I used to stop in the Planter's Peanut Store in downtown Columbus where they roasted nuts. And I remember one in Charleston, West Virginia and another in New Haven, Connecticut.
Sure do have fond memories of freshly roasted peanuts at several Planters. I recall one on Main St in Hartford, CT on the corner, across from G Fox and another one downtown in New Bedford, MA. Last one I recall going to is back in the mid 70's at a mall off Rt 46 near Dover, NJ.
for some (past) locations.
Freshly roasted (hot) peanuts, now that was a treat, unlike the chemically treated stuff they pass off in jars today.
