Sid is obsessed with these peanuts. They're from Virginia, from a family-owned business that's been operating since the 1950s, and they make a great host or housewarming gift. Way less expected — and a little more interesting — than a bottle of wine. They're blister-fried and perfectly-crunchy and really, really-delicious. They also come with a little lid-lifter (pictured) for easy opening.
“I stumbled upon these a few years back, and I can't get enough. (Chocolate, Sweet Heat, Salted, Honey Kissed... any flavor, any time, but the chocolate is killer.) They're my go-to host or housewarming gift, because they're just a little more charismatic than your standard bottle of wine. There's a running joke around the office that I eat our inventory. Not entirely untrue.”
