For years we've played around with some unique flavor combinations. But, it wasn't until we came across Ghost Pepper that we found a truly HOT flavor that we liked. Ghost Peppers are the hottest peppers in the world, and we've combined that heat with the smoky heat of the Habanera Pepper and the sweet heat of Paprika to create a frighteningly hot recipe. Named after Weeping Mary Road and Weeping Mary Church in Bertie County, our new Weeping Mary's Ghost Pepper Peanuts are a fiery treat that are definitely unique.

The Weeping Mary Ghost Pepper Peanuts...spicy but not over-powering. They have a building and lasting effect. My coworkers tried and enjoyed them! Will definitely buy some more.

We have long enjoyed the various Bertie County Peanuts products. I ordered the Weeping Mary 30 oz for Christmas, and here we are, out of them by Jan. 3. We just loved them and I'm back to place my next order for a case of these fantastic peanuts. You really hit the mark with the flavor of these peanuts!!

I have a love-hate relationship with your peanuts. On one hand, they are delicious. On the other hand, they burn! I will say they are a tasty snack, great gift, and a necessity around the time your sinuses need some relief. Will be a customer for as long as you make them!
Nov 29, 2013 | By C.J.Fagnan
These peanuts are very hot, I absolutely cannot eat them with out a cold beer to temper the effects on the taste buds, but cannot stop eating them. They are Terrific.

Ghost Pepper Review
Dec 6, 2013 | By Ken
I actually got these for my 37 year old son; he's not a fan of really, really spicy food but said all he wanted for Christmas was these peanuts. I bought them for him last year thinking he might like them. He's easy to buy for now.
Dec 18, 2013 | By Patricia Toti
My son-in-law and husband love Weeping Mary's Ghost Pepper Peanuts.
Hot, but not too hot
Dec 23, 2013 | By Olah
Great spicy peanuts with just the right balance of heat. Don't let the label fool you; these are hot but not too hot for an anytime snack. My favorite snack! Great company too!

Just the Best!
Jan 10, 2014 | By Steve Reavis
I was introduced to your Weeping Mary peanuts about a year ago and fell in love with them! They have just the right heat but the best thing is the quality of your peanuts. They are so far and away better than commercial brands I can't hardly eat Planter's any longer. While I'm not sure you could improve on your product and I understand why you charge a premium price for a premium product, I do wish that you could offer a more economical shipping cost. Otherwise, I love your product and love your service!
Owner Response:Thanks for the kind words! And we agree about the shipping. We are looking for a reasonable answer.
Jan 20, 2014 | By Robert Bomar
Very tasty. Just the right amount of subtle heat. I got the 1st jar as a gift and promptly ordered 4 more.
Jan 20, 2014 | By Trish Williams
Absolutely delicious! Cannot stop eating them.
Jan 27, 2014 | By Ella Ramsey
Spices too HOT for me, did not enjoy as other nuts purchased.
Jan 30, 2014 | By Buddah
I am now on my 5th order of these ghost pepper spiced peanuts, and can't get enough. If you love peanuts and love a little kick, then look no further than these awesome peanuts. I can truly say these are the best spiced peanuts I have ever had.

Feb 24, 2014 | By Robert Bomar
The spicy flavor and the unique taste have gotten to me. My daughter gave me a jar for Christmas and I have ordered 4 more...twice. Beware, you too could become addicted to these peanuts! I heartily recommend them.

Mar 3, 2014 | By William
If you like spicy peanuts, these are the best!!! Sometimes you get food items that say spicy, but they are not spicy at all. These have real KICK!! And they have great flavor. They're not just spicy, they're flavorful too.
Weeping Mary's Really HOT
Mar 13, 2014 | By John Gerlach
Don't test taste one or two, and before waiting a few moments just stuff a handful in. They are tasty but they are HOT!
Mar 17, 2014 | By candi cavender
These are HOT, but I did get 2 people to order some from you
Excellent Spicy Peanuts
Mar 21, 2014 | By Mark Hann
Heard about your Ghost Spicy Peanuts after hearing about them on the Big O & Dukes Podcast. Ordered 2 30oz jars and they did not disappoint. Excellent flavor and just enough heat. I will definitely be ordering again : )
May 15, 2014 | By Kent
Absolutely delicious. In my opinion they are just the right amount of spicy and salty.
May 16, 2014 | By Mike Nelson
Excellent flavor - the hot kind of creeps up on you but it mellows out after a few minutes. Which is good because you will definitely want some more!

Ghost pepper is the hot of all hots. These nuts have just the right amount.
Nov 23, 2014 | By Leslie
If you like heat, these peanuts have an awesome flavor. These peanuts are fresh and high-quality.
Dec 11, 2014 | By Todd Schwenke
Great peanuts but the shipping is a killer. Why not use the USPS one price shipping boxes. They are free and the weight for the differing boxes is quite large. They will even drop off and pick up the boxes.
Owner Response:We are exploring that option. However, in the past the USPS has not been very reliable with package delivery and tracking of packages has been spotty at best. Additionally, very few of our products fit their boxes.
Weeping Mary's Ghost Peppers Peanuts are a hit!

Awesome if you like HOT!
Dec 13, 2014 | By Wade Wallace
These things are hot! I love them. Can't each too much at a time until you lose the flavor of the peanut. We add M&Ms and raisins to these and it's awesome. Thank you!

Jan 13, 2015 | By Partha Sarathy
The hot nuts are a bit too salty and the nuts are shriveled up. Not happy with the purchase.
Owner Response:Sorry to see that you did not like one of our best sellers. We'll be in touch regarding our 100% guarantee.

some good some bad
Jun 5, 2015 | By Todd Schwenke
Your peanuts ane all great but your shipping method is a bit odd. The 2 jars of peanuts I purchased would have easily fit into a large USPS one price box. They are free and will be picked up at your place of business. Seems this would be more cost effective for you and the customer
Jun 11, 2015 | By Monica
My favorite peanuts!!

I always order the Ghost Pepper nuts and have never been disappointed. Everyone I serve them to say they are highly addictive!!
Weeping Mary FTW
Oct 20, 2015 | By Matthew
A friend of mine told me about Bertie peanuts so I decided to try them for myself. The Weeping Mary peanuts are amazing. I am buying a case of the 30oz jars every month. The only downside is the shipping price. Other than that the peanuts are amazing. I'm giving 4 stars only because of the shipping charges.
Oct 20, 2015 | By JENNIFER
WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THE WEEPING MARY'S GHOST PEPPER PEANUTS WERENT VERY HOT BUT EXTREMELY SALTY. THEY ARE GOOD I WILL ENJOY THEM JUST THOUGHT THEY WOULD BE HOTTER. WILL DEFINATLEY ORDER OTHER PRODUCTS. THE QUALITY OF THE PEANUTS IS EXCELLENT!

Best Spicy Nuts ever
Nov 2, 2015 | By William
These peanuts are the best. My favorite healthy, low-carb afternoon snack. Really spicy, and have a little bit of a smoky taste from the ghost pepper, without the florally taste typical of habanero. Get some!
Nov 8, 2015 | By Jinnett Kroeger
Hands down, my all time favorite peanuts!
Nov 25, 2015 | By Bill W
I came across these while searching for spicy peanuts after Mr. Peanut discontinued his 5 Alarm peanuts. I owe that man as I never would have found these! I've gone through multitudes of 30oz jars since. Once started, I cannot stop eating them. I like spicy stuff and these are magnificent! My wife and I love the flavorful spiciness and they are addicting.
Enjoy these large peanuts.
Dec 4, 2015 | By Virginia Peterson
Bertie County Peanuts are the only peanuts my Grandchildren enjoy.

Just the Right Amount of Heat
Jan 24, 2016 | By Will
Just hot enough to surprise you the first time but not so hot that you don't keep eating. These are just right with a little heat on the back end.
Jan 26, 2016 | By Oscar
This is your best product in my opinion. I love these ghost pepper peanuts. The heat is just right and the flavor is out of this world. Thank you.

Your Product and a Concern
Jun 18, 2016 | By Steve Reavis
First off, I love your products! Though they are pricey I am so addicted to them that I can't eat Planter's or any other peanut. Now for the concern. On my latest order I failed to initially change the "Ship To" to my new address. Totally my fault. I caught this the next day but your office had already closed. I called your shipper, FedEx, and explained my situation. They said you guys would need to call them the next day to have the package re-routed. I called the next morning and spoke with a very nice lady. She contacted FedEx and called me back to say the package would be re-routed. This did not occur. I called FedEx to complain and got no satisfaction. I ended up having to drive to the old address to pick up my order. While you guys did everything you could I wanted you to know about the worthless service your shipper provided. One of the reasons I don't order from you more often is the price of shipping. I am still displeased with FedEx on this one. If I could find a regular source here in Raleigh for my preferred Weeping Mary's I would buy them and avoid the shipping but I have been unable to locate a source. I'll give your product a 5 star rating but the shipper gets a negative 5!
Owner Response:Thanks for letting us know about the problem - we're looking into it now. And, we're glad you like the Ghost Pepper Peanuts!
Jun 20, 2016 | By Mark Lopez
You need a cheaper way to ship i dont need them the next day shiping cost was about half as much as jar of peanuts
Owner Response:We're looking into other options for folks who don't mind waiting several days. Stay tuned!

Jul 12, 2016 | By Ruchard
I love every peanut selection by Bertie County but my absolute favorite are the Weeping Mary hot peanuts! Tasty and a solid zing. The heat keeps my consumption moderated too. If you like spicy-hot you will love these.
One of a kind
Jul 14, 2016 | By chris
I found these nuts on an out-of-town trip a couple of years ago and they have been on my mind ever since. They are spicy while still being delicious and nothing else compares. I have been ordering them ever since!
Jul 30, 2016 | By Robert Montgomery
I bought a jar of the weeping Mary's had them eaten within the day had to go back and order 4 more and my friends liked them so much they took mine. These are the best hot peanuts I have ever had.
Aug 4, 2016 | By Steve Reavis
As always, LOVE your product! Your peanuts are so good that I can no longer eat Planter's or other national brands. My only complaint is your shipping costs but I'm guessing there is not much you can do about those when you are having to deal with the sharks at FedEx!
Nuts for PNUTS

Weeping Mary Ghost Pepper peanuts are the best. I brought some in to work and 30 oz were gone in two days. I can't wait until I can get some chocolate covered ones.

I have been buying spicy peanuts for years, with all the brands tried they have been left wanting. Came across these GHOST PEPPER several months ago and am sold on them. I'm hispanic and I enjoy hot food, and these are the hottest I ever found. If you enjoy hot food I highly recommend these.

Nov 1, 2016 | By Oscar
Wow! I've had your ghost pepper peanuts before and just loved them. This batch is no different. I can't stop eating them. They are hot, but I love hot. (Some in my family don't like hot.)
Nov 4, 2016 | By Ron Miller
Weeping Mary's peanuts are the reason I became a devoted fan and will continue to try new offerings but these are my reason for ordering multiple times
Dec 8, 2016 | By Todd Schwenke
Great service but shipping still to costly
Love your product, but...
Dec 11, 2016 | By Steve
Your products are peerless, second to none! But, as I have noted in other reviews, your shipping costs are ridiculous! Keeps me from ordering unless and until you put the Weeping Mary's on sale! I know there is a cost to ship stuff, just wish you could make that burden a little easier on your customers! I will rate the product as "5 Star" but the shipping costs get a negative 5!
Owner Response:We agree 100%! Unfortunately, as a small family business we don't receive the sweet shipping deals of the large, multinational companies. We simply pass on the charges with no attempt to make any money off the shipping. Additionally, we review our shipping charges and contracts each spring. Thanks for your thoughts!

Discovered these at the Southern Christmas Show - Husband loved them and we ordered for both of our Dad's (The Ghost Pepper Peanuts - YUM!)

Perfect level and type of "heat", addictively hot. Loved by everyone I give a jar to.
