Deep Fried Peanuts are a snack food created by deep frying peanuts in an oil. The resulting product is a snack food that can be eaten in its entirety, both shell and nut. The deep-frying process does not change the flavor or texture of the nutmeats, but changes the texture and flavor of the shells -- especially if seasonings are used -- to make them more palatable.

Most companies have common seasonings applied to the shell after deep frying. Flavors available include: Salted, Barbecue, Cajun, Garlic, Hot Pepper, Salt & Vinegar, and Caramel coated.

Shell and all[edit]
