This month, I am sharing some food, drink, and travel-related products for the entire family. They bring fun to the kitchen and put smiles on faces. I hope they do the same for you.
MYX Fusions Light Rosé
This refreshing rosé hits the spot with its ripe fruit notes and delicate dry finish. It sets the mood for a summertime soiree. It’s now my favorite canned wine. Available in Light Chardonnay which is equally good. Cheers!
Retail price: $12.00 per 4-pack
Cali Bagels Organic Bagel Mix
This mix consists of everything you need to make delicious bagels at home. The instructions are easy to follow. It doesn’t take long to prepare and bake. They come out the oven golden, soft, and chewy. They taste amazing! Move over Auntie Anne’s; I’m in love with Cali.
Retail price: $21.95 (2-pack)
Size: 22 ounces
Mother Scrub Drinking Vinegar, Ginger
I prefer consuming this zingy vinegar as a shot for a morning pick-me-up. The spicy ginger warms the mouth, and the apple cider leaves a mild tartness on the tongue. Surprisedly, I think they complement each other due to the well-blended cane sugar. Available in other flavors.
Retail price: $8 | $12 | $19.50
Size: 4 ounces | 8 ounces | 16 ounces
Sweet Nothings Variety Pack
It’s still hot outside and kids are heading back to school. Treat them to some spoonable smoothies for breakfast or an afternoon snack without the added sugar. Each one contains flax and chia seeds without compromising the taste. The fresh fruit provides a sweet creaminess for a lip-smacking experience. Single flavors available.
Retail price: $46.99 (12-pack)
Size: 3.5 ounces
Available: https://eatsweetnothings.com, Thrive Market and Amazon Fresh
Four Roses Bourbon Small Batch Select
I’m no bourbon connoisseur, but I like this. It goes down hot and smooth. It releases a hint of sweetness while the heat lingers on my palate. It makes a wonderful cocktail with a splash or two of cola.
Mariam’s Garlic Goodness Dips
These dips will get you into some delicious trouble. Commonly known as “Toom,” these Lebanese garlic dips will have you dipping again and again and are perfect to use as a marinade and dressing over vegetables, proteins and more. The zesty smooth tubs of goodness are plant-based and ketogenic and a garlic lover’s dream come true.
Retail price: $8.99
Size: 8 oz.
Available: https://www.mariamsmediterranean.com (California only)
Olio Piro. Mezzo Litro, Annata 2020
Imported from Italy, this extra virgin oil has a silky earthiness that I enjoy. I use it to sauté vegetables and as a dipping sauce for crusty bread. Delightful!
Retail price: $59
Nathan’s Runaway 20 Liter Day Pack
This stylish pack holds all the necessities for hiking, running, or a day trip. It has compartments for a laptop, clothing, and water bottles. I’m fond of the hidden tube port for a water bladder – a great feature to stay hydrated. Contents stay in place. The chest strap also fits comfortably. I’m a new fan of this lightweight bag.
Retail price: $40
Db Duplex 50L Split Duffel
I’m crazy about this six-pocket functional bag. Carry it with ease as a duffel or a backpack while on an excursion. Unzip the middle portion to open and fold down. The sturdy recycled nylon holds it rectangle shape. This allows you to store items into two protected sections. Neat!
Retail price: $259
Size: H 51 cm x W 34 cm x D 28 cm
