SACRAMENTO, CA
Friday, May 26th, 2023

Bookended by Mother’s Day and Memorial Day, May starts the summer holiday season, stirring up excitement. Keeping the eagerness going, some stand-out offerings caught my eye this month, shaking up my grocery list and providing excellent celebratory eating options.

Local Bounti Grab and Go Salad Kits

Fresh. Tasty. Convenient. These three attributes are all I need to be convinced to add a product to my basket, and these chef-inspired salad kits hit the mark. The Modern Greek variety especially stood out as I have been chasing the authentic flavors I experienced on my trip to the country last summer, and this option comes pretty close to the real thing.

At the IDDBA trade show, Local Bounti will be spotlighting its Grab and Go Salad Kits, offered in the Poppy Power and Modern Greek varieties

North Country Smokehouse Smoked Strips

Um, bacon. Need I say more? Oh yeah, thick-cut bacon, to be exact. While I never need a reason to add the pork offering to my cart, North Country Smokehouse has made it even more enticing as it is non-GMO and Certified Humane Raised and Handled and Global Animal Partnership program standards.

North Country Smokehouse newest smoked strips, made from high-quality pork carefully selected and smoked with natural hardwood, will be featured in The Fresh Market’s stores

Rogue Creamery Bluehorn Blue Cheese

I’ll admit it right here, right now: I’m a total sucker for blue cheese. And Rogue Creamery’s seasonal Bluehorn Blue does not disappoint. From its breathtaking coloring to its rich yet nuanced flavors, my mouth was watering before I took my first bite. I foresee many blue cheese-based snacking and meal options in my future.

Rogue Creamery has announced a limited release of one of its most distinctive cheeses: Bluehorn Blue

The Ambriola Company’s Crema di Spicy Cheddar

While we are already on the topic of cheese, I would be remiss to talk about this unique item. This offering is part of the dairy provider’s more extensive lineup of cremas but has a spicy kick that makes it stand out. Although I am an adult, I eat grilled cheese at least three times a week, and this Crema di Spicy Cheddar is perfect for bringing some flair to the traditional sandwich.

At this year’s IDDBA trade show, The Ambriola Company will be highlighting its Auricchio Crema ai Quattro Formaggi, Ambriola Crema di Brie, Crema di Spicy Cheddar, and Crema di Greek Feta DOP

La Terra Fina Chocolate with Chocolate Chips Dessert

You can’t properly end a meal without a little sweet treat, and this easy flavor option is ideal for days when you don’t have the energy to whip up a whole dessert. Grab some fruit, graham crackers, marshmallows, or any snack of your choosing, and indulge in this delicious dip. You might even catch me hiding behind the fridge door sneaking a bite before lunch; it's that good!

La Terra Fina recently announced the addition of four unique new dip flavors to its portfolio


As you have read, I have to go because I have some serious snacking to do, but Deli Market News will be back next month with our June Picks.
