I guess there isn't much to making it other than combining the right ingredients in the right proportions.

Wally Szul is the plant manager for the Germack Pistachio Company in Allen Park, Michigan.


I live in Michigan.  Germack is sold in a lot of stores here.  Even Walmart.  You can get some flavors for around 2 bucks a jar. 


Never heard the vendor mention Ponch.  So not sure on that one. Woman Happy

When my dh worked (for one of the big 3), now retired, Germack would come to his building several times a year selling their products. I purchased a lot! To me, they are the best on the market! But I'm in Michigan and they live just down the "road"! Their freshness is undescribeable!

Ponch is the "mixer" in the warehouse, according to the Germack lady.
