Sickles Market is a leader in the specialty food market, always on the cutting edge of introducing delicious and unique foods from around the globe to its customers. Now landing on Sickles shelves are some of the delectable new products that were 2013 Sofi (Specialty Outstand Food Innovation) Award winners at the Summer Fancy Food Show in late June. The Summer Fancy Food show is the largest marketplace devoted exclusively to specialty food in North America.
The five new food trends emerged from that show are: Reinvented Frozen Treats; Grains & Seeds in New Places; Global Meal Starters; Retro Mania Done New, and Be Your Own Mixologist.
Falling into the Global Meal Starters and a perfect complement to an elegant cheese plate
are: Grace & I Handcrafted Hawaiian Press, a pressed fruit block full of tropical fruits and nuts resting on a wood cutting board and Lesley Stowe Fine Foods Salty Date and Almond Raincoast Crisps, all natural rustic crackers filled with nuts, seeds and fruit.
Possibly a Retro Mania Done New trend is an alternative way to enjoy your oats - other than a daily dose of oatmeal - in a packet of Efflie’s Homemade Single Serve Oatcakes, a rich buttery nutritional treat to eat on the go. Other products that might fall into this category are: Cackalacky Spice Sauce, a spicy savory sauce made with heart-healthy sweet potatoes that will kick up a notch the flavor of burgers, wings or even omelets and paninis.
Some specialties from around the globe that you will find new on Sickles shelves are:
K.L. Keller Imports Basque Black Cherry Confit, a sweet and sour preserve bursting with plump, whole cherries.
Olli Salumeria Pepperoni is perfect for an antipasto or topping for a pizza.
Enrich a bowl of pasta with Ritrovo Selections Casina Rossa Due Formaggi Sugo al Pomodoro, a rich sauce blended with two aged sheep’s milk cheeses.
Other new foods with a twist are: the silky smooth and flavorful Sir Kensington’s Classic Mayonnaise and Vermont Smoke and Cure Chipotle RealSticks, small, healthy snack-size sticks of delicious meat with 50 percent less fat and 40 percent less salt than the other leading brands.
You can be a food-forward hostess and surprise your family and guests with a mouth-watering, beautiful hors d’oeuvre presentation of these specialty items. Sickles Market is located at 1 Harrison Avenue, Little Silver. For more information or ordering, call 732-741-9563 and shop online at Sickles Market.
