The Curious Story of Clawed Peanuts

Some stories are too fantastical to seem true, but take it from us – this one’s legit. Recently we stumbled upon an interesting product known as clawed peanuts. As an authority on peanut products, these curious kernels had us scratching our heads. We had never heard of, or tasted a peanut with such a unique flavor. A subsequent search into the origins of this product revealed a fascinating story about a decades-old recipe, a professional organ grinder, and a white-faced Capuchin monkey named George. If only we could make this up.
