These peanuts are the best. They are made in the back of our family show store, The Boston Shoe Store. They have recently introduced a website so that those who live far away can enjoy them as well.
We use them for mocha cakes, ice cream topping and cookies. They are delicious by themselves or
The internationally known "Bernardini's Peanuts" came into existence over 100 years ago when Luigi Bernardini emigrated from Lucca, Italy to Calais, Maine. In Calais, Luigi began the legacy of deep frying extra large Virginia redskins in a blend of vegetable oil and olive oil on a daily basis which admirers to this day call "the best peanuts ever." Thousands of tons have been sold, and his legacy is continued today by his second and third generation offspring.
Peanuts are a great alternative to other snack foods. Peanuts are cholesterol free, high in protein, and contain the compound resveratrol, which has been found to help reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Not only are they delicious and enjoyable, an ounce a day could keep the doctor away.
Not enough can be said for freshness. Bernardini's peanuts are shipped the same day they are processed. Customers are receiving FRESHLY COOKED PEANUTS!!!!! They are packaged in poly lined bags and have a shelf life of 14-20 days or 2 months for vacuum sealed bags. Peanuts can be frozen and freezing extends the shelf life for months.
