Stopped here to check out the peanut range and came out with bags of treats and now wish we had bought more. A huge range of flavoured peanuts and have since tried the Mexican Salsa ones. Lots of flavour without the chilli and really scrumptious....More

This place is just in the side of the road and was a good opportunity to have a rest and browse the store. They have lots of different flavors on offer and even let you taste test them first.

The peanut and chocolate ice cream was quite nice. The hot nuts are delicious... very moorish and the brittle is yummy too Well worth a visit

Stopped by to sample some nuts and ended up buying some sour cream macadamia nuts and spicy peanuts after sampling the array on offer. Thank you to the friendly staff who waited patiently while we sampled the different selections before making our purchases.

This is a great place to source a huge variety of peanuts. The packs for purchase start at 50g up to 1kg packets. There are plain nuts, lots of savoury flavoured nuts. Our favourite are chilli and lime but just a few examples of other...More

Tastings are offered to help you decide between the large range of flavours and packet sizes. We bought Chilli and Lime, Sweet and Salty, Butterscotch and Caramel flavours. All are delicious. I've always thought boiled peanuts tasted strange and must be an acquired taste but...More

OK, we're weirdos, and we like these roadside oddities. We stopped because of the sign. Our local friends acquiesced in our plea to visit. I went potty while my spouse shopped for souvenirs and peanuts. We were both relieved to have stopped here.

While casual fans of the peanut are more than welcome, this incredible location caters to the true seeker. Very cool owner and a simple retail paradise of all things peanut!
