Happy Mother’s Day! Plus New Tea Varieties, Eichten’s Cheese, and New Snack Mixes!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I love my mom. She’s kind and resourceful and goofy and thinks I’m the coolest person in the world. But I’m not. She is. I mean, check her out! She’s super cool. (P.S. How about those awesome matching outfits she made? So groovy.) We’ll be closed today (Sunday) so I can hang out with her in Lakeside.

Brian’s Mom was pretty cool too. The photo below was taken somewhere on Route 66. Like her son, she loved cool cars and had a very quick wit.

To all the moms out there, we hope you have a day filled with love and fun.

And now for this week’s “Milk & More”…

Cotton Candy Milk

Saturday our pal Mike from Coffee Pot Farms downed an entire bottle of Cotton Candy Milk in the store and said it was the best thing he’d tasted in a long time. He left the MPM sporting a blue mustache. This crazy blue concoction is available again this week!

On the Healthier Side…

At the opposite end of the spectrum from Cotton Candy Milk, we now have in stock two varieties of unsweetened iced teas from Nu Tea: Rehydrate Tea and Skinny Tea. Both are herby-tasting and refreshing without even a hint of sweetness—perfect on a hot day when you don’t want something sugary.

Nu Tea - Rehydrate

Also in the beverage realm, Pure Wild honey and agave-sweetened teas with the added benefit of collagen in three varieties: Lime Agave GinsengMango Turmeric, and Blueberry Holy Basil. If you’d like to try either the Nu Tea or Pure Wild before you buy, come in and I’ll pour you a sample.

Back in stock, Eichten’s cheese! We really loved our first round of cheese from Eichten’s family farms, so ordered  all three varieties again: their award-winning Tilsit cheese, the Tomato Basil Gouda, and my favorite, the Cranberry Chipotle Gouda. Every refrigerator should be stocked with this incredible cheese.

For the ultimate Chef Salad, toss some hunks of Eichten’s cheese, chopped Beeler’s ham steak, and Coffee Pot Farms lettuce and hard-boiled eggs. Perfection!

Speaking of Coffee Pot Farms…

Let us know what you want and we will get it for you and either deliver or hold until you can pick it up. I’m waiting to hear the varieties and price on the lettuce, so simply reply to this email or mention in the message box or order form that you would like Coffee Pot Farms produce.

Bouchée Snack Mix

Always on the hunt for a healthy yet delicious snack, we came across Becca’s Petites—a granola-like mix with nuts and coconut flakes and seasonings. They come in two sweet varieties-Original and Chocolate Noir, and two savory varieties—the smoky Savoureux and the spicy Flambeaux (Brian’s favorite!).
