One may think the history of almonds wasn’t as exciting and flavorful before OLOMOMO...
However, humans have been incorporating almonds, and roasted almonds, into their daily lives for a long time. Archeologists have found evidence of roasted nuts as far back as 10,000 years ago. They have long been the ultimate survival food for primates like us.

My name is Justin Perkins, I’m the founder of this nutty, adventurous little business called Olomomo. Here’s my story.  Watch the video above that captures the essence of our origins on The Cooking Channel, or read on.  I hope it inspires you.


It’s no secret now that most nuts are a wonderful source of healthy fats and nutrients if eaten in moderation.  

I designed Olomomo as a way to fit a very active and busy lifestyle, provide a healthy snack, and not sacrifice on flavor. Here are five easy ways that I've integrated nuts into my lifestyle to stay fueled, satisfied, increase metabolism, and enjoy life.


Most of the people I deeply admire on this planet have an attitude of gratitude.

Cashews are perhaps the most mysterious of all nuts. I mean, look at that thing.

But do you know why you never see a cashew sold in a shell?

Most tree nuts aren’t really “nuts” after all. They’re the kernel of drupes, or stone fruits, that have a fleshy part surrounding a shell with a pit inside.

Well, sometimes you need a kick in the pants.  Having an objective witness hold up a mirror and show you how you're showing up in the world can help light a fire.  And help you "kick ass where you have control."

From the package: "OLOMOMO infuses smoke captured from a secret blend of apple trees and alder wood and lightly roasts the cashews with a pinch of sea salt. Close your eyes and escape back to the calm crackling comfort of the smoky campfire. (Some say it tastes like bacon for vegans)."
