roasted, salted cashews and almonds for me, and lots of peanut butter of course. Sometimes pistachios, but not often.

Always have an almond mix; plain with wasabi and/or plain with smokehouse.
Will add another bag of either salted cashews or pistachios. Not a fan of peanuts or commercial mixed nut blends.
Oh, and a few sliced plain almonds to add to my breakfast oatmeal.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Used to be peanuts until I developed an allergy later in life. Now it's roasted, salted almonds. I eat them straight up, no fruit or chocolate.

Mixed with no peanuts. Roasted, unsalted.

Peanuts do not always sit well with me while hiking or doing something physical.

Walmart has them cheaper than Costco or any on-line source I found.

Almonds- they are tough, not broken when packed, and pack densely to fit in a bear can. I also like that they are not greasy, so my fingers do not get messy. I now also take a few dark chocolate covered almonds.
