No Salt on Pistachios a Travesty?
Well, I visited a Walmart today because I needed to buy some rechargeable batteries for my "little guy", Noah, and some earplugs, and my wife wanted to make some purchases as well. So we drove out there.
Well, naturally, we bought a few additional items as well, and for the first time in close to ten years, I broke down and bought a small bag of pistachios. I had formerly been outraged when they went up 100% and I knew there was no shortage of the things.
Well, for $4, there was a small bag of 7 ounces, and they tempted me. Well, I saw another brand, Selton Farms pistachios that looked identical and came in an 8 ounce bag. They asked for the same money, $4.
Can you guess which I decided I'd buy?
So I went to open the bag, which included the words on the wrapper, "Roasted No Salt".
Bum-Bum-Bummer, I thought!
But maybe they wouldn't be all that bad. And they also include on the wrapper an approval certification by the American Heart Association.
Well, guess what? While at first I missed the delicious salty flavor, I came to revel in the overwhelmingly delicious toasty flavor of the pistachios. Why not give these a try? They just might surprise you, and they offer the fringe benefit that they are closer to nature and are low sodium.
