The Somis Nut House

** Scroll on down past this post for Wordless Wednesday.

I made a little trip to the Somis Nut House. It’s located on Los Angeles Ave. between Lewis Rd. (Hwy 34) and North St. in the little town of Somis, California. It’s a family run business that has been in Somis for almost 48 years. It’s nothing great to look at from the outside but on the inside you find rows and rows of nuts, dried fruit, nut meal, and specialty candy, jams, sauces, etc.

If you blink you’ll drive right by it.

Like I said nothing glamorous on the outside.

 

 

Almonds, Filberts, Cashews, Peanuts, Pecans, trail mixes, etc.

 

Love the signs like Cashier Nut. And I was so pleased to find Walnettos here. “Want a Walnetto?” Is anyone old enough to remember that line from Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In?

Forget Me Nut…

They also have Almond meal and Filbert Meal

 

Had to include this shot with Fruit Labels from the state of Washington…

These were my choices for the day. Roasted and Salted Peanuts, Honey Roasted Peanuts, and of course the Walnetto’s! We were more impressed with the taste of the peanuts from Somis Nut House than Trader Joe’s. Dear says “In comparison the peanuts from Trader Joe’s tasted like they came across the Atlantic between the toes of Columbus’ men.”

So the next time I want nuts for anything I’ll be coming back to Somis Nut House…

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. Oh my, we have a new bag of Trader Joe’s peanuts on our shelf. I don’t think I will be able to eat them without thinking of Columbus!

    I have never heard of Somis before. Must be a tiny town.

  2. Oh yummy. I just love fresh dried fruit and nuts. When I saw this I went and had a look at an old wooden box that came from my grandparents. ..thinking that maybe there would be a connection since it came from California.
    On the box it says fresh packed prunes from California packed by Libby.
    Funny how these things bring reminders.

  3. I’ve driven past the Somis Nut House but I’ve never stopped. I’ll have to make a quick run over there. The Professor likes to keep a supply of trail mix around.

  4. Boy, “Dear’s” comment makes one never desire to see another nut. What a thought… between the toes? and several centuries ago? yuck! Pretty funny guy!

    Blessings, Kim
