    Have you ever had

    Have you ever had the cashew nuts?

    Have you ever eaten the cashew nuts?

    Do both these sentences convey the same meaning?

    Re: Have you ever had

    You need to drop "the" in both sentences. Then both are correct and have the same meaning.

    Re: Have you ever had

    Although we use "have" to mean "eat" in some contexts, there is a (slim) chance that your first sentence might simply be asking if the person had ever owned cashew nuts.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
