There's nothing better than some of those delicious, warm honey roasted nuts located on street corners everywhere throughout the city. My personal favorite are those candied cashews, mhhhmmmmmm. But where did they all come from? The nuts are actually traditional street food in Argentina and came to New York when founder Alejandro Rad immigrated to New York from Buenos Aires in 1989. Alejandro started with one pushcart, and with some good business he eventually grew into a nuts empire which then became a New York staple. Even though these are especially amazing in the winter, they are actually available all year long.
Here's this cool video from the YouTube channel Munchies that breaks down the history of New York's beloved and delicious honey roasted street nuts.
