  • “I purchased your nuts…… the San Antonio Black Expo and I was truly impressed.  These are the best tasting nuts I have ever had.  I plan to purchase more of your gourmet nuts as gifts and have them mailed to family out-of-state.  Thanks again!!!” Tracy S.

  • “Margaret and staff were amazing again this Holiday Season 2010!  They went out of their way to make sure all my clients received their delicious nuts on time even though all the addresses I provided were not correct.  Thank you, Margaret and staff for all your hard work!  You guys are terrific!” Sheri, Darilek Butler & Associates, PLLC

  • “…..The nuts were off the chain wonderful. They were GREAT! Everyone enjoyed them. Some of my guests were looking for more later…….Thank you again very much for everything” Wanda B.

  • I was first so impressed by the quality of Margaret’s nuts I ordered them for friends and family. Then when I needed a special gift for a team of corporate clients – one that reflected Texas products and high standards – I turned to her again with rave reviews. So now, when I’m looking for a way to show clients and volunteers how much I appreciate them, I turn to Margaret first.  Aissatou, Media Write

  • Margaret provides a convenient and elegant way for busy business owners to recognize and thank their employees, colleagues, and clients. Her mouth-watering gourmet nuts are a gift that one remembers and wants to receive more of. One can taste the care and attention to detail that has gone into the preparation of her products. Her baskets are very elegantly packaged and they are eye-catching. Margaret’s gift baskets are also excellent for friends and family. I have given her gourmet nuts to my family members as gifts and they keep asking for more!!! Carol, Trostle & Associates

  • If you want quality and integrity, Al’s Nuts is the place to provide wonderful customer service and great gifts to all those who are special to you. Margaret puts tender, loving care into each order and goes the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. Your happiness and your client’s happiness is tops to this business and there are not two gifts alike…price, exceptional! Count on this business to treat each customer like they are their only customer!! Special care for sure.  Virginia, Moody & Associates

  • Margaret does everything you expect – deliver quality product when she says she will. But it’s her creative approach to business, to life, her smile when she’s going a million miles a minute, that makes her such fun to do business with. Cheryl, Pro Money Inc

  • Margaret recommended promotional packages, attached my business cards and shipped them to a conference. All I had to do was show up! The gourmet nuts were a big hit! How else could I have given out 200 business cards that I know were read? I highly recommend AL’S GOURMET NUTS for the quality of their products and the outstanding service they provide. Carol T., Trostle & Associates
