On the other hand, peanuts are kinda lame. This nut mix brags that it has "less than 50% peanuts", but that may only be accurate if the true measure is 49.999%. They are like sand on a vast beach: Thousands of particles that obscure access to the pretty shells beneath. Dig as you must with your index finger for that macadamia, and it will sink below the weight of "thousands" of shifting peanuts. (In this analogy, the peanut skins are seaweed). Anyway, peanuts don't taste great alone unless they are candied, and they are most definitely obstructing access to my precious pecans.
Also, I really don't like filberts/Brazil nuts. Why are these even in the mix? They are 3 times as large as the peanut and they are bitter. Why not go with walnuts? If the peanut is any clue, I'd guess that the filbert is simply inexpensive and bulky. (Driftwood, do you suppose?)
The lesson here is that you get what you pay for. There are cans of premium nuts, sans peanuts and filberts. I should just spring for the $3 extra dollars and save myself the minor grief of biting into another lame-o peanut.
