Not all nuts taste the same ya know. Branch out. Try a few different ones and if you still don't like them then don't eat them.

Sounds like a short cut to choking to be honest, not sure about how they'd digest if you swallowed them whole, though not very well would be my guess!
What type of nuts are we talking about?

Is that why you're asking?

We used to bet people in the pub, when i was a lot younger, that they couldn't eat a bag of peanuts without drinking or chewing them. Its not hard at all, but it was fun to point out that they'd come out the same way they went in.

why are you even eating nuts if you don't like them?

just because something is good for you doesn't mean you have to eat it.
Fish is good for you, but I never eat fish cos it's rank. tomatoes are good for you, but also not included in my diet. aubergines, cauliflower, Cherrys, Courgette and Oranges/satsumas/mandarins/clemintines also dont make it onto my plate

I'm trying new things to help me out. A lot of people say nuts are good for you. I've increased the amount of fruit I eat.. But I can't eat veg.. makes me gag.. I do make veg soup and blend it to a pulp and eat it.

good that you are trying new things and trying to eat healthy. But I highly doubt veg makes you gag. Sure, the thought of eating veg is making you gag, but it's not the veg causing it in other words, it's in your head.

There is a live thread on the front page about helping someone similar to eat veg you should check it out and try to get over this psychological approach you have to food.

Texture of what? Broccoli has wildly different texture to carrots, peas have different texture to aubergine etc etc etc

Vegetables are not all the same!

What about peanut butter so, if you like veg soup peanut butter is sort of along the same lines. It could be even mixed into soups. If you like currys some can be high in nuts, or have it added, like ground almonds or cashews.
