I have been obsessing about Fisher Nuts since I tasted them en route to Seoul, Korea.
Since I was pregnant, I asked the flight attendants for more peanuts - and they gave me a LOT of the Fisher Honey Roasted nuts! And I have to say, after tasting the Fisher brand - there was no turning back! All other brands - were no comparison at all!
When I got back to Manila, my limited stash was depleting - and this prompted me to try and contact Fisher US to ask if they have a local distributor here in Manila or in nearby countries. I was prepared to have friends buy it for me! I sent an email and after a few weeks - I received a 'tweet' from Fisher Nuts. They sent me a direct message saying that they have a distributor in our country - they supplied me with the name of the company and the number.
Of course, eager beaver me - I had to call immediately to ask. I looked for the person who's name was sent in together with the number in the direct message of Fisher - unfortunately, he was out! But I left my number and asked for a ring back. And they did ring me back - I spoke to a lovely Evelyn, she told me that the shipment of the nuts will be arriving 2011 and that upon its arrival here in Manila - she will give me a call to tell me. She also was impressed that I got their number and that I was interested in a product that hasn't been sold or marketed yet here in the Philippines. She said that for the trouble I went through just to look for them (contacting Fisher US) it must mean that I really like the product! I told her that I was able to try packs of the nuts while on a Korean Airlines flight!
So last week, she sends me an email telling me that the nuts have ARRIVED!! :) They're initially available in ALL Robinson's Supermarket outlets. Good thing, there's one near me!! :) So last night, I couldn't help myself - despite the time, I drove myself to a Robinson's Supermarket to purchase Fisher Nuts! Evelyn told me to try out the Butter Toffee Peanuts - because its her personal favorite. I was so excited that I opened the small plastic container and tried some - and indeed they're really goooood!! A twist of sweet and salty - with nuts!! :)
Thank you Clever Cats! Thank you Fisher Nuts!
THANK YOU Korean Airlines - for introducing me to this brand!!
Happy days are FINALLY here!!! :)
