Macadamias with punch. Snacmacs by Brookfarm in Australia are quite a cool find. These macadamias have been seasoned just right with bush spices, including lemon Myrtle.
Mauna Loa has been so successful in associating macadamias with Hawaii, that I had no idea that this nut is actually native to Australia and is the only Australian food produced and exported in quantity.
I also had quite a surprise about some other nuts in my pantry. Apparently Brazil nuts have the most natural radioactivity of all foods! Take a look a this site, and scroll down the page to "Food" for comparison with other common foods.
