Yes, you should tell him that you have taken a poll of the most stylish guys on the Internet and they have validated your nut choice!!!

That should shut him up.

I love all nuts, but if I have to pick a fave, it's the cashew. And, cashew butter is superb!

Sometimes, you feel like a nut; sometimes, you don't.

I vote for pistachios followed by walnuts and pecans.

Don't really care for cashews, but that's just me.

Oh - and your friend's statement was just stupid.

The macadamia is just so awesome I sometimes wonder why people even bother with lesser nuts.

It's the richest nut(and priciest), when you split one in half it just oozes oil. MMMMMMMMMMM

I'm sure it's possible to serve "tacky nuts" at a party --perhaps cheep 'beer nuts' at a high end affair, or peanuts in the shell with no receptacle for the shucked shells.

However, setting out the classics is always acceptable, and in my book a wonderful idea. A few roasted and salted cashews to accompany a whiskey or cocktail is a perenial favorite.

As others have pointed out, if you want to "take it up a notch" you can "dress up" your nuts by doing a little prep work. Additionally, you can find "pre--dressed" nuts, like roasted Spanish almonds with rosemary that are a hit at any party. This is one way of serving nuts without serving simple "mixed nuts" from a 10 lb. Costco tub.

As others have pointed out, the only "tacky nut" here was the fellow who spoke out of line to his host!

Pine nuts don't get enough love. They tend to be used only for cooking but I think they're good to eat straight. They are also quite expensive -- not as expensive as macadamias -- if you want to flaunt your wealth.

I am surprised that there hasn't been that much jibber-jabber over my nut rankings.

I also wanted to make a joke about tacky nuts and exercising, but I stopped myself.

Heh. Just don't use steroids when you exercise, or you end up with tiny tacky nuts.

Almonds. I also vote for not insulting the host of they party (spurious reason or no). Unfortunatley, my fiancee is deathly allergic to tree nuts. It's a bit of a bummer.

You mean to tell me little bite-sized weiners impaled on a toothpick isn't manly?
