This thread is NOT all about.....
Nuts, nutcakes, nutty people.
An exclamation of despair.
An exclamation of desire for something or someone.

This thread is all about.....
No poll is included, because there are so many types of nuts.
My favorites are pistachios and cashews. My guess is that many folks will pull the vote lever for those two types of nuts. Older Cyburbians probably recall when pistachios were always difficult to pry open. Cross-breeding of pistachio types has resulted in those easy-open pistachios that are so common now.
I know that when Iran was still friendly with the USA, most of the world's pistachios were grown in that country. California became a big player after the fall of the Shah of Iran. From what I read now, Iran has once again become the leader in pistachios (when they aren't busy not developing nukes).
Cashews are tasty, too. But expensive.
A container of mixed nuts is always an adventure.....especially if you don't pay a lot for that little can with the plastic lid. Cheapo cans have very few cashews. Pay a bit more and you will find more cashews.....and they are in a solid moon-shaped piece, not the tiny chopped crumbs common in the less-expensive cans.
I also like almonds, Spanish peanuts and regular in-the-shell peanuts. If you are ever in Toledo inner-ring suburb Maumee, stop in at Dale's Bar. This popular sports bar has a tradition that all the shells from your basket of peanuts are to be thrown on the floor. Barmaids will even come over to your table and dump any that you may have placed on the table or on a plate.
Side-note: Nuts are considered a health food. Cool!
So......I ask that Cyburbians come out of their shell and let us know about their favorite nuts. What say you?
