Looking for a mail order source of dark roasted peanuts in shell?

sfbing | Apr 13, 201005:32 PM     16

I used to buy my peanuts direct from Hoody's, largely because they roasted their peanuts a little longer than normal (so the nuts were a golden-brown). The extra roasting time would make the nuts very peanutty, and more importantly, they didn't have the rancid flavor that a lot of under roasted peanuts have.

Unfortunately, they appear to have been purchased by another company that doesn't sell online. Plus, the Hoody bags I found at Andronico's have very pale and stale underroasted nuts, despite having an expiration date in June 2010. When I emailed the customer service dept, they basically said that nothing has changed, when it clearly has.

Any how, now that baseball is starting, does anyone know of a good source of very roasted, salted, in shell Virginia peanuts? I'd rather not have to figure out how to roast my own peanuts.
