Guilty Pleasures: Pub Nuts

7 Mar

Bliss. Pure bliss.

Not much to say about this guilty pleasure. Beer and nuts are a marriage made in the pub.  There are few finer pleasures than those found in a warm pub on a cold winter’s day (or a cool beer-garden on a summer’s day…).  A a pint of tasty beer, your best mates and a big bowl of nuts.

Simple joy.

There really isn’t a nut I don’t love:  the chilli cashew, the sweet almond, the spicy wasabi or the humble dry-roasted peanut, heroes all.  

A footnote to my love-note to nuts is just a thank you. A thank you for the nuts that have soaked up the alcohol on those impromptu boozey school nights when I have skipped dinner and drunk my body weight. Were it not for your nutty brilliance, my hangovers would have been killers. I owe you so much. Thank you.
