Chasing Away the Winter Blues

IMG_0149It was no great surprise to me that the most recent Stop and Shop Limited Time Originals includes a thematic bouquet of flowers. The Spark the Fire Bouquet is part of a line of spicy hot products such as Hot Fra Diavolo Ravioli, Asian Style Sweet Chile Marinade and Hot Siracha Sauce. The chain is known for being a great place to shop for prepared items that one might use for company. Isn’t that one time that we like the house to be particularly nice?

You might say that I am a Stop and Shop fan, with a special nod to the Carlstadt, New Jersey store and its staff. You will not find a more helpful or nicer bunch of people. I also enjoy the store’s numerous tasty offerings that make my life easier, such as never-dry rotisserie chicken, excellent store-baked Kaiser rolls and classy Boar’s Head cold cuts.

As for the aforementioned Hot Inspired Originals, the idea is that their summertime flavors will chase away the winter blues. I don’t know about that, but I sure did especially enjoy the Red Pepper Jelly Goat Cheese Log and the Siracha Flavored Almonds – and the flowers, of course.
