Hey, Check This Out! February 2019

RENDER State Bird Crunch

Don’t be fooled by the name, this tasty treat is not for birds, it’s for you!  STATE BIRD CRUNCH is the savory brainchild of two James Beard award-winning, Michelin-starred chefs. While working in their restaurant in San Francisco, they played with crafty ways to minimize food waste. And what they discovered is that leftover quinoa crisped and mixed with roasted nuts, seeds and spices was pretty amazing! Use State Bird Crunch to top anything from fish to salad to cheese but trust us, you will become addicted to its savory crunch and just eat it straight from the bag.

Check out all three varieties—Sea Salt, Furikake with added seaweed, and Almond Rosemary with, you guessed it, added almonds and herbs. Are all organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and vegan. And sugar-free with the exception of the FURIKAKE seaweed which is roasted with just a touch of sugar.


Quark??? What’s that? Well, it’s like yogurt. But milder and creamier. Rich and velvety. It’s Bavarian—a delicious marriage of yogurt and cream cheese. One taste and you’ll know why this is named “Liebe” because “Lee-buh” means love.

Each container is packed with protein and you’ll find 4 flavors to love —Raspberry Rapture, Strawberry Kiss, Vanilla Devotion, and Plain Passion—in our refrigerated cases.

VELVET BEES Honey Butter

How do you describe Velvet Bees Honey Butter? Heavenly! Delicious! O!M!G! This product is really good. Spread some on your morning toast or bagels. Mix a spoonful in with oatmeal of plain yogurt. Dip fruit into it. Drizzle some on cheese. Try a peanut butter and honey butter sandwich. We haven’t found much that doesn’t taste better with Velvet Bees Honey Butter.

Handcrafted in Minnesota with just five ingredients: honey, butter, heavy cream, cane sugar, and vanilla – it’s only 20 calories per teaspoon.

SPECIAL NOTE: We are about to try a Liebe Plain Passion Quark with a spoonful of Velvet Bees Honey Butter and a sprinkle of State Bird Sea Salt Crunch on top for what we think will be a sweet salty delectable lunch today.

Oh, and one more…
SoCo CREAMERY — Dirty Chocolate Ice Cream

Handcrafted in the Berkshires (and with milk from Kingdom Creamery, a family-owned and run farm in Vermont) SoCo was recently voted “Best Ice Cream” in Massachusetts!

With flavors like Salted Caramel and Espresso Cookie to choose from there are a lot of hard decisions to make but make sure you try the Dirty Chocolate—a blend of light chocolate, dark chocolate, and pure cocoa—one of the richest chocolate ice creams you’ve ever tasted.
