The Girlfriend’s Gift Guide

Syndicated gift & food writer/reporter Bev Bennett has written a piece about ‘Best Friend Holiday Gift Giving’ – we love the concept! We’re equally flattered to have our Yuzu products mentioned in the mix:

An exotic new flavor of soap
Yuzu, a distinctive and refreshing Asian citrus fruit, was first introduced into food condiments. Now the same addictive accent is working its way into body products. Solessence Yuzu Gold soap and body scrub are the essence of pampering. The products, priced $8 and up, are available in some Whole Foods stores or online at

Hand & Body Butter pictured

Special touch: a thick washcloth or set of washcloths. Or look for yuzu vinegar and other products in gourmet or natural food stores to tuck into the package.

Amy’s: Dressed in Pink

Voted ‘Best Caramel Apples’ by the Wall Street Journal, Amy’s Candy Kitchen features the biggest, crunchiest, most beautifully dipped and dressed apples I’ve ever seen on any continent. And it is a local delicacy – right in Cedarburg, Wisconsin.

The first time I laid eyes on Amy’s, I was touring the quaint little town which reminds me so much of my former place of residence in Healdsburg, California. The charming shops & homes, greenery, and river running through it just brings me back every time. Amy’s fits in as one of the old time candy stores, with a gourmet twist. It delights every sense – but what really amazes are the apples. Big. Bold. Dipped.

I’d never been a huge caramel apple fan, as they tend to disappoint. If the wrong type apples are used, or they are beyond prime and you get a mushy mess, or the caramel is too thin – meh. It just isn’t worth the trouble. But Amy’s…oh! Just looking at them was satisfaction enough. What about the taste? Two thumbs up! Now, I only associate caramel apples with Amy’s.

It doesn’t stop at caramel. Amy’s has apples dipped in chocolate, nuts, and has an assortment of other beautiful creations. This month they are featuring lovely beribboned ‘Dressed in Pink’ apples for Breast Cancer Awareness. In 3 different varieties – dark Belgian chocolate, pink sprinkles or M&Ms. One is surely to delight the senses. And they ship!

Update: Kroegers Campell campaign (Drink Pink)

Regarding my Campbell pink label campaign post, Anon had wondered if Fred Meyer or QFC might be participating, as they are under the same corp umbrella.

Good news! Turns out QFC is hosting a number of pink ribbon food items that are all slated to have a % of the purchase donated, as well as running the Campbell’s Soup campaign as well. No update on Fred Meyer…
