Our Story

Years ago, John Spalding’s search for good peanut brittle only turned up cheap brittles with very few nuts.  So, in 1987 John dusted off Great-Grandma Spalding's old fashioned peanut brittle recipe from the 1860's and went to work. 

After countless hours of tweaking the recipe, John found that by reducing the corn syrup and sugar in his recipe, while at the same time increasing the amount of healthy nuts in his brittle, he could produce the most delicious and healthiest brittle ever made - and it would be a healthier alternative to almost all other varieties of brittle out there. Most brittles carry as much as 20 to 35 grams of sugar per serving, each of the Brittle Brothers' brittles have sugar levels less than 12 grams per serving. Less sugar and more nuts - what a perfect snack with some serious protein and a just a little bit of sugar. 

Encouraged by family and friends, the Brittle Brothers Gourmet Brittle Company was born in Nashville, TN in the fall of 2006. Take one bite and you will instantly understand why this truly is the most delicious brittle made in America!!

Today, Brittle Brothers continues to grow with having gluten free peanut, cashew, pecan and bacon gourmet brittles available in retail locations in Tennessee and across the country. Locate a retail partner location near you here.
