Boiled peanuts are a tasty snack and a favorite food of the South. Their distinct salty taste comes from boiling green peanuts, still in the shell, in salt water. The boiling process releases flavors and nutrients from the peanut shell, making the nuts soft, fresh, and flavorful. Our boiled peanuts are canned only hours after being picked, so they retain their delicious taste.
How to Eat Boiled Peanuts
Our boiled peanuts come from the popular Margaret Holmes Peanut Patch brand, in 7.5 oz dried weight cans (these used to be called Roddenberry). To enjoy the boiled peanuts, drain the brine from the can and shell the peanuts. For extra flavor, try heating the peanuts in the liquid after opening the can.
Boiled Peanuts Nutrition
1. Boiled peanuts contain more antioxidants than roasted or raw peanuts. A 2007 study conducted by researchers from Alabama A&M University's Department of Food and Animal Sciences found that boiled peanuts bring out up to four times more phytochemicals that help protect against disease than raw, dry or oil-roasted nuts. These phytochemicals have antioxidant qualities that protect cells against the risk of degenerative diseases, including cancers, diabetes and heart disease.
2. Boiled peanuts support a healthy heart. Boiled Peanuts contain resveratrol, a plant chemical also found in red wine, which studies have shown to have a protective effect against cancer and heart disease. A 2013 study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine found that resveratrol still remains effective even after the body has metabolized it. The lead researcher of this study believes that this regeneration effect could be beneficial in treating a wide variety of human diseases.
3. Boiled peanuts are an excellent source of nutrients. Our peanuts are loaded with many vitamins and minerals and are high in plant protein. Also, the fat content is primarily the good kind which includes monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. According to the American Heart Association, replacing saturated and trans fat with unsaturated fat as part of a healthy diet can help lower LDL “bad” cholesterol levels.
A Tasty Tradition
Boiled peanuts have been a cultural tradition of the Southern United States since at least the Civil War, when Confederate soldiers would use salt water to boil and preserve the "goober peas" they were given as rations. Today, these peanuts are still extremely popular in the South, and were even proclaimed the official snack food of South Carolina in 2006. During the summer months, families, neighbors, and friends throughout the South often gather to boil peanuts together and enjoy them outdoors over a cold drink.

“I lived in Florida when I was in High School and absolutely loved boiled peanuts. Since moving back to Washington state I haven't been able to find them. One day I did a search on the internet and found Nuts Online and promptly order 3 cans, they were gone in a day and half. They were exactly what I remembered and totally irresistable”

“Hi there Nutty Buddies! I received my Boiled Peanuts today. Yay!! And the free Pistachio nuts. What a nice surprise! I'm really excited to have Boiled Peanuts again. It's been awhile. Yrs ago when I was a teen, I first discovered them traveling to AZ with my Mom. I found them at Stucky's on the way out there. I don't know if you are familiar with them. They had a gas station, gift shop and restaurant. And they were along Interstates. I had to be sure and get some when we would go. One yr my Mom had even ordered me a case from somewhere in the south for Christmas. ha! That was a pretty neat gift.
I can't find them around here. Our local store had them for a very very short time. Alot of people here aren't really familiar with boiled peanuts.
I know where I can get some now. The ordering process was easy and quick. I received a confirmation/tracking email. So then I knew when to watch for it. And my order came when they said it would. Thank you!!”

“Being in the US military and being stationed overseas can be hard sometimes. Nuts Online was able to send me boiled peanuts that I used to enjoy with my siblings. This little part of home made being 1/2 a world away not seem so far.”
Marlene, Hammond, IN December 27, 2010
“Thank you so much for the super fast delivery, got my case of boiled peanuts in time to share them with family during Christmas. We are originally from Georgia so I had plenty of help eating them.

“I have bought your boiled peanuts twice now and am very pleased. My family lives in Kentucky and loves boiled peanuts. They can't ever find them so it has been great to be able to have them sent to them. I have to tell you that they just love them! Thanks so much!!!”
Vicki, Sacramento, CA December 20, 2010
I just received the nuts I ordered. My son loves boiled peanuts, but you can't get them except in the south, so this will be a huge surprise for him at Christmas. He will be very surprised and happy. He won't open them in front of me because he claims I can crack them open and eat them faster than him, so he will wait until he gets home until he opens them. Stingy.
I wish all you Nuts a Happy Holiday and a New Year where all your hopes and dreams come true.

“I was born and raised in Alabama, and joined the Army in 2000. I have since been stationed at Ft. Carson, Colorado twice, spent 3 years in Germany, and have just recently finished my 3rd tour of duty in Iraq. Boiled peanuts were a very important staple of my diet growing up in the south, so I figured that I would soon be going through boiled peanut "withdrawals" after leaving Alabama for a military career!! haha This website came to my attention a little over a year after I left the south, and has since become my constant supply of one of my favorite foods... BOILED PEANUTS!!!! I have since purchased several different products in addition to the peanuts, from this website, and "Nuts Online" has yet to disappoint!! If you ever need to find any kind of healthy snacks, candies that you enjoyed growing up and just can't seem to find in the store anymore, or even healthy alternatives for your children's snacks, then look no further than this website, because chances are you'll find everything you're looking for, and even somethings that you weren't!! Keep up the GREAT work guys, and Thanks for the years of excellent service!!”
