About Us

The Head Nut is one of the Main Line's favorite places to buy nuts and candy. Our roots can be traced back to Temp Tee Nuts, a nut packaging company founded in 1945. Over the years, the family-owned business has reinvented itself with changing times. Today we sell not only nuts, but also our own brand of coffee roasted by Main-Line Coffee Roasters, teas from around the world, more gummy candies than imaginable, spices galore, and everything in between. What hasn't changed, however, is our mom-and-pop style. We sell most of our items in bulk, which saves you money and assures freshness, and we sell many of our products wholesale (please call for more details).

Here is a little insight into how we roast our coffee. We have approximately over 80 various coffees which include regular, numerous flavored coffees along with many decaf coffees from all over the world.
