Virgin Nuts. Le passé, le présent, l'avenir...
4 March 2021
It’s… TODAY! The descending low numbers of this special date inspired us to emphasize our clean label products and the minimum of ingredients that are used to create #absolutelydelicious #higquality #100%natural and #uniqueproducts we produce. Either caramelised or dry roasted and seasoned. We make it happen.
4 - Dry roasted rosemary chili almonds; only 4 ingredients make this #loveatfirstbite product: almonds, rosemary, chili and sea salt.
3 - Honey cashews; beautiful moon shaped cashews with sugar and honey; that’s all what’s needed to make an indulgent caramelised cashew with honey.
2 - Caramelised pecans; pecans and sugar (either beet sugar sor raw cane sugar); a perfect combination for allowing nuts to be processed in chocolate or ice cream, while preserving their original taste and crunchiness.
1 - We can also supply plain or roasted #almonds, #cashews, #hazelnuts, #peanuts, #pecans or other nuts. Pure and simple.
4 March 2021, we call it #cleanlabelday. Happy 4-3-21!
Granola for Food Bank
Sometimes you will only know the true value of food when it becomes unaffordable ... Thanks to Voedselbanken Nederland (Food Bank), food remains accessible, even when the going gets tough.
And unfortunately, the going also got tough for one of our customers. They didn’t survive the COVID-19 related regulations in their country and had to return freshly produced #absolutelydelicious granola. We’ve immediately decided to donate this granola to the Voedselbank and support their main goals: providing direct food aid to the ones in need and preventing the waste of good food.

Clean label caramelised peanuts; safe snacking
Peanuts, you love them or you hate them (maybe even cannot eat them ;-(). Just like tree nuts, peanuts are full of unsaturated fats, iron, B vitamins and vitamin E, hence super healthy. At Virgin Nuts, we turn these ground nuts into an indulgent and clean label snack. No e-numbers and no artificial flavouring nor colouring. Our famous caramelised peanuts (or sugar peanuts, if you prefer) only consist of peanuts and sugar and are natural golden brown. On top of this: the caramelised layer provides a crunch, while the specific peanut flavour is retained. 100% natural caramelised peanuts… we love them!
p.s. if you have a zero-tolerance policy for peanuts, don’t let this post scare you off. We have a peanut free production facility, especially for the production of ingredients for many peanut free applications.
It’s all thanks to hazelnuts
5 February is #WorldNutellaDay, one of the most indulgent days of the year. Nutella® is a perfect combination of hazelnuts and cocoa. The story goes that it was a shortage of cocoa in the Piedmont region of Italy back in the 1800s, causing these two nature ingredients to combine. To stretch the supply, chocolate was mixed with ground hazelnuts. Much later Nutella® became the creamy version of the mixture and it’s one of those products that everyone knows around the world.
The reason that we honour this famous product, is obviously our love for hazelnuts – especially caramelised - and the #loveatfirstbite combination that nuts make - especially if caramelised 😉 - with chocolate. Whether whole, diced or slivered, we can produce Caramelised hazelnuts as the perfect ingredient for your chocolate.Read More
Crunchy honey peanuts for peanut butter
January 24th is #NationalPeanutButterDay. On this day, the over 100 year old spread in its current form, gets the recognition it deserves. Creamy or chunky, with chocolate or with jelly, all delicious, but our top favourite is peanut butter with crunchy Honey peanuts #loveatfirstbite.
We’ve celebrated the anniversary with lots and lots of this comforting and filling spread. Of course only in our main building, because obviously we have a zero tolerance for peanuts and derivatives in our #peanutfree facility.Read More
Botanical flavours @ Virgin Nuts
It’s winter in Europe. Even though it can be cold outside, it’s the season where we bring extra lights and warmth into our homes. And lots of comfortable smelling green and flowers. It’s the season in which we’ve said goodbye to the old and welcomed the new year. A new year in which the pandemic hopefully will be controlled, giving us free access to an enjoyable summer. With our Honey rose almonds we give you a sneak preview of a happy season full of light and fresh botanical flavours.Read More
