Case in point: The Crispery’s addictively gooey, crispy rice treats, just like the ones we all loved as kids – only way better and in incredible flavors like marshmallow fluff topped with chocolate candy buttons and raspberry jelly & chocolate. Or Cookies & Cream, made with everyone’s favorite cookies crushed and sandwiched between rich marshmallow cream and topped with a cookie.  Or S’mores a toasted marshmallow delight with graham cracker in the middle and chocolate surrounded by marshmallow. Founded by a stay at home Mom in 1995, The Crispery now churns out a dizzying array of handmade crispycakes that have a serious cult following. For more than 20 years The Crispery has guaranteed the quality and freshness of all our treats. The Crispery’s reputation for quality, value and personal customer service has been unsurpassed. The popularity of CRISPYCAKES™ grew as a result of television appearances on Good Morning America, Today, Rachael Ray, and CBS This Morning, as well as articles in various print publications like Martha Stewart Weddings, Rachael Ray Everyday, Newsday, Specialty Food Magazine and more. Today you can find CRISPYCAKES™, selling in stores such as Dean and Deluca, HEB Supermarkets, Central Markets throughout Texas, Dylan’s Candy Bar- New York City’s largest candy store, and many more stores in New York, Miami, Texas, The Carolinas, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Canada and more! The Crispery is owned by Judy Soldinger. Judy operates the company along with her husband, a former Television Executive in Virginia. They are currently expanding the business across the country. So far, they have increased the production capacity and added many additional flavors. Some 20 years later, The Crispery is still handmaking these soft and gooey treats to perfection and inviting customers all over the country to indulge in treats that are even better than the freshly made ones that mom use to make, but still include her key ingredient, LOVE.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][mpc_grid_images preset="mpc_preset_3" images="15410" cols="1" gap="20" image_size="full" image_opacity="100" effect="none" image_hover_opacity="92"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Poppy Popcorn

[vc_row row_scroll_icon="no" content_width="grid"][vc_column width="1/2"][eltd_section_title title="Poppy Popcorn" title_color="" title_text_transform="" title_text_align="left" margin_bottom="" title_size=""][eltd_section_subtitle color="" text_align="left" text="Founded by Ginger Franks, Popped fresh in Asheville, NC" width=""][eltd_separator position="left" color="#ff7348" border_style="dashed" width="75" thickness="1" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1627623035586{padding-bottom: 50px !important;}"] Ginger Franks started Poppy for one simple reason: she wanted to be there for her kids’ school programs, baseball games and performances. In late 2014, armed with a hard work ethic and one popcorn machine, Ginger opened up shop. From the beginning she had a clear vision of what she wanted Poppy to be: simple, fun, well-designed, and of course, tasty, without the artificial ingredients found in other popcorn brands. Ginger always wanted to keep her business local, homegrown and fresh. Instead of outsourcing the production (as so many snack companies do), Poppy is still hand-crafted with love in Asheville, North Carolina. This ensures that every batch is as delicious as the popcorn made by Ginger when Poppy first opened its doors.

Haus

[vc_row row_scroll_icon="no" content_width="grid"][vc_column width="1/2"][eltd_section_title title="Haus" title_color="" title_text_transform="" title_text_align="left" margin_bottom="" title_size=""][eltd_section_subtitle color="" text_align="left" text="Co-founded by Helena Price Hambrecht, Expertly crafted in Sonoma County, CA" width=""][eltd_separator position="left" color="#ff7348" border_style="dashed" width="75" thickness="1" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][vc_column_text css=".vc_custom_1627622020283{padding-bottom: 50px !important;}"] It all started with alcohol, an industry that hasn’t evolved since prohibition. It’s still ruled by huge liquor companies that spend big to get their products on store shelves and in bars. And you’re stuck with their choices. Sketchy ingredients, too much alcohol, outdated aesthetics, and too many hangovers. Something needed to change, and the Haus team knew alcohol could be different. Like food, alcohol can come from organic farms, not factories. It can be created naturally with real fruits and botanicals, not artificial flavors. And it can be accessible. Haus is doing everything differently than corporate liquor - starting with ingredients. They source the highest quality fruits, herbs, and botanicals from trusted farmers and purveyors who supply Michelin-star restaurants. The Haus team blends every bottle at their warehouse in Sonoma County, and ships straight to you in packaging made from recycled materials. They include nutrition facts and complete ingredient lists for every product because Haus believes you deserve to know what’s in your glass. While newer to the States, apéritifs have been popular in Europe for centuries. They have the flavor complexity of a cocktail but are low enough in alcohol content (stronger than wine, lighter than whiskey) that you can enjoy them in a cocktail, without the consequences. Haus apéritifs take a modern approach, for something fresh, clean, and easy to drink.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_video link="https://vimeo.com/580825832"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][eltd_portfolio_list image_size="square" show_load_more="yes" columns="three" filter="yes" filter_order_by="count" show_excerpt="" order_by="menu_order" order="ASC" category="Haus"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Eastern Standard Provisions

This stemmed from their mutual love for pretzels, and a realization that finding a good soft pretzel on the market that lived up to their expectations was nearly impossible. So, they decided to make it themselves. Under the guidance of chief product officer and renowned baker, Lauren Moran, the Eastern Standard Provisions team started on their journey. After months of tasting, tweaking, and adjusting, they finally perfected their one-of-a-kind gourmet soft pretzel. Like any artisanal product, it takes time, effort, and unwavering commitment.  The Eastern Standard Provisions team landed on something to be truly proud of: a pretzel with the airy qualities of a brioche on the inside and a traditional Bavarian-style crust on the outside.  We promise you that these pretzels will have you coming back for seconds and thirds.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_video link="https://vimeo.com/580959135"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][eltd_portfolio_list image_size="square" show_load_more="yes" columns="three" filter="yes" filter_order_by="count" show_excerpt="" order_by="menu_order" order="ASC" category="Eastern Standard Provisions"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Her parents had other plans, though- and chose to steer her from the toy shop, back home to the warmth of their own kitchen. It was there she climbed up on a stool alongside her father and learned to bake in the real thing. For decades, she has been satisfying the sweet teeth of her husband, sons, and flocks of friends with her perfectly balanced, crisp- yet chewy cookies. Coming from a family of driven entrepreneurs – her grandparents founded an insurance company in the middle of the Great Depression – Katherine was inspired to transform her hobby into her own specialty food company. With Grey Ghost Bakery, Katherine is serving up a taste of her childhood with a good old-fashioned dose of Lowcountry ghost lore.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_video link="https://vimeo.com/552601594"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][eltd_portfolio_list image_size="square" show_load_more="yes" columns="three" filter="yes" filter_order_by="count" show_excerpt="" order_by="menu_order" order="ASC" category="Grey Ghost Bakery"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
