In 1935, Cromer's was founded by midlands South Carolina farmer Julian D. Cromer. Shortly thereafter, Cromer's took on near legendary status when he added fresh roasted peanuts to his produce stand at the Farmers Market in depression-era Columbia. Although Cromer insisted on roasting a new batch every morning, a competitor would yell out to his customers, "Don't buy those mine are the best! Cromer's are no good." Cleverly Cromer agreed and posted his own slogan, "Guaranteed Worst in Town." Curious people soon flocked to his stand to try "the worst."
