Archer Farms Roasted Jumbo Cashews

Failing to find the milk chocolate cashews I was looking for, I settled for these more traditional, slightly less exciting Roasted Jumbo Cashews as a snack from my local Target.

It's almost pointless to review something as banal as salted cashews, but there are a few things that set Target's offering above other brands. First, the packaging is uber-convenient. There's a little plastic bag inside the small box, sealed for freshness, but once you open it, you can dump the contents into the box for an ultra-simple, pour-exactly-the-number-of-nuts-you-want-into-your-hand-each-time kind of experience.

Also, Archer Farms uses sea salt instead of normal table salt. And while there's a raging debate about whether sea salt is really that much better for you, I'll generally take it over table salt, if only because it's slightly more natural and contains no aluminum.

The size and quality of each nut is on par with any major brand, and really, I have no major complaints...except, maybe, that these are not covered with chocolate. So there you have it: a tiny review for jumbo cashews.

I give this product 8 out of 10 stars.
