As I recall, there's a distinction between Spanish Peanuts and Redskins. Spanish Peanuts were on the small side and more round while Redskins were larger and looked like Virginia Peanuts with the skins on.

I recall going into Sears (Sears and Roebuck) at that time.  The aroma of the kiosk that served nuts was outstanding.  It was hard to pass them up because of the smell.  A lot similar to popcorn when you smell it popping.  I do not know when Sears and Roebuck quit doing that kiosk but it sure was popular about 60 years ago.
 
They always had hot red skin peanuts, cashews and many others in glass cases.

I have the same fond memories of the "hot nut counter" of our G.C. Murphy's 5 & 10 cent store in Washington, PA (27 miles SSE of Pittsburgh).
 
With their remodel a few years ago our local Tom Thumb (Safeway) here in McKinney, TX installed a hot nut counter.

... perfect gin martini recipe ... glancing toward the bottle of vermouth and acknowledging its presence in the bar ...

That's even drier than the driest I've heard ... leaning over the gin and whispering "vermouth".
Welcome to the board karenAnn
