Anyone who has been considering using the Relay Foods $30 off of $50 first time user promotion should do it right now, since the deal (based on an email they just sent to my personal account) is going down to $20 off of $60 on March 18th (which is still a great deal). My $30 off of $50 code is https://www.relayfoods.com/friend/JXDVAG (or click on the above ad). (Editor’s Note: It is now $20 off of $60 so I am updating the above ad.)
I’ve been getting a lot of groceries lately from Relay Foods lately, so here are some of my current top picks from their lineup:
Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars are whole wheat versions of Fig Newtons are come in various flavors. I like the fact that they are whole wheat and in packages of two cookies for a healthy snack on the go. My favorites flavors are the blueberry, raspberry, original, and peach/apricot. I’m not a fan of the strawberry.
Ninth Street (out of NC) makes Chocolate Babka. I’d prefer it doesn’t come frozen (because I have to defrost it to slice and toast it), but it is a good product. Keep in mind that it ca be difficult to slice, isn’t overly sweet, and should be toasted.
Pretzilla Soft Pretzel Sausage Buns & Soft Pretzel Hamburger Buns. They arrive frozen. The hamburger buns they are already sliced but the sausage rolls are not.
Hex’s Sea Kraut and Farmstead Ferments’ Classic Kraut are both good and local. Farmhouse Culture’s Organic Jalapeno Kraut is my favorite of the three, and is organic, but not local. (The other two are not organic.) Hex is a regular at the Silver Spring Farmer’s Market (and even sells kombucha there).
I’m always a fan of Hudson Henry’s granola, which comes in three flavors (Pecan, Cashew, or Walnut) and is local. People go crazy for this product. This is my favorite granola right now!
Asmar’s Baba Ganouj (out of Alexandria, VA) is a good product as well. It’s he best Baba I’ve found outside Middle Eastern Restaurants, although the texture is a little different.
Escazu and Salazon are good options for local chocolate. The Escazu Dark Chocoloate Pumpkin Seeds & Guajillo, and the the Salazon Dark Chocolate Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel are my favorites of these products.
Eden Brown Mustard with Apple Cider Vinegar is stone ground, organic, and a great product.
