NuNu's Cajun Seasoning has made cooks around Acadiana the envy of backyard barbeques. NuNu's reputation is built on a flavorful seasoning that makes for delicious and easy dinners—just pick out your seasoned cut of meat, put it in the oven or on the grill, and it’s perfect! NuNu's is a 3rd generation family owned and operated grocery store business.
The NuNu’s story begins at the Blue Room Lounge in Milton, Louisiana. Opened in 1953 by Arthé Broussard, grandfather to the current generation of family owners, the Blue Room Lounge was a popular stop in the afternoons. Many a retired gentleman would steal away to the Blue Room when they were supposed to be headed to the grocery store.
Art would help his customers out by stocking a little of this and that extra, but he soon realized locals needed a grocery store more than they needed a lounge . . . and so NuNu’s opened for business.
In 1976 Walter & Jeanette Broussard, Arthé’s son and daughter-in-law, opened a new building in Milton. That next year, the key to NuNu’s success was born... quite by accident. When the butcher went on vacation, family members scrambled to figure out the recipe for the popular seasoning mix. Once they had that recipe down, it was a natural next step to offer the seasoning for sale.
