Fresh from Brooklyn, Delivered Straight to Your Door

Newly arrived in New York? Try these treats to enrich your taste of food on order. 

New York is famous for a lot of things including Broadway, Wall Street, great food and powerful attitudes. It’s one thing to proudly buy something stamped “Made in the U.S.A.,” but it’s even better when you know the item came from the one and only Brooklyn. If you are familiar with the Big Apple and pining for a little taste of home, here are a few items you can order straight from this famous borough of the famous city.

Sexy Morning Toast

Nothing is better in the morning than toast with jam, and you can take it to the next level by choosing jam with a little sweet flirtation mixed in. Dizzying Jam offers unique jam flavors that include a hint of booze and a healthy serving of flirtatious humor. Order a jar of You’re My Boy Blueberry for a flavor that boasts of blueberry, vanilla and a hint of bourbon.

Taste of the Brooklyn Delis with Specialty Spreads

It’s the mayonnaise that makes the sandwich, but you don’t have to settle for what the grocery store carries. Manufactured in the heart of Brooklyn, Empire Mayonnaise offers more than 50 unique flavors to make your sandwich taste like it came from the bodegas you loved when you lived there. The exotic flavors include incredible taste combinations like red chili, smoked paprika, malt vinegar and even white truffle.

Delicious Liquors Handcrafted with Pride

If you’re looking for bourbon with a unique flavor or moonshine that you can legally enjoy, contact Kings County Distillery. They offer handmade booze with unique tastes and a smooth flavor that only a New Yorker could deliver.

A Vintage Taste with a Modern Twist

Gone are the days when children would venture into the candy store with coins tucked safely in their pockets. Candy is now available in every store, but it’s not the same as the delicious hard candy that once came from the corner store. You can now relive the experience with the same incredible flavor with retro candy from Brooklyn Hard Candy. Sold in a clever apothecary jar, the sugar and citric acid candy makes the perfect party favor for any gathering.

The Romance of Beards

Beards fell out of fashion around the same time that candy stores started disappearing from the retail scene. However, they are coming back in favor. There’s no need to grow a full beard, men are once again sporting facial hair to highlight the lower edge of their jaw, just their chin or cover most of their face. With the reappearance of cool and even sexy beards, they need something to keep them looking nice. Beard oil from MCMC Fragrance makes facial hair look glossy and smell wonderful. Pick up a bottle today for that special guy in your life who chooses to embrace the hair and limit razor time.

Cool Pickles, Exotic Flavors

Some people love pickles, other people despise them, but they can all agree that pickles are certainly more interesting when you mix up the flavors. Brooklyn Brine offers pickles made with upstate New York apple-cider vinegar and delicious spirits like Whiskey Sour and Maple Bourbon. When you want something different to munch on, reach for a jar of unique pickles made with Brooklyn attitude and flair.

There are several wonderful products available for sale in the Big Apple. While you can find watches on every street corner and incredible jewelry at Tiffany’s, you can also find items to add some Brooklyn flair and attitude to your own home. Available from the heart of the Big Apple and delivered right to your door, it’s time for you to add some New York style to your life.
