"Everyone's favorite nut!"

"Everyone's favorite nut!" A Metafilter search finds the word "nut" in 2058 threads, pistachios once. Sometimes I like pistachios with a beer, but never with a whiskey.

I've never had a pistachio in my entire life.
I am twenty-one years old.
There's no good reason either.

Some of the best nuts and dry fruits used to come from Kabul. I am not sure if they stopped selling them, but I haven't heard of any one still purchasing Kabuli nuts and dry fruits in recent times.

The best: Almonds from the US. Cashews from India. Pistachios from either India or US. Dried figs, etc from Afghanistan/Kabul.

My personal favourites are roasted and salted pistachios and plain cashews.

Nothing beats a good Macadamia Nut.

And since I`m logging in from Japan, I`ll put in a vote for Wasabi peanuts.

I gotta go with pistachios. What is the deal with the red dye, though?

I have to say that I hate pecans with a passion that knows no bounds.

Salted cashews, especially in a stir-fry with chicken.

I've suspected it for some time (favorite beer thread, etc.), but this confirms it: Metafilter has become a research marketing tool for wily corporate statisticians.

Resist the urge!

Grape Nuts: neither grapes, nor nuts. Discuss.

Nothing beats a good Macadamia Nut. My first: in sixth grade--many years ago--my teacher brought a jar back to San Francisco from her Christmas trip home to Hawaii. Each kid got one macadamia nut to savor, slowly.

What's worse, that we talk about nuts so much? Or that someone searches to see how much we talk about nuts.
