Our Story

Delight, joy, family and happiness are at the cornerstone of Try Deas because it's been a part of our story from the beginning.

I come from a pretty big family. And by big, I mean BIG. My father is the youngest of 11 children, and I'm the third youngest grandchild out of 40! With numbers like that it was pretty difficult for my grandparents to get to everyone how they wanted. But they found a way to make each and every one of us feel special in our own way.

Living in rural South Carolina, after a life of sharecropping and farming, my grandparents didn't have much. But what they did have they shared with my dad, mom, brother, and me freely, and with love.

Every so often they would fill a big cardboard box full of pecans and ship them 275 miles away to my family, with a little note saying "We love you." We always looked forward to this random act of care and kindness that helped create memories worth repeating -- spending hours cracking nuts and cracking jokes with one another, bonding and deepening our ties as a family.

In that same spirit, Try Deas and Other Treats was born to share that same love and joy with the world, inviting any and everyone to be a part of our fun-loving, close-knit family. (Plus, how could you have a name like Deas, love nuts, and not have fun with them both!)

So welcome to the family. I'm glad you're here. Enjoy!
