Established in 2013 by Doug and Judy Stooks. The Original recipe was created decades ago by Judy Stooks (aka Juanita) as a holiday snack for her kids. People kept telling her "these are so good, you should sell them." In 2013 we decided to "give it a go" and someone asked, "what are you going to call them?" "Juanita's Pepitas" was suggested and so it started!
We now have a commercial kitchen at 1722 S. Circle Drive in Colorado Springs, CO 80906 where we season, cook and package our product. We also have a small retail area in the front where we sell our product to the walk in public. Our retail hours of operation are 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
There are 5 flavors of Pepitas; Original, Hot, Honey Roasted, Lime and Pumpkin Spice. We also have unseasoned as well. There is also a breakfast bar made with pumpkin seeds, dairy free chocolate chips, gluten free oatmeal and gluten free rice flour. We also have a product for men's prostate health called PEP.
All of our products are gluten free, have no soy, no nuts and are made with non-GMO ingredients. There are none of the top eight allergens in any of our products. We do not allow nuts in our facility to eliminate the possibility of cross contamination.
