    Boiled peanuts? Don't think I've ever had one. Sounds like I better try one either :)

    I love them too!
    Does anyone have a good mail order address for them?

    My friends bring me some every year, but I run out faster than they can bring them to me. :)

    I haven't had boiled peanuts in ages and still crave them at times. You can send the rest to me:), I'll help you with your addiction.

    Sounds like me and sunflower seeds. Don't get me near a bag or I won't stop until I finish the whole thing. That, and pistachios. Yummy! But gosh the dry mouth all that salt will give you. Woo! Make sure you always have a huge glass of water handy when you start on a bag. :)

    The ones out of the cans do no justice to the real thing. I buy a few sacks a year and freeze them. Bang then aside the house and crack the shells and boil in crab boil for 3 years. No, not that long, but it is a few hours. I don't time, just taste.

    I love them. I was raised in NC and recall always stopping at the road side stands with my dad for a bag. Good stuff. Too bad I havn't seen one in many years.

    I love, love, love boiled peanuts!!!! When I visit the south, I buy green peanuts and make boiled peanuts and I feel like I am in heaven! For some reason, it is really hard locating the raw peanuts around here in MD.
