New Products 11/21/17 (Vermont)

Citrus fruits, pungent cheeses, chocolate treats and seasonal scents… these are just some of our new offerings to make your holidays especially festive. While shopping ramps up, be sure to explore these products to inspire your celebrations. Oh, and don’t forget to stop into our Wellness Department for new supplements to help maintain your state of Zen during this busy time of year.


Produce

Organic Satsuma Mandarins- Fantastically sweet and juicy, these seedless little citruses are a perennial staff favorite.  They are easy to peel with a lovely soft flesh. For maximum enjoyment, be sure to choose citrus that is heavy for its size and has a firm, shiny skin – though it’s okay if it is a little green!

Buck Brand Centennial Heirloom Kumquats- Whew! This is an exceptionally large kumquat, with a green and yellow streaked rind.  Kumquats are usually eaten whole – any fan can tell you the juice is tart, the skin is sweet, and not to mind the seeds!  This California grower is known for specializing in “heirloom” citrus varieties, growing them specifically for their exceptional flavor.

Fuyu Persimmons-  This type of persimmon is sweet and firm, with a pleasant crunchy texture and a hint of astringency.  Unlike a Hachiya persimmon, which is only palatable when completely soft, a Fuyu persimmon can be eaten more like an apple.  It will hold its shape in baked goods (persimmon upside down cake, anyone?)


Grocery

Tumbador- Yeah, we know, chocolate peanut butter cups are one of the most delicious things on earth. Tumbador brings them together in a whole new, organic way… look for the square!  Comes in Milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate.

Earth Circle Organics- Ready to do some holiday baking? Try swapping out cane sugar for coconut sugar for less sweetness and more flavor. Available in bulk.

Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day- These seasonal scented dish soaps, hand soaps, and all-purpose cleaners make tidying up oh-so pleasant with their delightful aromas. So turn on that holiday music and spruce up your home! Try the  Iowa Pine, Orange Clove, and Peppermint.
