pistachios lovers....do you like 'em IN or OUT of the shell?

I LOVE pistachios, but find shelling them hurts my fingers. If I buy them pre-shelled, however, they COST way more and I find I eat a TON more.

What does the rest of the Pistachio lovers think...best to go with Shelled or Un-shelled?

I like them in the shell and with all of that yummy red dye on them.

I think they're $7.99 a pound here, minimum. It's really hard to pick between walnuts, almonds, pistachios and cashews these days since they're all relatively the same cost.

I love them both ways and strange enough I have found them cheaper pre-shelled. I get the natural green ones without the dye cause the red ones have seemed to vanished into thin air.

I like them in the shell better. Just like peanuts, it keeps me from eating quite as many as if they're shelled.

I like them in the shell, but I hate when I get ones that are almost all the way closed because then I have to work hard to open it

Actually, when you think of it, buying them preshelled is less. The shells take up the space of the bag as well, and some shells have no pistachios.

I prefer preshelled. It saves me time, effort, and shells are just damn annoying.

I like cracking them open with my teeth (I know it's bad for them) and sucking the salt off, so I normally go for shelled pistachios. However if there's a bag of unshelled pistachios I'll sit down and eat most of the bag.

I'm the same as Sam - crack them in my mouth and spit the shells out like sunflower seeds. (Funny, I had some this afternoon.) I'm the only one in my family who likes pistachios. I even like the ice cream and pudding, too.

Half the fun is getting them out of the shell for me!

I loved them... until I suddenly became allergic to them. I've been eating them for 19 years and then suddenly when I was 20 I went to this really cool pistachio farm in new mexico, bought a bag and spent my night over the toilet. It was awful. To be correct it was more than one night. I was sick for two days.
