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.

Peanuts are legumes, not nuts.

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'.

I have to go with pistachios and pecans. I like eating them just plain, but also cooking with them.

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.

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.

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.

Oops, my Tiara slipped!

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.

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?)
