Yes, our products contain nuts!
We cannot guarantee that there won’t be traces of any other nuts in our products. So if you have a nut allergy of any kind, I’m afraid we are not for you.
The majority of our products are:
- Gluten Free
- Dairy Free
- Vegan Friendly
We may have specials from time-to-time that include ingredients such as chocolate, and when we do, these products will be clearly marked.
Fresher the Better
We love the satisfying crunch you only get from freshly roasted nuts. So we recommend you enjoy our nuts are soon as possible. But the best-before date, is just that, after that date, they are no longer at their optimal best, but they are still tasty, so we recommend, you give them a try before you discard them.
All our nuts are freshly roasted, we have a relatively short shelf-life compared to other nut companies as we do not use any additives or preservatives. The best way to maintain the freshness of your nuts is to put them into an airtight container for the tubs and to keep the jar lid and the refill packs closed when not in use.
Tubs: (2 – 4 months)
The nuts in our cardboard tubs are sealed inside to keep them as fresh possible. We use either:
- Plastic-Free Bags (Approx. 2 months)
Eco-friendly Compostable Bags made from a 100% home compostable film made from cellulose, derived from sustainable wood pulp. An environmentally friendly choice. These products are naturally more porous, this is great for the environment but it does reduce the shelf-life of our nuts, but we believe it is a price well worth paying.
- Foil Bags (Approx. 4 months)
When it is not possible to use the compostable bags, we will use the foil bags, these will keep the nuts fresher for longer. If you have a preference, please let us know in the order notes and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Our cardboard tubs are fully recyclable, but we recommend you reuse them. They are great for nut refills, spare change or anything else!
Jars: (Approx. 4 months)
- Our jars are fully recyclable but we recommend you reuse them, for nuts or anything else!
- To maintain the freshness, keep the lid closed when not in use
- Each jar is approximately 100m diameter and 150mm high. The weight of the empty jar is approximately 600 grams
Refill Bags: (Approx. 4 months)
- Our refill bags have a fold-down tin-tie to keep your nuts as fresh as possible.
- The refill bag is also reusable, and we recommend you use them again but if you do decide not to reuse it, they are fully biodegradable and home-compostable.
Living by the sea, we often see at first-hand the staggering amount of plastic washed up on our beaches, and we just cannot be a part of it. So all Cracking Nuts products, the jars, the tubs, the refill bags are all plastic-free and can be recycled or are biodegradable. And, its not just the products, but all our packaging is too.
The paper, the boxes, the fillings, the tape are all plastic free.
Our jars are protected by ‘Flexi-Hex’ a robust cardboard sleeve made from over 85% recycled paper pulp.
If you order multiple products, we sometime use third-party boxes.
We mainly use Evri for deliveries. We have tried and tested all of the courier services available and we have found Evri give us the best service.
We use their ‘2-5 day delivery’ service. When you order, you should receive ‘Tracking’ from Parcel2go, the estimated delivery on the tracking is normally 5 days, but in our experience most arrive within 2-3 days. We understand how frustrating it can be if a parcel is late or lost, and it is also very frustrating for us too. But if a parcel is late please let us know and we will see what we can do to help.
NEXT DAY DELIVERY SERVICE
If you need your order more urgently, you may want to upgrade to a ‘Next Day Delivery’ (+£2). Please understand that this does not guarantee your parcel will be delivered the next day. As we will still need to prepare your order. It means that when we do dispatch it, we will order a next-day service from Evri, which could still take 1-2 days.
