Petit Amuse - September Goodies

Look at what I got yesterday! My first Petit Amuse subscription sample box. Check them out: Petit Amuse! Seriously. I am enamoured.

They offer gourmet and specialty food sample boxes to introduce consumers to small food producers, helping them compete with the larger, mass-producing companies. The sample boxes are a wonderful way to try new products without spending a lot.

I already love this subscription. And the box only lasted for about ten minutes. As soon as I cut through the tape, Mann hands were grabbing and the great barter began. "I'll trade you this for that!" What is it? "I dunno. Wanna trade?"

Here's what we tried...and the great new producers I've discovered...

CC Made, Pistachio Nut Popcorn

Cassandra Chen used to be a currency trader. Then she swapped the trading floor for a kitchen. Now she's known for her trademark caramels and popcorn.

Effie's Homemade, Oatcakes

These are made by Joan MacIsaac and Irene Costello who have been working together for more than three decades. They make award-winning, all-natural baked goods.

p.o.p. candy, Thyme, Walnut & Cherries Toffee + Pop Mix Toffee

Bill Waiste & Rachel Flores started out cooking gluten-free toffee as holiday gifts. Then they started selling their treats at farmers' markets and, now, with Petit Amuse.

Vermont Peanut Butter, Maple Walnut Peanut Butter

Following Hurricane Irene in August 2011, Vermont Peanut Butter almost went out of business. But they are back to creating their locally-sourced peanut butter.

Daily De-List, Peanut Butter Coconut Crisp Granola

Molly Dawson is an amazing baker with a simple secret to making delicious granola. Just say 'no' to preservatives, corn syrup, and hydrogenated oil. And say 'yes' to organic, natural ingredients!

I cannot wait till next month!!
