Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What makes Fortune Favors so darn tasty?

A: In the heart of the North American woods, where ancient secrets whisper through the leaves, resides the native pecan. Laden with flavor and a bounty of life's essences, it holds the promise of vitality within its very core.

In the cauldron of Eric and his kin, alongside a handful of gifted artisans, these pecans are conjured with a touch of sugar, a sprinkle of salt, and behold, the formula unfolds: Sweet + Rich + Salt = a symphony of wonder.

For Eric, this artistry is a culmination of four decades, with a singular mission to bestow joy through culinary magic. Fortune Favors, a 'candied pecan,' a caramelized touch of sugar, just enough to unveil the depths of nature's treasure trove.

Only 5g of added sweetness grace each serving, a testament to a world where even Honey Nut Cheerios find themselves surpassed in subtle sweetness.

Q: Why pecans?

A: Ah, dear seeker, let me spin for you the tale of Fortune Favors, a serendipitous dance of cosmic threads. In the enchanted chronicles, you may discover the origin of this joyful concoction, a tale spun with threads of whimsy and serendipity.

Pecans, they are the chosen vessels for our caramel alchemy, nature's canvas, if you will. They toast under the watchful eye of fate, revealing a unique buttery essence, and in their intricate embrace, salt and sugar find their hidden sanctuaries, birthing a symphony of flavors.

But there is more, for pecans hold a deeper secret. They are the sole nut to call North America home. In the arcane circles of nut lore, this fact is revered, a testament to the wonder of nature's design.

Q: Do you sell other kinds of nuts?

A: In the house of Fortune Favors, pecans reign supreme, an exclusive sovereign of our craft. The universe, in its boundless wisdom, has guided us down this singular path.

 Q: Can I buy a Fortune Favors gift card?

A: Indeed, Fortune Favors Gift Cards await their destined recipient on our wondrous website.

Q: Does Fortune Favors collect sales tax in all states?

A: No! As of now, our tax web extends its threads only to the realms of Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, and New York, where our presence is known.

Fortune Favors, in the eyes of the states, is often classified as a sweet 'candy,' and thus, where the stars align, sales tax may come to pass. Yet, in distant realms, it is the duty of the discerning consumer to heed the call of their own state's tax laws, a responsibility borne by those who venture into these enchanted lands.

Q: How should I dispose of an empty Fortune Favors can? What about the 2lb bulk bag?

A: Our cans, vessels of wonders adorned with labels spun from enchanted threads, may bear the gift of recyclability but alas, not all lands may allow it..

Therefore, consult with your local keepers of recycling lore to ensure the proper passage of our vessels.

To recycle our cans, should your kingdom allow it, clean its inner sanctum with care, wipe it with a cloth and cast aside the silica packet. Then, return the plastic lid to the vessel and recycle.

Our 2-lb bags are crafted with the essence of post-consumer recycled content. Yet, heed this mystic counsel: these bags, though born of magic, are not destined for the grand cycle of recycling. Instead, let them find solace in the realm of the earthly trash.

Q: Why did you change your name?

A: As the seasons change, so does one’s visage of themselves. So was the case with our name. It was time for new beginnings.

Instead, we quest tirelessly to unearth lower-cost spells that may carry your treasures with a lighter step.
