Natalie on at I’ve never had a hot boiled peanut! Don’t know if I like them or not. My Wordless Wednesday is up too! 🙂 Natalie on at I’ve never had a hot boiled peanut! Don’t know if I like them or not. And Miles To Go... on at I don’t think I’ve ever had them. Look delicious!! inheritorofheaven on at I had them in Georgia once. Suffice it to say they were not my favorite. Georgia peaches were my favorite. carrie-the gremlin wrangler on at well, my first impression was that they looked like the bugs people eat on Fear Factor. Probably not a good sign… Shelia on at Never had any, but I’m curious now! Happy WW! Pamela on at I betcha I would like them. genny on at Oh my hubby likes and love that. Can i have some? mine is here http://happymomiam.blogspot.com/2007/12/wordless-wednesday-fall-trees.html Carmi on at Hi Robin. Love ‘m or hate ’em, I find it hard to believe anyone wouldn’t be captivated by the texture in this photo. Gorgeous! Loved your perspective on my WW from today: the glass is definitely half full. Life’s too short to spend playing the pessimist. Thanks for always believing in the upside. Your comments are an inspiration to read, and I’m so glad you’ve found my blog, and I’ve found yours. Gattina on at I never ate it and it really doesn’t appeal me either, lol ! D. Renee Bagby on at My mind just went to a naughty place. Sorry. ;P Happy WW! the108 on at love em’! MissMeliss on at Never had them, but I love the picture. junebug on at My husband loves them if they are salted, but at first glance those looked kinda nasty… Rhonda on at Who on earth eats boiled peanuts? That’s just gross! Come on by mine when you have a chance and see my 1st actual foto — I took it :0 It’s colorful and fun too! Happy WW! Alison on at never had them…they look like my son put all them in his mouth, sucked all salt off of them and spit them back out…not that he has ever done that before!! shannon on at I am so freaked out by the thought of boiled peanuts that I have never tried them. Interestingly you can buy boiled peanuts in Jakarta. Wonder if they taste different? Melanie on at I admit they look gross but I DO love those boiled peanuts. They’re best when they’re hot. Haven’t had any in a while but now I really want some. Happy WW! Irene on at The title is wonderful.i never had boiled peanuts. Are you serious?! Little Miss Moi on at Dear robin. I thought this was a trick question, and that there would be a slimly slug or something in amongst the peanuts! I’ve never had hot boiled peanuts. Do YOU like them? claudia on at They taste pretty good but gggaaaah, they look gross, don’t they? Serena on at I love them. They only “looked” yucky in the photo but they taste good in real life. 😀 a simple life on at I love boiled peanuts,,, soft and sweet. Happy WW! liza on at That looks so good! Have a great WW! Sher :) on at hummmm,…..I think I’d probably like them. 🙂 Maria on at Hmmm… I’ve never eaten anything other than roasted peanuts. They DO look slimey! LOL ~Maria Pass the Torch on at I’ve only had them once – and that was about 20 years ago, on a trip through your neck of the woods. Suz on at Hate ’em 🙂 It’s a very vivid picture though! min on at Loved them as a kid. We used to make them on week-ends and it seemed like it took them forever to cook!! They were a big part of our summer afternoon-playing-in-the-sprinkler ritual. Those were the days before the big depression…my big depression (otherwise known as puberty). Sandy on at I never had them! Great picture, though. Tiff@Three Peas in a Pod on at I love Boiled Peanuts!!! YUMMY. I just bought some yesterday! Laurel Wreath on at Umm YUCK! Average Jane on at I had them at Thanksgiving for the first time this year and I wasn’t particularly enamored of them. I think I like regular peanuts better. Lisa's Chaos on at Never heard of hot boiled peanuts before. Sounds different. Cheeky on at AND OH SO YUMMY!!!! I miss them so much – people look at me like I have two heads when I talk about their yumminess! hulagirlatheart on at I may be a southern gal, but I can’t stand ’em. I’m okay with peanuts in my Dr. Pepper, though. And Moon Pies with RC Cola. Diana on at Never even heard of them…what do they taste like? Wendy on at hmmm…never had them! nikki on at No offense, they look disgusting. Great picture though! Lisa on at I’ve never had them, either. I do love peanuts, though they look REALLY slimy. Sharon on at Hmmm. Never actually tried them, but I like the smell of them, so I’ll bet I’ll like them. 🙂 Frigga on at I’ve never actually had them while they’re still hot… Happy WW 😛 Tyra on at Never had them either, have to say they do look a little gross! Robinella on at I have a story about boiled nuts, only I thought the woman was saying Bull Nuts. It was quite the misunderstanding. Mal on at I’ve never tried them. The photo looks nasty;) janet on at never tried ’em … and although the photo is artistically very cool, it is nasty enough to put me off ’em. heh jubilee on at eeeeewwwwwWWWWW. and again I say, eeeewwwwwWWWWW. Picture perfect, though. Robin (the pensieve one) on at Inheritor…no question about which is BETTER! Carrie, hilarious! Trust me, I’d take the bugs! Genny, please…take them ALL! Carmi, I’m just glad I didn’t scare ya to death…(and the sentiment is mutual). D. Renee, I have NO idea where that could be! 😉 Junebug, KINDA nasty???!!! Rhonda, actually, it’s a Southern delicacy…to some people, that is…! Janet, I DO love this picture, but I DON’T love the nuts! Alison, that’s the only part I’d try. Shannon, hmmm, I wonder, too. Irene, thanks…especially when it’s spelled correctly :/…. Dear Little Miss Moi, if you can’t tell by this stage in my comment response, NO, they make me wanna gag! Claudia, YES! Kelly, COME BACK! Hey Min…glad you’re living post depression! Thanks, Sandy. Jane, me, too. Cheeky, you can take the Southern Girl outta the South…;)… Hulagirl, my kids don’t get that, and I’m not a fan, but I have plenty of friends who drop their nuts in a Coke (or DP). Me? ICK! Diana, to me, they taste like what they look like…rubbery dried snot (shhh!) Nikki, none taken…I AGREE with you! Frigga, the only thing MORE disgusting than hot, boiled peanuts is COLD, boiled peanuts. Robinella, hahahahaha. Jubilee, more giggles (love your eeewwwWWWWs! 🙂 staciesmadness on at never had ’em. interesting though! Happy WW! jeanie on at They are a Southern delicacy here, also – Southern Queensland that is. Kingaroy, the “Peanut Capital” has a nut van that does A-W-E-S-O-M-E boiled peanuts, but to really appreciate them you have to have driven 5 hours in a truck, be with your Dad who is nuts for these delicacies and be under the age of 10. leah belle on at Here in SE Alabama, we love boiled peanuts… My hubby especially. We live in the heart of peanut farming…check out the post about it on my recipe blog: http://leahbellesrecipes.blogspot.com/2007/09/boiled-peanuts.html Cynthia Blue on at I can’t say I’ve ever had a boiled peanut! themommykelly on at Never had them! I do enjoy peanuts though. Hey, I’ve been browsing around here and love your posts. YOu should join us for Flaunt It Friday Tiggerlane on at I’ve NEVER had these…wow…they look yummy! Allison (aka AngelGal) on at They don’t look appetizing. I’m not a Southern Gal, though, so…maybe it’s an acquired taste? Maybe not…. Love the picture though, and your responses to people’s comments 🙂 Happy WW! smarmoofus on at I probably love ’em (I love roasted peanuts), but I’m allergic. So I have to leave ’em. *wistful sigh* Nan on at I have never had this very southern delicacy. It is very southern isn’t it? It seems very southern. What would I know though? I’m very northern. 6 years in Texas wasn’t enough to make me even mildly southern. It sounds like it would be yummy though! chrisb on at Not sure about this! Robin (the pensieve one) on at Jeanie, sounds like an awesome childhood memory to me :). Leah Belle, it always surprises and amuses me when, in rural little towns, you’ll pass a truck parked on the side of the road with someone selling “hot, boiled peanuts”; there are hundreds of these stops in SC, GA, and I suppose AL, too. Thanks for the invite MommyKelly :). Tiggerland, why do I think you’d like ’em? Allison, I think they ARE an acquired taste (one I don’t plan to get anytime soon!). Smarmoofus, somethings are better left unknown ;). Nan, you Canadian, you! 😉 Chris, me either ;).
