|We recently tasted some gourmet peanuts from The Appomattox River Peanut Company of Hopewell, Virginia.
Made on the historic banks of the Appomattox River,* the recipe uses only the finest select Virginia peanuts, peanut oil and a pinch of salt.
They’re the crunchiest peanuts we’ve ever had—and these are just the Original Gourmet Peanuts, not the Extra Crunchy Peanuts!
Another plus: user-friendly packaging. A metal key is provided to open the tin. It’s magnetized and attaches to the lid, so it will always be at hand.
Now, if it could only be our friend and stop us from devouring these crunchy peanuts! We were inspired to mix up a martini and watch the setting sun.
The company offers numerous other nut products, including flavored peanuts, chocolate-covered peanuts, brittle; plus almonds, cashews and pistachios. To order, call 1.866-458-4741, or purchase online at AppomattoxPeanuts.com.

|*If Appomattox sounds familiar, the Battle of Appomattox Court House was the final engagement of General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, following which Lee surrendered to the Union Army under Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. The battle took place on the morning of April 9, 1865. On April 12, a formal ceremony for the signing of the surrender documents marked the disbandment of the Army of Northern Virginia and ended the Civil War.|
