Even in the Philippines where the pili nut is grown and harvested you would be hard pressed to find the pili nut being sold in stores still in their shells. Usually, you get them out of their shells roasted, salted or candied. Why? Because pili nuts are one of the toughest nuts to crack, the regular nut cracker just won’t do the job. In the Philippines, people use a bolo or machete to break the tough shell.
But naturally, you get the best taste and nutrients from these nuts when they are freshly cracked from their shell. Thus The Cracking Monkey Pili Nuts was created.
For the first time, you can now enjoy your pili nuts the natural way straight from its shell with The Cracking Monkey’s patented “notch and lever” system. No processing or roasting just pili nuts naturally pre-sprouted to enhance their nutritional value.
