Sweet and spicy and everything nicey...

We are serving up our sweet and spicy to the good folks in Dallas/Addison at the Colonnade today and tomorrow.   It's a foodie party at our booths.  Sample some goodness and shop for holiday gifts.  So much fun meeting and greeting and making new pickle peeps!  We are also at Brinker Foods today.  The holidays are a perfect time to share our love for food!  For us it comes in the form of our sweet and spicy Original pickles and Tomato jam.  Those are usually LOVE at first bite...

But for others... It's the Apple Bourban Cinnamon or Tipsy Cranberry Orange jams...that really makes their holiday.  But we never know.... from our Bread and Butter chunks to our Lemon Pear Vanilla Bean and our Orangey Fig jam --- our customers' palate is as wide as the day is long!

If you are in our neighborhood this week, stop by and say "hey" and if not... drop by online we're getting ready for the holidays in a pickle style... It's cyber shop all week long!
Whether it's cyber or real time... Remember, life's greatest moments start IN A PICKLE!
