Well, technically I believe peanuts are beans, not nuts.
However, I love them both.

But I like almond butter better than peanut butter. No idea which might have more health benefits, but I know nuts in general have way more calories than most people think!

Has to be almonds, since peanuts aren't nuts...

Both are "good" for me. Well as long as you don't have allergies that would be "bad".

Almonds of course. A few years ago did look it up, so call me a cheat

What's "good for you" changes by the minute. If you're allergic to peanuts, the answer is obvious, though.

Driving around in northern CA, I couldn't believe how many almond trees they had. Geeze!

Beer Nuts.


I'd assume almonds, although I eat enough of both to be covered just in case.

Almonds, my husband and I are gluten free. So we eat lots of almond flour.

Almonds are healthier than peanuts. But peanuts are legumes, so it is a trick question.
Walnuts are evidently the healthiest nut of all.
I like all nuts: a good quality can of mixed nuts is heaven! Someone once gave me a can of southern boiled peanuts, which I had never even heard of. Wonderful!

That occasional Brazil nut will pack you full of all the selenium you need too! I won't mention what my grand dad called that type of nut. He was a nut.

Brazil nuts are definitely the outliers in the can of nuts. I'll bet they are not even from Brazil.

I like filberts. Perhaps I like to say the word better than eat the nut. Filberts.

I know that too, I used to call them that, don't really know why, it's what everyone called them..

I love nuts. Brazils are my favorite.
Peanuts have to be better for you than almonds. I don't care if the almond growers say different.
