Peanuts between DC and Harper's Ferry??

dagmar Nov 7, 2007 09:23 AM

Need to give a true 'nut-junky' some peanuts as a housewarming gift.
Anyone aware of someplace I can buy some fresh ones near DC before Saturday?
(or on Saturday between DC and Harper's Ferry, the site of the housewarming)

    The best Virginia peanuts (larger nuts) in the world are from Royal Oak in Southampton County. Their website is: http://www.royaloakpeanuts.com/ One of the reasons I really like them is that they literally roast their nuts within a day or two of shipping them out. I've ordered from them for years and continue to believe that they are better than any other Suffolk style peanut.

      You can always just run into your local Five Guys and steal a huge bucket full of them :)

        The thought did cross my mind.
        Either that or an industrial-sized Planters
