We come here every year and load up on all kinds of specialty nuts. This year was no different. Due to COVID, there are no longer samples and the hours are reduced. The team is doing all they can in disinfecting the shopping baskets and have traffic coming in one door and out another. Please support this local establishment.

Peanut Shop of Williamsburg at Merchants' Square - What an amazing selection of flavored peanuts, mixed nuts, and chocolate covered nuts. Go on Wednesday for Senior Citizen 15% discount, no coupon required. Hopefully after COVID they will bring back the tasting stations.

Terrible customer service. I was basically ignored after I put down my purchases which she rang up but then left to help another customer. Then when I got my bill I had a question about the cost as there want an itemized listing. I was told that was in the bag on the exit side. So when I got to the bag I asked about an item and was told that's what it costs. I tried to talk to her about returning the one item as I thought it was way too much and she walked away leaving me there.

For several years, I have been placing orders with The Peanut Shop of Williamsburg. All the orders have been going to the same family member in Michigan. I sent an order a few weeks ago and was informed that the expiration date was only a few months out (1/2021). All previous orders had expiration dates of almost a year out. I contacted the company and had the worse customer service experience. Informed me that as long as the expiration date was 30 days out, the order should be fine. No other explanations...I wrote back and said it was not acceptable and felt it was due to lack of sells during the virus. Their come back was...have a great day and thanks for your business!
I will never do business with them again. If this is how they treat returning customers, they do not deserve my business.

The Peanut Shoppe offers a good selection and is a neat place to visit. What I would recommend, however, is changes to the free sample policy in this store. The store offers up samples, usually to a crowd of pushy, rude, and unsanitary visitors and tourists. The majority are there for the free samples of peanuts and chocolate, and if any reviewers have witnessed some of the stuff I have, they would think twice about the "free samples". I saw one toddler, with a noticeable runny nose, grab into the bowl with his bare hands (of course the parents like most these days, were oblivious). Deciding he didn't like the sample, the kid promptly takes it out of his mouth and places in back in the sample bowl. That did it for my visit that day. I no longer take free samples, unless it is offered at the check-out counter. No wonder so many people are getting the flu.

Went here while visiting historic Williamsburg. What a great little place with a Hugh variety of flavored nuts. Everything from salt and vinegar to peanut's with wasabi. The freshness of the nuts was amazing with samples of almost all the varieties they have to offer. Also the Peanut brittle and the pub mixes they have are awesome. The employees are very friendly and helpful. The only thing I don't suggest would be buying the peanut's in the shell they really aren't anything different then the ones you can get at a ball game or arena. My favorite flavor is the jalapeño which is just slightly spicy but full of flavor. If you don't stop here when in the area or close by consider yourself Nut's.

We came here before dinner thankfully as we ended up not needing any! So many peanut samples. We found most flavors weren't all that great but bought some Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts. It was very fun to try all the unique kinds and the staff was very good at keeping the samples stocked.

If you are a nut lover then this is the place for you. You will find the largest and freshest varieties of peanuts from lightly salted to all sorts of flavors. Plus you can find cashews and pistachios (a couple of my other favorites).

I want to state right up front these aren't the cheapest nuts around, but they are by far the best. What makes the shop so fun are the free samples of everything they sell. From lightly salted peanuts to Old Bay flavored peanuts. With out a doubt my favorite is the chocolate covered peanut butter peanuts. Bur the dark chocolate peanuts are right up there on the list. They aren't just limited to peanuts but have all types of nuts, jellies and jams. The biggest challenge is deciding which ones to buy.
