Scrump BS: Much ado about nuttin' (44) RE: BS: Much ado about nuttin' 15 Mar 07

No, Scrump, you are not alone in that memory. They were very oily (would easily soak through the supposedly greaseproof paper bag) and pretty salty too. Our Woolworths had a peculiarly 50s device to heat them, a sort of flat glass tray about 5" high held together at the corners by chrome bows which met at a light fitting that hung over the nuts. I think they did cashews too, but nobody I knew could afford those, so they were probably even more stale than the peanuts usually were.

Ah, thanks for reminding me, gnomad. I could remember the metal tray thing with the lamp over it, but I'd forgotten about the cashews. You're right, I can't ever remember buying them in those days. I think the peanuts were 4d a quarter (or was it only 2oz?)
