Brands we carry

Our soap is made with only the finest ingredients.  Though we use several different recipes, most include these basic nourishing ingredients: olive oil, palm oil (we only use palm from a sustainable source), coconut oil and castor oil.  Some of our recipes also include extra moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba oil, avocado oil and argan oil.  We do not add chemicals or harmful preservatives.  Our soaps are a great natural alternative for sensitive skin.  Most are also vegan with only a few exceptions.  Just simple good for you ingredients that will clean without stripping and drying your skin.

Backwoods Brittle Company was started by Lynn Yasenchak in June of 2017, after realizing there was something deliciously simplistic about the company's product that was inviting to customer's and kept them returning for more. Originally the company was titled L&L Peanut Brittle in May of 2017.  However, when Yasenchak began to get creative with her recipes, and started offering a variety of nut and seed brittles, she decided the business name needed to be changed to indicate the expansion of the company.  Since then, the old-fashioned treat has taken a turn toward offering some vastly different concoctions, while still keeping the original "peanut brittle" as a staple at all times.  Flavors that are sold regularly are: Peanut, Butter Pecan, Sesame Sunflower Almond, Cashew, Cayenne Cashew and Toasted Coconut Almond.  A "Flavor of the Week/Month" is also offered as seasonal, or just to see how well it is responded to. The company remains "old-school" and will continue to do so offering orders by phone, free local delivery, and packaging that is practical along with promoting. Backwoods Brittle does retail at several locations, including food stores and local businesses.  A key factor to the businesses success, along with the product's flavor and consistency, has been that there are no preservatives or additives in any of the brittles that are offered. And there never will be. Everything on the ingredient list you can pronounce, just as in years past. It's a compliment to our company when people say "I remember this when I was younger, my grandmother would make it for us", or "this takes me back to the good-ole days".  That's what Backwoods Brittle strives for... A simple product with a slight twist of flavors, for those who enjoy what we like to call our "NUT-STALGIC" treat.  Snack Naturally, Smile On, and we Thank You...
