My dad is a pretty healthy man, but there were always two foods that made him lose control. The first was plates of cheese, crackers and sausage. The second were in-the-shell peanuts. He would take a giant bag of them down to the TV room with him along with an empty paper grocery sack and sit there un-shelling the peanuts, eating them, and throwing the empty shells into the grocery bag.
From Jimmy Carter to Mr. Peanut to a beloved comic strip, peanuts are a major part of American iconography. My dad’s favorite style of peanuts were unquestionably the classic pictured above, but today we want to know – what’s your favorite kind of peanut?
Do you pine after sacks of classic in-the-shell peanuts hanging out in sacks around Five Guys and littering the floor at Texas Roadhouse? Or do you prefer pre-shelled peanuts in a can? How about honey roasted? Vote for your favorite style of peanut below and let us know why in the comments!
