Our Story

It all started with my grandparents, Hazel & Jim, in the 1920's. They brought all the amazing dried fruits and nuts grown on local farms near their home in Gilroy, California to the whole nation. My grandfather did all the packing for orders as they came in. Then he loaded them up and sent them by rail to their customer destinations all across the U.S. 

In addition to the dried fruits and nuts, my grandmother made a confection she called Jim Dandy’s Health Candy. It was a ball of chopped dried fruits and nuts. This was the inspiration for Spiced Pear Chocolate Salami. 

To honor their legacy, we started Hazel Armstrong's. Our confections feature only premium, California-made ingredients. 

We love what we do and take pride in our products. It gives us great joy to include you in our celebration of California's amazing abundance and delicious diversity of ingredients. If you're not happy, neither are we. All of our products come with a 100% quality guarantee. 

Warmest wishes, 

Pam Armstrong
