We Are Picard Peanuts Fort Erie – Fresh Peanuts & Much More
Thought we just did fresh peanuts? Think again. Our retro confectionery store stocks more than you imagined with Chip Nuts™, Cookie Nuts, peanut brittle, wildlife feed, gift baskets, and more.
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.

How Long Has Picard Peanuts Been In Business?
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!
