Peanuts are a wonderful source of monounsaturated fats, which have been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Peanuts are also an excellent source of protein, and they are naturally cholesterol-free.

Many of our customers have ties to the South, and with that in mind we now offer two varieties of green boiled peanuts. These distinctively salty peanuts are boiled in salted or seasoned water while still raw, making them soft, fresh and flavorful. Our boiled peanuts are canned just hours after they’re picked and boiled, which helps them to retain their fresh and naturally delicious flavor. And the best news about boiled peanuts comes from Alabama A&M University’s Department of Food and Animal Sciences. A new study by a group of researchers from Huntsville, Alabama, found that boiled peanuts contain up to four times more chemicals that help protect against disease than raw, dry or oil-roasted nuts. These phytochemicals have antioxidant qualities that protect cells against the risk of degenerative diseases, including cancers, diabetes and heart disease.
Chocolate peanuts may not be as healthy as other varieties, but that doesn’t keep us from chowing down! Our chocolate peanuts are freshly roasted and covered in a thick layer of rich, premium milk chocolate. We think they’re one of the best chocolate-covered items we offer! Try some today for a real treat that your whole family is sure to enjoy.
