(yes the pose was her idea. extra points if you can read what her hat says.)
The facts: We (the royal we. the researched we) consume less of foods which require work on our part to shove into our nut-hole consume.
The numbers: When pistachio-studied we (don yer crowns! again the royal we.) tend to eat FORTY ONE PERCENT fewer of the green nuts when we have to shell versus having them pre-shelled for us.
The snack: We (the entire MizFit household Im not dragging you into this one) love these. There are 49 in a serving which is both a bountiful snack and a fab opportunity for the Tornado to practice her pre-school counting skillz.
The memories: Lets just say we (OK I) were addicted to these as a child as well. I gave not a shit care they stained my fingers bright red (remember that?!) except for the fact it made it more of a challenge to deny the fact I’d consumed the whole bag/less easy to blame aforementioned consumption on my sisters.
I rediscovered my green nut love at Blissdom:
(that’s my shell-debris & Joyce pretending the stuffed bunny is consuming nuts too. it was funny that day. you’ll have to take my word for it. we were tired.)
And it has been raging ever since.
Ive smuggled em into movies.
Ive toted em with me to playdates at the park.
Ive cooked with them (ok that’s a lie. Got any good pistachio recipes for me?)
Ive dragged Ren Man & the Tornado into my love as well (there’s been a little dissension in the ranks. They *adore* the salt & pepper green nuts. Im a hardcore PLAIN misfit).
This post today is purely to share my smittennessment & remind you of a snack I’d somehow forgotten.
**This post is in no way shape or form sponsored by the aforementioned nut which is green, the green nut farmers or the distant’ older, much maligned cousin: the dyed red green nut.
Before you skip off to continue your friday I wanna know:
Am I alone in having not consumed these since they were produced wearing their random red coat?
Are you a Green Nut Lovah who has a recipe (for anything. Im easy that way) to bestow upon me as this is our ‘recipe’ thus far created by the Tornado:
Are you as excited as I am I discovered these single serving packs last weekend at COSTCO! (Im renown for lacking in nut-moderation):
