Great quiz! I'd make it Answer in Order though, otherwise it's easy to just enter every nut you've heard of without knowing what they look like :)

Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut. Pine nut, which is a nut, but it's also the name of a town. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut.

I can't believe I typed in fluffernutter.

Best in Show...great flick

Harlan Pepper, would you stop naming nuts? I had Christopher Guest's voice in my head throughout this whole quiz. I'm glad that other people did too.
May 24th, 2011 at 17:15 GMT
So that's what a macadamia looks like!
May 24th, 2011 at 17:50 GMT
Peanuts are legumes.
May 24th, 2011 at 18:27 GMT
Macadamia nut... what a mouthful ;)
May 24th, 2011 at 20:27 GMT
The third and fifth in the top row seem to be transposed (ie. third is labelled fifth's name and vice versa)

You're missing donuts.

I had to try the alternate name for brazil nut just to see. It wasn't accepted by the way...
May 26th, 2011 at 01:08 GMT
Don't knock acorns. The Germans roasted them to make ersatz coffee during WWII, and I've actually got a bottle of modern coffee substitute, with acorns as the largest ingredient. Just haven't summoned up the courage to try it.
May 26th, 2011 at 01:45 GMT
@kirsten: Nope, those are correct, though the nuts do look similar once the shells are removed.
@slamb: I knew that was coming despite the comment I put in the directions above the image.
@trivial (and a general comment): I'm open to legitimate suggestions for alternate names for nuts.

That bottom right seems to sharp to eat.

What the **** is a candlenut??? Hell, it's not even recognized by spellcheck!
May 12th, 2012 at 16:21 GMT
Acorns are culinary nuts?
May 12th, 2012 at 16:25 GMT
aww nuts! i only got 10.
May 12th, 2012 at 16:55 GMT
i only got nine and never heard of 3 of them
May 12th, 2012 at 17:21 GMT
no beer nuts?
May 12th, 2012 at 17:37 GMT
Fun fact: Brazil was named after the Brazil nut.
May 12th, 2012 at 17:57 GMT
"Gingko" is an alternate spelling of ginkgo and should be accepted.
May 12th, 2012 at 18:02 GMT
Im a nut for these type of quizzes.
May 12th, 2012 at 18:05 GMT
the pecan nut looks kind of like a mini hotdog.
May 12th, 2012 at 18:19 GMT
@Ravenclaw - Acorns can be used to make coffee, as in Germany in WWII when coffee beans were embargoed. The German word for acorn is "ersatz" and is used in English to mean fake or second rate
May 12th, 2012 at 18:21 GMT
It should accept pinon for pine nut.
May 12th, 2012 at 18:54 GMT
Good quiz but perhaps you could make it so you have to answer in order to make it slightly more challenging.
May 12th, 2012 at 18:56 GMT
I wouldn't really want to eat that chestnut.
May 12th, 2012 at 19:43 GMT
@save_ferris15: no, it was named for the Brazilwood tree, which was used to make a dye. @Ravenclaw, Teary-Ennui, there are parts of France where acorns were the primary staple food. When the right acorns are processed correctly, you get a kind of flour that can be used to make something like a bread.

Harlan Pepper are you in there naming nuts?
May 12th, 2012 at 22:00 GMT
I failed to answer one of Nutella's ingredients.
May 12th, 2012 at 22:12 GMT
This is like porn for squirrels!
May 13th, 2012 at 01:19 GMT
Peanut. I missed peanut.
May 13th, 2012 at 01:42 GMT
The peanut is not really a nut at all. It's a legume, more closely related to a bean.
May 13th, 2012 at 02:07 GMT
I'm quite picky with nuts. I like peanuts, almond, and pistachio nuts, but I absolutely hate chestnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, and cashews.
May 13th, 2012 at 03:41 GMT
Why did the squirrel have to eat his way home? He was stuck in acorn maze!
May 13th, 2012 at 04:20 GMT
@WyattsTorch: My mum puts ground candlenuts in curries as a thickening agent/to make it more 'rich'. I don't think you can eat them raw.
May 13th, 2012 at 07:28 GMT
I never knew you could eat acorns. I will give it a go this autumn though. Nice one fm. Is there no end to what you can learn on Sporcle?
May 13th, 2012 at 12:11 GMT
The Ginkgo Nut on the right looks like an ice cream cone.
May 13th, 2012 at 15:44 GMT
This really needs to be answered in order, otherwise it's just 'guess as many types of nut as you can think of' rather than an actual picture quiz.
