As a caterer, Eleanor Harren was constantly receiving requests for her creamy pralines for everything from barbeques to weddings. She knew her Aunt Aggie De's praline recipe was a winner. In 1987, at age 55, Eleanor began Aunt Aggie De's Pralines, with small batches being made by Eleanor herself in her kitchen. Word quickly got out about the delectable pecan candy and she now occupies two buildings in Sinton, Texas. In one, pralines and other pecan candies are still being made in batches and with the same care and quality of ingredients she used when she started the company.
The main storefront at 311 W. Sinton boasts a giant squirrel named Agnes and houses the primary retail store. Aunt Aggie De's has remained committed to USA grown and processed ingredients, with the only exception being the Madagascar vanilla beans (which are processed in the USA) and the Belgian chocolate used in chocolate confections. Aunt Aggie De's sells over 2 million pralines each year and guarantees them to be 100% delicious.
