Sriracha sauce goes upscale with a twist. Sosu Sauces brings their Barrel-Aged Sriracha Sauce ($25) to the masses. It’s aged 1-3 months in oak barrels. The extra aging process infuses the sriracha blend with more intense, sweet and more robust flavors. All natural with no preservatives. Only chili peppers, brown sugar, garlic, and salt. That’s it. Your taste buds will thank you.

Jelly Belly just added a Hefeweizen-inspired ale flavor to their lineup. The new flavor took three years to develop. One particular challenge was developing a flavor that would eliminate the bitterness of beer.
They also made a chocolate-covered Tabasco flavor. This sounds like a good contrast between sweet and spicy. Hopefully, they’ll produce a sriracha flavor one day.

Who likes a good buzz in the morning? Everyone. That’s who. The coffee-addicted need to put down their fancy schmancy venti, non-fat chai lattes and do away with the coffee breath for a day.
Instead, piehole meet mai tai donut. The Drunkin Donut out of New York will ship booze-filled baked goods to everyone’s doorstep. Get drunk off their selection of 18 donuts, two truffles, five cupcakes and four cannoli offerings. They’ll even make custom orders like White Russian cupcakes.
Get drunk AND satisfy that sweet tooth. This is what’s called, ‘progress’.

Peanut butter and jelly. Cream filling and Twinkies. Whiskey and jerky? Yes, another combination that can’t be beat. Marinate some beef overnight in Bulleit Bourbon whiskey, slow smoke it in a real smokehouse over Texas pecan wood and booya, you have Whiskey Soaked Campfire Jerky ($16 for 4 oz). Don’t know how many pounds need to be ingested to get drunk, but make a comment in the comments section if anyone finds out.

La cuca-sriracha, la-cuca-sriracha! Now that the sriracha factory shutdown is official, those red bottles of spicy delight will be harder to come by. Turn to these Kettle Sriracha Potato Chips to get that fix. Kettle spent months developing these chips to get that unique sriracha flavor. Order them online starting January 5th; get five, five-ounce bags for $15. In other words, 25 ounces for $15.

Finding 5 lbs of meat at your doorstep can be anywhere from scary (human head) to really scary (a newborn baby) to unbelievably scary (newborn baby holding a human head). But it can also be amazing, like with Bacons of the World from the Belcampo Meat Company. Once every few months they’ll deliver 5 pounds of tasty bacon to your door from their organic, pastured Ossabaw-Berkshire pigs. Each delivery comes with the American bacon that you know and love, as well as something from abroad, like Guanciale (Italian bacon), English bacon, or Pancetta.

Don’t get too excited; these Beer Grain Granola Bars ($22 for a 12-sack) won’t get you buzzed. But ReGrained does in fact take spent grain — the leftover product of the brewing process — and combine it with even yummier ingredients like coffee beans, honey, chocolate and almonds. The result is a Honey Almond IPA or Chocolate Coffee Stout bar that might not get you drunk, but will put a little something in your stomach so your next beer isn’t lonely down there.

I believe it was Plato who said, “I do not think you are ready for this jelly.” And never has that phrase been truer than with Puff’s Preserves Boozy Jam. From the Blood Orange and Fig Port Vanilla Jam, to Sour Cherry Almond Amaretto, there’s an array of delightfully adult spreads to savor. The Blackberry Bourbon Lavender Jam is made with Peach Street Distiller’s bourbon, while the Raspberry Chipotle Jam uses Stranahan’s Rocky Mountain whiskey. Your move, peanut butter.
