Billie's Pecans

Cinnamon Spiced Pecans from Billie's Pecans

Billie's Pecans




I just love the opportunity to share a Mississippi company with y'all, so when Billie's Pecans contacted me to see if I'd like to try a sample, I was thrilled! Headquartered in Crenshaw Mississippi, the story of how Billie's came into existence, is one that any working mom can appreciate.

Raising her family of boys on a farm lined with pecan trees, Billie would retrieve the excess pecans that had fallen to the ground, using them to make the first batch of what would become her now famous cinnamon spiced pecans, like these pictured, right in her own family kitchen. Y'all, let me tell you, these are perfect - the best cinnamon spiced pecans I've ever tasted. Let's just say that they didn't last long.


With the encouragement of her son, she began selling her spiced pecans around town and built a business strictly from word of mouth. Founded in 1981, today the business is housed in a 100 year old building where Billie's family continues her legacy, shipping about 8,000 pounds of pecans treats every year.

Pecan Cheese Crispies. Awesomely addictive!
Although I only tried the cinnamon spiced pecans and cheese crispies, Billie's offers a wide assortment of other pecan based products, including toasted pecans, pecan halves and pieces, and other goodies like pecan brittle and toffee, cakes, and an assortment of chocolate covered pecans, including milk, white and dark chocolate, sugar free and chocolate infused with Grand Marnier and Amaretto, many of which are also available in sampler boxes.


Found in some specialty stores, you may also order Billie's Pecans online at their website http://billiespecans.com, or by phone at 800-624-7404. While Billie's ships year-round, the deadline to order to receive in time for Christmas 2014 is December 18th and Billie's has extended a limited time offer to Deep South Dish readers for a discounted purchase.

The first 35 readers who spend $50 or more at BilliesPecans.com before December 31, 2014, will receive $10 off their order (before taxes and shipping). Use promo code DSD2014 when you check out.
