BEER NUTS started in 1937 when Arlo Shirk and his father Edward, purchased a confectionery store in Illinois. The recipe for their special glazed peanut was included in the sale. Fondly known as "Redskins" at that time. In the 50's the distribution really started in bars and taverns in the local communities. Thus the BEER NUTS Peanuts gained its name. Today BEER NUTS is still family owned.
Did you know that BEER NUTS has an entire line of amazing nut snack items? Of course the original peanuts are very well loved, try something new. They have Kettle cooked peanuts, Spicy & Hot peanuts, cashews, almonds, pecans, macadamias, even a few mixes for taste combinations. Now you can have that unmistakable taste in your favorite nut. BEER NUTS has quite the fan following. The brand has been a staple in many a home bar. Besides the tasty crunchy nut snacks you can find BEER NUTS gear. Clothing, collectibles, barware and even goodies for the kids all with the famous BEER NUTS Logo. Proudly wear and display your affection for one of the most recognized and loved brands in America.
Courtesy of the fun folks at BEER NUTS, I was sent a nice variety of the snacks. I actually did not know all these flavors were available so this was a real treat for my family. The first one. pretty much emptied in a matter of minutes, (okay not that fast but they did go quick) was the Cashews. The sweet taste of the BEER NUTS coating with the richness of the cashew, mmmmm these were so delicious. Hubby had some with a beer, he was very happy! The almonds were very delightful. The crunch was the best part of the almonds. We also sampled a couple of the amazing mixes. The Bar Mix is the perfect party mix of nuts, pretzels, roasted corn, sesame stix and more. The flavor is very addicting. The saltiness with the crunch...you can't stop eating this good stuff. The Party Mix adds to the flavor of Original Peanuts by adding chocolate gems and yogurt covered raisins. I really loved the Party Mix. The sweet and salty flavor of the Party Mix is a real treat. The raisins are delectable and chewy, then you get a burst of chocolate with the salty crunch of the peanuts...more please! Delicious!
