Nuts are powerful social tools—they can bring together party guests, segregate grade-school cafeterias, and glue a town gossip's mouth shut if whipped into a butter. Gain nutty power with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of nuts and snacks at Krema Nut Company.
The presses and roasters at Krema Nut Company have churned out preservative-free snacks, nuts, and protein-rich butters since the company's founding in 1898. Overseen by the company's master roaster, workers whip together batches of peanut butter ($4.29 for 16 oz.) according to strict standards that omit salt, sugar, and real butter flung from jealous cows. Shelves overflow with freshly filled jars of nuts, such as giant cashews ($15.99 for 16 oz.), smoked almonds ($8.29 for 16 oz.), and an army of blanched, honey-roasted, and butter-toffee peanuts ($3.89–$3.99). Eaters can silence the hungry cries of sweet teeth by gorging on chocolate candies, filled with nuts, pretzels, and raisins ($3.99–$9.99) or drown out a noisy moviegoer by crunching down on peanut brittle ($4.99 for 9 oz.).
Krema Nut Company also curbs cravings within a peanut-inspired café that slings a menu of sandwiches and sweets. For the Classic Old Timer ($5), sandwich savants layer house-made crunchy peanut butter, fresh strawberries, and strawberry preserves onto two slices of Great Harvest bread. Locally sourced dairy products lend their creaminess to milkshakes ($3.75) and sundaes ($3+), which serve as perfect rewards after stressful workweeks or cavity-free dentist appointments.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Krema Nut Company a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
Krema Nut Company
Since 1898, Krema Nut Company's presses and roasters have churned out a salty and sweet selection of preservative-free nuts, nut butters, and snacks, which have garnered attention from the Food Network's Unwrapped and Food Finds. The shop’s shelves support more traditional snacks, including bags of caramel corn, dried fruits, and roasted pecan halves, and more experimental morsels, such as wasabi roasted green peas and cashews tumbled in sea salt and black pepper. Alongside classic candies and its line of gourmet chocolates, the staff whips up a menu of sandwiches slathered in homemade nut butters and decadent peanut-butter ice-cream sundaes topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, freshly sliced fruit, and liquid happiness.
