5 reasons hazelnuts are a family-friendly snack

(BPT) - Need a new snack? Hungry families are turning to a trendy and tasty new choice — the homegrown hazelnut. Perhaps parents outside the Pacific Northwest might not recognize the state nut of Oregon, but rest assured, there’s more to crack here than mere coffee flavoring.

What makes this nibble unique is that 99% of all the hazelnuts produced in the United States are grown in the picturesque Willamette Valley. Oregon’s rich, volcanic soil and climate conditions contribute to their superior quality and taste.
