It’s difficult to avoid noticing that there is never an announcement that a harvest was particularly good, therefore prices are going to fall.

Good thing I dislike peanuts and am not that big on peanut butter either. Except Reese’s. Which I haven’t had in about five years.

Now if the government didn’t have a quota and restrict who could grow peanuts, folks in areas who did have good weather might have had a decent harvest. Any idea why we have a peanut quota? Well to protect prices.

There is at least one individual who lives in NYC who owns peanut quota. ‘Splain that to me.

Good for the Jimmy Carter family and a handful of US peanut growers who are the beneficiaries of a Government imposed near-monopoly.

Yup, have noticed it here at our local Krogers. Planters jumped from 2.19 to 2.99 in just a matter of a couple of weeks.
Coffee.......that’s went higher than a hawks nest.

I can't eat peanut butter, or any kind of nut. I have a slice of pumpkin pie only on Thanksgiving.

I can understand that mothers with young children might be distressed at this, though.
