America's favorite food has gone gourmet at the Peanut Butter Emporium in Overton. Carrie Parsons had always dreamed of owning a peanut butter store and in 2002 she and her husband Keith made that dream come true. The Emporium has been a huge success with such gourmet flavors in their Nutty's Brand as White Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Cup, and Peanut Butter Brickle, to name just a few of their twelve flavors.
The Parson's "Honey Roasted Crunch" was recently featured in "Every Day With Rachael Ray Magazine'"as the "Best in the Honey Category". The Emporium also has a brisk lunch trade for their specialty sandwiches such as "Cinnamon Crisp and "Peanut Butter Heaven". The store hours are Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
