“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Snacks „
I'm not a huge nut fan, but I love having cashews or peanuts in a tub in the kitchen as they make a great snack. Although I tend to stick to known brands for peanuts, such as KP, I've always bought Morrisons own make own cashews as they're great quality and seem to always be available in store.
These are sold in an orange & gold wrapper, with gold at the top and bottom and orange in a strip across the middle. There's an image of the tempting nuts on the bottom half, so you can't really go wrong with buying them, unless you pick up the 'jumbo' cashews by mistake (which are the same, just, unsurprisingly, jumbo-sized).
The packaging is fairly basic but the wrapper is quite strong because of the foil inside which keeps them fresh. They usually have a few months on the use-by date, but it's worth bearing this in mind as I've often bought a few bags to keep in the cupboard and forgotten they're in there!
As these are a supermarket own brand they can only be found in Morrisons, but I've come across them in each branch I've been in so they're not too hard to come by. They can usually be found in the crisp/savoury snack aisle, next to the other nuts and nibbles.
Each 100g bag contains 588 calories and 50.4g of fat, which equates to the whole bag. Whilst the bag isn't particularly big, there are a fair few cashews inside, most of which have already been split in half. Providing you don't eat them like crisps, they make a good snack which lasts well when kept in an air-tight container for freshness.
These cashews are 'lightly salted', so although most salt seems to settle at the bottom of the bag, you get a light dusting over most of them. I personally find they're not really very salty, but then that's probably being I'm a salt fiend and like it too much.
The taste is hard to describe, but they definitely meet my expectations. They're fresh, crunchy and reasonably hard when you bite into them, meaning they're neither rock hard or too soft. The taste is spot on and for just over £1, they're a reasonably good buy. In comparison to bigger-known brands, I would definitely opt for these; I can't fault them and have had no problems with them in terms of taste or texture.
Aside from the assumed health benefits of cashews, these make a tasty and crunchy snack that are ready to eat straight from the bag.
Yummy but moreishly addictive :)
