Why Seasoned Pecans are Better Than Coated Ones

Why are Wutta Nut! Pecans seasoned and not coated? It’s simple: only seasoned pecans allow the full pecan flavor to shine through.

Why is this important? Because when the pecans are seasoned, you can taste the full pecan flavor along with the spices, herbs and other flavors.

You’ve probably eaten coated pecans. They’re typically bathed with egg white or a sugar syrup, and seasoned with sweet flavors like caramel, cinnamon or chocolate. The result is a candy crunch that completely obscures the nut taste. This allows companies to get away with using lower quality and poor-tasting nuts. Actually, if you can’t taste the pecans, then you might as well be eating crispy rice.

We think you deserve better. You deserve top-quality pecans that are healthful and nutritious. That’s why we take the time to slow roast our pecans, and why we season each small batch by hand.

You deserve to taste the full pecan flavor. That’s why we start with a pecan varietal that consistently takes first place in pecan taste tests for best all-round flavor, texture, and crunch.

You also deserve a snack made only with all-natural ingredients like what you’d use in your own kitchen. That’s why we use no artificial ingredients or preservatives.

We use only as much added sugar or salt as we need to achieve the right taste. Our We’re Kickin’ It has no added sugar, for instance. By omitting the sugar, the barbecue is a little tangier. 

Where to Find Seasoned Pecans

So, the next time you’re at the store looking at your pecan snack options, consider whether the pecans are lightly seasoned so you can taste the pecans, or are heavily coated like candy.

Wutta Nut! Pecans are at your local store near the gourmet cheese counter, or in the prepared foods or deli section. If your store doesn’t carry them, drop us a note with your retailer recommendation. We’ll send you our secret coupon code that you can redeem by visiting our online store.
