According to Information Resources, Inc. (IRI), a data analytics and market research company focused on the consumer packaged goods industry, the popularity of Wonderful Pistachios No Shells has made Wonderful Pistachios one of America's fastest-growing snack brands, driving double-digit growth for the company.
