Dear Wonderful Pistachios,

I keep finding empty shells in my bags of delicious pistachios. Did I receive a defective package? If so, how do I go about applying for a refund? I’ve already eaten the pistachios containing nuts.

Also, removing the shells is so time consuming. Do you sell a version of these nuts that’s easier to eat?

Hello again. Pistachios were on sale at my local Kroger grocery store, so I bought another package and the same thing happened! I found two delicious pistachios without the nut meat inside the shell.

Also I still have not received the coupon for my previously defective bag as promised.

Also, would it be possible to take a tour of your pistachio farm? My son loves to play with farm animals.

Hello Mrs. Wilson,

We attempted to send your coupons via regular mail and the letter was returned to us undeliverable. Could you provide me with your full address so that I may resend them?

Thank you,

Ashley Fuller

Thank you! Yes, please resend it.

My full address is I was having some problems with my mail but my friend John Osborne installed a new virus scanner on my Microsoft word, so maybe that’s why I didn’t receive it.

If it doesn’t deliver this time, I’ll get him to help us.

Linda Wilson

I apologize, I would need your mailing address so that I can mail the coupons.

Oh! Sorry!

My mailbox isn’t that big, so depending on many pistachios you send they might not fit. If it’s a big package please put it on the back patio.

Linda Wilson,

Mrs. Wilson, We will be mailing product replacement vouchers. The letter and coupons will be in a regular sized envelope.

Also, to answer your question regarding a tour of the pistachio farm. I apologize but, we do not offer tours of our plant or farms at this time.

Thank you,
Ashley Fuller
