Famous Foods February Flash Sale


Hey friends and foodies!

We’re rounding out the month of February in true New England fashion this weekend – we’re starting off with some snow, some rain, some sleet, some wind, and then headed back into cold temps before marching into a new month. We’re still clearly not out of winter’s grasp yet, so we’re hunkered down enjoying some of our favorite cold-weather comfort food. We’ve got the crockpots on, logs in the fireplace, and books we’re ready to read as we enjoy this final weekend of February.

This weekend, we’re offering a February Flash Sale where you can take 15% off any order of $30 or more (code: FEBFLASH) – this is a great way to stock up on some pantry essentials!

Here are some items on our winter menu this weekend:


Bar Harbor New England Clam Chowder

Bar Harbor Clam Chowder is made in small batches like people on the Maine coast have been doing for generations. It’s loaded with juicy clams and simple, all-natural ingredients.  It’s as close to fresh off the docks of Maine as you can get without being here.


bell-s-meatloaf-mix-3-oz-22Bell’s Meatloaf Mix 

Bell’s Meatloaf Mix has been a family favorite for over 40 years. This new, more flavorful recipe goes back to its roots and the original formula while delivering the quality you’ve come to expect from Bell’s.  Made with genuine Bell’s Seasoning.


portuguese-sweetbread-13-oz-19Amaral’s Portuguese Sweetbread

Many people will cut it into slices and eat without added butter or jams; you just don’t need it with this sweetbread! Toast it in the morning to get your day started or serve with dinner.



Keep in mind – the 15% off discount code is only for orders of $30 or more and valid from Saturday, Feb. 26. – Monday, Feb. 28th.

Stay cozy!

Copy of code_ turkey

Hey friends and foodies!

We hope you had a FANG-tastic Halloween and are looking forward to all the holidays coming up that will bring your family and friends together around the table to celebrate and enjoy each other’s company.

We are already in full Thanksgiving mode here at FamousFoods and this week we wanted to highlight one of our favorite and most versatile items: Heritage Mik Lunch Crackers. Not only are they perfect for your breakfast or mid-day snack, Milk Crackers are used in one of our favorite stuffing recipes.

Here is our tried-and-true stuffing recipe using Milk Crackers:


1.5 (16 ounce) boxes of Heritage Mill’s Milk Crackers
1 pound pork sausage
1 large onion, finely chopped
5 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
3 eggs, beaten
3 cups hot milk
Salt and pepper to taste

In a food processor, grind the milk crackers into crumbs. Place in a large bowl.
Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown.
Drain, reserving liquid, and mix into the bowl with cracker crumbs.  In a medium saucepan over medium heat, slowly cook and stir the onion and celery in 3 tablespoons of the reserved sausage liquid until soft. Mix the onion and celery into the cracker crumb and sausage mixture. Mix in the poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, eggs, and milk. Chill in the refrigerator approximately 1 hour before stuffing the turkey.

You can find a printable version here.

This week, we have two chances to save. You can use code GOBBLE for $5 orders of $30 or more and code STUFFING for $10 orders of $50 or more.
