This should be a runaway, but the FFA has gotten easy ones wrong before.

Both have their place but if I had to choose I’m taking Dry Roasted

I’ll take dry roasted 6 out of 7 days a week. 

Give me honey roasted otherwise though. Those are crazy addictive and I can’t buy them for that reason. I grew up with a friend who would have one of those enormous tins on his living room coffee table all the time and I would go (ahem) nuts on them any time I was there.

Cocktail, but honey roasted are far superior imo.

Planters, the Budweiser of peanuts.

They should do a joint ad and have Mr. Peanut riding a Clydesdale.

Boiled peanuts are some type of prank Southerners play on tourists. Totally disgusting.

I support all joint ads.

There was an old black guy that sold all types of peanuts outside of Comerica Park, I remember telling my buddy I was going to try the boiled one time and he said “do you like peas?”

he was notorious for misleading me on things so I proudly walked up and asked for an order of Boiled Peanuts.  I got an Are You Sure type of look as he repeated “Boiled?”.  I nodded yes and he had to motion over to someone to go retrieve them form a nearby truck so I know right there I had made a bad decision 

they were awful (and I’ll eat just about anything).  I was tempted to give them to a homeless person but I didn’t want him to think I was playing some sick joke on him so I just tossed them

Yup. I got them somewhere in the Georgia years ago at a roadside stand. Had been seeing signs for them and thought I like peanuts, I like local delicacies. Completely disgusting. Would rather have eaten the bag they were in.

Dry Roasted if I'm eating them for health reasons.  Cocktail peanuts if I'm eating them for flavor.

Ya'll are nuts. I love boiled peanuts.  I boil a 30 lb sack every year and freeze them.  For the purposes of this thread though, I went dry roasted.  It was a close call though.

I'm shocked with these results.  Do you people wash down the dry roasted peanuts with extra pulp OJ? :angry:

Germack salted in-shell or Honey Toasted for the win.

But I voted dry roasted.

Side topic:  I love Salt and Pepper Pistachios.  They are the best.  But how do they get the salt and pepper in them?  :confused:

I'll eat dry roasted but they sometimes have a weird flavor to me. Cocktail for me. Always consistent and prefect saltiness.

Their regular Cajun peanuts were good, I don’t believe there was a Cajun boiled version

So you're the one walking around getting all that grease on the doorknobs.

We had to give them up due to constipation issues. Got plugged up pretty good a few years back and almost went to the ER. Can eat one or two but that's about it.

Cocktail peanuts are way better.  The dry roasted are way too salty and almost have a sawdust texture once you start chewing them.  

Neither compare to peanuts in the shell

I real southern will pronounce them "Bald Penuts"  No hairy nuts for The Southern Man.

Masking the taste/texture with some nice cajun seasoning would help but still GROSS!

Really?  They have the exact opposite affect on my.  Every so often I go on a peanut binge and will eat a jar at a sitting (not sure why, just every so often get a craving for peanuts).  Will definitely make me "regular"

Nuts, cheese, jerky. Can't pass it.

Cocktail for sure. I don't get the dry roasted thing.

Preferring dry roasted makes about as much sense as preferring baked potato chips over fried.

How anyone can think dry roasted tastes better than cocktail peanuts is hard to fathom.
