Celebrate Two of Our Favorite Tastes of New England

Hey friends and foodies!


Here in the Northeast, we’re closing out another summer month with a stretch of typical New England weather – it’s hot, it’s muggy, it’s almost August! We’re taking a bit of time (indoors, in the AC) to celebrate two of our favorite classic brands this week that can bring a taste of New England to anywhere in the country.

bar-harbor-new-england-clam-chowder-15-oz-8Whether you’re a fan of classic clam chowder, corn chowder, lobster bisque, or even clam juice, we carry a full line of Bar Harbor products for those who want an authentic, coastal Maine lunch, dinner, or starter. Bar Harbor creates its products in small batches as people on the Maine coast have for generations. It’s as close to fresh off the docks of Maine as you can get without being there.


peggy-lawton-variety-pack-12-2-oz-16If you’re finding yourself seafood-ed out, and you’re craving something sweet, we can help there as well! Take the time to refill those snack drawers with Peggy Lawton brownies and cookies. We have variety packs for someone who wants a little bit of everything or you can get a case of Oatmeal, Butter Crunch, or Shortbread cookies if you have a favorite and never want to run out. The variety pack combines the chocolaty goodness of Fudge Brownies and the Chunk Chocolate Cookies with the sweet tastes of Peggy’s Choco-Chip, Oatmeal, and Butter Crunch Cookies!

Stay cool!

Pick Up Something Sweet for Your Valentine


Hey friends and foodies,

We cannot believe how quickly this year is already going back…but here we are, stocking up on chocolates and cards for Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking to buy a uniquely New England gift for the special someone (or everyone!) in your life, we put together a little guide to help you narrow down the perfect gift for everyone.

If you’re planning on ordering some goodies for next week, please note the special shipping requirements section for ship days and delivery times for certain fresh baked and perishable items. Standard shipping not guaranteed to arrive by Valentine’s Day. You can use code CRUSH for 10% off your order this week.

For your co-workers:

Pick up a batch of Harvest Sweets candy to give to your office mates – the chocolate on the outside makes them decadent and sweet and the fruit inside makes us adults feel just a little less guilty about indulging! The Dark Chocolate Raspberry truffles are a fan favorite – and festive!

For your littlest Valentine’s lunch box:

You can pick up a  variety pack that includes Devil Dogs, Ring Dings, Coffee Cakes and Yodels so you can get everyone’s favorite in one pack.


For your hunny: 

If your special someone is a true New England fan, skip the box of chocolates and pair the bouquet of flowers with a variety pack of Peggy Lawton cookies or brownies. Grab the biggest pack (which includes Fudge Brownies and the Chunk Chocolate Cookies with the sweet tastes of Peggy’s Choco-Chip, Oatmeal, and Butter Crunch Cookies!) to have your sweets covered well after the last discounted candy has been removed the shelves.


Sending you a big virtual hug before the holiday!

Have a great week,

New England Game Day Favorites


CODE WINTERHere in New England, we’re not super stoked on football right now but that’s okay – it’s gray and chilly, it’s still football season, and we’ll still find an excuse to host some friends and family for game day.

Though our fandom may divide us, it is our hope that good food can unite us. This year, cook up something delicious and bring fans together! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Gold Medal NE Style Rolls_ORIG

First things first: Order hot dog rolls that are unique to New England! Put a distinctly New England spin on the hot dogs at your game day party with Gold Medal New England Style Hot Dog Rolls.



Kayem hot dogMost importantly, don’t forget the dogs! Boil or grill up hotdogs before the crowd arrives and keep warm in either a crockpot or warming tray. We especially love Kayem Hot Dogs and Franks!



new england party foodAdd a little variety (and New England flair) to your buffet with Gaspar’s Linguica, Chourico, and Kielbasa!  Each Portuguese sausage has a unique flavor!
