  As a caterer, Eleanor Harren was constantly receiving requests for her creamy pralines for everything from barbeques to weddings. She knew her Aunt Aggie De's recipe was a winner. In 1987, at age 55, Eleanor began Aunt Aggie De's Pralines, with small batches being made by Eleanor herself in her kitchen. Word quickly got out about the delectable pralines and she now occupies two buildings in Sinton, Texas. In one, pralines and other confections are still being made in batches and with the same care and quality of ingredients she used when she started the company. The main storefront at 311 W. Sinton boasts a giant squirrel named Agnes and houses the primary retail store. Aunt Aggie De's has remained committed to USA grown and processed ingredients, with the only exception being the Madagascar vanilla beans (which are processed in the USA) and the Belgian chocolate used in chocolate confections. Aunt Aggie De's sells over 2 million pralines each year and guarantees them to be 100% delicious.

Thoughts on America:
Eleanor Harren, founder and CEO of Aunt Aggie De's Pralines, has always believed in using American grown ingredients in her pralines, even when it costs her significantly more money than her competition. From the start, Eleanor has searched for the best ingredients, from her Alabama pecans to Hawaii grown sugar which is processed in California -- a real rarity in the candy industry. All ingredients she uses but the Madagascar vanilla beans and Belgian chocolate are grown here, and even the vanilla beans are processed here, so her products support even more jobs than the ones directly at her Texas business, where the candy is made by Texas workers. Even her website was designed by a Texas web designer and is hosted in Kansas. Eleanor believes strongly that small business is the backbone of America. She strives to make a difference in her community, not only by employing many in her small town but also by sending pralines to local military personnel serving abroad. She cares about the small town in which her business thrives. Only in America could a 55-year-old former housewife and mother begin a business out of her kitchen which would eventually encompass two buildings and sell over 2 million pralines nationwide per year!
