About Us

Hawks Nuts Inc. was established in December of 1995 by the Hawks family. Paul and Marlene wanted to make a boiled peanut that was consistent with southern culture and would become a southern staple like church and Sunday afternoon BBQ’s.

Marlene and Paul spent months working on the right spice mixtures, soaking, and cooling times. After all the hard work, recipes and time frames were agreed upon, Hawks Boiled Peanuts was born and started serving the Tampa area with 5lb. bags of delicious boiled peanuts.

Now almost 20 years later, Paul comes in for special projects but has left the day to day operations of the company to Marlene and their son, Matthew.

In addition to the 5lb. bag, we now offer 1 and 2lb. bags and a #10 can.

So if you are looking for a GREAT snack for football, or a weekend get together, or you have never tried any of our products before, we invite you to do so. If you are a loyal customer we say “Thank You” for your trust and continued support. Always remember, if you are looking for quality products that are always fresh and never compromise taste, just grab a bag of Hawks Boiled Peanuts, you won’t be disappointed.
