Grilling options from Johnsonville: For your outdoor grilling consideration this summer, Johnsonville has an impressive variety of both cooked and uncooked sausages, including the patriotic “Firecracker” Brats, Stadium Brats, Beer Brats, Cheddar Brats, and Chorizo Brats, to name a few.

Johnsonville also offers chicken and turkey sausages with 50 percent less fat, plus Johnsonville Grillers, made with premium cuts of pork and special spice blends. For a quick snack, Johnsonville Snack Summer Sausage in three sizes and four flavors (Original, Beef, Garlic, Old World Spice).

Cookie Butters and Spreads from Amoretti: For lovers of Nutella, speculoos, or cookie butters in general, Amoretti has three “butters” to add to your rotation: Hazelnut, Graham Cracker, and Cookies & Cream.

Superbutter Spreads: Seeds like sunflower, flax, and sesame are roasted and turned into Vanilla Bean superbutter and Chocolate superbutter. superbutters do not contain major allergens like dairy and soy, and are a good source of protein and antioxidants.

Elderflower Hard Cider from Angry Orchard: Angry Orchard's Elderflower summer seasonal hard cider is back! Balancing crisp apple sweetness and the European tradition of elderflower cordials, the seasonal hard cider is a refreshing summer option that lends itself well to light cocktails, if you’re so inclined.

Jarlsberg Minis: Mild, mellow and nutty, each Jarlsberg Mini is dipped in wax and wrapped in cellophane, replicating the popular Jarlsberg wheel, and packaged 5 (20g) pieces in colorful eye-catching bags. Each mini is only 70 calories each and perfectly sized for a small snack.

LO Organolicious Fruit Blends: For anyone who needs to regulate their blood glucose levels, LO fruit beverages, in Pomegranate, Pomegranate Mojito,  Acai-Blue, and Mango Mojito offer a low-glycemic juice alternative that’s made with organic blue agave and stevia extract.

The Better Chip: Now available in 10,000 stores across the country: chips made of beets, corn, chipotle, jalapeño, and spinach and kale for healthier snack options that are also sturdy enough for nacho construction and topping retention.

Bottled Oi Ocha Shincha Green Tea: For the first time in the United States, bottled first-harvest Japanese green tea is available. Oi Ocha Shincha is low in caffeine, high in antioxidants and vitamin C, and has been lauded by chef Nobu Matsuhisa of Nobu restaurants. "Shincha offers the ultimate tea experience for us Japanese," said chef Matsuhisa. "I am pleased that it has made its way to America as the fresh aroma and flavor is truly unmatched. Its smooth and clean finish truly complements the purity of our cuisine." Oi Ocha Shincha green tea is avaiable for purchase online through ITO EN.
