Ha, Bolivia produces more Brazil nuts than Brazil. Go figure!
Comment below threshold:

I think the numbers at the start of the answer are a bit unnecessary, but good quiz otherwise.
Dec 29th, 2010 at 06:03 GMT
this is a tough quiz - lots of these are all over the map.
Dec 29th, 2010 at 10:15 GMT
The figure for Italy in Hazelnuts is 11,841, which is less than the next one down at 29,030. I think you left off a digit. Good quiz!
Dec 29th, 2010 at 12:39 GMT
Italy is corrected, yes it was a missing digit only. (ranking was correct). I also took another's advise and eliminated the numbers for those answers required but I left them on the bonus answers. I did try to include answers so we would indeed get spread all over the map. More fun, more interesting, more to learn (I like to learn something from doing these quizes) and yes ...more difficult!
Dec 29th, 2010 at 13:17 GMT
Oh, and regarding Brazil Nuts, I wasn't going to include that category since only 4 nations are listed in the entire world but when i saw Bolivia outpaced Brazil ...it's one of those interesting facts that are fun to learn, it made the cut!
Dec 29th, 2010 at 13:24 GMT
In Brazil, they're just called nuts ;-)
Dec 29th, 2010 at 16:06 GMT
The results for this quiz look all weird for me. tomahaha, do you have all of the listed bonuses at the end of the quiz or do you have them placed throughout the quiz? That can throw the results of the quiz off. Maybe its just my computer. But really good quiz that has countries all over the world
Dec 29th, 2010 at 16:24 GMT
Not sure what you are asking? I have 1 or 2 bonus answers for each category. My guess is you are looking at the results only? When grouping like this, it does seem to throw off results. But to group by category and have bonuses in line for each, the results might get a bit off due to the nature of how it has to be done. (as far as I know how to arrange it anyways)
Dec 29th, 2010 at 16:26 GMT
This is pretty cool. Everything is spread out. So many of them are like taking a handful of darts and throwing them all at once.
Dec 29th, 2010 at 16:39 GMT
That was the idea! and regarding the results, I looked at them and it is odd to say the least? It has some nations at 0% yet also has them listed elsewhere at higher percentages while the bonus answers are (of course) not listed at all. It has something to do with the groupings. The quiz is working just fine, simply ignore those goofy stats and all is good.
Dec 29th, 2010 at 17:10 GMT
OK, this is driving me nuts (hahaha, get it?) Any quiz designers that can help me out would be great. Again, the quiz itself is working perfect so this is a minor issue but I strive for perfection if possible. Can any answer why the results are all off as they are? Here's how I did the quiz (and others like it) I lay each group out so each category has the exact same name in the hint column (Brazil Nuts) and then I check the box asking to group answers with the same hint. That puts the groups in order as you see here. So why are the results messed up? Does it maybe have to do with using extra column (production numbers in this quiz). Any help would be appreciated since I want it as good as can be possible. But PLEASE don't think the quiz answers are compromised, it IS working quite well!
Dec 29th, 2010 at 17:24 GMT
If the answers are dodgy, it may be about where the bonus answers are. Put all the bonus answers with ee at the end of the quiz, not after each section. It should work then (hopefully) Also for Chestnuts, Japan is a bonus answer and it says it's 5th, yet there are are already 5 answers on there, should it be 6th?? Hope that helps
Dec 29th, 2010 at 17:25 GMT
Yeah, the quiz is great, but the results page is really whacked out. 4/5 globes
Dec 29th, 2010 at 17:29 GMT
But if I add bonuses at the very end, they will not show up in the category. Say Japan is 6th in Chestnuts (I will fix that thanks) then it will end up showing under the last category (Walnuts here). My guess is it's a choice of having the quiz operate best or have the results post best, I will choose operation over results any day! Adding bonuses to the end will lump everything under Chestnuts and that would be just a horrible quiz!
Dec 29th, 2010 at 18:36 GMT
Add the bonuses at the very end of the quiz. I've always been told that if the bonuses are scattered about the quiz data the results will be off and messed up. Put the "type of nut" in the first column, the "answer" in the second column, and "ee" in the third column.
If the first column is the same as the category you want the bonus to show up for, I'm pretty sure it will show up underneath the correct category
Dec 29th, 2010 at 19:31 GMT
OK, seems to work. I had the bonuses at the end of each category. Lets see if this clears up the data? It may take some time since it was started the other way? But again, thanks for understanding ...the quiz is fine!
Dec 29th, 2010 at 19:59 GMT
I am having a problem with a bunch of these - Bolivia does not show at all under Brazil nuts, for me. Greece is listed for pistachios with the number 8100, which should put it ahead of Afghanistan and Tunisia. Algeria is listed as a bonus twice. The idea is great, however, and I look forward to playing again when it is cleaned up. @tomahaha: I appreciate the effort you are making to turn this into a completely functioning quiz.
Dec 29th, 2010 at 20:27 GMT
I will check all issues, my guess right now is you took the quiz at the exact time the changes were fixed. I notice you mentioned Bolivia not being there, that lasted all of about 1 minute (right when you took it!)
Dec 29th, 2010 at 20:31 GMT
Yep, all are fixed, you simply have REALLY bad timing! (and I did the changes real quick!)
Dec 30th, 2010 at 08:54 GMT
So apparently, thats not the reason theyre called Jordan Almonds.
Dec 30th, 2010 at 13:23 GMT
Right now only 75% of people answer Brazil. That means that 25% of people don't think there is any chance Brazil Nuts come from Brazil. That is kind of sad.
Dec 30th, 2010 at 14:43 GMT
@tomahaha: My bad luck then. I took it now and it seems to be fine!
Dec 30th, 2010 at 15:19 GMT
You know something's not right when Bolivia makes more Brazil nuts than Brazil.
Dec 30th, 2010 at 18:22 GMT
It's a whacky world isn't it!?
Jan 3rd, 2011 at 14:19 GMT
Very good quiz. I like the title you gave it, makes one want to click on it and see what's it all about.
Jan 3rd, 2011 at 19:06 GMT
sorry tomahaha. I beat you to this one http://www.sporcle.com/games/Flick/nutsfun It is interesting to see how the countries have changed though. My data was 2005.
Jan 3rd, 2011 at 19:46 GMT
and I did do a check! I didn't see yours, at least it's a a bit different with newer data and bonuses for each category. But if I had seen yours, I would not have done this one! Doesn't drive you nuts (pun intended) when you see this one has been played so many more times? Yours was pretty much the same darned thing!
Jan 3rd, 2011 at 20:27 GMT
wow - Iran is a shocker!
Jan 3rd, 2011 at 20:46 GMT
no probs tomahaha you deserve the plaudits. You certainly have put heck of a lot of work into this one and produced a great game.
Jan 4th, 2011 at 13:08 GMT
good quiz, five globes :) for originality :D
Jan 4th, 2011 at 18:24 GMT
I did better than expected. I guess as a psychologist, I know my nuts.
Jan 7th, 2011 at 02:34 GMT
@tomahaha: You need an apostrophe in "world's" in the quiz's title. Technically, you should also have a hyphen connecting "nut-producing." This distinguishes countries that are top producers of nuts from countries which are producers of top nuts.
Jan 10th, 2011 at 03:33 GMT
How is Kyrgyzstan not an answer on this quiz? In all seriousness, the world's largest natural/wild forest of walnut trees is in Kyrgyzstan.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 00:37 GMT
I was getting desperate when I typed Azerbaijan... I was already hitting backspace when it was accepted.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 09:39 GMT
The bonus answer of 'Algeria' has 2 opening brackets - be ashamed.
Jan 24th, 2011 at 08:49 GMT
I don't believe the Chinese Chestnut number. No way is such a large, perfectly round number accurate, especially in light of the fact that it is exponentially greater than the next runner-up, and the fact that it is the only totally round number out of a list which is not at all rounded.
Feb 4th, 2011 at 15:33 GMT
Complain to the UN. I am sure the numbers are of course estimates and they likely had a lot less to go on with the Chinese estimate. However, if you have seen many of these food production quizes you would know China is at or near the top in almost every category. With a gazillion people and a large range of climates, they of course dominate most charts, with that in mind, it is no surprise they are so high here as well.

whew, 15 seconds less and I'd've missed Cote d'Ivoire, rendering my score 46/48.
