Straight From Our Mouths: 8 Standout Staff Picks

Here are a few of the indie goodies that our team has been obsessing over this summer!

DANI, DESIGN TEAM: BLUEBERRY POPPED TART

“A much more acceptable (and tasty) option when I crave a toaster pastry. And I’ve got a lot of cravings lately (yep, that kind) so I try to keep a few in my bag, just in case.” 

BRENT, TECH TEAM: BLUEBERRY VANILLA ENERGY BAR

“I’m a big fan! I can be pretty bad about forgetting to eat, so meal replacement bars are a godsend, and it’s probably the best-tasting energy bar I’ve ever had.”

ANTHONY, OPERATIONS TEAM: VEGAN MARSHMALLOWS

“Animal-friendly marshmallows are not easy to find! Perfect for making vegan s’mores – at the fire pit, even the meat Mouths love ’em. And they make a great snack when smashed into a peanut butter sandwich.” 

JEFF, SPIRITS + WINE TEAM: GRÜNER VELTLINER

“The perfect summer wine and a food-friendly badass! Its medium body and bright acidity pairs with almost any meal, but especially shines with grilled asparagus and cold poached salmon. And it’s from Washington State, not Austria.”

SOPHIE, CUSTOMER HAPPINESS TEAM: DARK CHOCOLATE + TOFFEE PISTACHIOS

"I love everything with pistachios. These are no exception. The chocolate-y, toffee goodness satisfies my sweet craving one morsel at a time."

MOLLY, HAPPINESS GURU: MOLE POBLANO SAUCE

"I’ll find any excuse to try a restaurant that has chicken mole on the menu. Now I’ve got a mole poblano sauce at home that gives the New York dining scene a run for its money? I may never leave home again."

MIRANDA, INTERN: BOURBON SMOKED SEA SALT

"This smoky sea salt is summer in a tin. It’s not just an amazing rub for grilled meats, it’s my favorite rimming salt for a Bloody Mary. It's also a great way to add a hint of smoky, grilled flavor to some freshly picked corn."

MARIANNE, MARKETING TEAM: PICKLED WATERMELON

“The end of summer means saying goodbye to my favorite fruit: watermelon. Luckily, these jars pack the same sunny sweetness as the real deal. And the cinnamon-spiced brine adds a layer of cozy fall flavor.”

Gulp, fall?
