GW Carver Brittle - Retro Candy in Harpers Ferry, WV - True Treats Historic Candy

George Washington Carver Peanut Brittle


This unique brittle resembles the sugar coated peanuts sold by street vendors in New York and other large cities – sweet and savory with a melt-in-your-mouth texture. Comes from George Washington Carver’s original recipe. A favorite of the True Treats staff. 4 oz in a heat-sealed bag with the history on the label.

A Bit of History

This peanut brittle is from a recipe of George Washington Carver. The scientist, inventor and philanthropist found 300 uses for peanuts, among other remarkable discoveries. Amazingly, as an enslaved baby, he was traded for a race horse. His spirit, like his work, lives among us today.
