Honey Roasted Peanuts - Cooked and coated with sugar, honey, and salt, for an addictively sweet & salty taste.

 

Peanuts were a staple of the colonial diet. In the historical archives at Mount Vernon, there is a letter dated 1798 from George Washington to his buying agent in which he ordered “Pindars”, another word for peanuts. “Half a bushel. Or bushel of the Ground Pease, or Pindars as they are called…”

Virginian peanuts -known for their large size and crunchy texture- have been referred to as the “peanut of the gourmet”. These Virginia grown peanuts are cooked in pure peanut oil to keep them cholesterol-free and enhance the natural peanut taste.
