This is a roadside treasure. Nothing fancy. Just fresh peanuts, prepared anywhere from roasted to boiled.

We loved it and stopped on two days. We took bags of boiled peanuts tubing down the river for a great snack. The fried peanuts were so delicious and addictive. Grab an extra bag cause you're gonna want them later.
