“In 1956, Mom and Dad Grove started making peanut brittle as a fundraiser for their church’s participation in a program to send livestock overseas to families still recovering from WW II. (The organization that coordinated that program still functions today: www.heifer.org .)” Our parents decided they could help out by making and selling Peanut Brittle to help raise funds. My grandmother, Blanche, used an old recipe that was given to her by a candy maker. People looked forward to my grandmother’s Peanut Brittle and she made it a yearly celebration for the church and community. In fact, we tease Dad that he married Mom just to get hold of the Peanut Brittle recipe. So out of that love – Grove’s Peanut Brittle business was born.
Even in today’s fast pace, our Peanut Brittle is still made the old fashioned way by our parents and Grove’s Peanut Brittle has been thriving for 60 years. And we are proud to know that it has to be good tasting to last so long. If practice makes perfect, Groves Peanut Brittle has it down to a science. But if you have not tasted our Brittle, it is time you experience it for yourself.
