Where can I get good salted-in-the-shell peanuts?
HELP. I LOVE salted-in-the-shell peanuts. But I am having a devil of a time finding consistently good ones.
For a while I was getting the 99¢ Frito-Lay bags from a neighborhood bodega. They were good and I thought nothing of it. Once I bought out his supply and he got new ones, the new batch was crap -- dried up, brittle, burnt-tasting. The latest batch has been like that, too.
When I tried a fancy-pants brand at the local organic store, they were not dried out, but they were burned.
I tried nutsonline.com, too, and THOSE were burned tasting, over-roasted.
Does anyone have a favorite brand of SITS peanuts? I am willing to mail-order at this point.
