New Product Announcement – Fielder’s Choice

New Product Announcement

Over the past 4 years we’ve come up with some delicious blends that include our 617 blend, El Toro and most recently, our Savina #7 that brings the heat!. With more creations to come, we have listened to our customers and some of the feedback has been that despite our seasonings being very tasty and not overly powerful in one area, the smoked paprika has been the one thing that we hear the most about. You aren’t the only ones that hate the “kickback” so we have changed out the paprika on this one and went with a regular paprika and brought the same taste as you are used to in our #1 selling seasoning, the Signature Classic.

Here is our label for the new seasoning that will come out on March 1st.

The pre-sale has ended. You can still buy from this page as well as out Fielder’s Choice Page under “Seasonings.”

You’ll get the following:

(1) Shaker Fielder’s Choice 5 oz.
(1) Shaker Signature Classic 5 oz.
(1) Pilsudski Polish Style Mustard with Horseradish 12 oz.
(1) Pilsudski Sriracha Mustard 12 oz.

Dinner out and new accounts

Announcement:

Above the Coals BBQ/Grill Seasonings now being used at Taphouse15 in Wharton, NJ.

We were glad to get our seasonings into a local NJ eatery (a beautiful restaurant) and be on the menu with specials made exclusively by the Executive Chef. In the last few weeks we have been used in a variety of soups and also in a chicken sandwich special which sold out!

We are looking forward to where we are going and what creations are coming. We’ve been told that we’ll be a part of the specials and even some spots on the menu. We appreciate the opportunity to work with Chef Max and Taphouse15.

Dinner Out:

After hearing that our seasonings were being used in the Taphouse15 menu, we took advantage of “dinner out” night last Saturday and wanted to take in the experience at Taphouse15.

A few things that caught my eye right away were that they offered complimentary valet parking on Saturday night (and we’re not sure what night they offer that service), but it was nice to get out of the car and not have to worry about where to park and how far away we would be from the front door in 30 degree weather.

We walked in and it was busy…busy to the point that there were a lot of people waiting and we (thank god) had a reservation. We were seated near the bar where you were actually able to have a conversation with the people in the booth. We had the beer cheese pretzel appetizer and the ladies had the turkey Panini’s.

  • Beer Cheese & Pretzels IPA Infused Beer Cheese, Hot Bavarian Pretzel Sticks 9
  • Turkey Panini – Thinly Sliced House Smoked Turkey, Crispy Bacon, Smoked Mozzarella, Arugula, Roasted Red Pepper Aioli, Pressed Ciabatta 12

I decided on the Whiskey BBQ Ribs…which were out of this world. They arrived with fries and coleslaw and a side of ketchup. I would recommend them if you ever go there for dinner out.

  • Whiskey BBQ Ribs Whiskey BBQ Sauce, Coleslaw, Boardwalk Fries 24

Overall, I am looking forward to going back again and will keep everyone updated on when we have featured dishes on the menu.

How busy are you?

So busy...

Busy…

It seems as though we have been so busy in the past 3 weeks, that we fell off the face of the earth…Well, we didn’t. (Thank goodness for that!)

When you take all the projects that have to be done before the nice weather gets here in New Jersey…you do them in January and February! All projects that’ll help us get more production in the Spring!

We’re planting our peppers in about 65 days, so be on the look out for new creations from what’s going to be grown in 2017.

We have had so many things happen in the past month. Here’s the breakdown.

  • Above the Coals BBQ/Grill Seasonings will be on the menu at a trendy restaurant here in NJ in the coming week(s). (Name and location will be announced when we are on the menu)
  • All 3/5/7 oz. and 1/1.5/2# Food Pouches will have their own labels. (around 3/1)
  • We’ve completed the custom label for a May wedding (for favors)
  • We have a new seasoning coming out March 1st.!! (Very excited)

Yes! We are in the wedding favor business now! Love it! So, if you know someone that is getting married and needs favors…send em our way! Keep us busy!!

New labels should be here in about a month (we ordered a lot of labels for a lot of products!).

Local News:

Our friends at O’kaysions Katering in Alpha, NJ are selling our Above the Coals Signature Classic, Carolina, El Toro and Savina #7 in the Fresh Market as well as the line up of Pilsudski Mustards. We congratulate them on the year anniversary in their storefront in Alpha!

Amazon update:

After a lot of going back and forth and telling Amazon that we were going to leave the site, they catered a program to us that will allow us to continue to sell product there in the coming months. They indicated that the fees that will be taken out of any profits will be higher because the monthly fee won’t be charged, but a per unit charge will occur.  Although, we aren’t happy about more fees, we will continue to keep our products listed at Amazon for another 2 weeks – till (2/14/2017) at the $5 per shaker that it’s at now.  We appreciate the business over there and look forward to continueing to provide Fulfillment by Amazon going forward.

Shipping:

In case you were sleeping since Christmas, the Post Office raised it’s rates on shipments for Priority Mail…Crazy right? It felt like this just happened and it did…AGAIN!

So, we are toying with a flat rate shipping price that would cover all orders under $35 in product, and then shipping would be FREE…We are thinking of going this direction because most customers don’t order just one shaker…and the average sale is over $20.00….Tell us what you think!

Save while we are busy:

Coupon code for your entire order good from this posting date till Sunday 2/5 at 11:59 p.m.

“keepbusy17” is the code…

Cost of Ingredients:

Sometime in January we were in a conversation with some friends who said “Everything is costing more and prices are rising…” Well that was the beginning of what was about to happen last week. After a few calls to order ingredients for our seasonings, we were told by not one, but 2 manufacturers that they DON’T cater to the small business. Yep…you heard that right. They are in the volume business working with your big box stores and large market chains. Well, we aren’t part of their universe…So, in checking on the prices of ingredients I can tell you this…

  • Paprika has gone up $1/lb. in the last year.
  • Black Pepper has gone up $13.00/5 lb. container in the last year.
  • Granulated Garlic, Salt and Sugar have gone up over 20% in the past year.

You can see where we are going here…

Prices as of 4/1/17 are going up on the retail and wholesale sides. We aren’t happy about this, but to continue to make a great product we’ll be following suit and raising our prices just a little.

Thanks you for understanding!
