Stocking up on healthy snacks with Just Nuts.
I’ve never really gotten into ordering cooked food and foodstuffs online.
Ordering meals via Grab and Foodpanda is usually extravagant for me, given I mostly dine alone on weekdays. Groceries and snacks, well, I belong to the older generation. I somewhat still need to physically touch a packet of something before buying that something to eat.
2020 has forced me to change though, and I suppose it’s all for the better. Pandemic concerns aside, it’s quite a hassle to scan-in/scan-out just to buy something at a supermarket, yes? Doubly so during peak hours. It’s like, why not just do purchases online using dependable delivery services?
Well, I’ve been experimenting with snack delivery of late; specifically, healthier snacks the likes of what’s mentioned in Best in Singapore’s Best 7 Nuts & Snacks in Singapore. Last Friday, I placed an order with Just Nuts, an online nuts delivery service in Singapore.
In short, the buying experience was really as fuss-free and as enjoyable as the platform promises. What’s delivered was to my pleasant surprise, totally satisfactory too.
(I’m snacking on my purchases as I type this. The rate I’m going, I probably have to buy more before the week is over.)
This Just Nuts review is a collaboration with Liquid Gateway, a payment service solution provider that empowers online businesses with a suite of centralized and secure in-store transaction management services.
1. The Platform
A quick introduction about Just Nuts before I continue.
This Singaporean nuts delivery service specialises in natural organic nuts and dried fruits. Their products are hand-picked, as well as pesticide and chemical-free. Once harvested, the produce are also stored in the dark at a chilling -2 degrees. In other words, they are preservatives free.
For customers, I think what’s attractive is that Just Nuts offers free replacements. If you receive a spoilt pack, all you would have to do is to email them about it. For new buyers like me, this is a great assurance of quality.
2. Order and Fast Delivery
Like what anyone would nowadays expect from a foodstuffs delivery service, the ordering process was easy and smooth, with individual products available for as little as 100g.
Very easy to pick and choose, in other words. Completely debunks my previous perception that you have to buy in bulk when buying from online food merchants too.
3. Nuts and Dried Fruits Quality
Here’s my feedback about my order. In general, I’d say I’m satisfied with the overall freshness and taste of everything.
What I ordered the most since I can gobble down buckets of these when binging on streaming movies.
What’s delivered was not only fresh and crunchy, it’s also much less salted than the ones sold at supermarkets. As much as I, ahem, prefer them to be saltier, it was a good reminder that I should consider healthier snacking. Especially with the quantities I’m eating.
I’m weird about almonds. I enjoy the creamy bite and taste. But more so, I love the fragrant.
Yeah, the distinctive smell. One sniff at the pack I received and I gave it a thumbs-up. It’s passed my test!
By the way, almonds are fantastic sources of protein, minerals, and monounsaturated fats too. Eating them unsalted is hands-down one of the best ways to improve heart health.
Pistachios are among the healthiest nuts to snack on, that being the reason I bought these.
I’d say what’s delivered was flavourful; in many ways, better than the packed ones that I buy from supermarkets. There was also a great texture with every bite, which I believe is a sign of their freshness.
D. Raw Cashews
These were for my mom and so I only ate one. (Oh alright, I pinched more than one) Overall, the signature buttery cashew taste was there. The cashews themselves were also easy to bite on without being soft; in other words, fresh. I think they’d be splendid after my mom uses them in her cooking.
I love Macadamias; that is when hidden in chocolates. And so I was a little surprised by the appearance of what I received.
They still tasted fine, though. Not as flavourful as some others I’ve eaten but still a delight to slowly munch on. I should highlight Just Nuts is selling this premium nut at an attractive price too. This is especially so if you buy enough to enjoy free delivery.
F. Dried Figs
To be honest, I’m not into figs; I ordered these for my dad. I did, however, try one and it was pretty crunchy and rich. My dad also didn’t say anything after munching on some. Going by his character, that means he was satisfied.
