From the wonderfully crafty Erika Kerekes, its Not Ketchup. I have only tried the cherry chipotle so far. It is an explosion of flavor and will pep up the blandest of foods. It is perfect for dipping fries or chicken nuggests in. This ketchup is made from only the ripest fruits and has no artificial preservatives . It comes in this gourmet pack of four flavors cherry chipotle, blueberry white pepper, smoky date , and spiced fig. You can get them at http://www.NotKetchup.com
1-800 Baskets has everything you need for that special someone for Christmas, Hanukkah, new job, birth, any thing that requires a celebration. We got a really cute package called the” nice and naughty.” It is perfect for those office workers because it contains two gourmet chocolate covered pretzels that are sprinkled with confetti .

FTD is a name that brings back sweet memories for me for the holidays. With two brothers that couldn’t always make it home, they would send their mother a lovely centerpiece made up by FTD for her table. Today, FTD has some yummy surprises for your friends and family. They have several options and the best part is that you can go online or into any FTD store to pick one up . How is that for convenient? Here are some yummy strawberries and snowman cupcakes just right for that dinner on Christmas or Christmas Eve.
Its no secret how much I love my popcorn. I especially like to eat it when I am drinking wine and watching my show like any good gladiator does. Here is a popcorn out of Atlanta called Caja Popcorn. I like it because along with the caramel corn , cheese mix we have here in Chicago, there are exotic flavors like strawberry, jalapeno , and BBQ. For the discriminating popcorn eater , its Caja.
Here is something that screams fancy and posh. These blooms are actually in a jar from the Wild Hibiscus Flowers and Rose Syrup. See how decadent they look in a flute of champagne. They add that special touch to any occasion and are perfect for weddings.wildhibiscus.com
Our final selection is from the folks at Honey Ridge Farms. It is a sweet balsamic honey. Perfect for drizzling over fruits and vegetables. It will actually get people to eat their spinach as I was very happy to find out . From Honey Ridge Farms
