Eastern New Mexico University is seeking help to name new ENMU branded garlic and green chile pistachio, a pistachio caramel popcorn, and a spicy date with pecan cookies. Eastern New Mexico University is partnering with Heart of the Desert out of Alamogordo, NM, to produce and sell an ENMU-branded Garlic & Green Chile Pistachios (In-Shell) and a Pistachio Caramel Popcorn. The sweet, crunchy taste of popcorn mixes with farm-fresh pistachio nutmeats for a fun snack, while the garlic and green chile pistachios burst with heat and flavor.


ENMU is also partnering with Snugglecubs Cookies of Albuquerque, N.M., to produce and sell an ENMU-branded Spicy Date with Pecan cookie. Both of these companies are New Mexico True certified companies, and a percentage of the proceeds of these products goes back to ENMU to support scholarships.

“I’ve sampled the Garlic & Green Chile favored Pistachios and the Pistachio Caramel Popcorn, and I can assure you they’ll be crowd-pleasers. This is a wonderful way to help students with scholarships, support great New Mexico businesses and reward yourself and your friends with products that are thoroughly New Mexican,” Said ENMU President Patrice Caldwell.


As with the recent ENMU-branded coffee and salsa launches, anyone can submit an ENMU-themed pistachio or popcorn name to or a cookie name to before Feb. 25, 2022.
