Nonpareil: The premium snack nut with the widest range of use. A thin outer shell and smooth kernel allow for fewer chips and scratches during processing. As a result, Nonpareils are used
Carmel: Actually a member of the California type varieties, the Carmel has become popular enough to warrant its own classification. They are uniform in shape and color often used as a substitute for Nonpareil.
California Group: This classification includes a number of varieties, used primarily in manufactured products. Shells are of medium thickness, and their skins are normally darker than the Nonpareil. The California variety is quite adaptable and well suited for nearly any process or application. Shape and color may vary.
