    Fun fact: raw cashews are toxic.

      Probably why the roast them.

    • I think it's the same for almonds but don't quote me on that one

      But the "raw" ones sold are safe: https://www.delightedcooking.com/are-raw-cashews-really-pois...

      This is why we don’t eat strictly raw cashews. Even the “unroasted’ varieties are steamed to release urushiol from the nut and make it safe to eat. Certainly, those raw cashews sold as raw have been processed to remove urushiol, so there is no danger in consuming them.

      Sad fact: the shell surrounding the nuts is caustic and burns the hands of the workers if they do not use the proper protection. Indian, Vietnam and Ivory Coast are not known for best worker rights.

    Nothing better than gobbling ups salty nuts at midnight

      Nibble Nobby's nuts before Nobby nibbles yours.

      Ah, the 70s, early 80s.

        I only arrived here in the 90's and Nobby was well and truly nibbling nuts for most of that decade too.

      Deez nuts would have to be salty at midnight. Specially after work.

    I find there is such a vast difference in the quality and taste of cashews, not only between brands but even from the same shop

    • I agree! As a cashew connoisseur, I can confirm that no two nuts taste the same

      • no two nuts taste the same

    Past batches I've bought have been super salty and I love salt, but these were too much…. I had to rinse them off with water. Hopefully just the batches I got, but just letting everyone know.

      Same experience I had last time I bought these from Coles on sale.

    • +1

      No need to rinse..Just strain them to remove excess salt

      • +1

        And then keep the salt in a shaker, I put cashew salt on salads and things, yum!

  • is this coles online only , or can you get this deal instore aswell

    • Saw them in store today (Sydney)

    Last time I bought these, a few weeks ago, they were very poor quality. I won't be buying them again……you get what you pay for….

    • Agreed. W - 450 grade with better than 50% splits & pieces. You get what you pay for.

      • You get better quality and only slightly dearer buying from green grocers, I also bought from IGA, Drakes before when they are on sale and the quality is always value for money.

        • Yes the Drakes brand cashews are the best……very large Cashews and great quality. I buy when on special.

    A lot in the thread are saying too salty .
    Besides that they had a weird taste of some chemical or something .
    I'm definitely sticking to Nobbies and Planters .
    If they were free I wouldn't take them . Sorry I lied I sell in that case :)

    Bought a bag few weeks back, worst quality cashews ever bought, they are like the leftover from other merchants, a bit like the salmon rejected by John West :) ! They are mostly small size nuts and lots of broken pieces and if you smell them, they have a kind of acidic chemical smell, will never buy this again even half of the sale price !

    • Maybe you got a bad batch.

  • Go Aussie Aussie cashews

  • Rip off

    None available at my local in Sydney, and not in the official catalogue so no raincheck allowed. Based on the comments here, seems like I didn't miss much
