Alexis George, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
This floral aromatic wine sips like chocolate covered berries with a hint of sweetness. I appreciate its full body and tart finish. The dry vino pairs well with medium-rare steak or a rich macaroni and cheese. Cheers!
Retail price: $25
Big Red’s Hot Sauce, Smother Sauce Combo
This savory combo contains Blackberry Rum Sauce and the AZ (Arizona) Jerk Sauce. I describe the rum sauce as uniquely delightful. The fruity heat adds lusciousness that you cannot get in other brands. The jerk sauce smells and tastes like an island BBQ in a jar. It brings the spice and gives baked chicken layers of pizzazz. Both are um um good!
Retail price: $8 (individually) | $15 (combo)
Size: 23 oz. | 46 oz.
A.L.L. Seasoning, Sweet Summa Love
Sugar and spice make everything nice. The brown sugar dances on the tongue and then, the pepper slows it down and lingers. This pleasant seasoning blend will excite your palate. Get you some!

Trufflin, Truffle Sriracha & Ranch VIP Set
This dynamic duo arrives in elegant packaging. Toss wings in the hot sriracha and serve the creamy ranch on the side. The pungent truffles elevate the experience. It provides a subtle exquisite earthiness that complements both items. I consider this a magnificent gift for a foodie.
Retail price: $44.50
Size: 8 oz. each
Yolélé Fonio Pilaf, Greens! Moringa + Spinah
This appetizing grain cooks quick. It reminds me of a bowl of greens and cornbread due to its grittiness. The flavorful side dish serves four. Pair it with grilled vegetables or meat for a complete meal.
