Do you eat the peanut shells?

Recently I bought a pack of these:


Roasted peanuts with shells. I'm on a tight budget so whenever possible I do my best to not throw food away, and thus I eat the shells of peanuts (among other things such as lemons and sometimes bananas). The shell is quite good, not much flavour perhaps but easy to chew. I'm not sure about the nutritional value of the shells, but they're bound to provide some fiber at least.

If you are presented peanuts with shells, do you eat the shell or peel the nut?

...No.

I guess I can sort of see people doing that over some other items (how on earth do you choke down a banana peel?), but it still seems incredibly bizarre.

Same with eating cupcake wrappers or shrimp skins.

No, because that's a really bad idea.
Dude no. What the hell is up with people eating hard shit like bone marrow and apple core??
Erm, bone marrow and apple core aren't hard... the marrow itself is very soft, you just crack the bone to get to it. Apple cores aren't even close...

Peanut shells have next to no nutritional value and could cause intestinal problems over time. I mean yeah you could do it the same way you could eat shrimp tails and apple cores but why?

lol wtf eating the shell is entirely safe. they salt it for a reason.
The shells aren’t salted for you to eat. They are only incidentally salted, because salting peanuts in the shell requires soaking them in salt water.

Eating peanut shells is dangerous. You could easily have intestinal damage or a puncture. Don’t do it.

I eat shrimp tails

in fact, if you know anything about fried seafood, you should be eating them too

Hell no.

1) Don't be a weirdo.

2) I ate a bunch of sunflower seeds with the shells one time and it resulted in a horrible, jagged mess come expulsion time.

3) Enjoy your pesticides!

That's boring tho.

Anyway, yeah, I eat the shells. Not every one, it gets to be too much, but like every 3rd or 4th peanut usually.
ditto, the salt can get overwhelming but its nice to eat a whole peanut with shell to mix it up now and then

peanuts are best when shelled, ill admit that. but they're damn good in the shell too.

A quick internet search reveals that the shells are not digestible and can create intestinal blockages. I’m good on this one my man.
