Don’t Like Spring Cleaning? Try Spring Eating!

Cheese Tasting Winner: Martha Nelson
Spring is in the air. Not only can you feel it, but you can hear it too. Hear Spring? Sure! I call those bird noises sounds of Spring.

 

I suppose you can even smell Spring. You sure can in here. New essential oil diffuser blends for the season have arrived. Try Spring Breeze (Orange, Spearmint & Lemongrass), Spring Morning (Basil, Peppermint, & Lime), or Clean Kitchen (Lime, Lemon, Rosemary & Lavender).

 

If you can hear, feel and smell spring, you certainly can taste Spring too. Yes, yes. A food store is a great place to taste spring. Take these Gummi Carrots pictured here. Or how about Gummi Sugared Bunnies and Jelly Beans (Black, Assorted or Sour). As always, there’s much more to choose from. Stop in and peek.

Speaking of tasting, thanks to all who joined us for Cheese Tasting Day. Butter Cheese was voted the top favorite. Martha Nelson, on her first visit, won the pound of free cheese. Congratulations, Martha!! Cheddar Horseradish, Blueberry Cheddar, Green Onion, Muenster and Marble all came in as top favorites also.
