Macadamia Nuts are native to Australia. They are quite pricey nuts but they are getting more pricey these days. They say that the macadamia nuts growers are struggling to keep up with demand as they are getting more popular. It’s a bit sad news for consumers. But the texture of Macadamia Nuts cannot compare to any other nuts.
