We recently requested some products from this 100+ year old meat company and they were kind enough to oblige.

Let me start by saying that boudain is one of my favorite things on this planet and if you know what boudain is, you probably know Zummo’s. If you’ve never had boudain or you live outside of the territory and would love to have a source for some great boudain, you’re in luck because Zummo’s brand boudain is available in no less then 40 states at Walmart. You must absolutely get to your local Walmart and get some on a regular basis. If they don’t carry it, ask for it by name OR splurge and grab a case online at Zummo.com. It freezes well and you will love having extra.

Zummo’s is a family business that has been operating since 1908 in Beaumont Texas as a meat processor and a maker of fine sausage products. That’s over 100 years of experience and it shows in the quality of their products.


I received some of their fabulous boudain and a package of their best selling party links as well as some andouille. The party links, which I have not had before, were a fine grind smoked sausage, nicely spiced but not hot spicy, that cooked up well on the stove and on the grill. This is a great every day sausage. The kind that you buy a couple of packs and keep in your freezer for afternoon cookouts or a big pot of beans or cabbage. The sausage was free of any bone or by products showing that the Zummo’s are still paying attention to the details. I recommend you pick some up locally or purchase off their website.


I won’t say much about the boudain because it’s probably clear that I like it and I buy it regularly at my local Walmart. It’s good stuff.


Zummo has been around for a long time and these folks do a fine job with everything I’ve ever had the opportunity to sample. So get to your local store or order online, but get some Zummo products and overall I give them a 5 star review for their solid combination of great products for dining and cooking your favorite authentic dishes.

  1. I had been buying Zummo’s boudin at the local Walmart in Warrensburg MO but they stopped selling it about a year ago. I asked a manager about it and he said they apparently didn’t have enough call for it so corporate stopped stocking it at that store. An associate worker overheard this and said she had many requests for it. I suspect Walmart doesn’t want to pay the price for it so the customer suffers.

  2. I have been buying the Zummo smoked sausage links for about 3-4 yrs. now and the taste has changed in the last 1 1/2 or so. I have purchased these links I know at least a pack a week. I have the receipts to prove it. However today is probably my last. The taste is horrible. Taste nothing like they use to.

  3. Met a VERY NICE young man that is an employee of yours at Walmart in Orange today. Big-D took time to show me the different products you offer. I only hope the office realizes the great people you have and give them the praises they deserve.Again Big-D is a plus to your company…Thanks.

  4. Hello there,

    Just a note to ask if you know of the nearest retailer I can purchase Boudain from near 91730. They stopped selling it at Wal-Mart, so can’t get it anymore. The manager said the demand was not great enough, but I know that is just not true. Please advise.
    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

  5. It is BOUDIN not Boudian! The fact that Zummo doesn’t know how to spell boudin ought to give you a clue that they don’t know how to make make it! If you want the best boudin made you have to go to Jerry Lee’s on Greenwell Springs Road in Baton Rouge LA. Jerry Lee’s doesn’t provide tables or plates or eating utensils. You sit in your car or truck and eat it off of butcher paper. When I went to BR I would buy 20 to 30 lbs., ice it down, take it back to Dallas, put it in my freezer, and ration it until I was able to get back to Jerry Lee’s! Check the Cajun Grocer online and you should be able to get them to ship you some boudin that is better than Zummo’s. I currently live in the Austin TX area and can get reasonably boudin at Stuffed!

    1. Hello Jerome. Thanks for the feedback. Boudain is a long used spelling in Texas and since Zummo’s is a Texas company, that spelling works.

      The beautiful thing about boudin is every corner store/meat market has their own recipe so most folks find the one they like best and stick with it.

      I just got back from Scott and walking the line at Billy’s at 6:30 in the morning for some boudin and boudin balls has always been one of my favorites.

    2. i’ve got to agree …. boudin is so wonderful that i remember the first time i bit into one a few miles outside of opelousas in 1985… this odd spelling can’t help but make you wonder if it’s the real thing. i lived in louisiana for thirty years and never heard of zummo’s?

      1. We can agree that boudin is something special. Zummo’s is out of Beaumont Texas about 25 minutes outside Louisiana

    3. I don’t think Zummo mispelled it, I think they purposely spelled it the way most from Louisiana and my family from that area pronounce it – BOUDAIN.

  6. I will have to look for the boudin – it’s also one of my favorites and I miss it, after having moved from Houston back to the North.
