Product Review: Green Valley Pecans

Just a quickie today kids. Pecans. They're in the, oh... top five best nuts to mix with chocolate. So when I got a sample from Green Valley Pecan Co. I figured something chocolate had to be done. So I made those chocolate pecan cookies that I posted about yesterday. But how were they just by themselves? Well to test that I ate a handful. They were quite good. Were they significantly better than the kind I get at the store whose name I can't remember? Not really, but if their prices were the same I would pick the Green Valley ones. And not just because they sent me free samples. Heh.

They look plump and moist and really look like A-1 pecans. Picture is great. What kind of camera did you end up getting?

Vicki said...

Wandering Coyote: Heh, people email me and offer to send me stuff. I've gotten a couple things through Foodbuzz, too.

Karen: Thanks! I got a Canon A2100. I'm still figuring out it's quirks, but it takes nice pictures.

Vicki: I've never been a pecan pie fan, but I've been told I've never had good pecan pie. Maybe I should have made one with these...

girlichef: Again with the pie! Where were you guys when I was wondering what to do with these? :D

Danielle: Sweet and spicy pecans sounds awesome. I'm not going to comment again about the pie. ;)
