Is there any beer in BEER NUTS?

No. Early in our history, we made the startling discovery that people who drink beer are often hungry. We also noticed that hungry people will sometimes drink beer. To serve the greater good and bridge this gap, we sold our nuts in bars, taverns and liquor stores. They were immensely popular and so we chose the name BEER NUTS. We also sold them at gas stations, but "gas nuts" didn't have quite the same ring.
