Overview

At The Peanut Shop of Sarasota all of our Virginia Peanuts are prepared by our Roastmaster in small batches, using the same time-honored recipes. A roasting process that cannot be duplicated by mass production methods. We hand cook our fine peanuts in pure golden peanut oil with no additives or preservatives to alter the natural goodness. We also offer other variety of nuts such as cashews, pecans, almonds, walnuts and mixed nuts. More than 68 flavors to choose from, in addition to gourmet foods, jams, jellies and sauces....and of course 100% pure peanut butter!

There are many varieties to choose from. Samples are abundant as it makes your choice harder to decide. Bought many peanuts and raisins

What is great about this place is the wide selection of free samples! And they ENCOURAGE you to try them. Just because of that we bought four cans (buy 3 and get 1 free)! They were delicious. This is a MUST VISIT location!
