Pistachios were very tasty but expensive
ProsTaste, nice levels of salt

Turkish Pistachio Nuts are the Best
I've loved these imported pistachios over 25 years when I first discovered them. Although I was used to the red dyed variety, Turkish pistichios are a bit smaller and natural without coloring added. The taste is distinct unlike the California variety. Although Iranian pistachios are known world wide as the absolute best, Turkish are the next best thing you can buy as Iranian pistachios are not legal to import to this country. The price has jumped since my last order. I will still buy them and savor every bite. If you never tried them, you owe it to your taste buds.
ProsThe flavor is unique. Turkish are the only pistachios I will buy. I'm hooked.
ConsThe price went up quite a bit since my last order. It's most likely a supply and demand issue. Hopefully in the future there will be a less costly source.

Turkish Antep Pistachios
Best I've had in a while. I order from everywhere on the net; my next order will be these.

Small packages, great...5 lb not so much
Originally I ordered 1 lb packages of this and loved the pistachios. So, I ordered 2 more 1-lb packages and a 5 lb package (to share with family on a trip)...the 5 lb has quite a few bad pistachios, I would say that 25 % are not opened at all or contain nuts that are bad, I mean bad to the point that they are not edible. Many times you can't get the nut out of the shell even if it is cracked a bit. So, IF I buy again, I will only buy small packages.
ProsNormally these are excellent, flavorful and delicious, I might recomment but with the bad things to consider because it is an expensive purchase and a shame when 25% are inedible for one reason or another.
ConsToo many bad nuts and too many that can't open or that only open partially and you can't get the nut out.

Tastiest pistachios around. Even have a great fantastic aroma. These nuts truly are a treat. None better. Superior's price is excellent and the shipping very reasonable. It is my first order with Superior and I will be back.

Love the Turkish pistachios!
These are true Turkish pistachios and have the great, unique flavor that distinguishes them from the more bland California pistachios. Excellent!

Turkish Antep Pistachios
Arrived before I had a chance to phone my daughter that they were coming, her husband loves these Pistachios. I always get them for him for Xmas, and this year he received it as a gift for his birthday. He is more than pleased as a matter of fact he said these were the best tasking ones he has ever got.
ProsThe taste is superb.

Pistachios packed with taste
After eating these, I can never go back to California pistachios. Though a smaller nut, they a packed with taste and are most like the pistachios I ate as a child. (They were from Iran, but since the Iranian Revolution, aren't available in the US.)

Although I usually purchase my pistachios from Nuts on the Net, I've been disappointed with their quality of late. I called to complain and they said I could send them back. I told them that they need a quality assurance program so the nuts will be good. So, you are about $5 more but there are far fewer non edible nuts in your bag.
ProsMost of the nuts were tasty and good
ConsThe cost is higher than competitors as they provide free shipping

Turkish Postachio Nuts
I've paid $20 more for the same item at another popular site for this particular nut and was far more satisfied with this purchase. Fresh, delicious and, to my mind, much more earthier and funky than the California version.
ConsI was completely satisfied.

The Turkish Antep variety is superior compared to other pistachios. Still, the California nuts are great tasting too. Glad for the oportunity to try something new. I found that at NUTS IN BULK. I will visit them again with more purchases.
ProsPistachios happen to be a favorite of mine!

Turkish Pistachios are great but....
I love these Pistachios. They are habit forming. They are really expensive and the shipping costs seem higher than they should be. I usually buy a 5lb bag. I would suggest USPS priority mail would be cheaper.

Turkish Antep Pistachios
There should be a warning on these nuts! They are actually "too" good. I know that they're healthy so I'm allowing myself to indulge...! I discovered them at a local Middle Eastern store - I only knew the pistachios from California. I liked them also, but the Turkish are so much better. The only downside is that they are pretty expensive by the time you pay shipping (I'm all the way down in Texas). I have to learn to eat them more sparingly, I guess. I don't think you'll be disappointed in these fantastic pistachios!
ProsEverything from taste to nutritional value.

I love these Turkish nuts. Other companies I have ordered from put too much salt on them. Nuts in Bulk has 'real' lightly salted nuts. There are fresh and taste good. I highly recommend them to others. Once you have these you will never go back to the 'so called' Califorina pistachios"!

The absolute best pistachios in the U.S.
The only better pistachios I have ever had are the ones you get in Lebanon from Persian or Aleppo Pistachios and roasted the Lebanese way. Persian pistcahios that are not seasoned perfectly are certainly no better than the turkish ones.
These anteps from this place are fresh, roasted perfectly for a perfect crunch, salted perfectly and seasoned perfectly. They are consistently good every time I order them. I tried to ordered them cheaper from a Lebanese place in the U.S., the quality was fresh and excellent but they were almost unsalted which made the pistachios lose all their value.
This is the place to get the most decent Turkish Pistachios in the U.S.
Consi was going to whine about the price and the newly jacked up shipping price. BUT, having seen so many oither whiners made me come to my senses.
This is a GOOD place, Turkish pistachios are no longer $3.99 a lb as they used to be 20 years ago for some reason... It is good to support them so that we know that with few clicks of the mouth, we get 5 lbs of great Turkish pistchios deliviered to your door.

I actually don't eat pistachios but buy them for a friend of mine who thinks they are the best thing on the planet!!! He's always looking forward to the next special occasion because he knows I going to give him his favorite pistachios.

Pefect In Every Sense
This is my second purchase of Antep pistachio nuts from Superior Nut Store as I've been obtaining my Antep nuts from another company for over 40 years. But because of Superior Nut Store's competitive quality, better pricing and prompt shipping, I intend to continue purchasing my Antep pistachio nuts from Superior Nut Store. I usually buy either the 5 pound or 10 pound quantity a few times each year - I keep them in a freezer and remove a small portion to last a week or so which keeps the remaining nuts as fresh as when first bought.
ProsLess salty - I found the nuts less salty than the other company's nuts I've been purchasing. At first I didn't like the less salt, but once you get accustomed to less salt, the nuts are just as tasty and much healthier without the added salt.
ConsAbsolutely no dislikes.

Glad I found them !
I remember the fun and availability for pistachio nuts of this type from my childhood and teen years. I have been looking for nuts of this quality and origin locally for some time now , and it has become more and more difficult to find at even specialty brick and mortar stores where I live and shop ( Northwest suburban Chicaog) .
This is a great product and I plan to re-order soon . I believe they will also make great Christmas gifts .
Thanks for doing such a great job ! .
2) Fair Price
3) Little waste
Conswould be nice to have more shipper choices such as Fed Ex/ USPS rather than only UPS.

ConsNow I'm addicted to them and will have to buy more!
February 28, 2011
I buy them for my boyfriend who absolutely loves them he finished them up yesterday he is already waiting for his next time.... I can only afford them for special occasions.... But they are well worth the money and he truely enjoys them as do I.... The taste is so buttery and hard to stop eating them out of a 5lb bag only about 10 were hard to open... I highly recommend this product if you like pistachios you are going to love the turkish ones...
ProsThe quality and the delivery is exceptional...
ConsA bit expensive when you include shipping on top of the price....

Great Flavor - Hard To Open
The Turkish Pistachios have a good taste. They are silky and almost melt in your mouth.
I have to use a nut cracker to open the shell. You have to gauge how much pressure to use or you'll crush the nut. Of course, that distracts from the enjoyment of eating them. A better roasting process might help open the shells more.
ProsThey are silky and almost melt in your mouth.
ConsI have to use a nut cracker to open the shell.

Antep pistachios review - Feb 2011
Love these pistachios. Promptly delivered. Well packaged. Fresh and tasty. This order was different in that the pistachios were less salty than in previous orders. That's too bad - although these are our favorite pistachios, would have preferred a bit more on the salty side.
ProsQuality product, very few "unopened" pistachios
ConsWhy is the salt content so much lower than previously - is this new? Would prefer a bit more on the salty side.

These pistachios were 1st class, Very, very few were closed. They tasted incredible, just like a pistachio should taste not like the less flavored CA ones. Shipping is lightening fast and I have no idea how they do it? Like little nut elves who fly around and deliver nuts the very next day.

One ounce of pistachios (about 49 kernels) is an excellent source critical vitamins and minerals, particularly copper, manganese, vitamin B6, thiamin, and phosphorus. Like all nuts, pistachios are rich in fiber, are a great source of protein, are cholesterol-free, and are chock full of monounsaturated fats. However, unlike other nuts pistachios contain significant amounts of the carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin. Carotenoids are a special type of antioxidant linked to color, and associated with reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration, one of the most common causes of irreversible blindness in older adults.
