Argires Snacks


We have an incredible business that has been in our family since 1949. We roast and salt our own shelled nuts, make our own trail mixes, and make the MOST INTENSELY MEMORABLE gourmet cheese and caramel popcorn. We sell a lot of in shell nuts year round for parrot owners/breeders and those that love to feed their squirrels.

All of our products are OUTRAGEOUSLY GOOD!

There is the phenomenon of the downtown popcorn shops and you see people sometimes standing in line for popcorn. I have been told that we have “them beat”. Ours is so good and we have so many people come to our outlet store in Alsip, IL and tell us how they needed to buy more. (Of course, you will have to judge for yourselves.) Pleasingly messy. Yep, I mean it, the cheese will get all over your hands.

If you live in Chicago or are visiting the area we would love to meet you in person! You can find our address and driving directions on our website below.

I would love to have you visit our web store and try some of our products. You can find us at: I know you will enjoy them. (We offer quantity discounts at the site.)



P.S. If you buy wholesale nuts or gourmet popcorn in large quantities or are just curious what our wholesale company does, you can learn more by visiting
