Boiled Peanuts

Order now, we'll ship tomorrow

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.

“My husband is originally from Florida and now we live out in las vegas and he loves and misses his childhood staple, boiled peanuts. I've tried making them for him, buying some made at local restaurants but nothing will do but the peanut patch brand peanuts. He LOVES these so for special occasions I order him a few packs.
Thanks for making my job easy!!”

“Ordered online and they sent me confirmation of shipping that evening and 3 days later they arrived! Hadn't had boiled peanuts in over 4 yrs. Can't find them up north, so I would buy as many as I could find when we went down south. Don't have to go without again! YUM! YUM! YUM! Thank you for sending them so quickly. Will order again when supply here is depleted!”

“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.”
