Try My Nuts from the Start

Try My Nuts from the Start

Why Try My Nuts? It’s the Outer Banks experience.

Way back in 1999, we started our first store in Corolla, NC. That’s where the Corolla wild horses roam. If you’ve never seen them, it’s difficult for someone else to describe the experience. You just have to be there, feeling the wind and the ocean and the beach and watching wild horses run free. It’s a good feeling.

Being a fun-loving family, we wanted to extend that feeling of freedom we felt at the OBX. So, we took a chance and started our first beach store with only 600 square feet of retail space and no idea which way the wind would blow.

Well, that summer we were a hit. And then it didn’t stop but kept on going year-round. We quickly outgrew that first store, and now, 19 years later, we’re still sharing Outer Banks munch satisfaction and sandy grit wit with our many happy customers.

With seven retail locations – four on the Outer Banks, NC and three in Ashland, VA, Pigeon Forge, TN, and Palm Desert, CA — plus an online store at, our vacation food and clothing products are now available all across the country. We just keep growing and sharing that beach freedom feel with every delicious snack and nutty gift we offer.

I think people need the OBX experience. The taste experience and friendly atmosphere we offer is just the right change of pace for a stressed-out society. As a family-owned and operated business, we’re happy being together and we want to share that happiness. In fact, our goal is to make our customers 100% happy 100% of the time. If you’re not 100% satisfied, please let us know and we will do whatever it takes to make it right! We’re all about life-long customer relationships.

Many of our customers visit year after year and to us, it’s like family coming for a visit. We like to feed them with our new product samples, joke around, have fun and make them feel at home. We’ve watched many of their children grow into adults and now they too bring their children into our stores every year for a visit. We look forward to seeing them all every year.
