    I’m having trouble getting some of these word plays lately. Makes me feel stupid. It seems that there have been more of them than there used to be.

    Why would the cashew not be a nut? It grows like other tree nuts. The almond also grows on a tree, but inside what amounts to a thin-skinned apricot. Walnuts grow inside a green sphere with butternut-staining juice.

    Maybe telling us half truth, the first part of their ads is certainly true, Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you dont.

    I beg to differ on the cashew. Almonds, they are indeed related to the apricot, peanuts are legumes. I have a deathly allergic reaction to TREE nuts, which includes cashews, walnuts, Brazil nuts.

    @Dry and Dusty

    While I’m sure you have an allergy to cashews, that by itself does not make them a “nut.”

    It may be considered a “nut” to those in the kitchen, but not to those in a science lab.

    From Wikipedia: “A nut is a fruit composed of a hard shell and a seed, where the hard-shelled fruit does not open to release the seed (indehiscent). So, while, in a culinary context, a wide variety of dried seeds are often called nuts, in a botanical context, only ones that include the indehiscent fruit are considered true nuts.”
    Some fruits and seeds that do not meet the botanical definition but are nuts in the culinary sense:
    Almonds are the edible seeds of drupe fruits — the leathery “flesh” is removed at harvest.
    Brazil nut is the seed from a capsule.
    Candlenut (used for oil) is a seed.
    Cashew is a seed.4
    Chilean hazelnut or Gevuina
    Horse-chestnut is an inedible capsule.
    Macadamia is a creamy white kernel (Macadamia integrifolia and Macadamia tetraphylla).
    Malabar chestnut
    Peanut is a seed and a legume of the family Fabaceae.
    Pine nut is the seed of several species of pine (coniferous trees).
    Pistachio is the seed of a thin-shelled drupe.

    It all depends on what definition of “nut” you are using. If you are referring to objects defined as “a perforated block, usually of metal that has an internal screw thread and is used on a bolt or screw for tightening or holding something” then a walnut isn’t a nut, either!
