A while back someone commented that they couldn't find the Hickory Farms Meltaway Mints this year. If that person didn't find them, or anyone else is interested, right now everything on the Hickory Farms website is 75% off. I didn't buy anything, but did put some things in the cart to see if the discount came through. It let me put a cheese ball box, holiday petit fours, meltaway mints and the 1.6 lb sausage roll in the cart. It came up to be $16.48. The shipping is pretty pricy, in my opinion, and it brought the total up to over $32. I don't know if this is a good deal or not because the only times I buy this type of sausage it is from FFA (Future Farmers of America) or from the university meat labs. www.hickoryfarms.com This is the time of year I often go through the spices and buy more if I am low or if a spice has lost flavor due to age. I discovered www.myspicesage.com in 2010 and have been VERY satisfied with their prices, service, and quality. They have quite a lot of spices, a wide range of sizes, very good prices and reliable shipping. Myspicesage always has a deal as far as I have seen. You get a sample of a spice of your choosing (1 ounce of the spice, not just a teensy amount) for FREE with EVERY purchase. Only 1 free sample per order, of course. They also offer another item for free with purchase. I have not ever seen them to not have this second freebie. I have gotten 8 free vanilla beans (very good quality, very fragrant, 6-7 inches long) from one purchase and several ounces of chili powder from another order. The quality was better than what I have gotten from the grocery by a long shot. Right now they are offering a 25% discount and a 1 gram sample of Superior grade spanish saffron with the code WOOT25. Right now that 1 gram sample is selling for $7, so this is a pretty good deal - esp if you like paella! Shipping is not terribly expensive (starts at $4). Happy New Year! Just thought I would pass it on.
