Transcript: The Best Nut
Five rounds left; there’s still a chance to win. Let’s get nutty. Ten different types. Pecans are the chart topper followed by walnuts, the healthiest nuts on the planet. First off, what's this one at the end. It's not quite in iceberg lettuce land but it should be embarrassed to call itself a nut. Which is it?
Of the remaining eight which is the least healthy? How many say almonds suck??? Brazil nuts? Who says cashews? Hazelnuts? Macadamia nuts? Peanuts? Pinenuts? And finally Pistachios? And the winning loser nut is pine nuts.
So pecans and walnuts up here; pine nuts down here. I would have guessed almonds would have been three, but no, #5. So which are these? You pick a nut and if it’s either number 3 or 4 you get to stay in the game. So which is healthiest? Brazil nuts? Cashews? Hazelnuts? Macadamias? Peanuts? And Pistachios?
If you said peanuts, you’re wrong. If you said cashews you’re even wronger. Not macadamias or Brazil nuts. The top five healthiest nuts are pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts—also called filberts, pistachios, and almonds. Nuts are so packed with antioxidants they’re adding nut powders to meat to keep it from spoiling longer.
