Look What Just Showed Up in Our Display Freezer!

It took a lot of convincing to get Dale to agree to purchase a display freezer for The Wine Country.  ("We're a wine store!")  My vision was to be able to offer last-minute shoppers some pop-in-the-oven appetizers and other treats.  But the real reason, and one my weight-conscious wife intuited, was to stock Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, which I'd first discovered back in 2011 at the San Francisco Fancy Food Show.

It took a lot of convincing to get Dale to agree to purchase a display freezer for The Wine Country.  ("We're a wine store!")  My vision was to be able to offer last-minute shoppers some pop-in-the-oven appetizers and other treats.  But the real reason, and one my weight-conscious wife intuited, was to stock Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, which I'd first discovered back in 2011 at the San Francisco Fancy Food Show.

 

Ever since Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams hit the scene in 2002, it has garnered huge press for its rich, perfectly crafted ice creams.  Jeni's sources its grass-fed milk from a 110 year old dairy in Orrville, Ohio and two other farms in lush Northeast Ohio. 

 

If there is a silkier, more beautifully balanced, more delicious ice cream in America, I've yet to find it.

 

We recently acquired some special flavors direct from the plant.

The Perfect Bite Company Gourmet Frozen Appetizers, Glendale, California

For years I had toyed with the idea of expanding our Gourmet Store into frozen gourmet foods.  I had an idea our customers might need some last-minute appetizers and party foods they could heat up in the oven or microwave.

 

I discovered the tasty morsels from The Perfect Bite Company about the same time I zeroed in on Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, about 2011 or 2012 at the San Francisco Fancy Food Show.  As soon as we acquired a display freezer, they were among the first items we offered.

 

Last week I drove the trusty company van to Perfect Bite's headquarters in Glendale and filled the back up with these tasty frozen appetizers.
