About Us

Hello, we’re Nutty D’Lites

… and we love nuts.

Come along and visit us at our Nut Cart you‘ll find a selection of Cashews, Almonds, Walnuts, Hazelnuts and Peanuts lovingly coated in a gratifyingly crunchy caramel. An artisan confection that we hand make over an open flame to an original recipe in a traditional copper pot, just as generations of confectioners have done before us.

We’re passionate about Roasted Caramelised Nuts and our home in Nelson, NZ.

The Nut Man produces his Nutty D’Lites – Roasted Caramelised Nuts in small batches.


Nutty D’Lites began roasting nuts in European cities in Denmark, Germany and the UK before making our way to Aotearoa and finding a home in Sunny Nelson. 

We’ve been at the Nelson Market and Motueka Sunday Market for over a decade and we still LOVE serving up our nutty treats to customers young and old.

Nut-ricious, tasty and freshly made … 

… with all-natural ingredients too! 

We freshly make our nuts on-site using all-natural ingredients. Gluten-free, vegan and naturally high protein. Nutty D’Lites make for the perfect snack.
