— A lot of people want to eat nut-filled cookies and peanut butter.
But the world may have to settle for a small package of nuts in Modesto.
Modesto has some of the worlds smallest nuts.
The city is located in the Mojave Desert, and according to the website for the Modesto County Health Department, the city has more than 400 species of nut.
You might be surprised to learn that Modesto also has one of the smallest nuts in the United States.
A package of small nuts costs between $2.25 and $4.75 depending on the species.
One package of chopped nuts can weigh about 15 grams.
A full-size package can weigh as much as 35 grams.
But the nut that has the smallest package size is a species of peanut called “coconut nut,” or “pinkie.”
A pack of chopped coconut nuts weighs about 14 grams.
And the nut with the largest package size?
It’s the “peanut butter” variety.
According to the USDA, a small, sweet peanut butter can weigh between 0.25 grams and 0.8 grams, and a large, nutty one can weigh around 10 grams.
A pack will be about 6.4 inches long and 3.5 inches wide.
And you’d need to hold that thing close to your face for that to work.
