Match the Nut Shell to the Nut!

Unless you have an adverse reaction to eating nuts, chances are they play a significant role in your regular diet. Nuts are not only satisfying, but they're also a natural source of protein.

To honor the fact that today is National Nut Day, I'm going to see how well you know your nuts. Here's the deal: I'll flash a picture of a nut shell, and I want you to guess which type of nut it is. Are you ready to go nuts? Let's begin!

5/5...woot! Though I've only seen pecans in shells that are more red than brown and shiny, not the dull dark brown ones in the photo.

Love your quizzes, but not liking this new format...I'm on dial-up and waiting twice for each question takes a lot(!) of time.
