Peanut Brittle, Rich 1800s Taste


Out of stock

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.
