DeVine Wine Jelly Blackberry Merlot 

Have your wine and eat it too. This fragrant jelly by Lakesha Veney smells and tastes like the real thing. The sweet pungent flavor maintains its wine appeal and leaves blackberry notes dangling on the tongue. The delightful spread smoothly goes on toast and crackers and the cute jar resembles a condiment given by room service at a luxury hotel. Treat yourself.

OG Hot Sauce Onion & Garlic

Kick your dish up a notch. This flaming goodness created by Mia Rebel uses three colorful habaneros to heat up the palate. The onion, garlic, and spices give it a thick, savory flavor that sets it apart from regular hot sauce. Use it on fried fish and breakfast burritos for zing; a little goes a long way. It comes in mild or hot and spicy for varying tastes.

Sonoma Syrup Company No. 5 Peppermint

Made with pure cane sugar, this delicious syrup exudes an aroma reminiscent of a candy factory. The minty sweetness adds a cool sensation to hot chocolate and transforms unsweetened seltzer water into an invigorating soda. The entire family will love exploring ways to use it.

Dry Sparkling Ginger

This refreshing drink by Sharelle Klaus warms the soul. The spicy, robust ginger beverage contains a hint of sugar and finishes dry. Drink it by itself or pair it with grilled shrimp. With fewer calories than ginger ales per serving and no artificial sweeteners, who wouldn’t want to add this to their grocery list? Cheers!

Holmsted Fines Balsamic Red Onion Chutney

Chunky, juicy and bold – this sweet chutney looks like caramelized onions in a jar. The vinegar scent tickles the nose while stimulating the appetite. The acidity complements the sugar, making the delectable onions irresistible. Try it on a butter cracker with brie or put it on a burger to give it life. You’ll thank us and creator Rebecca Williamson.
