Anyone tried fried peanuts yet?

I know they're frying everything these days from pickles to Snicker Bars but it was still shocking to find convenient stores in my area selling fried peanuts in the shell. I finally bought a bag of Cajun fried peanuts but really wasn't sure how to eat them. I asked the clerk and she said you're supposed to eat them shell and all. Well I did just that and it wasn't too bad but I guess it might take awhile to cultivate a taste for those crispy shells. Some guy in Charleston has a blog on fried peanuts and he suggests that you only eat every third shell???
