Going nuts in Childers IGA for peanuts
LOCALS are going nuts over the nutty delicious taste of Kingaroy peanuts.
Childers very famous peanut nut van has had a huge demand from customers that now customers can purchase their locally grown peanuts in Childers IGA.
Peanut van owner Chris Patch said everyone has their own favourite flavour and there’s plenty to choose from.
“It’s great to be supplying quality products to IGA and we appreciate the support,” Mrs Patch said.
Deb Mahoney, owner and manager of Childers IGA, said IGA supported local farmers and business “as it’s the farmers that shop with us”.
“It’s important to stock quality local products, we all want to know where our food comes from,” she said.
Mrs Patch said her plan is to stock the Kingaroy flavoured peanuts in all IGA stores in Queensland.
The variety of flavours will match every flavour taste, from spicy to zesty.
It is rumoured store owner Bruce Mahoney has his taste buds tuned into the lime flavour.
Possible comments flood their Facebook page with one pleased customer saying:
“Stopped into the peanut van at Childers on the way home a holiday and was blown away by the variety of products they were selling and the service by the lovely lady that was on that day. Couldn't wait to try the different types of peanuts I had brought, the different flavours are amazing and the quality was excellent.”
“Definitely dropping back into there next time I go through Childers, recommend anyone to stop in and get some stuff won't be disappointed,” said customer Edward Curtis.
Owners Rob and Chris Patch, a Kingaroy peanut farming family, took over The Peanut Van and swore to maintain the same quality and environmental standards for the customers. The promise was kept. The Peanut Van has tried to build on a legacy by continuing to expand the business ever since.
In May 2000 they opened the website, allowing customers to order Peanut Van supplies over the Internet for the first time.
