Yesterday I bought a big bag of these.
I remember having nuts like these around during the holidays when I was younger. I mentioned that to Brian, and he had similar memories of nuts as well. I thought it would be fun to buy some and let our kids share in the experience. The only problem was that we didn't have a nutcracker. We stopped at several stores on our way home to look for a nutcracker. Brian went in search of the nutcracker while I picked up a few other things. He looked everywhere in at least 3 stores to no avail. No nutcracker. Tonight we stopped at Walmart to pick up a couple of things. When we were done we walked over to the kitchen supplies where I picked up this.
He started to laugh.
Turns out he was looking for this...
And then it was my turn to laugh. I'm still laughing. Hahahahahahaha...
OK...editing to add another picture I found of a tree bowl nutcracker set.
This one has a clearer picture of the nutcracker in the middle of the back with a pick on each side. Hope this helps...and I'm still laughing!
