Farm Steady Everything Bagel & Cream Cheese Making Kit---won a SOFI for this...and for those living far flung from the real deal bagel makers...this makes sense.$25 Contains the goods for a dozen bagels and homemade cultured cheese in one kit-shelf stable 12-18 months. And no worries-YouTube how to though we were told this is user friendly




Treats + Snacks

Kakosi 2 Minute Mousse...be impressed-light, airy and rich tasting...USDA Organic-with chocolate bits too. Bonus Points-this company -know for its chocolate-is committed to sustainable harvesting since its its founding

Sweetaly  Dolceria are made by artisans in every sense of the world-the Italian born, California based founders still hand make everything! These refrigerated desserts are so tasty you maybe can't pass off as your own HA HA . In single or two serving size (depending) the 3 ounce desserts are made with fresh ingredients like organic sugar cane+non-GMO chocolate-and  NO artificial sweeteners, preservatives, thickness, flavors, or colors... made from rBGH free milk/cream-packed in 4 pack/ jars to maintain that just made taste. We tried the new Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake-creamy, airy and light lovely sweet tart mouthful...plus available now in Italian classics Tiramisu, Panna Cotta Cappuccino Panna Cotta Sea Salted Caramel and Chocolate Mousse. Shelf life in the refrigerator=30 day and frozen-9 months.  

Crepini delivers to Americans a European everyday + sweet staple in filled versions including the new Dulce De Leche & Apple, packaged ten to a pack. Store in the freezer for 18 moths or in the refrigerator for 14 days-then just heat and serve. No preservatives, nut free, and Kosher.

Brunch food is a dining option throughout the day (and night)...Crepini's convenient Spinach Feta Crêpes have the perfect moist chewy texture of crepes-with this Mediterranean inspired filling-sold 15 to a pack.

France's rte treat by way of Brooklyn.-BAKERLY Crunchy Crêpes have a textural play on crispy creamy sweet-inside their shelf stable chewy individually wrapped snack. Non-GMO, no preservatives or artificial flavorings/colorings, rBST free milk, no trans fat...and unbleached flour used. Tasty-though we like our crepes hot off the press-these are good alternatives for snacking on the go.

Paradise Green -instant Thai Jasmine Rice and Wild Alaskan Salmon 'rice porridge' (congee)-packaged like ramen noodles...but better imo-no msg...

what it looks like when open...add water and heat

Saucer's Family Farms...Organic Eggs-hard cook-peeled ready to eat, right out of the bag. A real time saver for this healthy protein packed snack. 
This New Product entry from a Brooklyn based company, FAWEN -got a lot of interest...as their USDA Organic-Vegan ready-to-drink single serve  Drinkable Soups=made with fresh vegetables and spices-Himalayan salt, garlic,  in trendy blends (Broccoli& Cauliflower with Turmeric, what we tried -the delicious sweet-smoky Beet and Cabbage with Cumin-with swiss chard, turnips and blended in coconut milk, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and Sweet Potato & Red Lentil with Cinnamon)...are all winners.We could see these selling pretty much everywhere. Low fat and, gluten+ cholesterol free, non-GMO too...PLUS  Tetra Pack packaging is BPA free. Smart.
