Go­ing nuts in Childers IGA for peanuts

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page - Jodie Dixon Jodie.Dixon@isistc­news.com.au

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.
