Mr. B eyed a customer standing at the window of his shiny, tiny cart parked between the road and the tracks in Clanton, Ala., a town at the center of the Heart of Dixie.
"Give him a big bag," he said to Lil' B, "to take up north."
Lil' B dipped into a hot pot of "green" peanuts boiled for a soft, salty taste known across the South.
Then Lil' B passed a tightly packed Ziploc bag of the peanuts out the window, and Mr. B waved off a 5-dollar bill.
"Nah," he said, "you just take those back home and enjoy 'em."
