Peanut Brittle is a simple candy made primarily of sugar and nuts, and it was one of the earliest candies ever formulated. Ancient brittles likely originated in the Middle East and were composed of honey and sesame seeds. Over time, the concoction evolved according to regional preferences and ingredient experimentation. Modern peanut brittle first came into existence over two hundred years ago during the pioneer days of the United States. (from http://recipes.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Category:Peanut_Brittle_Recipes)

Here at Rick’s Brittle we have learned that many of our combat troops may at times only rest once every three or four days. They often have to wear the same uniform for as long as two or three weeks at a time. It is not uncommon for them to go two to three weeks without bathing. Their meals consist of MRE’s (meals ready to eat) in the field. MRE’s only come in four or five varieties. Most service personal are sick and tired of MRE’s after eating them for several weeks. Can you imagine having to eat them for six months, nine months, or a year and a half? Our troops must be in a constant state of readiness: ready to fight and defend at a moment’s notice; ready to endure the wounding or death of a comrade and friend; ready to have the constant threat of death looming over their shoulder. Under these conditions it is no wonder a person’s morale and spirit may sag or become diminished. Under these circumstances it is very important that we do our part by sending the servicemen or women we know an encouraging letter, tell them we support what they are doing, and that we are praying for their safety and well being. Sending a pound package of brittle can make all the difference in the lives of our servicemen and women. It reminds them that they are not alone, that they have not been forgotten, that they have our support, and that they have a home and loved ones waiting for their safe return.
