Boiled peanuts

Heading to Wilmington to drop our daughter off at UNCW. Was wondering if there are any boiled peanuts to be had in the Wilmington/Wrightsville/Kure area. Thanks.

I'd say you have a good chance. I don't know of any place in particular, but I have seen them at other beach locations so you might be able to find some.

If worse comes to worst, they sell them in the can in grocery stores.

I've been a little disappointed in finding good boiled peanuts since moving to Wilmington. Last year they had some pretty good ones at the Riverfront Farmer's Market which is held every Saturday downtown, but haven't been down there this year. www.wilmingtondowntown.com/farmers-market

Any boiled peanut connoisseur would NEVER eat those peanuts out of a can. :-) I'd love to hear if any Wilmingtonians know of a good place to find them as well.

Just bought some great boiled peanuts from the Veggie Wagon in Carolina Beach. Yumm. And you are correct, I would NEVER eat boiled peanuts out of a can. Really? No thank you.

Holmes Peanut Patch Boiled Peanuts in a can are quite good in a pinch. I don't know where you will be driving from but most fruit & vegetable stands will have some hot out of the cauldron
