He keeps looking at them forlornly, but I am mindful of the time he wouldn't let me have any of his mini bakewells.

Taunt him.

And we need the Bakewell story.

YADNBU. Pistachios are the food of the Gods. I recommend keeping a beating stick close to hand in case the rat bastard tries his luck wink.

Let him have one so he gets a taste for them. Then don't let him have any more.

When I was younger my dad used to say they were illegal for under 18s. I believed him until I was about 13

No way this is karma for him. Maybe let him have the last one just to be nice but also to make him wait

Aww, poor DH. grin

I love pistachios. I hate that they don't come already shelled though, so I would give him the task of shelling them for me, and might possibly let him have just one. wink

Topseyt so it's just me who sucks the shells for the salty goodness then

YABU for buying mini bakewells when you could have full-sized ones

Tell him he can have one, and then give him one that's completely closed

YANBU, shame on him for the mini bakewells incident

TheExMotherInLaw Wed 16-Sep-15 00:00:15

He can't have any of mine, either!

PippaPug Wed 16-Sep-15 08:47:14

You can get them ready shelled in Waitrose! Aren't as nice though sad

Ready shelled? shock angry

Licking the shell is the best bit! <almost>

The shells are the best bit! YANBU, he didn't share with you and so he set the tone.

like gin says, give him a closed one.

A good friend became addicted to pistachios when he gave up smoking. Opening them gave him something to do with his hands. Our job involved going to different parts of the borough and whenever I used to find a little pile of shells at the bus stop or in the police station or at the town hall I'd know John had been there.

He died quite a long time ago but whenever I see pistachio shells I think of him smile

I've never licked a pistachio shell! I feel I've been missing out.

Pistachios are too addictive to be a sharing snack anyway.

Armani you're evil! grin

squoosh you have to be minging and put the whole thing in your mouth until there's no more salt on the shell, then take it out and take the shell off and eat it
