I love roasted and salted, but excess salt has been implicated in all sorts of terrible health outcomes and the food corporations put way too much of it in because it's addictive and pads their profits at the expense of everyone's health. So the solution is to buy unsalted roasted nuts (unfortunately not that easy to find in many places) and add a tiny bit of salt yourself.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

I chose raw. I don't mind a trace of salt, but usually they way overdo the salt. For peanuts, I prefer to get a bag of roasted/unsalted in the shell, but for shelled nuts I usually get raw.

Most I like salted and roasted but I do keep a 3# bag of raw unsalted English Walnuts on hand from Sam's. My wife uses them in place of Pecans in cooking and baking. I eat them plain or with a small chunk of dark chocolate.

Unclear. Doctor said the tests show I was less sensitive to some but advised to avoid all of them.

Question may be phrased improperly.

I prefer lightly salted.

But I buy unsalted and raw for my health.

I agree. Nuts are usually oversalted.

Roasted, If lightly salted isn't an option then unsalted

Nut part, meh. Chocolate covered? yes.

I would also accept candied or glazed, or coated, like MMs or Jordan almonds.

I also enjoy cashews and pistachios.

Cashews either roasted salted or honey roasted once in a while to mix it up.

I’m on a high salt diet and crave salt like crazy. I’d like a ratio of something like 25% salt to 75% nuts. The problem is that added salt won’t stick once the nuts cool. I love all kinds of nuts, but primarily eat almonds, pistachios, and walnuts.

Marcona almonds are among my very favorites. I love the almonds that are covered in "almond butter or cookie butter" or covered in a ghost pepper crusty material. I eat lots of nuts.

Fritz,

You missed an option. Boiled. Tried boiled peanuts once while in Florida. Just as bad as baked beans. Blech!

RM, you need to add mustard to your baked beans!

And buy the least sweet brand. (Or make.)
