Billie's Pecans' slogan speaks to me. I've been constantly craving the chocolaty, nutty goodness of Stacy Crenshaw's handmade wonders ever since the sampler box miraculously arrived on my doorstep on National Chocolate-Covered Nut Day. Yes, the holiday exists -- as if I coincidentally needed an excuse to treat myself.
Since tin seems to be the history "norm" in pecan packaging, I really enjoyed the crisp, white paper box that carries an assortment of milk, dark, chocolate amaretto, and praline covered pecans. I was most amused by the decadent chocolate amaretto flavor, which offers a small punch of almond-flavor Italian liqueur to finish. Unbelievable. Smaller bags were delivered with Billie's signature cinnamon-spiced pecans. I'm saving these to top a cheesecake or baked treat of some sort...
Every single homegrown pecan is baked, sugared, and shipped worldwide out of a Main Street shop in Crenshaw, Mississippi. The Southern authenticity, while expected, turns a treat into a treasure. I'm impressed with the family's ability to balance growth in product and distribution without jeopardizing the core values of quality and family. It's rare and, to me, truly admirable.
So, I want you to try them and begin craving them, too. How does that sound?
