Our Story

As children, Mom had us make our teachers’ Christmas gifts each year. I was stuck making beaded ornaments while our younger brother made pecans with Mom’s recipe. His teachers raved about his gift—mine quickly forgot them.

Decades later I needed a treat to make for my colleagues for the holidays. I remembered my Mom’s and brother’s pecan recipe and wondered, “Would anyone like them?” Mert’s Nuts was born literally overnight. Late one night I was roasting and by noon the next day I had received my first official order. Everyone raved about them and wanted more, more, more—before I was ready to live a fully nutty life.

I started Mert’s Nuts as my Mom watched from her hospice bed. She was thrilled and tickled. I’m honored to donate a portion of each Mert’s Nuts sale to benefit the The Cutaneous Lymphoma Foundation-GSH Skin Care Institute in honor of our fabulous mother, Gaby (Gabrielle Schwarz Haab).
