When we launched this roasted pecan business, we’re kickin’ it is exactly what we did not feel. We were feeling anything but content, and we certainly weren’t just hanging out.
No, I’d say the general atmosphere was more like hair on fire with a big dose of what were we thinking?
When we started selling our roasted pecans, we didn’t feel ready. We weren’t. It would be months before the e-commerce site was up and running. We didn’t even have boxes to deliver orders in. But, a customer said she wanted savory roasted pecan halves for 100 gift baskets ready to be shipped in two weeks. Sometimes, you just have to take the leap, know you’ll figure things out, and celebrate your best effort.
Things have improved quite a bit since then. While there will always be those hair on fire moments, most of the time, yes, we’re kickin’ it. We believe that if the work you’re doing isn’t satisfying, or if the place where you’re doing the work makes you miserable, then what’s the point?
So, when we got ready to expand from our initial line up of five classic flavors like Memphis BBQ and Parmesan Garlic Butter, we named one of the new flavors, We’re Kickin’ It.
Savory Roasted Pecans
The best way to describe the intense flavor of We’re Kickin’ It is to say it’s a spicier version of our dry rub Memphis BBQ, made stronger because we omitted any added sugar. With only 1 gram of sugar, and 4 grams of carbohydrates, it’s a great choice for diabetics or others who need to watch their sugar intake. Plus, we punched it up with the flavors of cayenne, bacon, and vinegar.
We’re Kickin’ It is not for those who think their snacks should be candy sweet. Our mission at Wutta Nut! Pecans is to introduce you to the savory and healthier side of snacking. Yet, it’s not so spicy that it will make you lunge for a cold drink either.
Just What You Need for Serious Couch Time
We’re football fans around here. American college football, pro football, and of course, soccer. We all have our favorite team for the Super Bowl next month, and you know we’ll be glued to the TV, savory roasted pecan snacks in hand.
These savory pecans are a crunchy complement to more traditional Super Bowl fare like nachos, hot wings, and beer cheese soup. We pack them in the giant 6.5 oz size so you’ll have enough for all four quarters plus Rihanna’s half-time show.
If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl with a bunch of friends, check out our convenient Pantry Packs. These 21-oz jars of roasted pecan halves come in every flavor from We’re Kickin’ It right through to our not-too-sweet Maple Pumpkin Spice.
For a flavor in the middle, try Bacon Maple – best described as roasted pecan halves wrapped in organic maple sugar wallowing in bacon lard. Aunt Patricia calls Bacon Maple pig candy for grownups. Whatever flavor you choose, with the Pantry Packs, all you have to do is open the jar and pour them into a bowl.
