Drink Spotlight: Wild Tonic® Releases Dancing Naked®, Mind Spank® and Wild Love™ 7.6% ABV Hard Jun Kombucha



COTTONWOOD, Ariz., Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kombucha Lovers Rejoice!  Continuing to redefine Kombucha and disrupt the beverage industry, Wild Tonic®, the 100% woman-owned brewery announces the newest family member (wait for it…) Wild Tonic® 7.6% ABV Hard Jun Kombucha.  An entirely new category within the realm of alcohol, Dancing Naked®, Mind Spank® and Wild Love™ represent the highest ABV Hard Jun Kombucha sold on a national level.   Las Vegas, Phoenix and Seattle are among the first cities to debut these newest ferments.

In a recent conversation, Ms. Lyman, revealed the inspiration behind her innovative ferments and those of the future.

Q: The names Dancing Naked®, Mind Spank®, and Wild Love™ are so evocative & playful!  What inspired you to conjure these names?

Lyman: Dancing Naked® is a tribute to Henri Matisse and his painting 'The Dance.'  It is a playful rendition of three bears dancing "bare naked" around a honeycomb. I wanted the zinfandel notes to be celebrated with a bacchanalian-like visual.

The name Mind Spank® was a collaborative concept that my husband, Randy and I came up with while on a road trip back in 2015 while driving back from Hood River, OR where we brewed beer with a master brewer for my husband's 50th birthday. On the long drive home, we had the indulgence of having time to talk and ponder "what would be a fun name for the next most popular millennial beer?" So with that in mind, I created a flavor profile to live up to the name, Mind Spank® that is a sinfully delicious blend of coffee, chocolate, maple and of course a higher alcohol content.

Wild Love™ is about everything sultry and summer; blackberries and lavender and that tattoo illustration memorializes that obsession!

Q: These flavor profiles are much more complex than others in the Wild Tonic® family.  How did the idea to create them manifest?

Lyman: The flavor profiles were inspired purely from an intuitive space where I am guided without rational thought interfering, much like when I am creating art. My main objective was to create flavors that complement the subtle nature of the Jun alcohol ferment!

Q: As an artist and a beverage pioneer, what would be your best piece of advice to other aspiring artists in the realm of the fine, culinary, and beverage arts?

Lyman: Don't worry about the rules and what has been done before, always venture to the edge of what is already known and step carefully off into the unknown where things start to get exciting!

Q: Describe your favorite aspect of the Wild Tonic® experience.

Lyman: The amazing group of 52 people who I get to work with every day that inspire me endlessly by their dedication and hard work!

Q: What's next?

Lyman: Working with the bounty of 2000 plus organic heirloom apple trees that I am growing to ferment delicious and exotic things with!

Ms. Lyman concludes by saying "although a few companies in the country currently produce and sell an alcohol Kombucha nationally, Wild Tonic® is the first manufacturer of high alcohol Jun to be distributed nationally."

About Good Omen Bottling, LLC®
At Wild Tonic®, our uncompromising commitment to quality and unbridled passion for innovation and bee conservation informs all that we brew!  Whether fermenting our unique variety of Jun Kombucha with honey or pioneering brewing processes that maximize the integrity of probiotics, within each cobalt blue glass bottle lies the most exquisitely crafted energy elixir you've ever experienced!  We thank you for making this one-of-a-kind Jun Kombucha part of your healthy lifestyle!

About the Company
We've combined our love of food and our love of family to start our business"

Chef Jen started her career working with Alice Waters, renowned chef and proprietor of Chez Panisse. It was there that she became passionate about creating food that incorporates only the freshest, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. However it was her work in Ann and Gordon Getty’s kitchen as their personal chef that motivated Jen to share her recipes with the world.

Explains co-founder Serafina Palandech, “Part of Jen’s job included cooking meals for all the children attending the school in the Getty’s home. All the kids loved her cooking – especially her chicken fingers!”

This became the inspiration for Hip Chick Farms’ line of artisan, transparently sourced poultry products that are convenient for busy families. “Our chicken products contain no artificial ingredients; it’s like I’m in your kitchen, making it for you fresh,” says Chef Jen.

Food Spotlight: Abby’s Better Bourbon Maple Walnut Nut Butter



This Winter Flavor is the newest addition to Abby’s Better Nut Butters. It is great as a Christmas appetizer on Brie, or flavoring for nut butter cupcakes. With so few ingredients, Bourbon Maple Walnut’s maple holiday sweetness, and warming bourbon taste is rising to the top of people’s Christmas wishes! Combining organic coconut oil, pink Himalayan sea salt, 100% pure maple syrup, and Maker’s Mark Bourbon creates a perfectly healthy, but addictive, snack.



About the Company
Hey! I am Abby Kircher. I am a 15-year-old, homeschooled food-lover and health enthusiast. I constantly crave delicious, especially sweet, foods that please both my taste buds and body, but it was difficult for me to find a delicious product that fit my strict regime. So, on a slow summer day I decided to set out and find a delicious snack to relieve my appetite; however, I had no way to leave the house. It was up to me to make one myself. I had nuts, a food processor, and some natural sweeteners: nut butter! I continued to play with different flavors and recipes till I came up with 5 delectable tastes that are all natural, with no additives or preservatives. After savoring my creations, I soon realized that my nut butters were something special. With Date Pecan, Coconut Cashew, Honey Almond, Strawberry Cashew, and Coffee Almond, each spoonful is a burst of scrumptiousness.

No matter your diet, Abby’s Better Nut Butter is the perfect healthy sweet, whether on toast, fruit, or by the spoonful.

I never dreamed that my idea could grow into something so big and special.

I wanted to share this snack with everyone. I knew all ages would love this product as much as I do. I hope that each time you take a bite of one these flavors that it is an extraordinary experience that you will want again and again

Food Spotlight: Di Bruno Bros Booze-Centric Cheese Spreads



PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Di Bruno Bros. has launched two incredible new cheese spreads– Pinot Grigio & Fig or Smoked Gouda & Beer with Pimentos. These two unique flavors are the first new spreads that we've added to the lineup in over a decade!

Di Bruno Bros. cheese spreads are made with real Wisconsin cheddar, and are inspired by family recipes and over 75+ years of Culinary Pioneering.  They are sold in the Philadelphia retail shops, in national grocery partners and on dibruno.com to ship anywhere in the country.

The line of spreads includes six other options—Spicy Abbruzze, Roasted Garlic & Herb, Port Wine, Gorgonzola, Provolone & Chianti, and Cheddar & Horseradish.

Emilio Mignucci, third-generation owner and VP of Culinary Pioneering says, "Our customers across the country, and especially Philadelphia, love the original six spreads and people were asking for more. I'm excited that we were able to bring them two, incredible new spreads that really represent Culinary Pioneering and who we are today, just in time for the holiday season. We think our grandparents would be proud.  And, while it's a proud moment for us, it's been even more fun for us to work together with our team and create something new and delicious for our customers."


Pinot Grigio & Fig Cheese Spread (with Aged Cheddar, White Wine, and Sweet Fig Cheese Spread) is a sweet and savory spread with real pieces of fig that can be enjoyed alongside Di Bruno Bros. new Sea Salt crostini, paired with salumi, and added to any savory dessert or grilled cheese. As the name suggests, it's great paired with a glass of white wine.

Smoked Gouda & Beer with Pimentos Cheese Spread (a nutty smoked Gouda cheese spread, with pimentos & a splash of brown ale) is a nod to the traditional "beer & cheese" spread and adds a little smokiness to any dish. The Di Bruno Bros. family enjoys with their twice-baked crostini, on any sandwich, and spread on Di Bruno Bros. new Grissini breadsticks and wrapped in prosciutto. It's also great alongside a pint of your favorite beer.

Other recently launched, and complementary, products include Di Bruno Bros. Grissini, or breadsticks, as well as the introduction of Sea Salt Crostini to the line of twice-baked crostini.

Six fun recipes for how to use cheese spreads can be found on the Di Bruno Bros. blog.


The current line of spreads is inspired by family recipes that were once made in the Italian kitchen of Di Bruno Bros. founders Danny and Joe Di Bruno, over 50 years ago. The new spread flavors and creation process symbolize the "new era" of Di Bruno Bros., involving a team of Certified Cheese Professionals, and current, third-generation owners.  The goal was to create flavors that would bring the Di Bruno Bros. mantra of "culinary pioneering" to life with flavors that are delicious, exciting, and something you wouldn't typically expect.


Di Bruno Bros. cheese spreads and private collection products ship nationally on dibruno.com and all of our signature items can be found here. Products are also available wholesale through several major national distributors. Contact Di Bruno Bros. Wholesale at dibruno.com/wholesale to find out more information.

Di Bruno Bros. has established itself as the culinary pioneer of Philadelphia. Family-owned and operated for over 75 years, the gourmet grocer's original store in the heart of the Italian Market, still maintains the charm and character it did when Danny and Joe Di Bruno first opened the doors in 1939. Today, the Di Bruno grandsons along with a committed staff of food enthusiasts operate five retail locations in Philadelphia, as well oversee their catering and wholesale services, as well as dibruno.com. Key categories include cheese (with over 300+ cheeses available for purchase everyday and The House of Cheese book that tells their story), charcuterie, and specialty products from around the world.

Lumos Energy Strips are a mint favoured breath strip containing an all natural source of caffeine. They are naturally sweetened and flavoured, containing no sugar and no calories. Simply dissolve the strip on your tongue and feel the immediate effect of half a cup of coffee!

Compare that to coffee and energy drinks that have to travel through your entire digestive system - this can take over an hour! Lumos Energy Strips provide a compact, convenient, and quick way to get your daily caffeine.

Instead of synthetic caffeine powder, organic green coffee bean extract is used to power Lumos.

Error 404: No calories found in strip. Just kidding it's not an error. You’re welcome.

Each strip contains caffeine equivalent to 1/2 cup of coffee, at a kick of 30 mg per strip.

Fast acting is our middle name. Thanks to the novel absorption, Lumos caffeine takes effect faster than anything short of an IV drip.

Industry News: ARYA Curcumin+™ Introduces Curcumin (Bioactive Turmeric Extract) Beverages And Gummies


IRVINE, Calif., June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Just C, Inc. announces the launch of ARYA Curcumin+ Beverages and Daily Antioxidant Gummy Chews (http://www.aryaforlife.com/where-to-buy). Both lines contain ARYA's Curcumin+, providing 27 times the absorption of regular curcumin.

Curcumin, the bioactive ingredient in turmeric responsible for its yellow color, has been touted for centuries as a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It recently became the number one rising star among food trends according to Think with Google. Over 11,000 published studies on the health benefits of curcumin and turmeric can be found online at the US National Library of Medicine.

Comprising only 3-5% of the turmeric root by weight, curcumin is highly water insoluble and very little is absorbed by the body. ARYA's proprietary Curcumin+ solved the solubility and absorption issues and eliminated the turmeric aftertaste. The ARYA drinks, specially blended with natural ingredients and flavors like Citrus, Lemon-lime, Mixed Berry, and Tropical, and the delightful mango gummy chews are designed to appeal to consumers who seek great tasting products with the wellness benefits of curcumin or turmeric.

Each Blend also focuses on a different set of lifestyle goal, namely: Sports, Energy, Immunity and Radiance. "With the exception of the Sports Blend, our drinks are only 5 calories, and naturally sweetened with minimal or zero added sugar," said George Uy, CEO and Founder, stressing the brand's adherence to the most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which strongly recommends limiting daily caloric intake from added sugars to less than 10% of total. Added sugar, saturated fat, trans fat, and high sodium intake were cited as 'of particular public health concern' in the United States.

Most recently, observational studies, involving tens of thousands of participants followed for decades were published in major scientific & medical journals which showed consumption of antioxidant-rich food with known anti-inflammatory properties such as coffee, olive oil and spices, are associated with significant health benefits.

"We believe that including food supporting a healthy defense against inflammation such as curcumin, as part of your diet together with a physically active lifestyle, is an important health consideration for all ages. ARYA Curcumin+ may help to recalibrate your body daily and combat unhealthy inflammation triggered by diets rich in sugar and saturated fat, weight gain, physical inactivity, chronic stress, smoking, and sleep disorders," said George Uy.


About ARYA

ARYA's Curcumin+ harnesses the restorative power of curcumin - making it easily absorbed into the bloodstream (27x more effectively than natural curcumin or turmeric extracts) - and without the turmeric taste! The product range includes four beverages that pack the equivalent of 4 tablespoons of turmeric in curcumin absorption per can, and a delicious mango gummy chew which has the equivalent of 1 tablespoon turmeric per serving - giving your body its daily dose of curcumin. ARYA Curcumin+ is GRAS-certified and extracted from non-GMO turmeric.

ARYA Curcumin+ is available online at Amazon, Walmart, eBay and Sears. ARYA products can be found in many Southern California retailers including Gelson's Supermarkets, Clark's Nutrition, AMPM, and LA Fitness. Bristol Farms and Vitamin Shoppe will carry ARYA in August 2016. ARYA Green Tea and Pure Sparkling Water will be coming soon. ARYA Curcumin+ is distributed in Southern California by Statewide Beverage Company, Inc (www.statewidebevco.com).
