  1. ok… now i’mcurious and i hope someone can help me out here and answer my question.

    Is almond THE nut in the US? (right after or even before peanuts?)
    Why am I asking? Here in you can of course get any nut you want (chocolate coated, salted or sugarroasted… and so on) But when it comes down to our normal range of “sweet” and savory nuts in supermarkets and grocery stores it’s quite limited… meaning: it’s somehow just peanuts and sometimes cashew. It’s pretty hard to find almonds (except for sugarroasted almonds wich you can find on any fair).

    In the US on the other side it seems there is no problem to find almonds. M&M has them in their normal product range and with blue diamond almonds you even have a whole brand just for almonds. ^^
    So: is it just me or is almond as popular as peanut? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. this is my opinion and I have no facts to back it up, but I think the almond is as popular as the peanut here in the US. I’m sure peanuts have taken a hit in popularity because of peanut allergies, and almonds have seen a rise in popularity thanks to their promoted health benefits and its use for non-dairy products.

      1. Hey Marvo!
        Thanks for your reply! ๐Ÿ™‚

        The whole peanut allergies theroy makes a lot of sense, although i’m still confused why there is this rise in popularity in the US and not here in Germany. ^^
        But i just guess we are a little slow on that part, since almond and coconut diary products like milk are appearing more and more on the shelves ^^

      2. In my opinion, what they call a tree nut allergy and peanut allergy go hand in hand. If you have one, you have the other.

  2. 505 Southwestern Mexiwraps (Bean & Cheese, Beef & Cheddar, and Spicy Chicken)….although they are tasty…the texture and size were pitiful. Walmart had these on sale so I bought all 3 flavors…figuring between my Son and I they would be eaten. When I opened the box and got 2 out…I was like ??? They are half the size I expected them to be…heated them in microwave and tasty as they were….the texture of the insides would stop me from buying them again…even the cheese was sponge like….nope nope nope LOL
