If you’re on the hunt for quality pecan nuts, then sometimes it’s best to give the grocery store a miss. Although grocery store pecans are readily available and often competitively priced, if it’s real quality you’re after then there are better places to shop. Here are our three recommendations for buying the very best quality pecan nuts.
Buy Directly From The Grower
Depending on where you are in the world, you may be lucky enough to purchase your pecans directly from the farmers who grew them. An increasing number of pecan farmers have started their own e-commerce sites in an attempt to sell their crops directly to consumers, helping to increase their profits. Generally speaking, most US-based pecan growers only ship to continental US states to keep costs down, but some do offer postage to Alaska, Hawaii, and further afield.
Check Out Amazon
For snack packs and a variety of pecan products all in one place, then it’s hard to beat the online retail giant, Amazon. With everything from pecan halves to snack packs of candied pecan pieces, Amazon certainly provides choice. When shopping on Amazon, it does help to have an idea of what you are looking for; otherwise, the pages of pecan products can start to look confusing. As with all online orders, do ensure to check the package size to avoid paying above the odds for smaller packing, and where possible, place a smaller order first to check the quality before ever buying in bulk.
Visit Us At Ayoub’s
In Canada, it can be hard to shop for pecans directly from the grower, and Amazon isn’t always the best choice when it comes to customer service and superior quality, which is why you should also visit us here at Ayoub’s. At Ayoub’s, we don’t buy our pecans from the major US pecan producing areas, which tend to focus on yield rather than quality. Instead, we choose to source our pecan nuts from California, where orchards are often smaller, and a superior quality pecan can be found. Crisp, fresh, and buttery, our pecans are a firm favorite with our customers and have five-star rave reviews from dozens of happy pecan lovers. If you prefer an in-store shopping experience, then come on down to one of our Ayoub’s stores to try our pecans for yourself, or if you’re further afield, then head over to our web store, which ships all over Canada, including Vancouver Island and also ships to the United States.
So there you have it. We hope you can find the quality pecans that you are looking for!
