Christmas Foodie Finds

by HEAB on January 8, 2012

While in Arizona, Alice, my mother-in-law, gave us some really cool locally made foodie gifts for Christmas.  Since our suitcases were packed to the brim, Alice was kind enough to ship our Christmas gifts back  to Nashville.  They arrived last night, and I can’t wait to try them.

From the Tucson Farmer’s market, CD received a jar of Bacon Jam.

Check out the ingredients: Bacon, maple syrup, sugar, coffee, onions, garlic, and spices.  Intriguing, no?  Can’t wait to try it on some homemade sourdough!

Also from the farmer’s market, these Hiker Biker Bars.

Can’t beat the ingredients, and I love the flavor combinations.

Next up, Mexican drinking chocolate sticks from XOCOATL.

Each stick contains cacao, cane sugar, cinnamon, almonds, and spices. To prepare the drinking chocolate, you simply melt one stick in a cup of milk.  I’m most excited about this one!

And last but not least, we got some Justin’s almond butter.  Justin’s isn’t local to Arizona (made in Colorado), but you can never go wrong when giving me Justin’s. Thanks again Alice!

Have you ever tried any of the above foods?
