The 800-pound “World’s Largest Boiled Peanut,” which was made by local residents last year, was recently featured on an episode of the A&E television show “Shipping Wars.” The show featured the Styrofoam peanut being transported from the South of the Border tourist trap in Dillon to Cahill’s Market in Bluffton in preparation for the Boiled Peanut Festival Aug. 23. While being loaded onto the truck, the peanut rolled off the flatbed and cracked. The damaged nut can be seen next to the chicken coop at Cahill’s. Repair costs have been estimated at just $150.
