Peanut Brittle, Rich 1800s Taste
This peanut brittle is buttery, rich, and delicious because it’s made from an early 1900s recipe by hand, in small batches. Not your average brittle! 8 oz in a heat-sealed bag with the history on the label.
A Bit of History
The original brittle was brought to the US by Irish immigrants escaping the Potato Famine. The peanut arrived on slave ships: for decades enslaved people were the virtually the only ones to eat it. In 1847, the peanut appeared in a brittle—the first candy to contain the peanut.
