Co-op Connections Spotlight: Bakers Southern Traditions Peanuts

Editor’s note: Roanoke Electric Cooperative recognizes the important role local businesses play in our local economy.  They are owned and operated by your neighbors and help build strong communities by bringing growth and innovation to the area.  To celebrate the locally-owned establishments, Roanoke Electric will provide a monthly spotlight, highlighting local businesses that participate in our Co-op Connections Program.

Are you looking for a unique gift at a discounted price this holiday season? The Co-op Connections program offers a way to do just that by connecting consumers to participating local shops and businesses.

This month, Roanoke Electric Co-op turns the community spotlight on Bakers Southern Traditions Peanuts in Roxobel, N.C., which is offering member-owner participants a 10% discount on any purchase.

“Bakers Southern Traditions appreciates the opportunity to partner with Roanoke Electric and the Co-op Connections program,” said one of the owners, Danielle Baker. “We believe in giving back to the community by providing top-notch products and outstanding customer service. The holidays are where customer-focused, local businesses like us shine.”

Since 2009, the shop has provided high-quality, home-grown Virginia peanuts to the community.

Not just any peanuts, these nuts come in unique flavors including Carolina Cajun, Salted Redskin, Blister Fried, Pumpkin Spice, and Chocolate Covered. One of their most popular items, Better Bites, offers the perfect combination of homemade caramel and chopped peanuts, cut into bite-size morsels and dipped into decadent white chocolate.

In addition, Bakers Southern Traditions Peanuts offers carefully curated sweet and savory gift boxes that can be shipped anywhere in the United States. They even work with individuals and corporate clients on custom orders, ensuring that the right combination of taste and quality are served on a holiday entertaining table or wrapped up with a bow under the tree.
