The Nut Man
About this event :
Still Nutty After All These Years!
In October 1983, motivated largely by the oil recession, Calgarians Jim Miller and Allan Jonas took a 16th century idea from England and decided to put a fresh zest into peddling wares in the market place.
“While in England we discovered that the peddlers added a charming personality as well as conveniently bringing the retail item to the customer.”
Throughout Europe, the candy and snack industry was vibrant and rich with color, smells and highly competitive. The Fins were proud of their Fazer Mints, the French had their chocolate snacks, and of course no one knew sweets like the Brits. They wanted to bring this flair of taste, smell, color, and the “Joie de Vive” to everyone in Alberta and beyond.
Currently they offer over 70 varieties of prepackaged nuts, candies, chocolate, and mixes both domestic and imported from all over the world.
