    What you'll see at our Tasting Event

    Bonelli Sesame Spread - Think of a lighter peanut butter version.  If you like sesame seeds, then you'll love this.  We'll have two options to taste: almond & vanilla or the pistachio & cardamom.  They are both amazing, but I'm partial to the pistachio.  ;)

    PBCrave - For a while now I've been reading blog posts about this amazing company and their crazy peanut butter combinations.  In August we attended the Fancy Food Show in NYC and on our way out I found PBCrave's booth.  I was so excited to have found them and even more excited that their products were as good as everyone had said.  Their peanut butter comes in four flavors: cookie nookie, choco choco, coco bananas and razzle dazzle (raspberry and chocolate).  All four varieties will be available for tasting.


    Tropic Bee - For you honey lovers, we've got the best of both worlds in one bottle.  Tropic Bee has merged their Florida Orange Blossom honey with Florida Meyer Lemon juice creating the perfect sweetener.

    Intensity Academy - While at the Food and Wine Conference in Orlando this summer, I had the pleasure of meeting Michelle Northup owner of Intensity Academy gourmet sauces.  She came up with the idea of making a carrot hot sauce from her own garden.  Her company is Florida based and has won 53 National awards for her sauces.  We've already gone through a jar of her Carrot Karma sauce at home and can't wait to try the rest of her products.

    Please let your friends know about our event.  We hope to see you there!

  • New Fall Dessert Menu

    We've been having some fun in the Shortcake area this week.  Now that the stores already have Halloween candy on the shelves and even Starbucks has their "PSL" (Pumpkin Spice Latte) available, we figured it was time to release our new Fall Dessert Menu!

    Fall Dessert Menu

    New Fall Menu...

    Yes!  Our Pumpkin Pie Milkshake has returned.  But it brought some friends along too.  We brought back the Apple Pie Milkshake, now with some graham cracker crumbs.  My new favorite milkshake would be the "Birthday Cake" with colorful sprinkles.  Yes, I also happened to celebrate my birthday earlier this week. ;)  Dad has been asking for a caramel milkshake for a while, so we came up with two: White Chocolate Caramel and Heath.  Yep, my work here is done.

    But, we didn't stop there.  Next up, our new Dessert Cups!  Everyone loves a chocolate turtle, right?  You know those tasty little clusters of nuts, chocolate and caramel.  Yep.  That's what we did.  Take our vanilla ice cream, top it with hot fudge, caramel and whip cream.  Yum.

    But what about the cheesecake lovers? We came up with two choices: our Pumpkin Cheesecake Cup or a Strawberry Cheesecake Cup.  And yet, I still wanted more.  So, thinking about all great things that go with fall, I couldn't stop there.  Next up, is our Smore's in a cup.  People, I ate the whole thing.  I. Could. Not. Stop. It was that good!  Without giving away any secrets ;) there's real marshmallows in it!  How could one resist?

    So, there you have it.  I hope you'll stop by and try one of our new creations.  Let us know how you like them by visiting our Facebook page.  Or better yet, share it with your friends!

    Are you ready for Fall?
