Best price for raw macadamia nuts

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created February 19, 2013 at 5:58 PM

I love macadamias (prefer raw and unsalted) but they an get very spendy in the stores. Looking online it appears a 5 lb. purchase will fetch a good price but shipping drives the cost back up.

Do you mind sharing your favorite online site for the most affordable raw macadamias?

I order nut products from Amazon all of the time and have NEVER had a bad order.

honestly I find that hard to believe. They sell so many items that could be negatively impacted by extreme hot or cold I can't believe that they have no heating or cooling system.

Anyway, I'll often order supplements and other sensitive products from iHerb even though they're sometimes a little more expensive. They have a climate-controlled warehouse that never gets above 74F, and they have a big fridge for even more perishable stuff.

I worry about ordering food from Amazon sometimes. They may have changed things, but as I recall, (most of?) their warehouses are not climate-controlled. So in the summer, they get incredibly hot. I wouldn't want to eat anything that could spoil easily/go rancid that's been sitting in a hot warehouse for who knows how long. I love Amazon otherwise- I don't know how I'd live without them. But the warehouse thing concerns me. If someone knows otherwise about their warehouse conditions, please correct me because I don't want to spread bad info.

They can probably be found for less, but their shipping is dirt cheap!

If you want to keep cost down you may want to not order online just because shipping is so much. If you have a Trader Joe's near you, you can get a 10 oz. bag of them for about $8!!! That is way cheaper than anywhere else I have seen them.

Just make sure that absolutely NO SMOKING is ever allowed around any food items, since toxic tobacco smoke contains many carcinogens and poisons! Help make everything smoke free, as it should be!

Not sure where you're looking but if you do Amazon Prime membership ($80 annual) you get 2 day free shipping on a lot of items. I ordered two 20 KG kettlebells from them in the Fall and they couldn't get them to me in 2 days (took them three) but the shipping was free. Other websites were charging 30-50 bucks to ship in 7-10 days. I'm guessing if you can find what you want they could handle a bag of nuts NP with the free shipping.
