With shell.  I remember my grandmother brining walnuts & chestnuts over. Told us not to use the nutcracker, since it was good exercise to break with our hands. Not sure that made any sense :)

Peanut or cashews.

grin WOW, Grandma must have had some strong hands! The only nuts I could crack open with my hand were peanuts and pistachios.

Cashews

Pumpkin or sunflower seeds?

The concept was to use one to break another. She didn't like technology. Used a wooden spoon to make mashed potatoes and whipped cream. Told my bother a blender ruined food. :)

Sunflower, though I'm not sure I could taste the difference. 

Granola or muesli.

Granola (I am from Portland, lol joyjoyjoy) You can use a blender to make mashed potatoes??? I use this funny metal doohickey thingy by hand, I thinks it’s called a potato masher

Yes, sour cream when mashing, stirring, mixing or blending. grin Paul, your grandma was probably a wonderful cook!

I have made butter by whipping the crap out of cream. 

Raise your hands or yell going thru tunnel?

No, but I do hold my breath going through a tunnel

So that really works with making butter? 
 

Mashed potatoes: leave some skins on or no

Oh yeah, there’s that one too! stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes Yes it does, but it has a different texture. My friend’s mother, when I was in high school, always engaged us in different cooking skills that weren’t used much anymore.  We even pulled taffy once!

No skins.

Favorite taffy flavor?  Mine is cinnamon

Watermelon. Can't say I eat taffy unless I'm in Atlantic City.

I don’t remember having different flavors of cotton candy.  We get a choice of pink or blue and I choose pink.

Hiking or biking?

Hiking, biking can be hazardous in the city.

Beach or mountains?

Regarding cotton candy, not sure the flavors taste different, but I've seen others.  I remember buying an Italian ice on the street years ago. The flavors were lemon, orange, chocolate, and blue. I asked the guy if blue was blueberry or mint, He said neither. I asked what the flavor was, he said blue. I told him blue was a color. He responded so is orange. I bought the lemon, but still don't know what blue tastes like.
