category of their own and they are actually more expensive than pine nuts, chestnuts, and of course, almonds. Why are Macadamia nuts so expensive? Let’s start with the fact that Mother Nature insists on having Macadamia trees start producing nuts after about 7 to 10 years. As you can imagine, in an iPhone-fueled modern world, it’s hard to wait 7 seconds for something, let alone 7 years so they require a lot of planning, expense, upkeep, and just plain resolve. That’s why when farmers finally get their crops to produce and harvest them by hand, don’t blame them when they put their pinky in the corner of their mouth and are like, I want “One Miiiilliiiiion Dollars”. Just kidding, they want a heck of a lot more, but I digress. People want more macadamias than are actually available, so the price keeps going up. You know, the old supply and demand.That’s why, if you haven’t tried these beautiful shelled macadamias, you totally should and of course, let us know when you are totally blown away and we’ll be like… we told you so.Get your hands on these delicious Floridian Macadamia nuts today.
