Wonderful Pistachios

Wonderful Pistachios are one of the highest protein snack nuts that are also a complete protein. Wonderful Pistachios are not only a good source of protein and fiber, but they’re also portable, making them super convenient. A serving of pistachios provides 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber. Even better, they offer more bang for your calorie buck, giving you 49 nuts per ounce compared to just 15 potato chips (and we all know no one eats just 15 potato chips anyway).

Wonderful Pistachios No Shells BBQ and Sea Salt & Vinegar are bold new flavors to keep better-for-you snacking interesting. You can also turn up the heat with Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Chili Roasted or grab a bag of just-a-little-sweet Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Honey Roasted, kissed with honey and a dash of salt for the ultimate sweet and savory snack.
