As some of you know, I live in Simi Valley, not even in San Diego County anymore. Yes, that makes me a carpetbagger. Anyway, it makes it all the more strange to be at the grocery store and be presented with San Diego Padres branded peanuts. For a minute I wasn’t sure where I was. Then I saw Dodgers Peanuts and Angels Peanuts and it made some more sense. These peanuts are made by Hampton Farms.

They talk about their special relationship with major league baseball:

Baseball & Peanuts, A classic American combination. Now you can use the power of Major League Baseball and Hampton Farms Peanuts.

There is nothing like watching your favorite team while snacking on freshly roasted peanuts. These items drive impulse purchases at store level while providing consumers with a great value.

Yes, I love to watch my favorite team snacking on freshly roasted peanuts. Hmm, I wonder if that grammatical gaffe was intentional?

    Let me just add that I love peanuts. My people come from peanut farming country in southern Virginia… specifically, Sedley, VA home of HUBS peanuts (http://www.hubspeanuts.com) located in South Hampton County. Best peanuts in the world!

    Since Dodger brand and Angels brand are licensed by M.L.B., and since Hampton Farms must pay for the licensing fee, I wonder does the added cost get passed along to the consumer, the way it is if you buy, say, shoes or a team hat that has been similarly licensed? That would make M.L.B. licensed peanuts more costly, and possibly move them out of the competitive pricing range of other, non-licensed peanuts.
