This place has peanuts in all kinds of flavors. If you didn’t find something you like you didn’t try everything. The mixes are really good to but my favorite is the chocolate dipped. They have peanuts, cashews, almonds and pecans that are dipped. My stomachs...More

We just had to walk in and smell! Then, we tasted several FREE samples of all kinds of nuts...then, of course, we felt guilty and bought some dark chocolate-covered something-or-others. It reminded us of our old Peanut Shop in Akron, Ohio, but this place is...More

This makes a nice gift for someone or a reminder of your trip. Too many varieties to mention but it's nice to walk through and sample what you would like before you buy.

All the times we have visited Williamsburg, I don't remember ever stopping here. Amazing selection of peanut products, something for everyone's taste. I tried several samples and they were all delicious.

What an awesome collection of peanuts! And a variety of samplers for tasting! A visit is a must. Try the sea salted caramel; dark chocolate cocoa; butter toffee flavors. There's even Indian curry; hot southern & savory dill pickle.

The Peanut Shoppe offers a good selection and is a neat place to visit. What I would recommend, however, is changes to the free sample policy in this store. The store offers up samples, usually to a crowd of pushy, rude, and unsanitary visitors and...More
