Nuts Whole Hazelnuts

8th October 2015

As I was walking around a particularly magnificent looking Corkscrew hazel tree (Corylus avellana contorta) at the weekend, I noticed a number of hazelnuts scattered around its base.

Usually, the squirrels beat me to the harvest, but for some reason, this year, they'd left quite a haul for me to collect!

While I collected the nuts I couldn't help but sing along to the theme tune for an advert from when I was a kid. Does anyone remember it? It was for Cadbury's Whole Nut chocolate bars. It went something like...

Nuts, whole hazelnuts! Cadbury's take 'em and they cover them in chocolate!

The problem is that now I can't get the damnable tune out of my head, and it's driving me half crazy!

Oh well! For at least bringing back a childhood memory, I'm making these hazelnuts my Image of the Week...
