From the archives of Rob Cockerham…
I found this one interesting because I’ve always wondered about the breakdown of all the nuts inside a can of mixed nuts. (Haven’t you?)
Here is Rob’s one-of-a-kind look at just what goes inside a can of mixed nuts…
Rob’s Cockeyed website is one of my favorites.
I especially like his “How Much Is Inside?” column, where he takes everyday, normal items and delves deeper to see exactly what is inside.
This one is a classic.
Ever wonder how many of each different type of nut is actually inside a can of mixed nuts?
Well, here’s your answer: There are 371 nuts in an 11.5 ounce can, and 253½ of them are peanuts.
Here’s the breakdown:
- Peanuts – 253½ (67%)
- Almonds – 76 (20%)
- Cashews – 21½ (6%)
- Hazelnuts – 9 (2%)
- Pecans – 8 (2%)
- Brazil Nuts – 8 (2%)
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
