    This is a roadside treasure. Nothing fancy. Just fresh peanuts, prepared anywhere from roasted to boiled.  more »

    Fred's is a great roadside stand that is worth going out of the way for. The boiled peanuts are great, but I go for the amazing pork rinds. I bought 10 bags on my last visit and want more already.

    Best peanuts around. You gotta stop by Fred's for some boiled peanuts to munch on during trip to Unicoi State Park. The staff is always friendly, the Peanuts are always phenomenal and you never know who you might bump into at Fred's. They also have a selection of other items to plunder through. I have seen hats for sale, ceramic wares, local honey, crafts, sodas and more.
