Born in Jordan in 1953, The Nut House set down new roots in a Chicago suburb five years ago and opened a Paterson location this spring. If you like nuts for nuts' sake, they've got you covered. If you prefer them confected with Turkish delight, the shop has more than 20 varieties, most in wraps that will be scissored into short, sharable segments, and another 10 or so plain (nut-free) flavors. For many of us, it's a new way to feel like a kid in a candy store.
