"These hazelnuts are delicious. They were perfect for making hazelnut butter and a homemade version of Nutella. The nuts also go really well in salads."

I agree.
 May 25, 2014
"I agree with other reviewers here. Not that crisp crunch I like from a nut and the taste is muted vs. the distinct taste of a hazelnut. Spongy yes, and a number of them with an off flavor."

Not as good as I had hoped.
 March 29, 2014
"I love cracking filberts and eating them, but these
don't have the good flavor I usually have in this nut.
These are somewhat bitter, and spongy. Not so good.

Good - but not extra large
 February 9, 2014
"For the most part, the nuts were very tasty. There were one or two with an "off" flavor. To my eye they were average size - not extra large, but if you don't find size important (I don't), you'll like these."
