Fred's Famous Peanuts is an awesome and fun place to stop and enjoy. They have a bit of everything. Specializes in peanuts, but they truly have something for everyone. Plus - Fred's support the US Military and are extremely patriotic.

We stopped to get some boiled peanuts. The people there were friendly and helpful and let us sample pretty much everything. They sell a peach cider that is delicious.

So glad they were open a little early this season. Best boiled peanuts, best peanut brittle. I have never had fried peanuts but bought two bags, after my sample, so I didn’t have to share with my hubby. Precious puppy on-site too. Must stop here!

Make sure you stop in at this place. Their roasted peanuts are so very good. It’s hard to stop eating them once you start. They have different kinds of peanuts, pig skins, Honey, jellies, jams and other stuff.

Do it every time I am in the area. I just love this place, partly because it reminds me of life as it used to be, but the boiled and roasted peanuts are worth the stop!

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.
