They’re Pumpkin Seeds to You & Pepitas to Me!
Pepitas are a darling of a seed that we mix into any number of L’Orenta trail mixes and other options. Yes, these green bits of wonder come from pumpkins that create spectacular fields as fall approaches. Pumpkins are associated with delicious pies, tricks and treats, and Hallowe’en carving. Yet that season lasts only just so long. The season of the pepita is year-round!
That year-round experience is one we promote here at L’Orenta by having an array of snack options that include pumpkin seeds. We do so in part because of the flavor and delicate crunch they bring to each mix, and also because of their health-promoting gifts. They’re loaded with magnesium and potassium that help with wound healing. Added to that, they contain omega-3s and 6s, fatty acids that are heart healthy. They also contain sterols that are known to aid in reducing bad cholesterol. That’s only part of what this darling of a seed can do!
Another health-focused approach we take is to offer options that are free of wheat, soy, dairy, gluten, or peanuts. So, while viewing all of our many assortments, keep a lookout for those, as you likely know someone who makes wise choices because of sensitivities or discriminating food selection. Our care with gourmet nuts and goodies started with our great-great-grandfather who founded the company back in 1934. He believed that freshly roasted nuts produced with the best ingredients offered people healthy nutrition that could be on hand throughout their day. We follow that wisdom as we carry on, now in our fifth generation.
One key to keeping your pumpkin seed snack fresh when it arrives at your door from our plant in San Antionio TX, is to wrap it up in a resealable bag. We do that with each one and five pound purchase you make. This assures you that when you wisely order extra, each bag will be as fresh as the last.

Along with pumpkin seeds as part of the mix, our selections are robust and varied. Here’s a sampling to get you on your way!
Roasted and Salted Pumpkin Seeds are as good on their own as they are mixed up with other seeds and nuts. Of course, it’s fun to be a purist and enjoy them on their own. Then again, you may opt to sprinkle some in with a bowl of chili or as a fun addition to a tray of enchiladas. Hmm, what about dessert? Oh yes, pepitas and pumpkin pie with dollops of freshly whipped cream. What a divine combo!
Mixes with Seeds is a wonderful page to view, now that you’re getting enthused and ready to buy pumpkin seeds. You’ll find them mixed with nuts, some with candy coating, and others sprinkled with spice. Each selection there is excitingly nice with most boasting energy-boosting powers, too!
Roasted and Salted Sunflower Seeds sure are delicate and unassuming. So interesting, given the tall, glowing power and strength of each sunflower. Don’t let the seed’s diminutive size fool you, for these add a tantalizing crunch to any mix. That’s why they’re a staff favorite on their own, right out of the bag!
Dried and Fruit Nut Mixes are a hit with so many of our customers. A number of these hearty snacks are L’Orenta exclusives, meaning we developed the recipe, tested it out with everyone who works here, and decided to share the delights with you! These assortments are super on day trips, including those with lots of vigorous exercise. Of course a number are fun on their own or with a favorite dessert.
