For eating plain, cashews...

But for baking, definitely walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts & pecans.

I like the Blue Diamond Smoke house almonds for a snack, salty and good. Love dark chocolate covered almonds too.

1) Roasted lightly salted Almonds, and Pecans. Especially from a few orchards I recall stopping by in the Southwest near Arizona ./ New Mexico border. Delicious!

2) Walnuts, Cashews too though I cannot eat as many as the above.

3) Peanuts (our legume goobers), Pistachios.

As added note previous poster mentioned toxic quality to unroasted Cashews the history of the development of the Almond is fascinating also as many were toxic (hydrogen Cyanide) to human consumption before becoming domesticated.

I like plain cashews for snacking.

I like macadamia nuts by themselves not only for snacking, but also in treats like cookies and candies, especially covered in chocolate.

I bought a box of macadamia nuts covered in chocolate. It was amazing! 20 pieces for $9 at hershey park. It was milk chocolate too, which made it even better. Dark chocolate is too bitter but for some reason they always use it for covering nuts and other higher end foods. IMHO, macadamia is too light a nut to be covered with dark chocolate.

I agree. Dark chocolate has its place - I'm just glad when that place isn't near anything I like to eat.
