The price of almonds

Recommended Posts

dowling gram

I make my own almond flour with blanched sliced almonds. I usually order the 300G packages from Walmart 6 to 10 at a time. They used to be $4.22 a package. Today when I went to order them they were $727. A $3 jump. I can only think there must be a shortage caused by weather conditions where they grow. If you buy any almond product--flour etc.-- check the price. If it's what you've always paid stock up because it's sure to go up soon

They grow almonds in California. They are having a terrible drought on the West Coast. I noticed Almond flour has jumped in price, too. I am looking at other LC flour alternatives.

The last time we drove through almond country, we saw so many trees/orchards dieing due to the drought, it is so sad, yet the pols do nothing. I met a rice farmer & their water allotment was cut by 1/3, but rice grows in water!!

I buy bulk to make my own chocolate almond butter and the ones at Sam's club come to $5.60 per pound. They are whole almonds however because I like the extra fiber in my butter.
