Detroit >Rocky Peanut Co
Love this place!. Have driven down from Grand Blanc 3-4 times a year to shop. Their bulk items are fresh and reasonably priced. They carry items I can't get here in my hometown.
Willy Wonka comes to Detroit. This place is soooo cool. I've been going there since I was a little kid and I still remember Rocky standing at the door greeting people. He recently passed away and his children are running it now. A great place, don't miss it when you come to the Eastern Market. Also they have great prices on nuts and dried fruit. Much cheaper and fresher than the supermarkets.
they carry every kind and any kind of candy you could ever think of...GUARANTEED. I was born and raised in Detroit Mi...and recently moved to Georgia .and for the last 35 years I have gone to the eastern market....which consists of different kinds of shops..and speciality stores...but one of my favorite stores in the whole market place was Rocky's. Peanut Co..I knew Mr Rocky he was always a hands on owner...mingleing with the customers and making sure everything was fresh and well stocked...you can find anything you need when it come to gourmet food items..and specialties items, every kind of candy you could ever think of...GUARANTEED...I miss it and am going to have to have some things sent down here to me......
Each step through the well-stocked aisles of this confectionery is an exercise in self-control..
While it's no surprise that the retail arm of this Eastern Market institution offers fresh-roasted peanuts, you'll also find bulk bins stuffed with penny candies, dried fruits and chocolates. A far cry from Jack Russo's door-to-door produce-selling venture, which started in 1931, the business remains in the family. The deli and grocery section of the store are stocked with delicacies, and the numerous candies make for extra temptation
