I am a boiled peanut Vendor in Glenville, North Carolina, on highway 107 at the Marina. I came up with the four stages of a Boiled Peanut Addiction, look and see where you're at.

First Stage: Your friend gives you some of his boiled peanuts to try, you decide that "those were Good!"

Second Stage: you see a Hot Boiled Peanut Sign while you are driving down the road, you slam on brakes, turn around and go back and get some.

Third Stage: You Scour the net looking for the recipes on how to make your own Hot Boiled Peanuts. You find Boiled Peanut World. You make your own boiled peanuts.

Fourth Stage: You get to where I am. You open your own Hot Boiled Peanut Stand on the side of the road. You have found a way to get everybody else to support you addiction!

I guess the next stage is when you get your very own Peanut Farm.

After all they are "JUST PEANUTS"

Don't think you're addicted yet? Come by my stand and I will help you get addicted. Don't like them at all, I have a Fresh Roasted Peanut Machine, just for you.

Cajun Boiled Peanuts have been my addiction over 10 years now. But I never thought about selling them or making them myself! I'm so picky about the spicy flavor I get from the gas station on USAFB in Mississippi. They are my comfort food.
