These peanuts are the worst in town, guaranteed

Cromer's Peanuts was deemed the absolute worst in town many years ago.

Cromer’s Peanuts was started in 1935 by local Midlands South Carolina farmer Julian D. Cromer. He added fresh roasted peanuts to his produce stand at the Farmers Market. When his competition began to advertise that he had the best in town, Cromer decided that his peanuts must be the worst in town. That is how he became the “Guaranteed Worst in Town.”

Cromer’s P-Nuts is known for their boiled and roasted peanuts. They boil and roast their own peanuts in-house to ensure that you get the freshest products. Cromer’s is also known for their popcorn.

They pop fresh popcorn daily. The popcorn comes in a variety of flavors from Caramelcorn to Gamecock flavored and colored popcorn. Their cotton candy, candy apples, nostalgic candies and glass bottled sodas are also hits in the community.
