Candied pecans have long been one of New Orleans' sweetest traditions.
Now, with delicious Southern Candied Pecans from Sucré, you can enjoy the same mouthwatering praline flavor that all the locals know and love – no matter where you're located in the U.S.
If you've ever tasted true candied pecans from the South, then you know how irresistible these treats can be:
➜ Big, chunky pecans that crumble in your mouth
➜ A sweet, sugary glaze that arouses your taste buds
➜ Unique flavor of being freshly roasted
➜ Crunchy goodness in every bite
When made with fresh ingredients and the careful attention of master confectioners, one candied pecan is never enough. That's how we do it at Sucré, and we know you'll love the results.
Just what makes these candied pecans so special?
Small and large bakeries around the country often try to replicate these sweet treats. But if you've sampled the real stuff, then you know the difference.
Nothing compares to real Southern pecans, made according to time-honored Louisiana traditions.
Pralines date back centuries in the French quarter. While they were originally made with almonds, our resourceful predecessors started using local nuts that were in abundance: Louisiana pecans.
Today's candied pecans haven't strayed too far from their origins. But make no mistake: they must be made correctly to capture the unique flavor that millions of Southerners have enjoyed for years.
At Sucré, our pecans are locally grown, right here in the South. They are roasted to perfection and then coated with our irresistible Louisiana cane sugar glaze. The result is a delectable sweet taste with a truly satisfying crunch.
Delicious – and nutritious, too?
Not only are pecans irresistible, they are good for you too! There are so many great health benefits to eating pecans – you never have to feel guilty about indulging!
Pecans are a super food. They're packed full of nutrients that few foods – let alone candies – can boast about. Vitamins, calcium, protein, fiber, potassium – this is only the short list of the many nutrients and minerals found in pecans.
But it gets even better:
➤ Pecans have no cholesterol, no sodium and no trans fats.
➤ Just one ounce of pecans – about a handful – provides 2.7 grams of dietary fiber. That’s 10 percent of your recommended Daily Value of fiber in just a few bites!
➤ Pecans are more densely packed with natural antioxidants than any other nut. Antioxidants are nutrients that help your body repair itself and fight off disease.
Curious about the sugar?
Our savory glaze is naturally sweet. You won't find any artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup. We make our glaze directly from the sugar cane grown right here in Louisiana.
How many other snacks can you name that are this nutritious and taste so delicious at the same time?
