An adorable red building that houses A & Z Nut Wagon in Boyle Heights, feels like a stroll down memory lane.  Open the doors to find a shop that looks like it hasn’t changed in 80 years and thats just the way we like it.

Other snack foods such as the addicting spicy sesame sticks, peanut brittle, jelly beans, Boston beans, chocolate raisins and cashew or coconut brittle can be found.

Prices are a deal for nuts that set us back over $15.00 a pound at Trader Joes and we appreciate the savings wherever we can find them.

The dried fruit here also saves us money and comes in packages of convenient sizes so we can pick and choose whatever amount is best for us.

We can attest to the freshness, great flavor and savings found on goods sold at A & Z Nut Wagon and recommend the adventure of stepping back into the 1930’s for a taste of salty crunch and a trip down memory lane.
