Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on May 13, 2020
PLEASE NOTE that I seldom buy Planters cashews, but I do once in a while whenever I need to meet Amazon's $25 free-shipping requirement.
-- Planters cashews are not as crunchy as I like, but they're still somewhat tasty.

Below I review the 3 different TYPES of Planters cashews which I've tried plus the Costco's (40 oz jar) and Aldi's (30 oz jar) cashews which I usually buy MOST of the time (on average, one jar each week).
-- I give each of the 5 products its own rating based on 5 stars (=100%; highly recommended).

PLEASE NOTE that, based on my lifetime experience eating cashews, NONE of the 5 products reviewed is as good as the BEST cashews (5 stars; 100%) which I have ever eaten.
-- Costco's cashews are consistently 4.5 stars out of 5 stars max.
-- Aldi's cashews are consistently 4 stars out of 5 stars max.
