The Surprisingly Inexpensive and Healthful Snack: Pecans in Bulk
Snacking is great for bridging between meals. But the art of snacking is tricky. You want to juggle convenience, flavor, variety, and cost, all while choosing a truly healthful food that boosts your physical and mental well-being. Savory roasted pecans are just what you need.
Pecans in Bulk Save Money
Known for their buttery flavor and gentle crunch, pecans are a nutrient-rich and convenient snack. Our 21-ounce Pantry Packs are a cost-saving choice and come in many lightly seasoned savory flavors, so you always have a variety to choose from. Even if you live alone or have a small family, Pecan Pantry Packs are a sensible bulk purchase.
To keep them fresh tasting, always keep the pecans in the airtight container and store them in a cool pantry or cupboard. The recommended daily serving is one ounce, so a Pantry Pack will last you three weeks. However, if you need to keep the pecans longer, store them in the refrigerator, where they’ll stay fresh for up to 10 months.
