Young Plantations: A Product Review

Last week, I was lucky enough to get the chance to sample 2 great pecan flavors from Young Plantations.

Young Plantations is a family-owned business based in Florence, SC.  They ship to all fifty states and to over 50 countries each year.  They also have 5 retail shops in South Carolina (2 permanent and 3 seasonal). 

I first became familiar with Young Plantations several years ago.  At the time, I worked for a flower shop that had a large selection of gourmet products to be added to fruit and gift baskets.   Pecans from Young Plantations was one of the many items that were offered to our customers.  Specifically, the Double Dipped Chocolate Pecans.  Do I really need to say more?  Double. Dipped. Chocolate.  Mmmmmm! 

In thinking of what products I would like to share with my readers, I knew right away that I wanted to contact Young Plantations and set up a product review!

Shortly after being in contact with them, I received a box containing 2 bags of flavored pecans.  Praline Pecans and Honey Crisp Pecans.  We were so eager to try them, I didn't get a picture before we dug into the bags! 

Both flavors were amazing!  The freshness and quality of the pecans was wonderful.  One thing I hate about bagged snacks is that often in shipping they get crushed and broken.  I was so happy to see that there weren't any broken bits at the bottom of the bags!  The packaging was perfect! 

Something else I love about the pecans, is that the ingredients are all-natural.

Here is what makes up the Praline Pecans:
  • Pecans (of course)
  • butter
  • brown sugar
  • maple syrup
  • touch of salt
See?  Just 5 ingredients!!!  Amazing, right?  These days it's really difficult to find tasty snacks that don't contain a bunch of preservatives and chemicals or HFCS. 

It gets even better with the Honey Crisp Pecans:  slow-roasted pecans, sweetened with pure drizzled honey.  Yep! Two ingredients!  How great is that? 

While both flavors were a hit at our house, the Honey Crisp Pecans were unanimously voted the favorite of the two!  Every pecan reminded me of a bite of pecan pie. They are described on the website as being   "Incredibly delicious and sinfully divine!"  I think that is a truly accurate description!   (I'm really making myself hungry right now!)

Below, you can find a description of some of the gift packages and flavor options that can be found at Young Plantations.  Click on the links if you would like more information.
