As a caterer, Miss 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 where pralines are still being made with the same care and quality used when she started the company.
The main storefront, at 311 W. Sinton, boasts our iconic squirrel Agnes and houses the primary retail store. Aunt Aggie De's has remained committed to USA grown and processed ingredients, the only exception being the Madagascar vanilla beans (which are processed in the USA) and the Belgian chocolate used in chocolate confections. We sell over 2 million pralines each year and guarantee them to be 100% delicious.
We have been making confections for more than 30 years. You can find our pralines and confections at a number of fine retailers such as Whole Foods and our own Royal Blue Grocery. They’ve been served at the Sundance film festival and won special recognition at the New York summer fancy food show (one of only 27 items (out of 180,000) featured by The Washington Post. Aunt Aggie De’s pralines have twice been voted Official Best Texas Praline by the Best of America television series.
Our confections have always been, and still are 100% gluten free, additive free and preservative free. Try them for yourself or give a special treat to a loved one. Many of Aunt Aggie De’s offerings come elegantly gift wrapped.
A Letter from our Founder
We at Aunt Aggie De’s Pralines invite you, your family and friends to share in our Texas tradition of fine candy. Our delicious creamy pralines boast an old-fashioned commitment to homemade taste! As a child, my favorite treats were my Aunt Aggie De’s pralines. We still use her original praline recipe and delight in offering our Original Creamy Pralines, along with other wonderful pecan candy, prepared with the same care and quality ingredients.
Every season brings change, but one thing never changes – our pralines are guaranteed 100% delicious! If you’re ever in the neighborhood, be sure to drop by our retail store located at 311 W. Sinton in Sinton, Texas, for a cup of coffee and a sampling of our fine candies.
