Hawkshead Bloody Mary Ketchup
Bloody Mary Ketchup!

This Bloody Mary ketchup sends a wonderful tingle-twinge up the nostrils - it is sweet with a hint of angry - and reminds one a little of a V8. To the eye it is thinner than a "The best things come to those who wait" ketchup, and it pours quickly in a nice bright red color.

As you taste, the lips taste nothing, the tongue tingles and the back of the throat coughs! All the flavors are mixed together and come out in a racy way. In the end your lips tingly, the edges of your tongue are too and if you have enough spoonfuls your body starts to get hot!

It is delicious fun, and just right for the next dog in your life.

NeoCocoa Black Sesame Seed Toffee Brittle Toffee Brittle!
with Black Sesame!
A runaway hit! One bite (bag) and you will be hooked for life! The first bite is joyous, a crunch that is easy to do, an explosion of subtle flavor of chocolate, with the toasted sesame on the edges of the tongue to tingle and espouses flavor twistys of change. There is a lot more sesame flavor than just what is on top.... (look closely at the edge and you will see the black sesame is in the toffee too!)

The enjoyment factor with a small piece is so much better because a large piece gives you a mouthful of "candy" which you consume because you are forced to chew and swallow. With a small, thumb-size piece you can taste the chocolate, enjoy the crunch of the sugar which blend with the dark chocolate and get the sesame on the edge of your tongue.

You finish with clean molars, and a lovely dark chocolate flavor that makes you want to suck in your cheeks and the sesame.

my kind of treat

"This black sesame seed toffee brittle chocolate is my kind of treat. It’s the perfect amount of sweet to feel indulgent but not guilty. The rich burnt sugar taste of the toffee is great with the black sesame crunch, pulled out with a smidge of salt. Coated in chocolate. Really good."

Parmigiano-Reggiano Winter Cheese Black Garlic Ketchup
Healthy longevity comes from eating Black Garlic!

This dark, very dark gourmet ketchup is nothing like the red stuff we have used our whole lives. In fact, it does not resemble anything we have had before. Though, I am thinking that the next burger I make will have this as the condiment of excellence.

The flavor of this gourmet ketchup is not “garlic”, at least not to the taste buds. It takes some cheek smacking to get the garlic… the flavor is much more about the complete experience. You get a sweet twinge of goodness with hints of Balsamic and caramel. This is like an enhancement of black garlic in a ready to pour form!

"This was given to me as a gift, I might not have risked it but I’m so glad I have tried it now. The other night I made a pecan crusted chicken breast and smashed fried potatoes and salad. Everything was good but needed some oomph so I tried this and it went from good to great. We tried mixing with some mayonnaise and smoked chipotle Tabasco and voila, a perfect sauce for pretty much anything. The flavor is just the right level, not overbearing, but different than anything I’ve had before"

Cold Mountain Dry Rice Koji Cold Mountain Dry Rice Koji the secret ingredient!

Easy to use with incredible results

"After hearing about Shio Koji, a lot, it was time to give it a try. With Cold Mountain Koji it was as simple as adding the Koji rice, some water and salt. After 10 days +1 it was ready. Since then I have tried it on and in just about everything. Fish, meats, vegetables, anywhere I would normally add a dash of salt, including on my eggs. The effect has ranged from subtle to profound. This is my new secret ingredient. Combine it with a good soy sauce for even more effect in stir fry or fried rice. Marinate meats before grinding them into sausage or even in burgers. The possibilities are many. If you are into fermenting then definitely give this a try. You will be back for seconds..."

Smooth Order

"My order arrived in a timely manner. Shipping was fast. No issues with the packaging. I look forward to fermenting the rice and cooking with it in the coming weeks. Helpful instructions are included in the packaging."

Lummi Island Wild Albacore Tuna Wild-Caught Canned Tuna From the Northwest

I want to tell you a wonderful fish the link below to read the story ...

Best Canned Tuna Ever *****

"I’ve tried many canned tunas, and this one is the best. It has a fresh mild flavor, with a firm flakey texture. Most canned tunas are more water than fish; a very fishy waterlogged mess in a can. This problem simply did not exist. With most canned tunas I’ve had, the only way to enjoy them is drain and squeeze out all of the water and turn it into a tuna salad. Lummi Island tuna was so good, I could enjoy it straight from the can. Lummi Island Tuna is delicious and I highly recommend it."
