A & M Peanut Shop, Mobile
I have always loved roasted peanuts, but I don't think I had had any that were still warm. My grandmother would have loved these! We called her "Grans" and she had a love for roasted peanuts like none other. Once we took her to a Braves baseball game and she wanted to know what to do with the peanut shells as she ate her roasted peanuts. We told her to just throw them on the concrete floor under her....well that did not set well with her! She had a Mr. Peanut cup that all the grand kids fought over....even when she died. My cousin beat me to it, but I just bought me one like it at an antique shop and pretend it is the one I drank out of as a child. My other grandmother had Mr. Peanut salt and pepper shakers. I guess Mr. Peanut was big in his day!
I have been to a Peanut Shop in Memphis for their snow cones.....I wonder if they have Hot Peanuts? Hmmmmmm
