Unshelled Nuts, in Bulk - Pasadena-ish?

ElsieDee Jan 14, 2014 08:32 AM

Looking for a source for unshelled nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, peanuts) in bulk in the Pasadena area. (To feed to wildlife, though we humans will partake, too, I'm certain.) Any leads?

      Looks like there's a Super King in Altadena, Linus - will definitely be checking them out. Thanks!

        Like their unshelled (but soft) almonds.

        *grinning* Thanks for replying, anyway. I appreciate you wanting to help me on this quest.

        Two places I know, neither in Pasadena, are Christopher Nuts in Van Nuys and Garvey Nut And Candy in Pico Rivera. Both sell in bulk cases.

          Thanks, boogiebaby - I think Van Nuys is too far, but Pico Rivera is doable.

            Oh, good one, Servorg; I need to head that direction on Thursday and it looks like they do will calls! Thank you so much.

            Try these guys - primarily wholesale but will usually sell retail if you have cash:

              There is also ALADDIN NUT HOUSE on Washington between Allen & Hill. However, if the nuts are primarily for wildlife, I would have to concur with the Super King recommendation.
