We loved it and stopped on two days. We took bags of boiled peanuts tubing down the river for a great snack. The fried peanuts were so delicious and addictive. Grab an extra bag cause you're gonna want them later.

Was really looking fwd to visiting and trying fried peanuts for the first time, I went on Sunday. Maybe we were too early, after 11:00 am? Sorry I may shed it.

A little out of town but easy enough to find. Fred's Famous Peanuts looks like a quirky spot but could not visit as it opens weekends only.
