Substitute Blanched Almonds for Brazil Nuts please
A paltry 9% of the bag’s contents, at least the Walnuts were mostly whole, and quite fresh too. Cashews also faired a lot less in quantity, at a quarter of the other two 200g varieties from Tesco, but at least they were crunchy and fresh. Instead it was the Almonds that nearly hit the forty per cent mark, but I didn’t mind as they were tasty, and individually heavier as well (interesting). The mystery nut in this bag was a blanched version of the Almonds, which was much the same, just without the jacket, which was very dry, but accompanied by a suitable crunch, nothing special. This was the only one of the four mixed nuts range from Tesco that got Hazel nuts right, they were with a perfect crunch and had no bitter aftertaste, I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me. However, this old style baggy bag wasn’t to my liking as it took up too much space, and could not be resealed as with a dedicated seal, only the small adhesive which never does as good a job. Also, the use by date only gave me six months from purchase, or 50% less than the new bagged varieties - hopefully Tesco are getting round to fixing that problem. This was the best bag of nuts I had tried from Tesco’s own brand mixed nuts range, I just wish that they had of tossed out the dry and bland blanched Almonds for some Brazil nuts. Walnuts : 23g (x10½) = 9.2% Hazel : 69g (x78) = 27.6% Cashew : 26g (~x18) = 10.4% Almond : 95g (x87) = 38% Blanched Almonds : 39g (x33) = 15.6%
An easy way to get a good mix of nuts.
I do agree with the comment that the picture misrepresents the proportions of hazelnuts in this mix but I still enjoy it and regularly buy it.
watching a squirrel on our windowsill eating nuts
Feeding the squirrel in our garden and on our Window sills which is the closest we have been to wildlife in these lockdown days. However we have removed the cashews and almonds in the pack for our own snacks.
Too expensive and too many hazelnuts. Picture misleading.
These nuts? Got em.
Mixed bag of nuts but not mixed on quality. If I could vote these nuts for presidency I would never mind just out of 5 stars.
Good mixed nuts
Good mixed nuts.
Nowhere near as good as the original 200 gram
Nowhere near as good as the original 200 gram Tesco mixed nuts- far too many blanched almonds.
I buy these all year round to snack on which stops me eating other less healthy snacks
I buy the mixed nuts as a eat a few each day for health reasons + use some for cakes etc.. However, they have been of poor quality in recent months. I had decided not to buy them again until the quality & selection improved probably opting for the individually packed almonds/walnuts etc. but obviously more expensive. What are the almond shape white nuts?
Great value for money
Quantity and quality nuts for the cost is better value than H&B!
