Cracking Nuts hand-roast the finest nuts using all natural ingredients. Our favourite is our award-winning Cinnamon and Vanilla Cashews.
We started cracking nuts in spring 2014, after it struck us just how moreish and tasty the humble nut can be. We came across a 200 year old German recipe, played around with it a little, and came up with a range of sweet cinnamon, salty and chilli roasted nuts all with our own, unique, modern twist.
In our first summer, we secured a pitch on Marine Drive above Woolacombe Beach. From our little trailer, we would serve up freshly roasted hot nuts with coffee and ice creams to hungry surfers, whilst enjoying the sea breeze and breathtaking views.
The positive reaction convinced us to quit our jobs and 'go nuts!' full time.
We still serve from Marine Drive whenever we can but you can also find us roasting at many other food and music festivals around the south west including the Greenpeace Farmers’ Market at Glastonbury Festival.
In November 2017 we launched our dedicated new nut roasting facility in Ilfracombe. The facility is in the heart of Ilfracombe with views over the picturesque harbour.
