They still sell peanuts but somehow the place looks grungy and un kept. Peanuts are still the star, well actually the only thing here plus the people tending the store were not the friendliness. Must have been the end of a long and difficult day....More

I was really pleased to drive by and see a little piece of history while passing through on a business trip from Israel. Definitely worth stopping by for a few minutes to look at all the memorabilia and meet the really wonderful staff.

This is a wonderful store where everything from chocolate covered peanuts to nuts of all sorts can be weighed, bagged and purchased while one stands at the counter and drools. The owners are fantastic people and visiting this store is pure fun!

We visited this little place some time ago and failed to review it. When you walk through the door it is like going back in time. There is a peanut roaster which is used every day and an old fashioned scale on the counter to...More

This is a 'must stop' if in Suffolk. Friendly staff and great products. Grab a 3 or 5 lb burlap bag of in shell peanuts and you will be the life of the party!
