The Cracking Monkey brings you all-natural fair trade pili nuts in shell. Their products are made by Philippine artisans, and are one of the only food companies in the world to use no plastic and create virtually no waste.

About The Cracking Monkey

Sourced from the volcanic regions of Bicol, pili nuts are a superfood native to the Philippines and known as one of the toughest nuts to crack. Because of this, pili nuts are often sold in markets out of their shells already roasted, salted, or candied. But to really maximize their health benefits, pili nuts are best eaten freshly cracked from their shell totally free from processing, preservatives, and additives.

That is where The Cracking Monkey comes in. With their patented “notch and lever” system, you can now enjoy freshly cracked pili nuts without the hassle and all the nutritional goodness. To name a few, pili nuts have the highest content of Vitamin E and the lowest allergen threshold of all nuts. They are also an excellent source of magnesium, manganese, good fats, and contain a good dose of iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, protein, and fiber.

Gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan friendly, The Cracking Monkey’s pili nuts make a healthy snack for everyone, even those with dietary restrictions. But what the food brand also wants to emphasize is that their pili nuts are minimally processed, free of chemicals, GMO, and potentially toxic ingredients. All you get are 100% raw, organic, and natural pili nuts packaged in a reusable cotton sacks that are biodegradable and totally eco-friendly.
