“It's just a smiling peanut”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

That's all, folks! Just a big smiling peanut on the road from town toward his parents' farm. Located at a gas station, jump out and take your picture.

“Great Photo Op”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We enjoy finding roadside oddities and "the biggest.........". Our grandchildren enjoyed having their picture made with the peanut and just another fun must do in Plains!

“Beware of peanuts of weevils”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

If you happen to be visiting Plains, GA. and go by the Carter Peanut Statue, then visit the specialty Plain Peanut Store that sells all sorts of peanuts products including ice cream, etc. Do NOT buy the raw (unroasted) peanuts. They are full of weevils which penetrate the peanut hulls and leave little web-like things inside the peanuts. We bought an approximate 3 lb. bag of them on May 6, 2012, brought them home, roasted them and then have gone through about a half bag so far. We have found that more than five dozen peanuts infested with these tiny weevils. Don't waste your money buying them! I did! BIG MISTAKE!

“Explains everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

The home and library were as bland as the presidents administration was. However, the statue explained everything without using words. Forever malaise!
