Rank your favorite nuts!

From an old thread I started a while back (What’s your favorite nut? ), This Post would serve as a summary of the polling.
Use the list if you like, but include your own favorites (including peanuts!) in a ranking list (high to low preference).

Include as many as you really like.

My list (at the present moment – and subject to change):

  1. Pecan
  2. Pistachio
  3. Cashew
  4. Hazelnut/filbert
  5. Hickory nut (shagbark or scalybark)
  6. Macadamia
  7. Peanut (Yes, it’s a nut!)
  8. Almond
  9. Walnut
  10. Brazil nut
  11. there has to be another one I like – help!

If you could design your own Mixed Nuts sampler or can, what percentages of what nuts would be in it?

  1. Almonds: versatile, lower in fat than some, good smoked or roasted; also see almond paste and almond extract.
  2. Walnuts: great for baking and the oil is a good wood finishing product
  3. Peanuts: god help me, I love 'em
  4. Pecans: sweet goodness

Cashews and macadamia nuts, while good, get cloying pretty quickly for me.

The left one.
Oops, I mean:

  1. Macadamia
  2. Pecan (in a pie)
  3. Pistachio
  4. Walnut
  5. Hazelnut
  6. Brazil nut
  7. Peanut
  8. Pecan (not in a pie)
  9. Cashew
  10. Almond
  11. Chestnut
  12. Kola nut - don’t think I’ve ever seen one of these

Since I couldn’t think of a way to build a poll to accomplish it, after we have a reasonable sampling of preferences I’ll try to generate a “consensus ranking” of the replies, for whatever that might be worth.


In that order.

Be happy you have two! I know some guys who don’t! :slight_smile:

1.) Pecan
2.) Cashew
3.) Pistachio
4.) Macadamia
5.) Brazil Nut
6.) Almond
7.) Hazelnut
8.) Walnut
9.) Peanut

There aren’t any nuts that I dislike. Peanuts get really cloying after a while, though.

  1. Cashew
  2. Almond
  3. Peanut
  4. Pistachio
  5. Hazelnut
  6. Macadamia
  7. Walnut
  8. Pecan
  9. Brazil

How is ol’ Adolf these days?

Ought to be about done by now, right?

  1. Glen Beck
  2. Ann Coulter
  3. Sarah Palin
  4. That clerk in KY
  5. Rick Santorum
  6. Ted Cruz
  7. David Miscavage
  8. L. Ron Hubbard
  1. Dough
  2. Wal
  3. Pea
  4. Hazel
  5. Chest
  6. Wing
  7. Coco

Excellent twists on the concept!

I guess we could also look at:

Now you’ve done it. I have that ‘sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t’ jingle running through my brain.

  8. Almond
  9. Brazil

Top Five (in order)


This is the list so far. After we get to ten I’ll post the “composite” preferences.
