About being fun to eat: Our Roasted Salted Pistachios are super plump and are completely free of dyes. They’re roasted to perfection and salted to give you an admittedly addictive snack experience. We can’t get enough of them and trust you feel the same way. Think of them as a snacker’s slam dunk! About their history: This nut, actually SEED, is a native of Central Asia, including present-day Iran and Afghanistan. Pistachio trees were introduced to California in the mid 1800’s as a garden tree. It was in the 1970’s when Pistachios were commercially grown in California. Today, the United States leads the world’s production of Pistachios, followed by Turkey, Iran, China and Syria. We’ve become so good at growing those seeds that we don’t need to import them anymore, so yay for the United States! What we’re proud of is that people with discerning palates have grown to love Pistachios so much that no funky dyes are requested. You can enjoy them with their gorgeous green meats and stout creamy-colored shells and be totally fine with it. We imagine you’re among those enlightened Pistachio fans so bend your arm around that basketball team jersey and give yourself a healthy pat on your back!
