In 1997, a natural twist on a traditional Southern food was born. Kevin and Gayla Shaw began grinding natural white corn into grits for their own personal use. Their creation was a hit when they gave it away in Christmas gifts, so they decided to expand their market.

Just forty minutes north of us in Dawson, Georgia is a quaint candy shop that has been around since the 1970s! Mr. and Mrs. Strickland started the business in the 1970s. Mrs. Stickland supposedly began selling candy to fund her husband's fishing equipment expenses. She sold peanut brittle and the recipe was so tasty, it became extremely popular in the area.
