About Juanita's Candy Kitchen
Juanita started cooking brittles in 1974. She "cooked up" batches of peanut brittle in a small building located behind her home and then peddled her candies from her car around the state.
She would pass out samples allowing customers to get a taste of her wonderful, homemade brittle. This was all it took to get the business growing.
Soon she added pecan and cashew brittle to her product line and was cooking in a new, larger building. As the saying goes, "the rest is history."
Juanita passed away in 2001, but her famous nut brittle lives on as the business continues on with her goal of "keeping customers happy by making the best brittles."
