Juanita’s Candy Kitchen has been providing Arkansas with great candy since 1974, when Juanita first “cooked up” her batches of peanut brittle in a small building located behind her home. She would then hit the road and sell her candies from her car around the state.
She would pass out samples allowing customers to get a taste of her wonderful, homemade brittle. This was all it took to get the business growing.
Soon she added pecan and cashew brittle to her product line and was cooking in a new, larger building. As the saying goes, “the rest is history.”
Juanita passed away in 2001, but her sons are continuing the business with her goal of “keeping customers happy by making the best brittles.”
