Wonderful Pistachio Review and Contest!  

Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you
feel like a Pistachio. A nut in a category all by themselves.
When I was young my Grandmother was a vicious employer
this time of year. Starting the end of November she would put my
Grandfather and I to work with her helping with Homemade
Candies and Cookies and all sorts of other Holiday treats. Though
it wasn't as bad as what she put us through the first few weeks
of September for winter canning or the July Jams and Jelly's, it
was still a lot of hard work. There were two perks to this job
though. We could sample what we made and every year around
the Holidays my Grandfather would bring home a huge
bag of Pistachios! To this day they are my favorite! When I was
young we had the red ones and half of the fun eating them
was walking away with red tipped fingers. As I grew the quaintness
of the red fingers grew thin but the love for Pistachios grew
Since those days I have found Pistachios in so many other
things including pudding, ice cream and recently I found a long
over due can of mixed nuts that contained them. What took them
so long I will never know! Everyone knows the order of Nuts goes;

Them other ones!
They should have been the first nut tossed in any blend! Also
when I was little most nuts were a Holiday or party food and it
wasn't until the last 10 years or so when people realized not
only are they one of the most tasty treats out there they are
also good for you! Not only are nuts high in Fiber and Antioxidants,
they are also good for your heart. That's right, eating nuts 2 or
more times a week can lower your chance of having heart
failure or heart disease. I can't think of a better reason to go
a little "Nuts!" Other studies are showing that eating nuts
lowers your chance of having a stroke, of developing type 2
diabetes, or developing dementia, or advanced macular
degeneration and gallstones. Remind me to rearrange
my shopping list for Mom lied. Sometimes foods that
are good for you do taste good! I am very sure if my                                              

Grandfather knew all this information he would have put
down the bottle of Cod Liver Oil and grabbed some more
Pistachios. They also have an appetite suppressing compound
called oleoylethanolamide that was recently discovered in
monounsaturated FAT (of all places!). Fifty-five percent of
the fat in pistachios is monounsaturated fat. Is there a better
reason to eat them then that? Oh, yeah, they taste incredible!
Why the sudden kick on Pistachios?
Well, its not really sudden for just about 80 percent
of the time I am typing to you guys I have at least one
can of nuts by the computer. ( if anyone knows how to get
nuts shells and fragments out of a keyboard let me know!)
I also have never had the chance to review them before.
Remember Fiji Water? Remember how I told you the person
I spoke to there was super nice and I was so very impressed
with her and the Company? Well, same company, same
person, still impressed. When I was speaking to her about
the water she told me they also had a Pistachio Company
called Wonderful Pistachios and would I be interested in
reviewing them as well. Okay Michelle, calm your self.
Here was a person asking me if I wanted to try two of my
favorite items and she would send them to me. I wouldn't even
have to leave my house. How do you answer that question?
She said she would send me some samples and this time
she even said she would send me a case but this was before
I received the water and the last time I had a person ask me to
review a food item and said they were sending a case it turned
out to be those bite sized bags they have by the cash registers.
It was still Pistachios and I was still excited. When the water came
you guys know I was in shock but then today UPS brought me a case
of Pistachios and when she said case she meant case! I received
a case of one pound bags of Pistachios! A whole case! I just can
not get over how cool this company is. Fiji and Wonderful Pistachios!
Again, I can't say enough nice things about them. Not only did
they put me at ease and were super friendly and approachable
when I spoke with them and when they say sample they mean it.
There is no doubt that if Wonderful Pistachios hires the same
caliber of people in other departments as they do the
marketing that this company will go far. Great service has been
missing for years and they are making a comeback starting here
with these two!
Now I told you they were cool and too make it official Wonderful
Pistachios is going to give one of my readers a case of Pistachios
too! You will get 20 one pound bags of these fabulous nuts.
And let me tell you they are Delicious! I have been sitting here
trying not to eat the whole bag. It is taking everything I have!
