Your Favorite Non-Nut

I know this is shocking to most people in fact this startling news fact may rewrite your entire snack history but a peanut is not a nut. It is a legume it belongs to the same family that beans do..that is all.

This fact does not change my love for them but good to know. Why do we call them nuts then? Where does this misinformation come from?

Legume shlegume ... Maybe a peanut is the nut and all those other things are the pretenders....

Do we call them nuts because they come from shells?

I guess this is a good thing to know in case it's a question on jeopardy, but other than that...I don't eat them so I'm putting that in my Random Facts books. Thx:)
