They Grow on You !, March 2, 2006 - 11:05 AM
Reviewer: Joan from St. Augustine, Florida
That is what my Mom said after she tryed them for the first time. She tryed one, then another and then said they grow on you. I live in St. Augustine Florida and tryed boiled peanuts at a flea market about 4 years ago when we moved down here. I am originally from the very eastern end of Long Island NY. At first I didn't think much of them but now I enjoy them and my two children enjoy them as well. When my mom comes to visit we usually stop and get some at Bob's Bait in St. Augustine to take out on the boat with us. So to the fellow in Canada, you may feel better eating them down here in the south.

Boiled Peanuts - A Southern Soul-Food, November 11, 2005 - 11:59 AM
Reviewer: Penny Allen from Montevallo, Alabama
The person from Canada who didn't like boiled peanuts has a right to her opinion. However, these peanuts are a regional delecasy. They are sold all over the south at fairs, flea markets, baseball and football games and even in many gas station/food mart convenience stores. Like regional specialties anywhere, one usually develops a taste for them over time. I hated them as a child, but love them now. As for appearance...a boiled peanut isn't exactly pretty. Wet, limp and grayish-brown doesn't exactly look great on a platter; but it's the taste that counts.
