The history of peanuts tells us that it wasn’t until the early 1800s that they were grown as a commercial crop in the United States, first in Virginia. At this time, they were primarily used for oil, food and as a cocoa substitute.
The popularity of peanuts grew in the late 19th century, when PT Barnum’s circus wagons traveled across America with vendors shouting “hot roasted peanuts!”
Soon after, roasted peanuts became available at street carts and at baseball games.
Peanuts, peanut butter and peanut candy are some of the most popular products in the country, and data says that Americans eat more than six pounds of peanut products each year.
Not only are peanuts super tasty, but they also make a great, convenient snack and a rather healthy treat.
Peanuts are the #1 snack nut and account for two-thirds of all snack nuts consumed in America – so make sure you are well stocked with peanut and peanut products!
At Weaver Nut, we actually stock over 25 types of wholesale peanuts, and over 150 different peanut products, including peanut candy.
Among many quality peanut items, we also offer Blister Peanuts. Blister roasted peanuts are first water-blanched, which basically means they are immersed in water to remove the red skin. Then a small batch is roasted in pure peanut oil – making them extra crunchy.
Weaver Nut offers a selection of premium, crispy blister roasted peanuts, each offering a distinctive flavor, include Bacon Ranch Blister Roasted Peanuts, PB&J Blister Roasted Peanuts, and Sriracha Ranch Blister Roasted Peanuts.
Looking for bulk peanuts that are perfect for peanut butter making? Try our Peanut Splits for making unsalted peanut butter, or Honey Roasted Peanuts for making delectably sweet peanut butter.
Weaver Nut’s other popular peanut products include Red Skin Peanuts Roasted Salted, Fancy In Shell Cajun Peanuts, yummy Butter Toffee Coconut Peanuts, to name just a few.
