Fisher Butter Toffee Peanuts

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

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!!! :)

    1. You won't find them anywhere na.. According to the distributor, it didn't do well in the market. So they stopped importing it. I buy my stash in HK! Let me know if you want some.

      Love, didi
