Roasted and Salted Cashews 800g $10 @ Coles, Roasted and Unsalted 750g $10 @ Woolworths


Unusually, both Coles AND Woolies have cashews on sale at the same time.

Coles are slightly cheaper, price equivalent to $12.50/kg, but Coles only have salted cashews. Woolworths have both unsalted and salted on sale, same price, but 750g instead of 800g.

Woolworths Salted: https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/172660

Neither of these prices are as cheap as last time, but I reckon those were unicorn events.

Comparing the cashews from both stores, I find the Coles cashews to be better cleaned, the Woolies ones often have traces of husk still attached.

I can confirm that the Coles offer works in-store, I just went to my local Coles and purchased some.

Be careful not to accidentally pick up bags of mixed peanuts and cashews, which are usually right beside the cashews, and often get mixed in with the cashews.

    Don't take these to school kids.

    • Because of the allergen warning?

        You may be unaware, but the latest expert medical advice, which is the opposite to the previous advice, is that the best way to avoid kids getting nut allergies is to NOT delay giving them to them.

        Of course if you followed the experts previous advice, and your child already has a nut or other allergy because of that, perhaps you shouldn't give them nuts.

        • Thanks for the link, that looks like good information.

          I did a little bit of searching, and found that (in QLD) school principals "may request that parents and staff (across the whole or part of their school) support the school’s efforts to reduce identified allergens by asking parents not to send certain products to school in lunch boxes, and to talk to their children about not sharing their food."

          On thinking about it, I think giving any type of nuts to kids as part of their school lunch, is a bad idea. Kids often move about while eating lunch, and nuts have a much higher choking potential than, say, sandwiches.

            @Russ: We used to have hard candy/bubble gum in our mouth and run around when we were kids. Never heard of anyone choking from it.

              @John Doh: I used to run around the house with a pickle in my mouth. Misbehavin'

        • That is a good one! Didnt know about this.

  • The roasted and salted are also 750g, not 800g, at least in Townsville Queensland.

    • At Coles or Woolies?

  • I find these too oily and roast raw cashews instead.
