Greensboro, NC - You'll go nuts over our peanuts! That's the slogan of Carolina Select Nuts in Greensboro.
Every week, owner Kathy McKeithan roasts and handcrafts small batches of jumbo, redskin peanuts. The raw nuts come from growers in North Carolina and Virginia. McKeithan said, "They're the biggest and best I can get!"
McKeithan started the company five years ago. She makes two varieties: Original (salted) and the new flavor, Carolina Hots. "They have a nice kick," explained McKeithan.
She produces her peanuts in the Triad but they're shipped all over the country. She said, ""We're as far away as a bookstore in Maine, a hundred year old hardware store in Texas and a butcher shop in California."
Carolina Select Nuts can be found at many specialty stores in the Triad including The Fresh Market. More information can be found on the company's website www.carolinaselectnuts.com
