About Us


We were founded in March of 2008 and filed to incorporate that same month.

We are a small hometown, family run business that gives a lot of attention to producing our superb line of quality gourmet food products. Everything involved with this business has been done or created by myself (Rita) or someone in my family.

Having my own business has always been a dream/vision that I am finally able to realize by investing a lot of time, hard work and late nights.

We started our product line of Gourmet Nuts with just three items. Sweet with a hint of Spice Mixed Nuts, Sweet n Spicy Medium Mixed Nuts and Hot Spicy Mixed Nuts.

We soon added a few others to our product line: Hot Spicy Peanuts, Candied Walnuts and Honey Almonds. In January of 2009 we launched our Gourmet Candy line and have been adding new and exciting items monthly. We have also streamlined our Unique Gourmet Gift Basket section. Just choose a basket and add the items you want to go in it! You can then personalize it with a card if you wish to. The perfect gift giving solution…

FYI***Research studies have found that people who often eat peanuts and nuts have much lower risks of heart disease. Also, scientists are finding that diets high in monounsaturated fats, the type found in peanuts, may also protect against heart disease. Peanuts are whole foods that contain a variety of vitamins and minerals, ample protein and beneficial unsaturated fats. Since they are a plant food, they naturally contain no cholesterol.
