Our Products

An early 90’s visit to Georgia gave Jim Picard Sr. the inspiration to combine two of the best all-time snack foods – potato chips and peanuts. Enjoying overnight success, the rest is history!

In 1995, we began working on a formula for cookie-covered peanuts. After 17 years of research and intricate refinements, it was worth the wait!

From Valencia peanuts to salted Virginia redskins, salted Spanish peanuts to jumbo cocktail peanuts in barbeque, ranch, and salt and vinegar flavours, you’d be nuts to miss out!

From Bavarian style beernuts to golden honey nuggets, salted and non-salted cashews to zany bacon and cheddar popcorn, our assorted nuts and specialty snacks pack a punch!

Our lovingly crafted peanut brittle is available in mouth-watering almond, cashew, honey, maple, brown sugar, pecan, and coconut flavours. It’s a true taste sensation.

Whether you love your chocolate with almonds, peanuts, clusters, toffee, or raisins, we have specialty chocolate to satisfy the most discerning taste buds.

Our History In Fort Erie

Fort Erie is one of Niagara’s fastest growing communities, and a community head over heels in love with our fresh peanuts and specialty chocolate. The newest of our six Ontario locations, Picard Peanuts Fort Erie opened in April 2019 and the COVID-19 pandemic couldn’t keep us down.

Thanks to the strength of the Picard’s name, and our loyal band of customers, we continue to help locals satisfy their sweet and savoury snack cravings, 7 days a week. Not only serving Canadians, Americans also regularly flock across the nearby Peace Bridge to visit our old-fashioned peanut and confectionery store. Come stop by and say hello next time you’re in the neighbourhood.

Since 1979, Picard Peanuts Ltd. has been a staple part of the Canadian peanut growing industry. We initiated the first commercial shelling plant in the Great White North. Owned and operated by Jim Picard Jr. and his family, the company is famous for producing the original Chip Nuts™ alongside over 150 other products. These include jumbo cocktail peanuts, extra fancy Virginia redskins, Ontario-grown Valencia peanuts, and much more. In 1980, we opened our first retail store on Highway 24, north of Simcoe. This was alongside Canada’s first commercial peanut shelling plant. Business has boomed ever since! Now operating six retail stores throughout Southwestern Ontario, if you’re ever in the neighbourhood, come and stop by our Fort Erie location. You’ll be amazed at the selections!

We are not. We are a family-owned business, with six different locations in Ontario. In 2012, Picard Peanuts split into two separate businesses, Picard Foods and Picard Peanuts Ltd (which is us!). Both companies are healthy competitors, dedicated to serving the best quality confections and freshly roasted peanuts in their own unique ways.

Our Fort Erie store is open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm and 11am to 5pm on Sundays.
