Sweets and a Garden

The Date: Tuesday, December 7
The Delivery: Candy from JJ's Sweets, and an UrBin Grower urban gardening kit from Nature's Footprint Inc
Staff Pick: JJ's Sweets hard candies and caramel

The DL: Some days, such as today, we have exciting shipments that include everything from an urban garden to vegan coconut milk caramel. While we can't wait to set up the garden on our new offices' patio, JJ's Sweets had us at caramel. We kind of have a thing for caramel, as evidenced in our current November+December Veggie Awards issue, which boasts a drool-worthy caramel feature including both sweet and savory recipes of the caramelized sugar kind. If only we could grow caramel in our UrBin Grower; all would be right in the world!

Cocomels are to die for! I've been a junkie ever since I discovered them. ;-)

Seriously, I LOVE those things. I live in Boulder and used to buy them at the farmers' market. Amazing!!!

Long live Cocomels, I love them (and I'm not even a sweets person). The Fleur de Sel and the chocolate covered ones are my favorites. I was so happy to get my hands on some in NYC.
