PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:


Scharffen Berger® Ben Tre chocolate bar is the newest Chocolate Maker’s Series single-origin bar with cacao beans exclusively-sourced from the southern Ben Tre province of Vietnam. The rare and limited edition bar is one of the first Vietnamese single-origin bars to be imported into America.

Scharffen Berger Ben Tre bar is a 72% cacao dark chocolate bar that is spicy and slightly fruity with notes of banana, cinnamon and fig – a flavor reflective of the country’s terroir and of Scharffen Berger’s small-batch, artisanal chocolate making method that creates rich, quality chocolate with balance and pleasing complexity.

While Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker began chocolate making with the idea that a blend of beans gives a fuller, more intense experience, the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker’s Series is the result of discovering phenomenal beans of a single variety with the complexity and flavor to justify a bar made from just one bean type.

Late editions of the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker’s Series include the Aminia bar from Madagascar, Camahogne bar from Grenada and Asante bar from Ghana.

Beginning in August 2010, the Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker’s Series Ben Tre bar will be available almost exclusively online at www.ScharffenBerger.com, in addition to a select few retail locations nationwide.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:


Urban Garden Chocolate Bars
Three flavors, Mighty Urban Garden Mint, Tangy Orange and Garden Rosemary, and Guajillo Pepper and Sesame Seed.  The bars are naturally flavored with ingredients from four urban gardens in both Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. as well as small family farms across the US.

Each bar variety is named after a specific urban garden, and the story of the four that we work with is on the back of the bar.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the bars goes directly back to the gardens and their educational programs.

Our hope is to both support the urban gardens and help them grow and prosper.  The way we see it, using really good chocolate is the perfect method for introducing everyone to urban gardens and their educational programs!

www.BertolliOliveOil.com

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Bertolli delivers high-quality, nutritional olive oil products for the entire family and can be found at most major supermarkets, retail superstores and membership warehouse clubs. Its diverse product line, including EXTRA VIRGIN, CLASSICO and EXTRA LIGHT TASTING, offers a healthy and flavorful solution for every cooking and baking need.

Serving sizes:

  • 12 oz
  • 25.5 oz
  • 51 oz
  • 68 oz
  • 101 oz

Bertolli will be highlighting Extra Light Tasting at Food Fête.

We all indulge our sweet tooth from time to time, but what if we could create recipes that will appeal to both those with traditional and adventuresome palates and cut up to 25 percent of the fat while keeping the taste? It’s been done with one ingredient change.

By using three-quarters of a teaspoon of olive oil for every one teaspoon of butter or margarine, chefs at home can reduce the fat in by up to 25 percent. According to the Food and Drug Administration, consuming about two tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil a day may also reduce your risk of heart disease.

The greatest benefit comes by substituting olive oil for saturated fats rather than just adding more olive oil to a diet.

(Source: Food and Drug Administration, http://www.fda.gov/newsevents/newsroom/pressannouncements/2004/ucm108368.htm)

Bertolli Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil is ideal for baking because the olive aroma and flavor are filtered out. Because the vitamin E in Bertolli Olive Oil makes cakes, brownies, breads and muffins turn out evenly textured and moist. And because it is a healthy, cholesterol-free substitute for butter or vegetable oil. Plus, with no melting needed, a little time is saved in the process.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:


At Nature’s Path, we live for healthy, great-tasting organic foods. It’s why we get up in the morning. But we are also a company that wants to do more than just sell breakfast foods. We aspire to advance the cause of people and planet, along the path to sustainability. And we like to think we put our money where our mouth is. Or rather, where our heart is. Because growing organic, healthy foods in a sustainable way is our passion—the cornerstone of our family company. It’s where, and how, it all began.

The number one organic cereal manufacturer in North America, Nature’s Path is a privately run, family business (currently two generations!) that has been committed to organics and sustainability for 25 years.  The whole, extended Nature’s Path family is committed to our values and mission: to be a trusted name for quality organic foods in every home – socially responsible, environmentally sustainable and financially viable.

All of Nature’s Path’s products are USDA certified organic, grown using a wholesome process without any synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers, herbicides and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).  We believe organic foods are healthier for people and the environment!

But we also know that when it comes down to it—no matter what kind of a difference we want to make as a company, and no matter how much you share those values—if our food isn’t delicious and exciting, we’re not living up to our fullest potential.

Healthy foods don’t need to be boring and tasteless. Which is why we spend our days and nights dreaming up new recipes, tracking down exotic new ingredients, and researching the latest (or most ancient) superfoods. We know you’ll be pretty impressed when you read our labels. But we hope you’ll be even more impressed when you take your first bite of any of our 122 products.

We welcome you to join us at Food Fête for delicious samples of Nature’s Path gluten-free cereals like Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise and Crunchy Maple Sunrise.  They deliver an organic blend of corn, rice, flax, quinoa, buckwheat and amaranth, and are a sweet and nutritious option for those avoiding gluten and everyone at the breakfast table! Nature’s Path offers 28 gluten-free, whole grain breakfast and snack options to help people avoiding gluten get the essential nutrients they need, with great taste too.

Or, snack on our newly reformulated granola bars; flavorful treats that satisfy any craving with organic, whole grains.  Enjoy flavors like Mmmaple Pecan, Lotta Apricotta, Sunny Hemp, Peanut Choco, Chococonut and Pumpkin-n-Spice throughout the day with this on-the-go snack.
