Short and green, he’s sometimes called The Pistachio Dude, The Happy Nut or The Smiling Nut. He’s a little plump, but quick to point out that it’s mostly “healthy fat.” The American Pistachio was raised in the best of circumstances in the American West by a loving farm family. Though he began as little kernel, he continued to grow until he was too big for his shell. Eventually, he cracked. Now this tasty character travels the world in the name of yum.
