    Where are all the Macadamia nuts?

    I've been buying some christmas nibbles but can't find them too easily. Sainsburys' only had tiny packets, ASDA, LIDL, and ALDI none at all. I've yet to try Tesco or Waitrose.

    Has anybody seen them on sale?

    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    Macadamia nuts are expensive, but worth it! They seem to be in all the usual places here in the states!

    If you have trouble finding them, it's because my husband ate them!

    I thought there may have been a shortage. I found a couple of small packet that were very expensive compared to last year. Perhaps people have gone off them or other crops were more profitable.

    There seems to be a normal supply here - at the normally high price

    Every Xmas season, they come out with those nut platters that have chocolate-covered nuts, beer nuts, cashews, peanuts, etc, etc, etc. My wife and I pick one up every year. I love 'em, but usually get pretty sick of them by Xmas.

    I thought it was bad then, but this year is even worse!...

    An update. I found a packet of 200g in Holland and Barratt for... and you'd better brace yourselves... 7.69! Seven pounds freakin' sixty-nine!


    No, I don't think they'll sell many at that price, and certainly not to me!

    Don't see any problems here. Although I haven't priced them out
