Subject: RE: BS: Whatever happened to salted peanuts?
Goober peas. We can buy small bags of them in vending machines here and tins or jars of them in grocery stores. The ones in shells are often available in grocery stores too.

When I was little, I sometimes went with my mom to pick up my dad after his late shift at 7 PM. He'd often buy me 'redskin' peanuts which came out of a glass peanut-arium. You put your $.10 in, positioned your paper bag under the chute, pulled a handle, and watched the glistening hot peanuts fill the bag.
