Peanuts – The World Series requires bags of Peanuts to be in the house. I am looking for special “Gourmet” peanuts that I once received as a gift. The peanuts were smaller than regular peanuts and the pods had as many as six, eight and even ten nuts each. They came in a small burlap sack. I think they were from a special farm in Georgia. Can anyone help me find them? I have spent hours on the Net and have not come close.

Peanut Butter Cookies – Rich in Peanut taste, moist and peanuts inside – Any good ones around?

Peanut Brittle -- A post by MN in Sept. mentioned the Monastery of The Angels as a good place for Pumpkin Bread. Many Thanks again to MN. I have become a regular at the Monastery and find that the 2 lb. loafs of Pumpkin Bread make a special gift. They also offer some very nice hand dipped milk chocolates. On my last visit I bought a one pound box of the best peanut brittle I have ever had. It is really “Brittle” and not hard. It almost shatters in your mouth when you bite it. Then it melts into a creamy peanut butter with whole fresh peanuts. The Peanut Brittle (like the Pumpkin Bread) is a must try at the Monastery gift shop. Anyone have any other Peanut Brittle?

What ealse is made of Peanuts that is fun to eat and who sells it?

The best kept secret in Hollywood is hidden just under the Hollywood sign.
