WELCOME TO BOPHADES TASTY NUTS:

We are a Veteran-Owned gourmet snack company, with a passion for quality snacks, good friends, and great times.

In the summer of 2018, the company founders, Justin Hansen and Joshua Tesmer, decided that the world needed a snack company that was dedicated to serving the veteran community. After months of searching for the right combinations of ingredients, texture, and taste, Bophades Tasty Nuts was formed.

A portion of every purchase made here goes to small veteran charities in need.

OUR MISSION:

Our mission is to keep your energy up with an array of quality nuts and snack foods, so you can stay in the fight longer. Everyone here at Bophades Tasty Nuts are either veterans, or affiliated with the veteran community. Our processes are USDA certified, and our products are meticulously vetted for quality. Our nuts are roasted in small batches, by hand, right here in the United States of America.

We are also here for you. If at anytime, you need some support, reach out and one of our community members will be happy to talk with you. Our goal is to simultaneously build a veteran-oriented brand, together with a network of support for veterans and their families.

No matter where your mission takes you, Bophades Tasty Nuts has your back. If for some reason you don’t like our products, we offer a 100%, no BS guarantee: If for any reason you don’t like our nuts, we will gladly provide you a refund.
