Recently, the FGmarket office had the pleasure of trying some delicious Scottish-style caramel fudge from our friends at Great Scot International.
Great Scot International was founded and incorporated in 1997 by a native born Scot. The company is based in Charlotte, North Carolina, and they work to bring Scottish food products and giftware to an American audience.
One of Great Scot’s most popular products is their Scottish fudge.
We got to try out some of the great fudge options that Great Scot has to offer, including their Gardiner’s Assorted Fudge, which includes delicious flavors like Country Cream, Ginger, Apple & Cinnamon, Strawberries & Cream, Rum & Raisin, and Vanilla.
They also have a unique collection of Whiskey Fudge products. Their Jack Daniel’s Caramel Fudge candies are made with real Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, giving it a thick and rich flavor. They are available in both the original Jack Daniel’s flavor and the Tennessee Honey flavor.

We loved Great Scot International’s selection of delicious Scottish fudge products, and we think you and your customers will, too!
There’s no better way to eat salsa than Naked: the brand, Naked Infusions, that is.
Naked Infusions is a love letter to great salsa, founded by salsa-connoisseur Selina Kepila.
Selina grew up in a tight-knit farming community in Kansas and got her first real taste of delicious, smooth salsa from a local family, who would come by after church on Sundays to visit. This salsa inspired Selina as a young girl, and she never forgot the taste of that salsa.
Now, years later, Selina has her own woman-owned salsa company, that seeks to create gourmet salsas in the same way that she experienced them as a child.
All of the salsas from Naked Infusions are guaranteed to be certified organic, non-GMO, and gluten-free, with locally sourced ingredients and an award-winning taste!
There are also no sugars, no onions, and no vinegar added to their salsa recipes; just all-natural, amazing salsa flavor!
Naked Infusions offers eight amazing salsa blends: Signature Ripe Tomato – Medium Heat, Signature Ripe Tomato – Mild Heat, Signature Ripe Tomato – Extra Hot, Rustic Blue Cheese, Fire Roasted Garlic, California Burnt Sage, Black Silk Espresso, and Oaxaca White Chocolate.
If you want a glimpse into what exactly goes into their salsas, just take a look at the ingredient list for the Signature Ripe Tomato – Mild Salsa: it’s just organic tomatoes, organic jalapeno peppers, sea salt, organic spices, organic garlic powder, and citric acid. That’s it!
No more having to struggle to pronounce the names of the ingredients on the back of your salsa jar. And who knows what some of those ingredients even do? With Naked Infusions salsa, you always know what you’re getting.
These flavors come in three great sizes for any preference: 16 oz, 12 oz, and their mini 4 oz jars.
Naked Infusions even has snack size versions of their famous salsas, perfect for the snacker on the go!
These single-serve cups come in packs of four 4 oz containers, and fit perfectly in a lunch box or even in the cupholder of your car!
Finally, what’s a salsa without delicious chips to go with it? Naked Infusions has their own brand of delicious tortilla chips. What separates Naked Infusions’ chips from the rest of the competition is that they are thinner than most other brands of chips, making them crispier. But don’t worry; they’re still plenty strong enough to hold heaps of gourmet salsa. Their chips are so fresh that they will stay crispy for up to 60 days.
Can’t decide between the salsa and the chips? Naked Infusions has you covered here as well. For the customer that wants everything, give them the Naked Infusions Snack Kit. The Snack Kit comes with one 4 oz cup of Signature Ripe Tomato Salsa and one 5 oz bag of tortilla chips. It’s the perfect marriage of chips, salsa, and convenience!
For Selina and Naked Infusions, salsa-making isn’t just a hobby: it’s a passion. Try one of her delicious salsa mixes today to see just what we mean!
When a client testimonial says “Get the Rosemary Sea Salt Bread. Just do it,” you know you’re on to something good.
Andy and Kim Yochum created the Boardwalk Food Company in an effort to bring people together with cold beer and a bowl of snacks. Sounds good to us. Andy, a fan of craft beer and the people who brew and enjoy it, wanted a snack that matched this friendly and social group. So the pair began playing with beer bread, and Boardwalk Food Company was born.
After a year, they decided that bread didn’t really fit the social side of the craft beer market and hit the kitchen again, switching from bread to a soft pretzel recipe. They found success in this snack that reaffirms just how well pretzels and beer go together. So, Andy, a craft beer aficionado, and his wife, Kim, who holds a degree in nutrition and food science, began to develop food in their kitchen. But, is it good? The snacks are developed to bring out the flavor of the beer and are 100% made in the USA. That, and the fact that their son Simon, the official taste tester, doesn’t let anything go out for production without his OK, means you can be assured that this is good stuff.
They have three types of pretzel mixes. They have the famous rosemary sea salt pretzel craft beer pretzel mix. These bite-size wonders are packed with salty goodness and are made with your favorite craft beer. They take just minutes to make and bake. Their best seller is still the original, due to the neutral flavor that makes it work well with any beer, and one the kids will especially love: cinnamon sugar pretzels. Launching in February, their next product will be beer flavored sourdough pretzel pieces. They will be 8oz bags of ready to eat pretzels in three popular beer varieties: IPA, Stout, and Pilsner.
They suggest pairing the Rosemary Sea Salt mix with Barley Mow or Darwin Brewing Company Pirata Pils. For the original: Barley Mow Brewing’s Calliope (for the tart cherry and lemon shandy found in the beer), or Big Top Brewing’s Trapeze Monk. To make the Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels especially great, try JDub’s Brewing Co. Poolside Kolsch, or Bosie Brewing’s Snowboarder Porter, picked because it has a lot of chocolate and caramel notes.
Not a beer drinker but still want to try these snacks? No problem. All of their flavors work with any carbonated beverage. Try a lemon-lime soda with their Original Pretzel Mix and you won’t miss the brew. But, if you’re sticking to a beer alternative because you are worried about the alcohol, there’s no need to worry. Nearly all of the alcohol burns off in the cooking process. These are made with beer to pick up the beer flavor, not for the alcoholic content.
For even more fun with Boardwalk Food Company, wander over to their t-shirt section for a shirt that says “Solving problems one beer at a time,” or “In dog beers, I’ve only had one,” great gifts for beer lovers!
You can check out their blog and recipe page on their website for even more ideas on making great parties through great snacks. Check out these can’t miss products and just add beer!
I’m talking about a real Welsh Cake, one that tastes warm and fresh, like it just came off of grandmother’s old, but reliable, griddle.
Copper Kettle Bakery, owned and operated by Helen Coates, is an authentic Welsh Cake bakery that brings the flavor of Wales to the States and beyond.
Helen Coates story is one that can be traced all the way back to the beautiful country of Wales.
“I grew up in South Wales, where early morning weekends were spent in the kitchen. My mum Eileen and grandmother Irene were kneading dough for bread and warming the griddle for our morning Welsh Cakes. I loved to help them cut the circles of dough. Even today, the smell of allspice and cinnamon takes me back to the warmth of that kitchen filled with love,” says Helen.
It’s this love for her mom and grandmother’s Welsh Cakes that led Helen to open up Copper Kettle Bakery. Even the name originates from Helen’s upbringing.
“I told my mum as a child: ‘One day, I am going to open a bakery and call it the Copper Kettle.'”
She began making the cakes for her sons, Miles and Noah, every morning, which then spread to her making them for her neighbors and friends. The demand was so great for her delicious Welsh Cakes that Helen decided to open Copper Kettle Bakery in the fall of 2013.
Copper Kettle Bakery’s ready made Welsh Cakes come in a variety of scrumptious flavors that will satisfy your customers’ every craving.
Some of their most popular flavors include chocolate chip, currant, and cranberry Welsh Cakes.
