The best desert food brands have been around for a long time, and they’re all making waves these days.
Here’s a look at some of the most interesting ones out there.
Desert Gold Ranch , a food and beverage chain started by Tom and Julie Grosvenor, have been consistently producing award-winning food for over a decade.
Founded by Gros and Tom Grosvinger in 1991, Desert Gold Ranch is now the third-largest desert food brand in the world behind Cantina de Cantina and the Gold Coast, Australia’s leading desert foodie’s.
The Gros family’s family-owned business is a staple in the popular foodie lifestyle.
Gros has since opened her own restaurant chain, but is a staunch supporter of local farmers.
The Gold Coast has been the Gros Family’s hometown since the mid-1990s, and has been home to Desert Gold’s most popular product, Desert Silver, for the past 20 years.
The company sells the salty, rich, and crunchy snacks, and its products are sold in more than 300 stores across Australia.
In 2017, the Gys sold their business to the Goldcoats, who own Desert Silver and Cantina Gold, and now offer the G-Ranch products at the Goldcorp supermarket.
The family-run business has also been lauded for the variety of delicious recipes, which include chicken, shrimp, and pork.
