JEH JEH LIVE - Jeh Jeh joined us live from Glenwood Autism & Behavioral Health Center for the annual Pecans for Autism. Every purchase of Glenwood pecans and coffees raises funds essential for the operation of Glenwood's programs and services for children, adolescents, adults, and families with autism and behavioral health disorders. Glenwood sells only the freshest, "first-shake" pecans from southern pecan farms. Glenwood's pecan halves are mammoth-size, the largest and best-tasting pecans available. Pecans are an excellent source of protein and are loaded with antioxidants, may help prevent heart disease, and can contribute to lowering one's cholesterol. In addition to mammoth pecan halves by the pound, Glenwood is pleased to offer a variety of specialty pecans and items including: Fresh Gourmet Pecan Halves, Pecan-flavored Coffees, and wonderful Holiday Gift Assortments. You can find them at local holiday festivals or at most Winn-Dixie, Piggly Wiggly, Bruno's, Belle Foods, Food World, National Bank of Commerce, Iberia Bank, and M&F Bank Inverness stores.
