Fig Almond Spread by Gracious Gourmet
http://www.thegraciousgourmet.com/Fig-Almond-Spread-v-160.html

When I dipped the spoon in the jar I was expecting a puree of figs but what I got was a delicious combination of the anticipated puree, dried figs, sliced almonds with just a hint of citrus.  I could just imagine this luscious combination as a glaze for fish or chicken but the gang in the office decided it was perfect with Brie cheese and rice crackers.  (It was!)

Another tasty treat that didn’t last long in the office was Terry’s Toffee.  The McCall’s Dark was scrumptious but even better was Peppermint Pistachio.  A family recipe inspires Terry’s exotic infusions which make these toffees a mouth-watering, crunchy slice of heaven.  Indulge… we did!

chipBeanfield Chips
Delicious and healthy snacks for the family that are also good for the planet…  That’s the concept behind the company and that’s what they deliver.  Their gluten-free bean and rice chips are loaded with protein and fiber.  As for the flavors - our office taste test came up a draw but I noticed the Pico de Gallo flavor vanished first.  These are ideal snacks for the entire family and perfect on your summer picnics.  ‘Crispylicious’ is on the bag and that’s exactly what they are! Look for it in your local market.

 

 

All Natural Beaver Gourmet Ketchupkat
If you think Ketchup is ketchup you have to try Beaverton Foods All Natural Beaver Gourmet Ketchup with Honey Mustard.  This condiment gives any food it touches a decisive extra zip, but would it pass the kid test?  It did with a resounding, “More!”  From turkey loaf to sweet potato fries this gourmet ketchup beat all others hands down! Look for it in your local market.
