Here are a few honorable mentions that pleasantly surprised me when I gave them a whirl.
Farmhouse Culture Fine Fermented Foods: Fermented foods are becoming increasingly popular, with options such as kimchi and krauts. Farmhouse Culture has a variety of krauts, including ginger beet, horseradish leek and – my favorite – garlic dill pickle. Both the kimchi and krauts are packaged in BPA-free stand-up pouches with a specially patented vent to prevent the messy bubble-overs commonly seen in fermented foods.
And even more press after our trip down to Anaheim for Expo West 2014!
Specialty Foods shares their thoughts on kraut as a snack, and Access Hollywood confirms it: every studio lot in Burbank needs a 15# foodservice pail of Farmhouse Kraut!
