- Nurishh Chive & Onion Animal Free Cream Cheese Spread
This is probably the best vegan cream cheese I have ever had. It’s one of the rare vegan cream cheese brands that doesn’t taste like solidified coconut oil. The onion flavor is strong and authentic. I would happily ditch normal cream cheese for this Nurishh plant-based version
- Niman Ranch Fat Tire Beer Bratwurst
We loved these juicy, flavorful bratwurst. They’re plump and have a great snap. Toss them in your cart for an easy summer meal—they’ll be perfect on the grill.
- Great Value Root Beer
I cannot believe I’m saying this, but Walmart’s brand of root beer is phenomenal. Great Value root beer is one of the best standard root beers I’ve ever tasted. I would love to drink this out of a frosted mug or use it to make a root beer float. Trust me and go buy this root beer!
- Laura Chenel Fresh Mango Habanero Goat Cheese
This goat cheese is a dream come true. It’s sweet, spicy, and creamy. It would be wonderful on a cheese board with some tart green apple and toasted pistachios. This mango habanero goat cheese would make a killer sandwich with caramelized red onions and sliced pork loin. Stuffing a chicken breast with this stuff would also be a great idea. Should I be on Top Chef?
- Wendy’s Chili
I know! I know! Before you scream at me in the comments: Wendy’s canned chili is good! I don’t want to hear from you until you’ve tasted it. It’s savory, salty, and a little sweet. It has big chunks of tomatoes and perfectly cooked beans. It’s super meaty. It’s what you want from canned chili. This would be great on its own, served over a baked potato, or cooked up with a block of Velveeta to make a tasty dip. Love you, Wendy’s!
