Israel: No Nuts for You!

Israel is the world's largest consumer of pistachio nuts, but recent reports reveal that illegal imports from Iran may be its primary source. Jewschool's Shalom Rav jokes: “Anyone with even a passing knowledge of Israeli snacking habits will attest that Israel will be hard pressed to give up their pistachio addiction, no matter where the nuts actually come from. For its part, Israel claims it gets most of its pistachios from Turkey (yeah, right!).”

  • Well all i can say that not only Israel are addicted to pistachio nuts… I love pistachio nuts as well because of the creaminess and richness of the taste. :D
