Question:

Why do packaged almonds look “nibbled” on?

Answer:

The marks or small blemishes in the brown peel of almonds very often comes from the shelling machine. Sometimes it end up scraping the almond itself. You should however check the bag to make sure that it doesn’t have webbing or powder on the bottom of it. If it does that would be a sign of infestation.

Best Wishes
