Wonderful® Pistachios won the 2020 SnackNation Insights Award for “Best Nut or Trail Mix.” This is the second straight year that a Wonderful Pistachios variety has been named one of the country’s most popular snacks. Wonderful Pistachios Roasted & Salted received the award in 2019.
Snacking is the new norm, with 94 percent of people saying they snack every day, and 47 percent saying they have three or more snacks a day. Containing six grams of plant protein per serving, Wonderful Pistachios No Shells are an easy-to-enjoy and no-mess snack because they don’t have shells.

Wonderful Pistachios No Shells makes it easy to enjoy this snack on the go, with the new flavors adding another delicious layer that’s sought-after and craved by consumers,” said Adam Cooper, senior vice president of marketing, The Wonderful Company. “We are honored to be recognized by SnackNation, and grateful that our commitment to quality led to Wonderful Pistachios being one of the nation’s most popular snacks.”
Introduced in summer 2019 alongside Wonderful Pistachios No Shells Chili Roasted, the Honey Roasted variety is kissed with honey, sugar, and a pinch of salt for a sweet and savory snack. This award builds on the momentum of Wonderful Pistachios No Shells, with flavored varietals representing one-fifth of the overall Wonderful Pistachios No Shells portfolio. Additionally, more than 40 percent of consumers purchasing No Shells flavors are new to the Wonderful Pistachios portfolio.
