Featured in the State and on WLTX, "Peanut Man" Chris Hinely and his family proudly vend their boiled-peanut staple and a smile-inducing selection of sweet and salty noshables. Crafted by Chris Hinely’s wife Carrie, various treats lounging in the large display cases at the front of the store include cocoa-draped candies such as pralines, strawberries, and pretzels, as well as nuggets of pure rich chocolate and more. A two-pound bag of fresh-popped buttered popcorn suits patrons ready to view a series of movies or appease a pride of stampeding elephants. Modeling their business after historic, homey candy stores, the Hinelys encourage customers to bring their kids, sit down, and enjoy their purchase while watching candy be made in-house.
Chris Hinely started selling boiled peanuts after he and his wife decided to pursue a labor of lovely deliciousness two years ago. After fraught attempts to sell from a mobile cart, he and Carrie invested an entire bathtub’s worth of buffalo-head nickels and collectible Andrew Jackson bobblehead dolls to obtain a permanent storefront at the Village and whip up delectable dainties.
