Nuts about

adjective phrase

(Variations: nutty may replace nuts) Very enthusiastic about; devoted to; crazy about: I think I’m nuts about you/ I’d be simply nutty about the quadrangles at Oxford

[1918+; fr British slang nutty, ”piquant, fascinating,” fr earlier sense ”rich, tasty, desirable, like the kernel of a delicious nut,” altered in slang to nuts and originally in the phrase nuts upon, found by 1785; the US form nuts about may be based on all this or on the notion crazy about, and probably on both]
