Nuts (edible) on EK

I am the only one who eats the cashews and peanuts and leaves the almonds and pistachios ?
It seems not, as I see many dishes returned with those uneaten...

By the way, I have never seen peanuts in the mix as mentioned by Silverswimmer. Only pistachios, almonds, cashews and macadamias

Iím a huge fan of the nuts served onboard by Emirates in F and J! Theyíre a special edition of Crunch-Os that are sadly not sold in supermarket. I find them to be the best quality nuts served by any airline.

I donít know why they donít serve the same nuts in the DXB F and J lounges. The ones there the (the almond/cashew mix) taste a bit too oily for me.

They are in the Melbourne (AUS) EK lounge.

No macadams in my J & F flights out of DXB last week-just the usual mix including some halved peanuts.

Pretty slow time on the EK sub forum these days when nuts can create this much interest.

Wonder of the absence of a former serial poster has something to do with that.

Never studied the contents, just wolf them down.

I'll take a huge bowl of nuts compared to the meals I had in economy Thursday The pizza AND the scrambled eggs were completely flavorless. In 2017 the food was fairly good. What's going on with them?
