    Camellia, we always come home from visiting our kids with a few pounds. The red beans we get here in PA just aren’t quite the same. If y’all need a northeastern U.S. regional sales rep let me know. Happy Mardi Gras!

    We mail my son, who has moved away from Louisiana and can’t get red beans to him among other things that we send him. A New Orleans care package if you will.
