Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist?
Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed.
For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?
I voted Macadamia, but only because you rubes left out the noble hazelnut/filbert.
Also, none of these are true nuts, botanically speaking. These are drupes, fruits, and legumes. Show me a filbert, chestnut, acorn, or beech nut.

Ditto. I love me some hazelnut.
What nothing for us with Nut Allergies!?!? Anyone listening out there or am I typing too Blind Eyes?
I like most nuts. But deez are for sure my fave.
Brazil nuts really ARE my favorite nut!
I do like Brazil nuts (and most others) but PECANS are by far my favorite.
Peanuts are legumes, not nuts.

Me too! I always get made fun of, but I also get to eat them out of all my friends' mixed nut cans
You guys really messed up.
1. Brazil (by far)
If there's one thing the show "Friends" taught me (in the "what if" episode when Monica is fat and dates the Dr. guy) it's the Brazil Nut is actually masquerading as a nut when it is actually a seed. Thank Buddha for TV for my learnin'.
The nuts who run this site
Hickory. Tough to crack, but worth the trouble.
Hey, where're the walnuts? I like walnuts and pecans!

Agree. Where's the pecans
Anyone have information on which is the healthy ones and how each of them are?
I voted pistachio, but cashew would be a close second. And nothing beats boiled peanuts!!
I love 'em all. You are what you eat, y'know...

That's my list as well!! :D
Another vote for Pecans!
My son. He's such a nut/goof.
I love all nuts including Brazil(there's never enough of them in the can) but i guess my list would go like this
my family(we're all nuts in a lovable way)
pecan(which i pronounce pacon to sound fancy)
Not on the list...

Ya made me laugh!
I have to go with pistachios and pecans. I like eating them just plain, but also cooking with them.
All I could think about when I saw this poll: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGmNqzbsuiY
I am a Tim Ferriss acolyte so I eat a few raw Brazil nuts every morning and every night because they are packed with selenium. No, they are not as delicious as almonds, cashews, peanuts (to which I am alarmingly addicted) but they do the job (fuel me for testosterone production) better than anything else.

Hey, that's what I do! We should be friends. I dig them out of the Planters mixed nut canister! Brazil nuts RULE!

I actually do like Brazil Nuts, although they're not my favorite. Cashews are great tasting, but the least healthy of all the nuts, so I try to avoid them.
A peanut is not a nut it's A legume.

EXACTLY! How was it that Pine nuts made the list and Pecans weren't listed? I'm offended! I had to put my vote for Brazil Nut - raspberries to the skewed results of this now invalid woot! poll *thppppppt!*
I love brazil nuts.
My grandmother liked them and during the holidays there would be a large bowl of nuts on the table with a nut cracker. Brazil nuts were the hardest to crack and the last ones left, my grandmother would offer me a nickel (a lot of money in the late 60's) for every nut I would open for her. I figured if they were that hard to get to they must be good and developed a taste for them.
True Story Bro.
When we get a tub of mixed nuts from Costco I immediately go for the brazil nuts, my husband thinks i'm crazy.
Where's the damn pecans!?
Peanut is a legume, not a nut. Pistachio is a drupe, not a nut. How can your favorite nut not be a nut? Yeah, it's just silly . . . depends on who defines the terms, and who bothers to listen to them.

That's what I was going to say...
Cashews, pecans, hazel/filbert (so good it gets two names), almonds and walnuts.
(I am surprised the guys haven't mentioned their favorite "nuts", just sayin'. Or are those comments getting deleted?)
When I saw this list, I couldn't help but smile and remember "Best In Show."
