Some of our dear friends travelled to Virginia on vacation and brought back some edible souvenirs from The Peanut Shop of Williamsburg. I was lucky enough to receive a tin of these peanuts as a gift and I will never look at peanuts the same again. These extra-large, extra-crisp, lightly salted and roasted peanuts are so good they will stop you in your tracks.
I’ve served them to several other "Mainers" and the response is always the same. "Damn, those are good peanuts!" I mean no disrespect to Mr. Peanut and Planters, but these Virginia peanuts are my gold standard.
