Got a great new food find to share? (I do)

i am not nearly as adventurous with my money as i am. or would like to be, with my food forays. there are so many tantalizing food products on market shelves, and i often feel bombarded and overwhelmed by the choices available. i want to try all of them!! but my choices are severely limited by my purse strings. :( dc is a place where new food experiences can be explored and indulged freely, and with much of the guesswork and expense significantly reduced. one of my recent snack discoveries is snack factory's pretzel crisps (omg good!) i'm also pretty head over heels about ben and jerry's newest ice cream flavor--late night snacks (as in jimmy fallon). it's vanilla with caramel swirls and chocolate coated potato chip clusters!--yeah, i know....what've you got?

I just discovered Oysters (raw) or cooked in champagne they are heaven. My daughter and DH plus the grand kids all looked like they wanted to gag but boy I didn't have that problem. I was bring em on YUM and another new discovery was grilled artichokes brushed with something tart and evoo and garlic. Both I will have again.

Not totally new, but relatively new to me is Starbuck's Ice Cream - It's delicious!
My favorite flavors are their Java Chip Frappuccino, Coffee, Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, and Caramel Macchiato.

Chocolate Ice Cream made with coconut milk! This is amazing stuff. I found the recipe while desperately trying to find a frozen treat that DH could have that doesn't have dairy, soy, gluten or casein in it. Very simple and delicious!!!!

Coconut water. Better than Gatorade for hydration and electrolytes.

I acquired a dozen bare rooted plants from our local CSA organization, ate six and planted the remaining six. Hope I can harvest seeds to grow enough for ourselves as well as our whitetails.
