Southern Snacks

Snacks garner a lot of love and for good reason: They help us make friends in new situations and pick us up when we’re low. We can take these portable treats anywhere: to the office, the soccer field, in the car. And few food groups attract the same following and legacy as Southern snacks.

In the South, some of us grew up eating our grandmother’s legendary benne wafers and candied pecans. Others view the can of Virginia peanuts in their pantry as a staple item. We know that no hors d’oeuvres course is complete without pimento cheese, and few Southern holidays kick off until the cheese straws appear.  

The Local Palate Marketplace offers foodies and home cooks a vast assortment of specialty ingredients, craft barbecue sauces, small-batch roasted coffees, and regional delicacies sourced from artisan makers throughout the South. The shop’s robust selection of Southern snacks provides flavors of home-style treats whenever the hunger hits, from the 11 am stomach grumbles to the pre-dinner cocktail hour.

Nibbling Our Way through Southern Snacks

The snacks you find on the Local Palate Marketplace go beyond the typical grocery store and gas station snack aisles. These Southern snacks get made by small-business restaurateurs and gourmands who take their craft seriously and make each product with care. The majority also use local ingredients, so you really do taste the South in every bite. For sweet treats to round out your savory snacking, check out the selection of quality chocolates, confections, and desserts on Marketplace. If you’re still hungry for more, the Pantry items help home cooks get a Southern dinner on the table in no time at all.
