That is a really difficult question, however it is a question and I have to pick one!!

I think I would pick almonds as walnuts sometimes have a bit of a strange, sweet taste, and almonds are crunchy and probably nicer to eat raw.

I use a lot of both in baking however almonds are crisper for a snack.

I love walnuts and I eat them raw everyday. For almonds, I prefer to soak them in water for couple of hours before I eat them. This is because is makes them easier to digest and unlocks access to many more nutrients.

I would have to say almonds out of these two choices. Now,had you put Macadamias into the mix,it would be extremely simple for me to choose!!
I like both walnuts and almonds but...would choose almonds I think

As a child, it was my 'job' to go by tram into 'town' to Basil's Coffee Shop & buy the ingredients' Mum had written down to make her beautiful XMAS Cake. I always asked for 'slithered' almonds, & the patient Greek man behind the counter never corrected me! It was such a joy to go to that shop on my annual errand. I still miss its' fabulous coffee aroma!
Anyway, can't eat whole almonds, to this day, I'm frightened of choking, even if I masticate it well. But certainly can eat in 'slithers'!
Love walnuts! My Mum made this yummy walnut cake from a recipe of an aunt. I've all of Mum's recipe books & used to love helping her cook anything, she was just a marvellous cook! RIP, Mum.
If okay to share your mummy walnut cake receipe , thank you very much. GBU

Grace, would love to, but have downsized & recipe book is packed away. Which carton I've no idea, as there're many! Apologies!

Almonds definitely

I don't particularly like either raw. I prefer cashews, pistachios, and pecans. If I had to choose, I'd go for walnuts though.
I love raw almonds but walnuts enjoy a take it or leave it status.
Walnuts every time. I'm not a fan of almonds but I love walnuts. Pickled walnuts are my favourite (which I guess counts as raw!) but straight out of the shell is delicious too :)
I definitely prefer almonds. I don't much like walnuts.
I'm divided. Walnuts. I think.

Once when I was a teenager I had a terrible flu. My mom bought some mixed nuts which i loved. I could not stand them. I barfed and that was the end of it. I will have them in small portions but definitely not raw. Almonds on the other hand are quite fine for me.

I really enjoy both, but would have to say walnuts win by a whisker.
neither, I do not like or eat nuts of any kind
I like them both but think maybe walnuts would be my pick, just because they are softer.
Almonds. Have never been able to stomach walnuts.

I am highly allergic to Walnuts! Not other nuts - just Walnuts. So many people cook with walnuts and do not tell anyone that their cake/slice has blasted nuts in it!
It is so irresponsible these days with so many people now developing new allergies regardless of how old they are.
I would rather eat walnuts then almonds, as I find the almonds too hard for my teeth! (I use a teaspoon of almond meal, from Aldi, on my muesli everyday.)

Can't stand walnuts. My mother got really ill after eating a certain brand of walnuts which debilitated her for months and never touched a walnut again. She loved all other nuts though. I often used to eat almonds but my teeth don't cope with them now. Sometimes I wonder if I had them taken out and replaced with dentures if it would allow me to enjoy them again. The same goes for other nuts as well.
