Did I mention toffee is naturally free of gluten??

I’ve highlighted some fan favorites and a seasonal specialty below – and please allow me to request a sample for you if it is befitting for your upcoming editorial. Thank you!!

CELEBRATED ON FORBES, TODAY, GOOD MORNING AMERICA, CHOPPED AND MORE, DAVE’S SWEET TOOTH IS TENACIOUS ABOUT THEIR TOFFEE:

MILK CHOCOLATE: The OG of this toffee family, sink your teeth into light, buttery, almond toffee, layered between a perfectly balanced coating of rich milk chocolate and crushed almonds.

Dave Chmielewski, a retired Detroit Fire Fighter had always loved to cook and bake. Feeding the firehouse perfected his skills, and when he started making his toffee, the response was unlike anything he had ever seen. Dave’s son, Andrew, recognized the perfect storm and in 2011, decided to take the homemade heavenly treat out of his mother’s kitchen and share it with the world!

The Best Thing to
Put on Sliced Bread

Polaner® Fruit & Maple Premium Fruit Spread
Maple Syrup Sweetened Fruit Spread Taps into Alternative Sweetener Trend

Polaner, a leading national brand of fruit spreads, jams and jellies since the late 1800s, is excited to announce Polaner Fruit & Maple premium fruit spread is now available for purchase in key markets. This unique product is sweetened with golden delicate Maple Grove Farms® pure maple syrup and is available in four luscious flavors: Strawberry, Raspberry, Peach and Blueberry.

Polaner Fruit & Maple pairs the fresh taste of fruit with the delicate sweetness of pure maple syrup and each variety contains four ingredients or less (except for Peach, which has five ingredients), the first two of which are fruit and pure maple syrup. Polaner Fruit & Maple has no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors and no artificial colors. This premium line of fruit and maple spreads is also gluten free and kosher. It is available in eight ounce jars at a suggested retail price of $3.99.

This innovative new product converges on two major food trends generating consumer demand.

First, Polaner Fruit & Maple uses golden delicate pure maple syrup as an alternative to cane sugar and artificial sweeteners, and is on trend with the alternative sweetener movement that has grown 200 percent in the past four years. Second, there is a significant growth trend in pure maple syrup consumption not only due to flavor preference, but also for its budding use in recipes both at home and in restaurants. By using maple syrup as a sweetener, Polaner Fruit & Maple imparts a subtle, more balanced and gentler flavor than if sweetened with traditional cane sugar.

Polaner Fruit & Maple is versatile as it perfectly complements recipes for appetizers, protein‐based main dishes, side dishes, baking and cocktails in addition to its traditional usage at breakfast. Polaner Fruit & Maple premium fruit spread is currently available in stores across the Northeast and will be available soon in the Central Midwest and Pacific Northwest. To find stores carrying Polaner Fruit & Maple premium fruit spread, visit www.polanerspreads.com/where-to-buy/ Orders can easily be placed at the Maple Grove Farms® gift shop by calling 1‐800‐525‐2540 ext. 5547.

Every bag you use is highly durable–puncture resistant and moisture repellant–making Smelly Proof Bags reusable and helping you save money.

Consumers can use our smell proof bags in many different applications – from storing food products that produce strong odors - onions, anyone? – to sealing dirty gym clothes away and keeping their odors at bay in a sealed odor proof bag for transport so that you can wash them. In that sort of situation, use of a Smelly Proof Bag may even help you to prolong the time between washes of your gym bag itself – because the less-than-pleasant smells of sweat and body odor have been trapped inside a durable, reusable Smelly Proof Bag, and they haven’t come into contact with the inside surfaces of your tote bag.

You can even use this bag for camping, holding worms and bait for a fishing trip (or the fish that you’ve caught on that trip) or to seal up the remnants of tobacco use. Our odor bags are suitable for use with food products, but you can use these bags in many different activities – probably almost anything you can think of.

Smelly Proof Bags come in a wide variety of sizes, so there’s no problem that’s too big or too small; whether it’s a rotten egg, pet snacks or even a collection of stinky diapers, let our smell proof bags whisk these odors away. Available sizes range from 2” by 3”, 6” by 4”, 7.5” by 6.5”, all the way to our oven bags , which measure 23” by 18”. These bags are available in boxes of 10, 25, and for the extra small bags, even quantities of 100. The last thing we’d want is for you to reach for an odor proof bag and realize that you’ve run out!

Make sure you’re using the best smell proof bag out there, and give your nose a hand with Smelly Proof Bags. smellyproof.com

Discovering that two of her 4 children at a young age were diagnosed with severe food allergies, founder Lisa Ragan’s entire life changed. Not only did her children’s diets need to be different, but so did her own. She quickly became a pro at learning what foods could replace allergy laden ones, and still taste good. As a devoted mother who wanted her children to feel included in social settings with their food allergies, it soon became her mission to create snacks that looked and tasted similar to what their friends were eating, but still safe from all the food allergens they needed to avoid.
