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.

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!

Welcome in the Spring with Some of Our Favorites

FAMOUS FOODS

Happy Spring, Foodies!

We want to help you revamp your breakfast routine to make your sunny Spring mornings even brighter by adding a delicious, New England-inspired breakfast to your day. Here’s how you can make a delicious Portuguese breakfast sandwich using the finest chourico patties from Gaspar’s! It’s easy and delicious – even for the pickiest little eaters in the house. First, fry the chourico on both sides and remove from heat. Then lower the heat and fry up an egg to your liking using salt and pepper for taste. While that is cooking pop an Amaral’s Bolos Levedos Portuguese Muffin in the toaster. If you’d like to add cheese to your egg. Once the muffin is heated build your breakfast sandwich with the chourico patty and egg! Some people like dipping it in hot sauce or ketchup.

This week only, save 15% on your order by entering SPRING at checkout.
