Trader Joe’s Review: Garlic and Onion Pistachios

Spread the love!

Trader Joe’s added garlic and onion seasoning to their new pistachios. Read on to see if you should buy a bag.

I love just about anything garlic or onion flavored. And I already knew the Salt & Pepper Pistachios were to-die-for. So I figured these new Garlic and Onion Pistachios would be just about the best thing I had ever tasted.

The pistachios come in a resealable bag, which is nice, since eating all 13 ounces in one go would not be a great idea. Don’t ask me how I know….

The garlic and onion flavor was just right and went well with the flavor of the pistachios. I did feel, though, that these were too light on the salt. I like things pretty salty, so maybe it was just me, but that lack of saltiness will keep me from buying these again.

Most of the shells were easy to open, but the few that weren’t were easily dealt with using this trick.

Nutrition Information for Trader Joe’s Garlic and Onion Pistachios

A serving size is a 1/2 cup of pistachios with the shell still on. There are about 6 servings in the package.

There’s nothing too shocking here. These are nuts so there’s a good amount of fat, though most of it is the “good stuff”. I am surprised to see the sodium level given I did not think these tasted salty at all.

The list of ingredients for Garlic and Onion Pistachios.

Like all Trader Joe’s products, this mix does not contain artificial flavors, preservatives, or colorings.

Verdict: 6/10

These pistachios had good flavor but were not nearly salty enough for my taste. I probably won’t buy these again and will stick the Salt & Pepper Pistachios instead. If you’re not a salty person, you might like these more than I did.

  1. I love the taste of these go through a bag or so a week. Lately I’ve noticed that 20-30 per bag are immature and the shells haven’t opened at all requiring a nutcracker. Then you get a green one. I usually see only a couple of those in other brands of pistachios.
