I am looking for a way to save on buying organic nuts and I found nuts.com who ships to Canada. I am not sure if their prices are good or not . Their organic almonds sell for $13.99/lb.

Anybody have experience with them?

I buy dates from them and they are way tastier and fresher than grocery store dates. They have super fast shipping too. I did find that because the dates are so good and because I buy them in bulk I go through them faster so the savings is reduced.

ha! ^^^^^

i have that site bookmarked for a long time. been tempted to buy some of their raw nuts, which are totally raw and unprocessed, and see if i can start them for some nut trees.

i have the sense that they would sprout.

actually theres other stuff that they sell, that i think you could purchase for cheap seed. they certainly have a lot of tempting things. =) and beautiful foods =)
