UNCLE BUD'S PEANUTS

Frequently Asked Questions

      Not all of these are really frequently asked questions. However, these are the questions that we wanted to answer. If you have other, legitimate questions, you can e-mail us at unclebudspeanuts@gmail.com. 

      Are peanuts a fruit or a vegetable?
      (Where did you go to school?) Neither. Peanuts belong to the Goober family, sometimes referred to as legumes. 

      Do I have to eat the shell n all, like the bag says? 
      No. When did you start reading what bags say? Besides, there is no controlling legal authority that requires you to eat the shell. However, it is highly encouraged because that's where a lot of the flavor is…you gotta at least lick it. 

      Why are your nuts so small? 
      (Why do you ask?) Actually, the variety of peanuts we use allows the frying process to render the shell crispy and edible. The red skinned kernel, though small, is sweeter than other varieties, which is why we use them. 

      Can I order single bags rather than a whole case? 
      Yes, we have updated the online ordering so you can order a single bag if you would like. However, Uncle Bud will pay the shipping on orders of $40.00 or more. They are good for 10 months. Just click on the order here button. 

      What flavors do you have? 
      We have Salted, which is, well, salted; Cajun, which has a distinct and flavorful Cajun flavor; Garlic, which leaves a long lasting and impressive garlic taste in your mouth. If you like garlic, you gotta try these. If you don't like garlic, there are other uses like spreading them around and using them for bug repellent. And for those who like hot peanuts, we have: Hot deep fried peanuts. Our Hot deep fried peanuts start out warm, get hot and remain so for the duration. Please be advised to keep copious amounts of your favorite beverage on hand to periodically extinguish any remaining taste buds.
