BUTTERY ROUGAROU POPCORN

As South Louisiana folklore has it, the Rougarou is a legendary, mythical creature roaming the swamps and bayous. Our Rougarou Blend is equally as interesting and has a mysterious, can’t-quite-put-your-finger-on-it flavor. Nothing scary about it. Rougarou is a simply delicious blend that makes the simplest of dishes really stand out. Like Crop to Pop Popcorn!...

BBQ SHRIMP

No need to fire up the grill. This classic Southern Louisiana dish has nothing to do with BBQ! This luscious dish can be cooked stovetop or in the oven. We prefer the oven because the shrimp linger a little longer in the sauce. And it’s all about the sauce! Our NOLA Pepper is the perfect...
