The quest for unsalted cashews

You'd think that something like unsalted cashews would be easy to find. Unfortunately, this is not the case. If you go through the nuts sold at QFC, Top, and Safeway (the grocery stores near us) there are usually none to be found. There are cashews that are labeled things like salted, 50% salt, reduced salt, sea salt, and lightly salted, but for some reason unsalted seems to be missing. This made me wonder if I'm the only person in USA that likes cashews without salt.

Now after years of being dissatisfied with too salty cashews, I have at last succeeded in my quest. Last week a Trader Joe's opened up a few blocks away, and they have all sorts of unsalted nut mixes including unsalted cashews. Let's all rejoice and eat some nuts.
