Why Peanuts Are the Perfect Tailgating Snack

We’ve been anxiously anticipating the return of football season this fall — not just for the action on the field, but for the delicious tailgating snacks! Hampton Farms peanuts are the ideal ingredient for crowd-pleasing, game-day dishes. Below, we’ve compiled four reasons to make peanuts this year’s go-to tailgate snack!

Peanuts Are Quick and Easy to Prepare

Peanuts are a great snack for any occasion. Put peanuts on the menu for your tailgate and you’ll spend less time prepping and more time enjoying the festivities. Impress your fellow fans with either Hampton Farms in-shell peanuts or gourmet nuts. And with a variety of flavors to choose from, even the pickiest eater is sure to find their MVP (most valuable peanut). 

Peanuts Are a Versatile Snack

Peanuts are a common ingredient in a wide range of dishes and treats. With an array of simple recipes to choose from, you can easily kick things off with a unique peanut-based dish, making your tailgate party one to remember. Also, no need to stick with plain peanuts when flexing your creative muscles in the kitchen. For your most innovative tailgate bites, try incorporating our assortment of nut butters into your favorite dishes.

Peanuts Offer Several Health Benefits

Peanuts offer numerous health benefits, which can provide some nutritional balance to notoriously unhealthy tailgate spreads. Peanuts are also an integral part of a healthy diet, as they’re an excellent source of monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. These fats have been found to help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood, lower your risk for neurodegenerative diseases and ease inflammation.

Peanuts Are a Good Source of Energy

Peanuts are a favorite snack of athletes because they are a wonderful source of energy. So why not eat what your favorite players eat for a little extra camaraderie? With more than 30 different vitamins and minerals, a single serving of peanuts provides valuable amounts of magnesium, phosphorus, niacin and fiber, all of which are essential to keeping your energy level up throughout the day’s festivities. Additionally, peanuts contain more protein than any other nut, helping you stay fuller for longer, ensuring that you make it to the fourth quarter.


Hampton Farms has been delivering the freshest, best quality peanuts from seed to shelf since 1917. Our business is family-owned and operated, and we are committed to producing the finest peanut-based snacks and services with integrity, honesty and the pride of American farmers.
