"Peanut Patch" Green Boiled Peanuts in Microwaveable Pouch -- Where in NOVA?

alkapal Mar 4, 2010 05:47 AM

I had some of these peanuts in Florida. They are really good (if you like boiled peanuts).

Where can I find them in NoVa?

(I've found a mail order source, but was hoping to avoid shipping costs).

      Instant grits, low-fat black eyed peas, microwaveable boiled peanuts.... This is just so wrong.

        honey, these boiled peanuts are very, very "right."
        i didn't even microwave them, as i love them room temp.

        ps, black-eyed peas *are* low fat.

        instant grits -- you are correct, sir.

          Okay, then I think we're mostly on the same page. How do you feel about sweet tea?

            love it. i can't have it too often, though -- my teeth would rot! i actually like mickey d's sweet tea when i'm driving around, get thirsty, and want a cool sweet slug.

            i grew up drinking my aunt billie's sweet tea. she was the queen of sweet tea. my mom's didn't come close.

            as to my peanut quest, i'm going to ask harris-teeter to order some. their north and south carolina stores carry peanut patch (but maybe only in the cans?). anyway, these new peanuts in the pouch are nice and big and perfectly done, with virtually zero runts.

              Let us know if and when H-T gets them in. I asked them several times to get Aunt Jemima buckwheat pancake mix (back when it was still being made) and they never did.

                if i have to mail order, i'm getting my boiled peanuts from hawk's down in tampa. i had some recently and they were great (and i'm picky about boiled peanuts). http://hawksboiledpeanuts.com/aboutus...
