Find out for yourself which products caught our attention during the chilly month of November…
I knew the holiday season was officially here when the announcement of this flavorful launch rolled across my desk. Schuman Cheese rang in the holiday season with the release of a decadent treat crafted with award-winning, Italian-style, creamy Mascarpone cheese and wrapped in 100 percent pure, sustainably sourced chocolate. With four varieties that include fruit, caramel, and espresso, there’s something sweet in store for all of your shoppers.
Seltzer’s Smokehouse Meats brought this convenient new lineup to retail shelves in three coveted flavors: Original, Chipotle, and Double Smoked Sweet. The superior flavor of this tender jerky is achieved through a time-tested, three-day smoking process, achieving top quality in the form of a delicious, on-the-go snack.
TRUFF is once again delighting the everyday chef with its truffle-based portfolio, and this time the supplier has done so with its new Black Truffle Salt. TRUFF’s latest release features a delicate blend of fine and coarse sea salt and black truffles, bringing flavor and versatility to consumers’ kitchens in one single pinch.
Just in time for the holiday season, Olli Salumeria announced the nationwide launch of its new Olli Cornichons & Onions Antipasto Tray. Combining sliced, slow-cured Olli Hard Salami and Italian Dry Salami with cheddar cheese curds and pickled cornichons and onions, Olli’s expanded antipasto offerings appeal to the rising charcuterie trend while providing shoppers with an offering that is gluten-free, keto-friendly, and made from simple, natural ingredients.
Another holiday launch rounds out this list of top picks with a recent Carandini partnership. The producer teamed up with Veneto to release this enticing Panettone con Aceto Balsamico di Modena, a limited-edition product that merges two Italian culinary traditions to create a rich cake infused with sweet, balsamic cream filling made from Carandini’s signature Emilio Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI.
