Marcia Nodel (chef, mother and self-professed dog lover) launched her own movement more than 30 years ago – “elegant snacking,” promoting foods free of artificial additives but full of flavor. She began making pickles and other Elegant Snacks™ as a weekend treat from her kids. Over time, her caramel corn, pickles, jams and fancy nut mixes gained popularity among friends and family who always wanted to have her delicacies stocked in their pantries. After deciding that others deserved a taste too, Marcia began selling her artisanal snacks at gourmet food stands in Southeastern Michigan.

In January 2014, Marcia’s Munchies bread-and-butter style pickles won a national Good Food Award and Marcia was presented with a medal from Alice Waters and Ruth Reichel at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. We hope you enjoy the new twist on a traditional recipe.

Marcia was featured on WXYZ Detroit’s Mom’s A Genius segment, is a proud member of the Good Food Merchants Guild and was a speaker at MSU’s Making it in Michigan Conference in November 2015.
