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!

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!

Beautiful, old-timer building that makes you smell the peanuts from a mile away. I love how they are still using the same space they began in a few hundred years ago.

Variety of nuts. You feel you have stepped back in time. They sell candies as well that you grew up enjoying. Very friendly people. They also roast nuts the old fashioned way right in the store as you shop.
