    ........ to decently sized packets of salted peanuts? :biggrin:

    There are any number of big bagfuls of crisps and snacky things available but I can only find dinky little bags of peanuts - Only just enough to enliven my tastebuds which will then demand a "proper helping" so I dare not purchase.

    Oh where oh where have they gone? :tongue:

    Due to the current economic climate peanuts are canceled.
     
  3. Don't be silly - go to Te£co - 1kg packets - perfect for making vats of peanut butter and crushing for flapjacks.

    The other day in Waitrose whilst looking for small packs of peanuts for a cycling day out, I could only find large packs! You just can't win!
     
  5. Ah! You must have been looking for quick release nuts Fab...

    In Nigeria peanuts (groundnuts) are sold in whisky bottles, roasted not salted. They are very tasty. Our driver Matthias gets them from his wife, they make me fat, especially as I always eat them with a pint or two of cold lager.

    I was looking for some raw ones for stir-frying the other day and couldn't find any. Anyone know where to get them (sans skins)?

    It's the same with pork scratchings. The standard size bag only gives you one or two mouthfuls. The next size up is a quarter of of a pound which is just greedy. But I usually manage...

    Well now - I have yet to complain about the 1 kg size packets. And I'm not being greedy - just having a sensible helping :sad: :tongue:
