I love eating cashew nuts! They tsate so good. I just ate some of the cashew nuts that has the halfs and pieces in the container. It is made with Pure Sea Salt. They are delicious! I love eating these as a snack. And they keep me from being hungry all of the time. I did heard that cashews are good for you. They have protein in it and that makes it very healthy for your body. Do you like cashew nuts? Please share your comments with me about cashews. Thanks!

I really love cashews it has to be the salty ones and they have to be made by Planters otherwise they seem to taste kinda funny. Cashwes do have alot of proetein in them so they are good in moderation but they are high in fat and high in sodium which is bad for you so just moderation is the key.

They are my downfall! ..... ok, I've got many downfalls, but these are one of them! LOL They are higher in calories than some nuts and if I eat more than a few, they tend to sit like a rock in my stomach, but I love them anyway!! It's nice to know that in small amounts they are good for me too!

I like cashew nuts too. It's really tasty compared to plain nuts. The problem is tha it is also more fattening. Sometimes the flavor is too strong too so if I eat a lot, I'll have a sore throat in no time. I haven't tried sea slated cashew nuts. I prefer the unsalted or raw ones. As a said, the flavor is already very strong so adding salt will just make it too flavorful for me.

I also like cashew nuts very much. Here the roasted cashew prices are very higher. I buys small packets when I have money. I love to buy the container of cashew nuts. I buy it once in a while when I gets extra money. I think salted and roasted cashew nuts are very tasty. Yes I also think they have protein in it and are good for health.

I love cashew nuts too. I once had a can of them that I got for Christmas, as my mom and dad know I love them. They gave me a can of chocolate covered cashew nuts! Boy were they yummy. Only problem was, they were very high in calories and fat. Sadly, cashews are not the healthiest of nuts- almonds are better for you. But I love them anyway.

I also like cashew nuts. I like to eat them as they are. I have not tried it with pure sea salt. Is it packaged? If yes, then what is the name of the product. I also like them as a sweet dish called "kaju katli" My parents buy 500gms or more of fresh cashew nuts when we go to our native place.

Hi cream dear! Wow, I do love cashew nuts but I really don't have them as much as I want to. They are very expensive here and I just can't afford to have them as I wish. It has a lot of health benefits. There is a Philippine scientist who has made a career out of studying the health benefits of cashew nut extract. He markets the extract in a cream for warts, moles and other skin growths. The Philippine-produced cream is also reportedly effective on basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer, though this too is not available in the U.S.(I think?). However, friends and one family member have used this already for warts and it is really effective. Take care and blessings to you! lovelots..faith

Hey cream! You now have my mouth watering for some cashew halves too! I love cashew nuts! I think that they are my very favorite nuts, except for pistachio! I just love to eat cashews! I can't stop myself once I start! I can open the can and keep eating them! They just have such a great taste and they are good for you too! Now I want to go and get some, but I don't feel like taking a walk to the store! And they are so expensive unless you catch them on sale! So I guess I will just have to dream about them!

Yup, I love them! I could consume a plateful of them...these days however, I would rather cut or limit my cashew nuts intake as I know they contain lots of fats and cholesterol which is bad for me since I have low grade diabetes. Exercise in moderation is the key, especially when it comes to things I eat. Of course, there are lots of benefits from cashew nuts, but we should never over eat, lest we become obese. I'm now conscious of my eating habits....

My husband's officemate, had given us 2 containers of cashew nuts. We have already finished one container. And the other container is already half-empty. When I start to eat it, I don't realize that I'm already eating a lot :)

I like eating cashews too, they are good for you, actually most nuts are, I know that almonds are good for you too, you only have to eat a handful of those a day. I need to start finding better things to snack on when I get hungry during the day, I might start eating cashews...Have a good day

I do like cashew nuts, but prefer pistachio nuts and can munch on those for ages! I also like peanuts when they are roasted. They are very yummy when they are salted too but I know that's highly unhealthy so I tend to stay away from salted nuts in general!
