Chocolate Mega Coin from RM Palmer

Candy coins have a long tradition as Christmas treats. In the past Palmer has been among the many candy makers producing chocolate doubloons or candy coins  b2ap3_thumbnail_coin.jpgmade to look like pirates’ gold. This year, Palmer has minted a uniquely wondrous creation that will surely stand out from the typical candy coin, in flavor and especially in size. Measuring eight inches across and weighing in at a whopping one pound, Palmer’s Mega Coin is an impressive accomplishment. Made from rich Belgian chocolate, the Mega Coin is sure to please the most discriminating chocolate fan. The coins are renditions of the classic Kennedy half-dollars of the 1960s, themselves popular stocking stuffers once upon a time. Each super-sized coin is festively wrapped in bright foil, ready to be enjoyed by kids of all ages. Larger than life and deliciously chocolaty, Palmer’s Mega Coins will be available this season everywhere Palmer’s line of chocolate novelties are sold. Visit Palmer’s holiday website (www.rmpalmer.com) to find a retailer near you.




Heilala Vanilla Gift Set

b2ap3_thumbnail_email-version-Heilala-Vanilla_Logo-R-CMYK_20151225-004137_1.jpgThe ideal gift for bakers!  Behind this most intoxicating vanilla lies a story. What started as a gift of land from a Tongan chief turned into an aid project and then a flourishing business.  Our family was lured by the unspoiled beauty of the Vava’u Islands in the Kingdom of Tonga and the beautiful people.  Using our horticultural background and research facilities in Tauranga New Zealand, a Vanilla Plantation came to pass.

The richest grade of Vanilla in the Asia Pacific region calls for lots of tender love and care. The most perfect and natural growing environment meant that we were off to a good start. Add to this our organic growing principles and you get vanilla grown in organic virgin soil, on coconut husk frames, hand pollinated and dried under the Pacific Sun, then stored at optimum conditions to ensure full flavour develops.  This is what gives our 100% Pure Heilala Vanilla (of the Bourban variety) its distinctive aroma, shine and plumpness!

Heilala Vanilla (pronounced “hey-la-la”) began as an aid project by New Zealand dairy farmer John Ross to assist a village in one of the world’s most beautiful and remote places-Vava’u Islands in the Kingdom of Tonga.  Ross and his family fell in love with the Tongan people and environment.  He subsequently used their horticultural background and research facilities in Tauranga, New Zealand to establish a vanilla plantation.  In 2005, Heilala Vanilla was born.

Heilala Vanilla products are available for purchase at Sprouts Farmers Markets and Earth Fare stores, Bristol Farms in Northern and Southern California, Oliver's Markets in Northern California and online atfood52.com, OpenSky, Chefshop.commenusandmusic.comSweetwise.com (online and at their Nashville store location) and heilalavanilla.com.

b2ap3_thumbnail_trukid1.jpgWhen founder and mother of six, Jennifer Adams Bunkers, created TruKid, there weren’t a whole lot of children’s products on the market for her to choose from, and a lot of the stuff out there was chemical-filled and unhealthy, or smelled “yucky”, according to her kids. Jennifer always felt hesitant to use those products on her children, so she set out to create products using only natural ingredients, and essential oils to make scents that children love.  She created an easy system, made up of products accompanied with fun educational activities, so kids could learn how to take care of themselves.  TruKid also provide parents with information on Toxic Bad Guys commonly found in other personal care products so they can make informed decisions when it comes to caring for their kids.

A jar of Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter


Forget what you know about peanut butter as a spread.  Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter is here to change all of that.  It sounds grand I know but it is b2ap3_thumbnail_pb.jpgthat simple and the Pic’s Really Good Peanut Butter Story is as good as their product – the two are intertwined. 

Back in 2007 Pic discovered his favorite peanut butter was full of sugar.  He roasted some nuts, squashed them up and feed them to his 12 year old son (who now works there) and his friends.  One of them liked it so much they bought a jar.  Pic got into business initially with an adapted concrete mixer/roaster and selling his peanut butter down at the Nelson Farmers Market in Nelson New Zealand.  And well the rest is history. Fast forward to 2014 - he’s won awards and applauds for his simply “nothing but peanuts and salt” (or in the case of the unsalted varieties just peanuts) really good peanut butter. 

They use Australian nuts because they are the best in the world –hi-oleic peanuts from Queensland.  They ship them in, batch roast them under the watchful eye of Head Roaster Corey and squish them up into a glass jar.  Topped off with their iconic red star for Crunchy. Black star for Smooth.  All done and dusted, roasted, squished and jarred within an hour. 

This was so smooth and creamy and my kids loved it too!  Be sure to stir it when you get it, because the oil settles on the top.
