Can't find any, unless I buy them with shells or in tiny, totally overpriced bags. Online, a pound goes for around $9 plus $8 shipping, which isn't any less insane. What gives?

I can only hope there is. Then they'll stop making that awful smelling coffee that my friend drinks.

I don't believe they use real hazelnuts for that...

Didn't know that the hazelnuts came from Turkey - I will need to inspect the origin before I buy them in the future. I do not buy Turkish products...

That's simulated hazelnuts so you need not worry - your friend will continue to enjoy his 'hazelnut flavored' coffee.

I suppose I will have to fly up to Oregon and pick the nuts myself.

I'm relieved that hazelnut coffee isn't made with real hazelnuts because it stinks.

Only problem now is how to get Little Tony to stop drinking that vile slop and drink a proper cup o joe.

Readily available raw and bulk at my local Whole Foods Market. Just take what you want and roast them.

Whole Foods? You want me to go near downtown? People stick their hands in the bulk bins. No thanks, I prefer halfway hygienically packaged nuts.

Seem to be plenty of hazelnuts to adulterate down here.
