Cashews, consumed in moderation, are one of the heart healthy nuts (yeah, yeah, I know...it's not really a nut, it's the seed of some kind of bizarre fruit). Supposedly, cashews has good fats, and can actually help lower LDL. But, the most important feature is cashews taste great. And Planters does an excellent job marketing and offering a quality product. I bought a number of these containers, and are handy for snacking alone and when guests are around. No brainer, if you like cashews....this lightly salted version is an excellent choice.
