Lately I’ve been trying to get away from processed snacks such as granola bars that can be high in added sugars and carbs. After researching the benefits of nuts, I’ve been stocking my pantry with more of them for healthier, on-the-go snacking.

It turns out, nuts of all type are full of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. They are higher in calories, but they help you feel more full and satisfied, and they may actually help you lose weight. Nuts are also high in fat, but they primarily contain healthy unsaturated fat, and they may help lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Nuts may also reduce your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

Aldi sells a good selection of nuts, from traditional peanuts to cashews, pistachios, almonds, and more. If you can’t choose just one, the grocer also stocks a couple of salted mixed nut options. Aldi sells a pricier “deluxe” mixed nuts option that contains almonds, cashews, pistachios, pecans, and macadamia nuts. They also have a less-expensive mixed nuts option, which features peanuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and pecans

Here, I’m looking at their cheaper mixed nuts.

Southern Grove Mixed Nuts with Sea Salt

Southern Grove Mixed Nuts with Sea Salt are a Regular Buy, which means you should be able to find them at Aldi all year.

They cost $4.39 for a 14.75-ounce container at my local store at the time of writing. That comes out to about 30 cents per ounce. In contrast, the Aldi deluxe mixed nuts cost about 43 cents per ounce.

For further comparison, a 27-ounce container of Planters Salted Mixed Nuts cost about 37 cents per ounce at Walmart at the time of writing. You can also get Great Value mixed nuts with peanuts for about 33 cents per ounce at Walmart at the time of writing. The non-deluxe Aldi mixed nuts look to be a good deal in terms of price.

This is a product of the U.S., Argentina, Mexico, Vietnam, Brazil, India, Indonesia, and Turkey.

The container states that some breakage may occur during shipping and handling. Nuts are measured by weight.

These are kosher certified.

Nutrition information and ingredients. (Click to enlarge.)

If you’re looking out for allergens, these contain peanuts and tree nuts (almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and pecans). They may contain milk, soy, wheat, other tree nuts, and sesame.

Ingredients are peanuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pecans, peanut oil, cottonseed oil, sunflower seed oil, and/or canola oil, and sea salt. The label states that this mix contains less than 50% peanuts.

One thing you do have to watch out for with nuts is salt content. With 90 mg of sodium per serving, these have 10 more grams of sodium per serving than the deluxe mixed nuts from Aldi. Still, these seem to be in the same general range as other brands of mixed nuts such as Planters or Great Value. Planters and Great Value do have lightly salted options, which look to have about half the sodium as both of the Aldi mixed nuts varieties. It would be nice if Aldi sold lightly salted nut options.

One 1-ounce serving (about 32 pieces) has 170 calories, 15 grams of total fat (20% DV), 2 grams of saturated fat (10% DV), 90 mg of sodium (4% DV), 5 grams of total carbohydrates (2% DV), 2 grams of dietary fiber (9% DV), 1 gram of total sugars, no added sugars, and 6 grams of protein.

These taste as expected, and they’re good. Peanuts, almonds, and cashew make up the majority of the mix, with not as many hazelnuts and very few pecans. They do seem like they might be a little more salty than the deluxe mixed nuts from Aldi, but the difference is minimal. They’re perfectly fine for snacking or for serving at a party.

The Verdict:

Southern Grove Mixed Nuts with Sea Salt feature peanuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and pecans. They contain less than 50% peanuts. These are good if you’re like nuts or are looking for a snack that’s healthier than potato chips, sweets, or granola bars. They do contain some sodium, but it’s within the range of other mixed nut brands.
