“In 2012 Americans ate more almonds per capita than shelled and unshelled snack peanuts combined (not including peanut butter).” Almonds are great — especially in milk form — but what the fuck is wrong with you America?
Nuts, properly ranked (updated for 2014):
11. pine nuts
10. regular walnuts
5. brazil nuts
4. macadamia nuts
2. black walnuts
But I suppose this new development does reflect, in its way, our particularly American way of privileging mediocrity, and who can fault, like, American values?
