  • Fred's is truly a neat place! Roasted, boiled, fried peanuts, peanut brittle, cider, pralines, honey and more. We really enjoyed our time talking to Fred's nephew, who now runs the stand. The quality ...  more »
  • The peach cider was delicious. Peanut and pecan brittle was very good and doesn’t stick to your teeth. Great country atmosphere. Of course the boiled peanuts were great also. Great service!  more »
  • We found this place by chance as we passed it on the way to Anna Rudy Falls. If you are looking for a good snack, I would highly recommend stopping by. We bought fried peanuts (delicious) and a frozen...  more »

  • Love coming here. We always make sure to stop for boiled peanuts when up in the mountains. They have regular and Cajun and the Cajun ones are amazing! Awesome local honey, fried peanuts, peanut brittle, peach cider, and so much more! The staff is very welcoming and nice they enjoy telling stories and offering samples to all their products.
  • Pretty sure I've reviewed this place. Neat tiny country store beside the road between Helen and Unicoi State Park. Principle attraction, as the name suggests, is the many assorted ways to get peanuts, but they offer so much more---much more than you can expect from such a tiny shop! But I guess the best part is the family that owns the place. They love you and welcome you right in like you are long-lost family members! This is one place I stop in at during any visit to the area. Got there too late first time by last trip up there so I made it a point to drive back over the next day and say hello. They seemed awful pleased to see us! Really added to our vacation experience--as always.
  • They got boiled, they got roasted, they even have hot boiled peanuts fresh out of the pot!
  • This place is super cute. Staff very friendly. Their boiled peanuts really are the best. Also really love their peach cider and frozen peach cider. We loved their boiled peanuts and cider so much that we went back another day to get more while on vacation in the area.
  • The man working is so friendly and helpful. They sell more than boiled peanuts. I bought pickled corn and a tshirt too (as gifts). The nuts were delicious. My first time trying them so I cant compare them to others.
