Upon recommendation from locals I purchased these from a convenience store. (They are available at just about any gas station you come across in the South.)

It was interesting to chew through the shell and the nut, and I enjoyed the cajun flavor, but I did not find the boiled peanuts to offer much more than just shelling them as I eat them.
