Wonderful almonds
« on: October 16, 2020, 12:32:49 AM »
Are the wonderful brands almonds not sold anymore? I am only able to find wonderful pistachio.

Is there another safe brand of almonds I can purchase?

I canít find them either, and as far as I know, they are the only safe brand. Blue Diamond hasnít been safe for years.  :rant:

I ordered the Barney butter ones this morning. Valley Harvest Nut Co is another safe brand also in CA. So disappointed that Wonderful Nuts is not producing almonds anymore. Only pistachios🙁 it was nice to just buy them at the store.

GN, it would be helpful to qualify the comment about Blue Diamond safety. Theyíre totally safe if you are only allergic to peanuts but not to other tree nuts. DS eats them. I eat them. They are made on dedicated PF equipment. But there are two other tree nuts made on the same equipment.  I canít remember which ones.
Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

Yes, thatís true. Blue Diamond once produced almonds exclusively, but no more. DS is allergic to all tree nuts except for almonds.

Last time I looked at their website, I definitely found a nut thin with pecans.  Not sure if there are more tree nuts.
