Italy is home to the world’s best pasta artisans, so we traveled to Italy’s breathtaking Molise region to create our very own line of pastas. Made from Italian-grown durum wheat semolina, our pasta is crafted in the authentic, old-world Italian tradition. The difference between our pasta and others lies in the process: the dough is extruded slowly through bronze dies and then patiently air-dried on looms and wooden trays for up to 20 hours. The result is a rustic, flavorful pasta with a perfect al dente bite.
Though it pairs beautifully with our new Marinara Sauce, it’s so delicious all you really need is a bit of butter or olive oil to enjoy. Stock up on our new Artisanal Pasta so you’ve always got an exceptional, family-friendly meal at the ready.
Make sure your summer fare is well dressed, and your grilling tool belt well-stocked. Summertime is grill time, and that means you need to beef up your supply of spices, marinades, grilling tools, and accessories to get the very best taste from your grilled meats and veggies. We know you'd rather spend more time entertaining friends and playing with the kids, so to make it easy for you, we've picked out some of our very favorite flavor-boosters and grilling must-haves, and they're all at great savings through Memorial Day!

Crunchy, sweet, delectable, and perfect little bites of heaven are just a few ways to describe our love for Jackie's Cookie Connection "Cookie Babies". Pop open a can of these dollar coin-size cookies, and you'll quickly find a new addiction. We love them as a quick treat or snack, and they are the perfect size to top a scoop of ice cream for an indulgent little dessert.
In 1979, Jackie, began with a humble goal. She wanted to make a great chocolate chip cookie that would satisfy her own sweet tooth. As it turned out, her passion yielded not merely a fantastic cookie but considerable opportunity. Before long, fans were flocking to 8 buzzing stores in New York City and Washington D.C. People would call out to her on the street, “hey, it’s the cookie lady”! Then came the accolades from the likes of Family Circle Magazine and even The Girl Scouts of America.
Fast forward to 2014. Jackie’s Cookie Babies sprang to life right here in their very own bakery in West Los Angeles… Read More

Every once in a while, I'll have a craving for crispy, salty French fries but before I satisfy my craving, the guilt of enjoying this favorite American snack takes over and I pass on my craving. I was happy to discover Veggie Fries, which are a great alternative when it comes to French fry cravings.
With three active and busy kids, the Peters family had a challenge—find healthy yet convenient meals the whole family would enjoy. That challenge led Dave and Cristina Peters to create Veggie Fries—nutrient-packed French fries made from farm-grown vegetables, beans, and potatoes. In fact, each 14-oz bag of Veggie Fries boasts nine servings of vegetables! Yes, nine! And, low in sodium, Veggie Fries are also a good source of fiber, packed with protein, plus vitamins A, C, and K.
But that’s not all. Veggie Fries are also gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO verified, and free of the top eight allergens, including wheat, dairy, soy, and nuts.
