One of the nice things about having a blog with a decent sized readership is I can occasionally plug a product that I like and hope others buy it. If the product does well and gains distribution, then I don't have to go on a quest (in this case to the Cambridge St. Whole Foods to get it). Or at least they stay in business so I can order it off the web.
Plus, a great topic in entrepreneurship is new product marketing.
So onto the plug. Those of you who know me well know that I love pickles.
Well, I think I have found a truly world class jar with Root Cellar Preserves' Sweet and Spicy Pickle Mix. It's just the right amount of sweet. It's just the right amount of spicy. It's all-natural. I practically drank the brine. I'm actually saving it to dip cucumbers in later this week.
I tried to learn a bit more about Root Cellar and it turns out they are in Wellesley, MA where my family has owned a restaurant for 31 years and still live. And it's a double bottom line business, which is just great - half their profits go to preserve early American homesteads. I love this - I encourage you to support the brand. I don't think you will be disappointed.
Here's a full list of where you can get this amazing pickle mix. Going to make a run this weekend to pick up a few more of their products.
