But on a serious note, pistachios are a good nut. Not as good as Brazil nuts… or filberts (aka hazelnuts for all you weirdos out there)… Or pecans. Pecans are great nuts. But just on their own. Not in desserts. I can’t stand candied pecans.
Pistachios also lose out to the walnut. Can’t beat a good walnut.
Oh, and don’t forget about macadamia nuts. Those are an exquisite Hawaiian treat.
So let’s review: pistachios are better than peanuts, cashews… they barely beat out almonds. But they do beat almonds. I guess that covers all the major nuts.
