About Us

In 1929, on the brink of the Depression, our father and grandfather “Poppy” Sol took a bold step. 22 years old, he had already worked fulltime for 10 years to support his family. Yet he was ambitious, and wanted to live the American Dream and make the lives of everyone around him better. So, donning his best of suits and an assured smile on his face, Sol walked away from the bank with a loan to start his own business, the Newark Nut Company. The rest is history. Let us tell you all about it:

Our Nutty Family

As the second and third generation of this business, we live and breathe what we do here at Nuts.com. This business has survived the Great Depression, Poppy Sol going off to fight in World War II, our warehouse being firebombed in the Newark riots in 1967, and relocations by the city of Newark in both 1984 and 2005. Working side-by-side with family isn't always the easiest of things, but at the end of the day we are grateful to be together. Click a nut cartoon, or a guy in the photograph, for each of our stories.
