Hi there--I’m Lindsey, I’m 26 and live in Georgia. While my home state is the top peanut-producer in the US, I had never been to a peanut farm.

When or why Southerners started boiling peanuts no one knows exactly. But good ideas have a way of spreading and, today, Southerners know how great boiled peanuts are. Not only are boiled peanuts called “the caviar of the South,” but they are also the official state snack of South Carolina.

To keep our energy levels up, each meal and snack should contain a good proportion of carbohydrates (the more whole grain or fruit/veggie based, the better), protein and good fats.

Not to mention, it is shelf stable so packing it for lunch or a snack makes it more portable than most options.
