Choosing from among so many types was a challenge. We settled for the honey roaster peanuts and munched on them a little at a time for days after the visit.

This establishment has been around since I was a small child. I loved to pass by the shop to smell the fresh roasted peanuts. I’m so thankful that this shop has survived for so long.....outlasting Scott’s, O’Neils, Polskie, and other businesses back then. I feel...More
