Shelled pistachios in Calgary

Anyone know where one could get these? I'm asking for a friend.

  1. I saw them last weekend at Community Natural Foods (Chinook location). They're kept in a cooler near the bulk goods.

    Going Nuts are the Calgary Farmer's Market also sells them but since last weekend was their final weekend at Currie Barracks, I'm not sure where you'd find them.

    1. Planet Organic carries them. Expensive but if you need them, you need them. Unsalted of course. Usually with the dried fruits/nuts section. Don't carry them in the bulk bins.

      1. Costco sells a large bag, a few pounds--maybe-- for about $15. Sold in the power bar/trail mix area.

          Good tip. Safeway sells them too for $15--but it's a small box.

          I got mine at Community Natural Foods. They were about $4.50 per cup.

        2. I think I've seen them at Lina's
          (though not 100% sure)
