Back-to-School Essentials (Lunchbox Edition)

_CODE_ backtoschool

Hey friends and Foodies!

We can’t even believe we are already talking back-to-school but here we are in the final stretch of August and that means pretty soon, parents are going to packing lunches and sending their kids back to school.

While we love summer, there’s something special about starting a new year, getting ready for growth, learning and new challenges.  Think back to your school days; you may have had Peggy Lawton Cookies or maybe Drakes Cakes stashed in your lunchbox. Reminisce in back to school nostalgia and relive those happy memories with your favorites. You can buy them for your own children or just stock your pantry with snacks for yourself. There is no age limit on delicious snacking! Shop our whole line of snacks and sweets here.

Snack like You’re at a New England Seafood Shack

Hey friends and foodies!


We’re excited to feature one of our all-time favorite summer items. It’s a New England classic, it’s delicious, and it instantly makes us reminisce on that sand still stuck in your toes, gloriously sleepy, sun-soaked, post-beach feeling we got when we’d stop for stuffies on the way home from a long day in the ocean.

whaler-seafood-spicy-stuffed-quahogs-12-pack-5Stuffies, otherwise known as stuffed quahogs, are the perfect blend of, you guessed it, stuffing and quahogs. Here in New England, because of our Portuguese roots, we also have ‘spicy’ stuffed quahogs that feature Portuguese bread and some spices that add an extra kick.

We’ve even heard from our non-seafood loving friends that stuffies on our their list of favorite summer foods as they usually don’t have quite the typical seafood bite as say fresh clams or fish. You can find our full line here.

We’re Officially in the (Hot) Dog Days of Summer

Hey friends and foodies!

Copy of CODE_ SUMMER2019We might not know where every one of customers spends their summer, but if you’ve been dealing with a heatwave as we have here in New England the past couple weeks…WE FEEL YOU and we feel, well, hot.

The last thing we want to think about is cooking inside, turning on ovens or stoves, moving more hot air around, roasting…It all just sounds exhausting. Instead, we’re embracing the heat and cooking up some of our summertime favorites. But outside, of course, where we might catch a rouge breeze or breath of air.

If you’ve taken to manning the grill, eating outside, sipping lemonade in any shade you can find, we hope you’ll try it one day with our Kayem Fenway Beef Franks. We know not everyone is a fan of Fenway but we are all fans of food so let’s get in on this together.


kayem-fenway-beef-franks-5-14-oz-packages-8Kayem only uses the very best cuts of beef and the right amount of spices that New Englanders love. Be sure to complete the look with our split top New England style hot dog buns and Cain’s condiments.

Stay cool, host a cookout, bring out the inflatable pool – the (hot) dog days of summer are here.



We’ll catch you next week!

Fill Your Summer Menu with All Things New England


Happy mid-July, friends and foodies!

It always seems like summer starts to slip by extra quick once the 4th is over, so we’re trying to soak in every minute we can here in the Northeast. That means we’re firing up the grills, stocking our fridges with New England favorites, and tasting summer the way it’s meant to be enjoyed – slowly and with the people who bring us joy!

If you’re looking to add a bit of New England to your summer menu without having to actually travel here, we have a few suggestions to get you started.

Start your morning with a big, cold glass of coffee milk – did you make a face not really knowing what that is? Don’t feel bad – it’s so ‘New England’ that most people in other states have no clue what it is, either. The best way to describe it is coffee syrup + milk + blended well and served cold. It’s amazing.

One of our all-time favorite beach snacks here on the East Coast is a good, old-fashioned, thick, peanut butter and fluff sandwich. It’s been around in New England for over 100 years for a good reason. Order Marshmallow Fluff here.

Or maybe you’re in the mood for clams, chowder, and seafood from the coast of Maine. We have pre-made chowders, stuffies, and crackers to compliment any dish.

We’d love to hear how you enjoy a bite of New England this summer, so share your favorite production with us on Facebook.


Happy eating!
