View Full Version : what are non-pareil almonds?
01-19-2008, 09:34 PM
I'm putting together an order for my food coop, and it has to be in tonight. I'm looking at the almonds, and some of them are "non-pareil". I've tried googling, and apparently it is desirable, but I can't figure out what the heck that means! Also, the "natural" almonds, both non-pareil, and california, are about half the price of the organic - safe or no? Thanks in advance!

non pareil is a type of almond, like a flavor i guess you could say, or actually a variety would be a better description. just like their are different types of apples. non pareil is just the most common from what i've understood. almonds-from-california.com has a FAQ question page and it will better explain the differences. hope this helps

Oh - I was thinking it meant is "wasn't" pareil, whatever that meant, LOL!

I had the same question when I first saw this...
Nonpareil is French for "having no equal."
These almonds really don't have an equal; I love them :) .
Have a wonderful day :D .
