On December the 22nd, 1944, the Germans had the town of Bastogne, Belgium surrounded and sent a message to Allied General A. C. McAuliffe asking for his surrender. His reply, "Nuts," would be that era's equivalent of "no way"

No. You can not get nutella without nuts. It advertises nuts in the name and is also know as the hazelnut spread. So nutella is made out of nuts.

As far as I know, most sugar cocoa butter does not have nuts in it. Depending on where you get it, there may be traces of nuts in it.

"Drive you nuts" can be translated as "drive you crazy." To define it without using more slang - it means to frustrate you to such a degree that you are getting angry.

Macadamia nuts are not good to give dogs. As far as I know dogs can eat peanut butter so peanuts should be good too. I don't know about any other nuts.

I don't know when they changed the mixture, but I wish they wouldn't have. I'm extremely allergic to macadamia nuts and didn't realize the mixed nuts now contain them and not hazel nuts. I never had a problem with their mixed nuts before, but tonight I spent my birthday very ill.

The Defense of Bastogne, Battle of the Bulge, 16-27 December 1944, in which General McAuliffe was acting commander. On 21 December Germany commanders General Baron Heinrich von Luettwitz and General der Panzertruppe Hasso Eccard von Manteuffel prepared a note for American General McAuliffe, requesting the surrender of the 101st that illicited his infamous reply. "Nuts!"
