I should move there just so I can have fresh eggs in the morning. I haven't visited but it is on the list. I should some how figure out how to work out of our remote office there for a week.
The May Foodzie options were a tough pick. We had a outdoor grilling option, a brunch option, and the Portland box. There were several things in each box that Mr. J and I were eying but in the end Portland won out.
Starting with a local supply of all-natural, antibiotic-free pork, Elias Cairo and his team do everything by hand, from expertly butchering the pork to grinding spices in-house.
Marionberry Pate De Fruit
Willamette Valley Confectionery
A longtime French favorite, pate de fruit is a little jewel-like confection bursting with fruit. The deep dark purple color comes from the local marionberry, a sweeter, juicier version of the common blackberry.
Chocolate Coconut Cookie
Rich in decadent chocolate flavor with a generous amount of tender coconut, these raw, vegan cookies are made with all organic ingredients and dehydrated at 105, which keeps them soft and chewy.
Grown on a family farm in the Willamette Valley, these hearty, earthy nuts are packed with vitamin D, E, and K, and are roasted twice a week to ensure that each batch is super fresh.
Hot Lips Soda
First available only at their Hot Lips pizza joint in Portland, these sparkling juice sodas (where you can actually tastes the bursts of fresh fruit) now have quite the following.
Our favorites would have to be the soda and the hazelnuts. I don't even drink soda regularly and this made me weak in the knees. Before I knew it we had finished the bottle. They are so right when they say you can actually taste the berries. You truly can.
I had never had plain hazelnuts till this little package came along.I have been missing out. These had just the right amount of roasting and salt to complement the natural flavors. We might just have to count out the remaining nuts to split evenly between the two of us. It just makes things easier that way.
