February is National Snack Month

Every month of the year has ethnic, cultural, religious and yes, food holidays. Every month also has special days to celebrate the things we love. February celebrates many of the things we love to eat from Virginia! February is National Snack Month

February 25 National Chocolate-Covered Peanuts Day
February 25 National Clam Chowder Day
February 26 National Pistachio Day

We all love to snack. We have so many different items, it’s hard to decide. May we suggest: Virginia peanuts (extra large salted and unsalted , chocolate covered, sweet and seasoned), specialty nuts like pistachios, almonds, and cashews, Peanut Straws and Peanut Butter.

For National Chocolate Covered Peanut Day we suggest some of our many different products with chocolate peanuts. We have baskets, gifts tins, and gift boxes as well as tins of chocolate-covererd peanuts.

For National Clam Chowder Day we suggest seafood soups from Chincoteague Seafood Soups and Blue Crab Bay. We offer Chincoteague New England Clam Chowder and Manhattan Clam Chowder and Blue Crab Bay Eastern Shore Clam Chowder and New England Clam Chowder. These seafood soupsare sold in sets of 3 of the same can or samplers as well as in gift boxes and gift baskets.

For National Pistachio Day we suggest our extra large and meaty pistachios and our new Smoked Hickory and Garlic and Onion Flavor pistachios or our VERY popular Pistachio Basket.
