Grandma K's Story
For over three decades, Grandma whipped up thousands of discs of peanut brittle that found its way throughout Waterloo & Cedar Falls, and sometimes even across the country. "My husband eats it faster than I can buy it!", quipped a family friend back in the 70s.
When Grandma asked a customer 20 years ago who bought six bundles, "Are these going to be Christmas gifts?" The man replied, "No, I keep these in my cool, dark closet and it lasts me until March!"
Grandma shares with me that the most common feedback she'd receive from folks over the years: "I've never had peanut brittle like this before that didn't stick to my teeth!"
Age catches up. For the past ten years or so, Grandma requires the help of others to make her popular brittle, so she has scaled back to only a couple batches a year. This means that primarily only houseguests and old, close friends have had the pleasure to crunch into that sweet, airy peanut brittle for quite some time.
Everyone close to her knows it is a defining part of her life story and connects her to her more youthful days, something increasingly welcome at her 94 years.
For those of you whom have been following us since the beginning of "Iowa love", you know that Grandma plays an instrumental role (we actually started the company in her house!) and she has always been our #1 cheerleader.
So, because we have built an amazing community of "Iowa love"-ers who really yearn to support local and value family, it seems appropriate to offer Grandma's Peanut Brittle to you for the holiday shopping season!
This could be quite an undertaking for us at "Iowa love", so we are asking everyone to PRE-ORDER Grandma K's peanut brittle so we can work with our local partner, who owns a commercial kitchen, to produce precisely the right amount of Grandma K's secret recipe to satisfy all orders in a timely manner.
