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.”

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.

Amazon.com – Sale Finale

Amazon.com departure…

Last year we were asked countless times to sell our products on Amazon.com and we did. We went through the process of getting through the “Gate keeper” at Amazon and was permitted to sell in the Grocery category. We marketed out products and let people we know we were there. We had a few sales here and there, but not to the extent that the engine of Amazon was hoping to take us. It was a let down for us quite frankly.

With that going on a decision was made back in Sept 16′ to exit Amazon after the holiday season. Well, today is the day that we were going to have all of our product shipped back to us and inventoried here. There was a hitch…removal fees and shipping charges. Both of them I was aware of…but .50 cents per unit to pack in a box and send shakers back? No..

So, I am going to pass on this REDUCTION in price to you. Head to Amazon.com and get a shaker of Classic, Carolina or El Toro at just $5.00 each and use your prime to get FREE shipping! I figure we’ll liquidate the stock rather than incur the removal fee. The original retail at Amazon was $7.69, so this is a great discount at $5 bucks! When the inventory is gone…we depart. Pick up a shaker and tell a friend! We’ll even add 2x your purchase price to your rewards account! Pick up all 3 shakers and spend $15 dollars and we’ll make sure you get $30 toward your first coupon for the year! Details are below as well!!

“Coals Kash” and Moving forward:

After looking at sales in 2016, we have decided that we want to give back for the dollars that you spend with us month after month.

  • Spend $100 and you’ll receive a 10% off code good for all of 2017
  • Spend $200 and you’ll receive a 15% off code good for all of 2017

Reflections and a great deal…

2016 Recap:

Over the past few years we’ve seen growth, steady growth and growth in both our retail and wholesale business. We can’t thank our customers enough for seeing that we are WAY different than what you are buying off the shelves in the market or in big box stores. Our customers have told us a lot this year that just because you get a good deal on seasoning, doesn’t always mean that it is going to taste good or be a great value. We hit both marks. We will never be the least expensive on the shelf and we know that because with a few extra dollars we want to (and do) deliver quality in every ounce. We are as proud as the first day that we launched that we are a handcrafted seasoning that only uses the best ingredients.

Self Sustaining:

We were very excited to launch our 7th seasoning (Savina #7) this past November after a very difficult start to the growing season here in NJ. We’ve ramped up our goals for next year and will be around 150 plants in 2017. We will continue to grow what we put in our blends so that we know you are getting the best ingredients. We will continue to evolve and we’ll have some exciting things happening in the year ahead.

Moving forward:

After looking at sales in 2016, we have decided that we want to give back for the dollars that you spend with us month after month. So, starting now we’ll be keeping a log of your purchases and when you achieve certain thresholds you will be emailed a coupon code good for the entire year. The schedule will go as follows:
