Favorite: Pistachios, with almonds closing in for close second. I love almost all nuts, though.

I love pecans and cashews, too, but in more limited applications. Hazelnuts are good, but not as versatile as some of the others. Macadamia are good, but I only really eat them in white chocolate chunk cookies. I love walnuts for baking, and will sometimes grind them up in pesto, as well. Black walnut ice cream is one of my favorites. But I don't usually just snack on walnuts, I like it in things. Peanuts are okay, but never my first pick, and the ones I'm most likely to pick around in a mix. I do love peanut butter, though. Brazil nuts, I can take or leave. I used to love them, but I don't, so much, anymore.

Much as I like nuts in baked goods, I'm really fond of using them as savory ingredients. I top salads with them, throw handfuls of raw almonds into smoothies, add them to stirfries, toast nuts and top pasta with a cream sauce with them, etc.

Thanks for making the poll in such a way that I could make multiple selections.

I chose peanuts, macadamia nuts, walnuts, and hazelnuts.
I like them in chocolate or plain (with salt)-I don't cook with them.

Almonds & pecans are okay on occasion, I don't bother with cashews or pistachios (no interest in trying pine nuts).

Wow, I can't relate to that at all. Won't even try them?

You forgot to include "My Boyfriend's".
Personally, I love them all. Except peanuts[which are actually legumes, I know]. YICK! But I can't live without peanut butter.XD

I like most. Pecans, almonds, pistachios, walnuts and cashews. I had Brazilian nuts and those were good. Don't like hazelnuts. Funny how years ago I never ate nuts and seeds but now I eat them regularly. I love almond butter with apples or on toast. It's good to have those health fats in your diet.

Right now I just eat the blue diamond smokehouse almonds. They are so salty, love them. I also like the dark chocolate covered almonds from Sees candy.

I like cashews and pistachio nuts too.

Hazelnuts.
But like you, I've never met a nut I didn't like. I gues walnuts would be next, followed by macadamia and then pistachio.
