I grew up eating peanuts in Bertie County. Imagine my excitement when I found their products for sale here in the middle of NC! Everything they make is great. Personal favorites are the Weeping Mary Ghost Pepper peanuts and the ones dressed with black pepper and sea salt.

The good thing is you can mail-order from anywhere in the country. But if you are in the area it is well worth stopping by to see a slice of eastern North Carolina farm life and sample some wonderful peanuts. Careful, though, they are addictive and the jar will be empty before you know it. While there pick up a bag of raw peanuts to take home. Oven-roasted plain peanuts are a huge treat for those who love peanuts!

Three varieties of nut available at Powell & Stokes. While the plain jumbo blister-fried nuts are superb, we love all the variations.

Although Powell & Stokes started selling peanuts to the public in 1994, they have been buying, drying, cleaning, grading and selling them wholesale since 1915. If you like peanuts, you NEED to visit this place!

We spotted this bag of nuts in the corner of a local barber shop. We're not sure why they were there, but it seems perfectly normal in Bertie County to see peanuts wherever you go.
