Shopping on Saturday: 10 Under 10

King Leo Soft Peppermint Sticks
My favorite candy of all time! I love to take a whole lemon, cut off the top, stick a King Leo peppermint stick inside and use it for a "straw" to drink the lemon juice. Yum!

Terroirs d'Antan All Natural Duck Mousse with Port Wine Pate
Made from the freshest duck livers, this amazing mousse has a creamy, silky texture. After preparation, the mousse is marinated in Port Wine.
(1 x 7.0 oz - 198 gr)

Colonna Granverde Lemon Oil

Fresh organic lemon and olives are crushed together, allowing the flavours to mingle naturally. Superb drizzled on grilled fish or mixed with good balsamic vinegar for a dressing.

Mr. Boston: Official Bartender's Guide
For 50 years Mr. Boston has been the drink-making bible for professionals and amateurs alike. My husband loves this book and has used it regularly for years. Just today he was searching for this year's Christmas cocktail.

Origins Peace of Mind Gumballs
Origins own peacemakers! Peppermint, Basil and Eucalyptus, release bursts of calming coolness. Tension blissfully melts away. My son and I chew these all the time. My husband has pointed out that therefore I should be as cool as a cucumber - I'll keep chewing...

Moffat Mustard with Wild Scottish Garlic

Wild Scottish garlic makes this mustard a gold medal winner. Try it with meat, fish or cheese.

Lindemans Framboise Beer
Long before hops were common in most beers, various fruits and vegetables were used to season beers. The acidity of Lambic beers blends perfectly with raspberries. I am not a beer drinker, but I love Framboise Beer - one of my favorites.

Grandma Lucy's Oven Baked Organic Pumpkin Dog Treats

Perfect for your favorite four legged friends!

A Charlie Brown Christmas by Vince Guaraldi Trio

This CD is a one of my long time favorites and always transports me directly back to childhood. It will remain one of the most enduring albums in my massive holiday collection.
Right now iTunes has it available for download at only $4.99.

Café Du Monde Beignet Mix and Chicory Coffee

No trip to New Orleans is complete without a trip to Café Du Monde. Of course, it's hard to beat the experience of being in The Big Easy, but a least you can eat a few beignets at home while sipping their rich blend of dark roasted coffee and chicory.
Beignet Mix $2.45
Chicory Coffee $5.20
