Country Archer Meat Bars
Country Archer has launched a new line of collagen meat bars. if you’re a meat eater and looking for new ways to get your collagen boost beyond creams, supplements and powders! I know that meat bars might not be part of your typical beauty routine, but these bars are packed full of collagen peptides, which provide healthier skin & hair, boosted energy input and improved overall gut health. Country Archer meat bars are taking protein back to its primitive state - meat. The bars are packed with 15 grams of protein and made with grass-fed beef, antibiotic-free turkey and pork, and sweetened with only dates.

McCrea’s Candies makes fifteen flavors of luxe caramel. They’re based in Boston and use the finest salts, spirits, and seasonings to produce evocatively-flavored handcrafted l caramel candies in beautiful biodegradable packaging. The company starts with the best butter and sugar and slow cooks it to just the right temperature. Milk from the local dairy is added as are real-food flavorings. From there, McCrea’s handrolls the caramel and sends it through a restored early 20th century cutting and wrapping machine. Some great flavors include Black Lava Sea Salt, Rosemary Truffle Sea Salt, Ginger Fusion and Dark Roasted Mocha.
Grass Fed Coffee
