Little did he know that the small business he began in 1906 would grow into the world's grandest nut company. We have built our reputation and a powerful brand by offering superior quality and product innovation.
PLANTERS has been an American favorite for over 100 years. Whether you love PLANTERS Peanuts for their delicious peanut taste or their satisfying crunch, there’s a variety just for you.
Although its name implies it is a nut, peanuts are not true nuts but, instead, a member of a family of legumes related to peas, lentils, chickpeas and other beans. Peanuts start growing as a flower, but, because of their heavy weight after pollination, they bend toward and eventually go underground where the peanut matures. Although peanuts come in many varieties, there are four main types with specific size, taste and nutrient make-up; they include Runners, Virginia, Spanish and Valencia. Runners have become extremely popular because of their high yield. More than half of these peanuts are used for peanut butter. Virginias have the largest kernels and are typically the peanuts you find roasted in the shell or in snack bags. Spanish-type peanuts have smaller kernels and higher oil content than other types of peanuts and are covered with a reddish-brown skin. They are used mostly in peanut candies, some snack nuts and peanut butter. Valencias are a very sweet "nut" with three or more small kernels to a pod and are covered in a bright-red skin. They are usually roasted or boiled and sold in-the-shell.

Every time I buy Planters nuts, especially cashews since that's what I eat most, the nuts taste moldy. I find the MUCH less expensive store brand or off brand taste better too. Read morePublished 1 month ago by SHL
Great taste and packaging. I wish they had been a bit saltier, though others might think it would be too salty. Planters always makes a good product.Published 10 months ago by Dwightsan
We all eat cashews as they're extremely healthy - good fiber, magnesium and other great stuff - plus they taste great. It was hard to find this size where I live so this was great. Read morePublished 12 months ago by MEW
