We had that squirrel dream again last night.
We were jumping from tree to tree, collecting amber-colored leaves for our nest to protect us from the autumn chill in the air, the aroma of wood-burning fireplaces swirling around our tiny home in the sky. When we awoke, our mouth was filled with nuts.
And for once, they were pecans.
This year we’ve found our new favorite purveyor of pecan perfection, Bandera Foods. Based in Texas (where they know a thing or two hundred about the crunchy ribbed nut), they’ve got a whole lineup of products that make for great snacking and gift-giving all season long.
It all started with their Killer Pecans that bring together the addictive combination of sweet, spicy and crunchy, and Smokin’ Pecans that feature a sweet-and-spicy profile with a barbecue kick. Both are made with the highest quality mammoth pecan halves grown in Texas.
Now they’ve added Chocolate Covered Killer Pecans to the lineup, which also includes Killer Pecan Shortbread Cookies and a spice rub that’ll make for one remarkable Thanksgiving turkey.
But we don’t want to think about that yet. Our turkey dreams never end well.
Though, admittedly, getting stuffed is pretty fun.
