Guaranteed Worst in Town Since 1935


In 1935, Cromer's P-Nuts began at the farmer's market in depression-era Columbia, South Carolina by Julian D. Cromer.  Although he roasted a new batch of peanuts every morning, a rival farmer would yell out to his customers, "Cromer's are no good. Mine are the best!"  

Julian agreed and posted a sign above his peanuts that read "Guaranteed Worst in Town." Decades later, Cromer’s P-Nuts remains family-owned by Julian’s descendants and offers roasted and boiled peanuts, craft-popped popcorn, and other tasty treats. No one really knows what happened to the other farmer. But Cromer’s P-Nuts will always be, 'Guaranteed Worst in Town!'
