No fire, no electricity, with only one bottle of water, enjoy hot food with your self-heating lunchboxes!
A caffeinated trail mix. It comes in three flavors, Mocha, Traditional Coffee, and Matcha.
Yaupon is the only richly caffeinated plant in North America. Through brewing the plant as a tea, Evergreen Tea plans to provide the Greater Seattle area with an easily accessible local product that tastes delicious and has deep roots in American history.
The Dough Boys
The Dough Boys have created a product that will safely cure any cookie dough fans cravings. We developed two incredibly delicious edible cookie dough recipes constructed in a unique process that begins with omitting eggs from the recipe and further involves heat treating flour. Our dough is never meant to be baked, rather devoured straight from the container.
Revitabite is a vitamin infused protein snack, that satisfies your daily vitamin needs in one tasty bite.
Costello Caramel is a 5th generation homemade caramel sauce! Our caramel comes in two flavors: original and burnt caramel. Costello Caramel is a perfect treat to use on all your favorite desserts and makes for a great gift over the holiday season!
Afterglow Sparkling is a handcrafted sparkling drink full of probiotics that refreshes the mind, body and soul with all the delicious flavor of a soda but only a fraction of the sugar.
Our product is a stevia simple syrup that provides a natural way to sweeten your drinks without added calories. Unlike other no-calorie sweeteners, Delica is made from the stevia plant and has no artificial chemicals or additives, truly making it sweetness you can trust.
