Inspired by the booming trend in China, those nutty geniuses over at MacFarms have launched Macadamias that can be consumed directly from the shell using a unique key in the pack. – Easy Open Macadamias (Roasted & Salted in the Shell).
Macadamias are rich in good monounsaturated fats and fibre, as well as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals containing high levels of essential nutrients iron and magnesium, however unlike opening peanuts or pistachios, it takes some serious manpower to extract a Macadamia from its shell; 300 pounds of pressure per square inch to be exact, making it the hardest nut in the world to crack.
Available in a 350g stand-up resealable pouch, every Macadamia has a groove in its shell, which can be opened using a small metal key included in each pack. Simply insert the key into the slit and lever to crack open the shell to reveal the nutty treasure inside.
Grown and harvested on home soil, MacFarms Easy Open Macadamias are available for limited seasonal release in the fresh produce section of Coles supermarkets from October, while stocks last.
