The Pizootz Story
We have dedicated ourselves to the goal of making a nut for all humankind: the Pizootz peanut. Our peanuts are packed with flavor but without the problems that other flavored peanuts cause. Our process does not use powders or oils that create a sticky mess. How can we achieve this? How could we make a nut which overloads the senses but doesn't leave any debris behind? By infusing them with flavor at our lab in Portsmouth, Virginia.
However, some of our ideas go beyond the simple of goal of a peanut to unite all people. The Inferno Peanut isn't for everyone, but we know that there are people across America who crave a hotter, cleaner peanut.
I'm Bo Perry, and together with Sherry Pennington, we created Pizootz Peanuts. Pizootz combines the technology we invented - the infused peanut - with innovative storytelling. We didn't just invent a new type of snack; we also created the character of Alfred P. Pizootz, a globe-trotting inventor who eventually settled down on his passion: crafting the perfect peanut, capturing our drive for invention.
Sherry and I created Pizootz Peanuts as an alternative to preservative-packed and messy flavored peanuts. We have a passion for inventing a new type of snack which is environmentally sustainable as well as delicious.
We've already created many great flavors, including Baja Taco, New York Dill Pickle, Habanero, Jalapeno, Blazing Buffalo, Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Bay Spice and Sea Salt.
Pizootz Peanuts are made by a process which uses all-natural, GMO-free ingredients. The Inferno will include:
- All natural peanuts grown in Virginia
- Kosher salt
- Jalapeño, Habanero, Carolina Reaper, and Ghost Peppers
This is a group of simple ingredients that pack a powerful punch without relying on artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives to maintain the powder that coats the peanuts sold by most large companies. A Pizootz peanut looks visibly like a normal peanut with little to no residue, because our pressure and steam-based process infuses the flavor within the peanut itself.
We don't only look out for the environment with our natural process, but we are also concerned with taking care of our community. For that reason, we donate a portion of all peanuts sold to the Multiple Sclerosis Society to help rid the world of MS.
Why We Need Your Support
Pizootz has been able to get into some grocery stores, but they are cautious about what flavors they're willing to sell. Unfortunately they don't feel the same passion that Sherry and I feel about inventing interesting, new peanut varieties. Supporting this project will make the Inferno possible and allow Pizootz to continue to push the boundaries of the peanut world.
Reaching the first goal will help us get over the major hurdle of packaging, while the second will help us fund this first batch of peanuts. Reaching the third stepping stone will make the Inferno a long-term project, putting us in a better position to produce more unique flavors in the future.
Thank you for your support!!
