Enjoyed our first visit. Small store with many choices! We picked chocolate-covered cashews, chocolate gummy bears, roasted peanuts and carried them to the nearby park.

This place has the best snacks in downtown Mobile and is a gathering place for musicians to play jazz. Great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

We've been going to the A&M Peanut Shop every time we visit Mobile. The peanuts and treats are outstanding. They even sell peanuts for feeding the squirrels in the park. Staff is friendly and the prices are good.

A Mobile classic -- fresh peanuts are always roasting and on weekends there are street bands performing out front. It's a trip back in time.
