If you’ve worked up an appetite trudging around downtown, a bag of fresh-roasted peanuts (or any of the other hundred snacks) from the Peanut Shop will hit the spot. This tiny Arcade shop has been in business since 1927, roasting more nuts than you’ve ever seen and fashioning some treats you may not have, including maple nut goodies and butter brittle. Originally one of 2,000 Planters stores, it’s one of only four originals still operating. The scales used in the shop date back to the late 1930s, and the peanut roaster, named Little Bertha, is also original. Take them up on the free tastes they offer; opinions on what works (and what doesn’t) can vary widely. Tip: The Arcade alleyway is inexplicably shuttered on weekends, so hit the shop Monday to Friday.
