Pistachio Trivia and Fun Facts Quiz

Can You Crack This Pistachio Quiz?

Happy Friday — and World Pistachio Day! Since the year began, pistachios have literally been popping up everywhere in San Francisco. And while I've always loved to eat them, I realized I don't know much about their existence at all.

Upon further research, I discovered some pretty entertaining facts about these nuts. For instance, in China, they're known as the "Happy Nut." Another trivia tidbit: they're enjoyed with an apéritif in France, but favored with a cold one in Russia. What else is there to know about the grand pistachio? See if you can nail the rest of the fun facts when you take this quiz.
