For $4, today's side deal gets you $8 worth of candy, nuts, and more at The Peanut Shoppe of Akron. A downtown mainstay, The Peanut Shoppe of Akron uses its original 1930s roaster to craft its nut-centric concoctions, which are roasted daily. Take a tongue dive into sacs of unsalted or salted cashew halves ($6.95 per pound), salted almonds ($6.95 per pound), or brazil nuts ($7.95), or adorn improperly dressed bread slices with sandwich-appropriate spreads, such as freshly ground almond butter ($6.95 per pound) or peanut butter ($2.95 per pound). Sweet seekers can scoop up candies of all varietals, including candy corn, spice gumdrops, and sour gummy worms ($2.95 per pound each), while health-conscious hungerers can munch on banana chips ($2.95 per pound) and sugar-free chocolate peanuts or raisins ($7.95 per pound).
The Peanut Shoppe of Akron's owner was featured in Akron Life and Leisure earlier this year:
- Klein and her crew, Bob Peacock, Debra Keyser and Sandy Kitchen—three employees with a combined seniority of more than 60 years—still use 1930s peanut roasters to cook 20 pound batches of unsalted peanuts in their shells each day. Cashews, almonds, pecans and shelled peanuts are fresh roasted daily, too. – Jane Day, Akron Life and Leisure
