If there's one sign that Fall is here, it's the humble pumpkin. What was once a crop just used for pies and jack-o-lanterns is now a symbol - and ingredient that has quite the cult following. Pumpkin Spice lattes, pumpkin pastas, pumpkin pastries, and of course, pumpkin beer...it's all part of the pumpkin "worshiping" that starts in September and goes through Thanksgiving.
Our Fall pumpkins are here and they are as beautiful as ever. They're brought down to us from Van Groningen & Sons, a farm located in Northern California. The farm was started in 1922 by Henry Van Groningen, who had immigrated from the Netherlands to America in 1910. Over the years the farming operation took different shapes and today, is ran by his children, nephews, and grandchildren.
From melons to corn to nuts, Van Groningen & Sons do it all. But when Fall comes, they are all about their "pamper'd pumpkins." Boasting traditional carving pumpkins as well as exotic varieties, they take great pride in… Read More

The gorgeous colors and designs of these gem-like candies draw your attention, while the flavors cater to the most sophisticated of palates.

Sugarfina started out in 2012 as an online only retailer of their high-end candies. They opened their first retail store in 2013 in Beverly Hills, and have since grown to a dozen locations, six of which are in California.

They asked. “Why should children have all the fun?” They then went on a quest to find the ultimate candy for grownups!
Sugarfina's premium candies are made with only the finest ingredients… Read More
Our Virginia Peanuts are one of only four types of peanuts grown in the US. They represent only 15% of the total U.S. peanut production. While this variety of peanut is already considered the largest kernel size of all four types, we only source the “cream of the crop” for our delicacies, the very highest market grade available – Super Extra Large. Please note that the actual size of the Super Extra Large Peanut may vary from season to season, depending on the growing conditions of the seasonal crops. Less than 3% of all Virginia Peanuts grown meet the strict standards of this grade. And you can be assured we have sourced the finest and largest available.
All of our Virginia Peanuts are prepared by our Roastmaster in small batches, using the same time-honored recipes. A roasting process that cannot be duplicated by mass production methods. Our peanuts are hand-cooked in pure golden peanut oil with no additives or preservatives to alter the… Read More

Grilling season has officially kicked off! Glorious weather, delicious grill-ready entrees in our ad, and the upcoming Memorial Holiday are just a few reasons why you should jump on the grilling bandwagon, if you haven't already.
Optimal BBQ weather means there's many occasions for gathering with friends and family, whether it's a backyard cookout, a beach bonfire, or a picnic in the park. Traveling with your goodies in tow doesn't have to be such a pain, especially with the grillin' themed reusable bags from LOVE Reusable Bags.
Love Reusable bags are one of my favorite lines. I have many different styles, shapes, and sizes and love that they are 100% washable. I use my reusable bag every time I go shopping, I take my bags to the Hollywood Bowl and the farmers market, and now that the grillin' line is available in stores, I'll be sure to have these in tow during my next grilling adventure.
The new patterns for summer are really exciting!! They are fun and bright in patterns evoking… Read More

Since moving to Long Beach, my family and I ride our bikes constantly. Everywhere we need to go is very close and weather almost always cooperates. We ride down to the local shops and restaurants, or go for a beautiful ride along our California coast bike trail. During our long rides, we always have one thing in tow - Bobble Insulate bottles to keep hydrated.
The Bobble Insulate bottle is not only functional; it is also our new accessory piece! Mine happens to be a great blue hue, which matches my bike. There are plenty of hydration bottles out there, but let me tell you a few reasons why I love the bottles from Bobble: its unique shape fits my hand perfectly, it's available in a fun array of colors, and it keeps your beverage fresh and cold! The bottle is made from double-wall, high-grade stainless steel to keep your favorite beverage cold (or hot) for hours. It also has a wide mouth to fit ice cubes.
Bobble Insulate will definitely be your new favorite item for the hot summer… Read More
