I like almonds because they can give me calcium, which I need as a lactose intolerant.

Here's something I read about pistachios yesterday. Made me a bit turned off by them:

Anyway...

I know these aren't nuts but I prefer eating "corn nuts".. It looks like corn but they're slightly bigger and dried, roasted and salted.

If I had to stick to the list, it'd be pecans...

Almonds hands down.

I like them 3 ways. Raw. Almond milk and almond butter.

FYI, everyone needs calcium, not just those who are lactose intolerant.

Roasted almonds, drenched in salt and a bit of pepper

cashews.. so good

Pistachios and cashews are probably my favorite to just eat by themselves, but almonds and pecans are incredibly versatile and I probably eat far more of them in various things than I eat the other two.

@thegerg: Um... ok (don't understand what you think you were trying to accomplish here)

#8 Edited by Trail_Mix (2579 posts) -

Roasted pecans are where it's at.

I also like cashews though.

The dairy industry has done an amazing job hood-winking people into believing that they need the calcium from milk to avoid bone diseases. If that was true, why is America one of the leaders in cases of osteoporosis and hip fractures in the elderly when we are one of the leading consumers of milk and dairy products? Does this make sense? Most of the calcium you consume does not go into the bones. Bones need much more than just one mineral. A well balanced diet consisting of real food items such as whole vegetables especially dark leafy greens, coupled with strength training and generally being active will combat these bone issues exponentially more than drinking one or two glasses of milk a day.

That being said...I voted for macadamias!!!

Is there a medical reason for this absurd pedantry of yours?

Peanuts.

now i want some salted peanuts.

Walnuts, I just cant. I could eat them, but shortly after I just want to spit them out. Samething with pecans, if they're plain and by them selves.

I like all the other nuts tho.

Pistachios. Specifically, Wonderful brand.

Curse you for that link. I knew the nasty tasting ones have/had worms in them, but seeing them there = never again.

I voted for almonds. They were and are a big part of my diet.

I love almonds

#16 Posted by Tqricardinho (341 posts) -

Ohh pistachios... me and my godfather used to eat dozens of those at weekends.

I'm torn between cashews and peanuts, can't get enough of both. But I find myself leaning toward cashews because they're expensive therefore I really can't get enough of them lol

#18 Posted by cain006 (8625 posts) -

Cashews are easily my favorite to eat by themselves. I like peanuts for cooking with other stuff though.

#19 Posted by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

Cashews are my favorite.

#20 Posted by SaintLeonidas (26632 posts) -

Almonds.

#21 Posted by nait2k4 (79 posts) -

Gotta be peanuts, such versatility.

Honey roasted peanuts with extra salt, or salted caramel peanuts. Mmmm, heart disease.

24 votes... gamefaqs' current events had 100 votes. It must be more popular a forum than gamespot's off-topic. I wonder why.

#23 Posted by Namgis (3591 posts) -

Or there's more people here who could care less about nuts and want no part of voting?

#24 Edited by culture_den (216 posts) -

That's shocking to hear, but understandable.

#25 Edited by Sword-Demon (6970 posts) -

tough choice between pistachios and cashews, but cashews win

#26 Posted by ArmoredCore55 (23864 posts) -

No offense to anyone but it could be some form of autism.

Cashew > Pistachio > Brazil Nut > Walnut > the rest

#30 Posted by HuggyBear1020 (456 posts) -

Whichever kind deez are

#31 Posted by shellcase86 (1934 posts) -

Pretty much all of the above, especially Pistachios and Almonds. They're all delicious. It's a shame nuts are soooooooooo expensive. I wonder if I can grow my own.

#32 Posted by Ugalde- (3653 posts) -

Cashews first, almonds second.

#33 Posted by culture_den (216 posts) -

I can't believe I forgot to mention brazil nuts in the topic, I had quite a story about them too, quite the history with them.
