Have you tried the canned boiled peanuts? I have not. I'm sure they're not the same as fresh. I thought I'd had boiled peanuts until I looked them up.
I'm not sure what kind of peanuts we usually get when we go to NC, but they are definitely not wet. They are shelled and missing the reddish seed coat, lightly salted if at all, and not like the roasted peanuts we get here in the NW (they're somewhat harder). Delicious.
Now edamame - that stuff is awesome. We eat it all of the time, my kids love it too. I can pack some frozen ones in their lunch and they munch them at school. Of course they'll eat them when they're frozen too, and frozen peas as well. Kids are funny.
