This unique store will actually fresh roast your order of nuts if you ask politely...or you can select from numerous other candy specialties and/or varieties of nuts that have been freshly roasted earlier that day. Did I mention the caramel popcorn and chocolate-covered nuts? The store has survived despite the spate of other abandoned storefronts along the pedestrian Main Street.... More

Actually went in to ask for directions and met a very nice knowable man named Rida Abuzaineh. He was very helpful and of course we bought some of his delicious peanuts.We had quite a chat. The shop is old and very small, but go and try his peanuts.

There are many things to see and do in downtown Memphis, but make sure to save a little time to stop at the Peanut Shoppe and pick up the best nuts and chocolate that Memphis has to offer. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to meet Rida, the always gracious, shop owner!!

Great little place that smelled incredible as I walked in (likely because of the peanuts roasting in the old school roaster). Go in if he is open, you won't be disappointed!

I visited this shop many years ago on a business trip and was immediately sold on the size and quality of the fresh cashews. Since then, I have been doing business with the owner through their website and/or by telephone on a regular basis. Their customer service is by far one of the best experiences I have ever had, and... More

I saw the Peanut Shoppe in my AAA book and it intrigued me. Also, I thought that it would be a great place to get snacks since we did not have a cooler on our road trip to L.A. Rida, the owner, was a blast. He allowed us to taste a variety of nuts before making our final selections and... More

After a little bit of browsing we asked to get 5 lb bag, he said... More

This shop is a MUST visit. Family owned business, in the heart of downtown. It has classic charm, and just smells delicious. The father/daughter were extremely helpful and friendly. They asked where we were from (California) and when we told him, he immediately offered to help find the great spots, recommended places for lunch, and places to visit. Very nice,... More

I got the impression this was an old shop and the gentleman that was working was very friendly. I took my young son here on a lark and the place smelled great and was clean. We ate toffee covered almonds they were of very high quality and were very fresh and tasty. Slightly pricey but well worth it as everything... More
