So let's get started....



History~

Nuts.com has been a family owned and operated business since 1929
It is an American Dream Come True...
The company was started by "Poppy" Sol during the depression
with only a dream and a bank loan.
With hard work and perseverance,
Poppy Sol launched the Newark Nut Company
He began selling premium bulk nuts and
dried fruit at the popular Mulberry Street open-air market.
Poppy Sol believed in choosing only the highest quality
super colossal nuts from the worlds best growers.
He then would roast the nuts to perfection and
86 years later..
the third generation of family members are
keeping up the Nuts.com company standards of excellence

Nuts.Online was launched in 1999
to bring over 2000 items right to your front door.
Nuts.Online has since changed it's name to Nuts.com

At Home Facts:

I have always loved almonds.
I started eating almonds on a daily basis about
five years ago when I needed to lower my cholesterol and
regulate my blood sugar levels

My grand-children, two and four years old
will only drink almond milk.
They have been drinking almond milk since
they were around a year old.

I started using almond butter and

I now use them both in many of my baking recipes and
I'm starting to incorporate almond flour into
more of my baking recipes also.
