boiled peanuts and Yankees

Paul in S.C. | Jan 22, 2006 07:34 AM

I'm curious if there are any Yankees or Non-Southerners that like or have even tried boiled peanuts. In case you don't know they are peanuts boiled in salt water. The best way to eat one is to hold one level, remove the upper half of the shell,and then dump the contents into your mouth, salt water and all. You can find boiled peanut stands on the side of the road throughout the South. The parking lot at Wal-mart is another common place to find them. I don't think we could hold a football game in South Carolina without them. I once had a Northerner to tell me that boiled peanuts were disgusting. So is this a collective Yankee opinion?
