My almond just tasted like amaretto, was it safe to eat it?

Asked by Ltryptophan (10724points) November 29th, 2014 from iPhone

I had an almond and it had a strong amaretto flavor. I remember reading that is a sign of a bitter poisonous almond.

One almond? You’re fine.

I would just throw the rest out. Don’t worry about what you ate.

I think that bag of almonds has gone a bit rancid.

Looks to me like Amaretto is flavored with a different type of almond. Almonds grown for eating are sometimes referred to as ‘sweet’ almonds, to differentiate them from the bitter—and toxic—variety that flavors almond extract and marzipan.

Truth told? I remember sampling a peach pit as a kid, and I assure you I am not a ghost.

Almond has a hint of sweetness, obviously a little nuttiness
