I'd say it's national, but depends on your store by how much it's reduced. If you look it up on hukd people have posted this a few weeks ago @ the price of 50p. In other stores it's 1.25, etc. Might be worth double checking the price in your local.
PS. Remember, the red packaging ones (Christmas ones).

​These are good fat, as are pistachio, avocado, etc.... What is bad is deep fried stuff, doughnuts, etc....

had bought them before Christmas when they were reduced to 50p at our local Asda....
good deal if you love cashew

I have never eaten the cashew, but it sounds very good. So I can be imagining what it would taste like, if you were to compare it to a nut I might have eaten what is it a bit like?

Many thanks being to you in advances

They are a slightly stronger tasting than a peanut yet with a softer texture. Almost creamy...almost. very moreish imo.

Many thanks to you, that sounds very nice, I thinks i might be liking the nut cashews

I just opened a bag of these and they are really creamy compared to other cashews I've tried. For whatever reason it reminds me of milkybar white chocolate dessert. So creamy.

​they not that sweet but abit of a funny taste they feel abut sweet and a bit salty at the same time maybe a cross between a almond walnut and pistachio. it's a got a good taste to it if u like.other nuts I would image u like it if that's the case.

ASDA nuts aren't as cool.

You can store nuts in the freezer. They don't turn rancid this way therefore lasts longer. Can also toast them in the oven prior to eating. 180 Celcius / gas mark 4 around 10-15 minutes, brings out the flavour more

cashew.......


......bless you.

Borat?

Yesterday I had 4 ounces of these and MyFitnessPal said they were 626 calories, through all my gym effort and calorie counting out of the window. I will definitely not be buying cashews again, heat added though.
Sorry, threw not through.

At least those 626 calories came from a healthy source - way better than eating a donut or something! This price is amazing, hope my local store has some.

Comparing the taste of different nuts is a bit like comparing apples and oranges. They're all different. I'd say creamy is the key word for cashews particularly if they are lightly roasted/salted.

Does anyone else find this describing of nut varieties abit odd? Lol X)

Why are cashews so much more expensive than peanuts?

boostii

cashew.............bless you.



I genuinly laughed at that.

Why are cashews so much more expensive than peanuts?



​er would u take a guess. mine is they are more difficult to cultivate or are less readily available then peanuts. peanuts or probably the cheapest buts available maybe the question should be why are peanuts cheaper than the rest of the nuts family such as almonds walnuts brazalin nuts etc.

Where do cashews come from?
The fruit pictured above is a cashew apple, hanging at the bottom of it is a cashew nut. The nut is, botanically, the seed of the fruit and each apple will only produce one. Each nut has to be manually collected from each fruit and then set to dry.


However, once dried, much care has to be taken in shelling the seeds. Stored in a honeycomb structure between the soft outer shell and the hard nut there is a liquid called CNSL (cashew nutshell liquid) which contains anacardic acids which cause severe skin rashes. Therefore, before shelling the seeds have to be roasted, so that the toxins are destroyed. This must be done outside, as the process releases gases that can severely irritate the lungs, sometimes fatally.

The nuts are then opened up and graded. This labour-intensive process, coupled with a short supply, is why cashews are much more expensive that peanuts.
