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!

Take yourself to a New England seafood shack with our famous Gold Medal split-top buns.

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!
