Shop Local: Nifty Nut House

Nifty Nut House

When it comes to gift giving, whether its for yourself or others, I can’t think of a better or more popular place than the Nifty Nut House. If you’ve been living under a rock, I’m going to let you in on the secret. It’s the biggest store in town for candies, nuts, and treats. Located at 537 St. St. Francis in a 1,5000 square-foot space, it’s the premiere snack shop in the 316.


Nifty Nut House is a family-owned business that’s been around since 1937.

Once December hits, the store will get busier and busier as Christmas approaches. So, you’ll want to go sooner than later or else you’ll be facing long lines or sold-out product.

There’s literally something there for everyone. So much stuff, it would probably take you a lifetime to sample everything they have on hand.

On our last visit, we picked up some different flavored Moon Pies (a childhood favorite), some sour candies, hot Cajun corn sticks, seasoned hot spicy blanched peanuts, milk chocolate double-dipped peanuts, dark chocolate double-dipped peanuts, and other assorted candies. Needless to say, we will be snacking good tonight!

Here’s a look inside the store:

And if you’re a big fan of merch, they have a wall of that as well.

You cannot go wrong with gifts from the Nifty Nut House. I’ve never come across anybody that’s been disappointed with the store.

Nifty Nut House is located at 537 St. Francis. For more information, check them out on Facebook or visit their website. You can also reach them at 316-265-0571.
