Certified Organic Raw Walnuts
Threw in trash
I purchased NOW organic walnuts, had them in my closet and forgot when I bought them (my fault) Then I decided to look for the best by date and there wasn't any. The mfg.. left it off. The walnuts looked rancid. I called NOW, and did get good info from their quality control dept that these need to be refridgerated. All the rep. said was he would throw them out - no offer of replacement. I know Swanson is fabulous but I figured it was my fault for not knowing when I bought them. I now look carefully for expiration dates. I threw these away and wasted the $8.99. NOW's fault for not having the expiration date printed on the bag.

It is nice to have these delivered right to my door. I used to drive 60 miles round trip to buy them and they were more expensive. So glad Swanson carries these and shipping is so fast.

NOPE NOT NOW
As a big fan of both raw Walnuts as a snack, and also NOW Foods as a company, I did not hesitate to order these Organic Raw Walnuts.
I have been eating and thoroughly enjoying the Swanson Brand Organic Raw Walnuts, but they only come in a 5 ounce package, so for convenience sake I perused Swanson's website for Organic Walnuts in a larger size. This is the only one I found, and I figured 12 ounces would last a while longer than a 5 ounce package, and they were put out by NOW Foods, so I ordered these.
Big disappointment!! These are only barely okay. I really didn't like the taste very much, and I considered tossing them out. Then I poured a lot of Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt into the bag and shook it up. I figured there was nothing to lose. If I still didn't like them, I'd go ahead and chuck them in the trash. But lo-and-behold, they turned out okay with a thorough coating of Himalayan Crystal Salt all over them. Not great, but edible.
I won't order these again. I'll just keep ordering the Swanson Brand Organic Walnuts in that smallish 5 ounce size, and maybe get 2 or 3 bags at a time. They are wonderful just the way they are, with nothing added. Really great!!
HOWEVER, since these are conveniently in a larger bag and also less expensive, if you do not simply eat your walnuts right out of the bag as a snack like I do, but you chop them up to use in baking, then these might work out okay for you. I don't bake, so I couldn't tell you for sure. They weren't rancid or bad tasting in that way. And if cooked and mixed in with lots of other sweet and yummy stuff, they might do the trick.

I soak and dry raw nuts, usually buying from Trader Joe's. The quality of this brand of nuts is shockingly bad. When I processed these, the soaked water was WAY WAY darker and murkier than other walnuts I've purchased, and the nuts just taste bad. Other walnuts have a nice sweet taste when processed this way. Not these.

These are very tasty whole nuts. Not broken pieces. Very good. I will buy again.

I bought these to get around fact that all commercially available shelled walnuts are processed with same facility that also does peanuts. This product was stale, even though not beyond expiration date. Though it might be OK for baking (I don't bake). Disappointing as a snack.

I was a little disappointed, the walnuts were a little stale, but did ok after "airing" out each packet. There were a number of shrunken walnut halves that had to be thrown out, mabe 3 walnuts per 8 oz.

Organic raw walnuts are of great quality. All of the walnuts are great tasting. Great on salads, in cereal, yogurts, etc.

These were a good price, arrived in good condition. I would recommend them. I am continually checking prices on things before I shop, so I am pleased that Swanson has good prices. Be sure you soak these nuts 4 hours before eating to release the enzyme inhibitor (then dehydrate, unless you are planning to use them in a recipe right away). When soaking, change the water several times. Your digestive system will thank you for it.

It tests so.............good!
I brought it to my bible study group and everybody loved it so much and all agreed it's the best testing organic walnut ever. We will continue buying it but just wishing it can be cheaper!
