More on regional food preferences and fanfare. Here is a story about goobers. At County Stadium in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the old home of the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team, fans one of their peanuts served up in a specific way. Back in the 1950s food vendors learned that their customers wanted peanuts salted in the shell. So they came up with a method which involved soaking peanuts in a salted brine solution and until the salt penetrated the shell. By the way, my son and I picked up a sizable .99 cent bag of peanuts salted in the shell at a Trader Joe's in Cambridge. It appeared to be a new product. The bag of peanuts tasted great and served us well as we watched a Harvard football practice. What are your Stadium food memories from your childhood?
