Have you tried Bebeaux's?

I’ve been so looking forward to the yellow labels of Bebeaux’s Cajun Food arriving at Market Basket stores. Lauren Bebeau tells me I should be on the lookout for samplings. Sounds like they were a big hit dishing out tastes at the Big Store at the beach. I’ve tried  the chicken sausage gumbo and I liked it very much. Just heat and eat the thick, flavored gumbo that tastes very homemade to me.
Lauren says
Bebeaux's Cajun Food is distributed by Zummo Meat Company in Beaumont, Texas.  
“The first product in our line debuting at Market Basket is Bebeaux's Chicken and Sausage Gumbo which includes Zummo's Andouille sausage,” she said. “We are locally owned in Beaumont, Texas. Our company is run by three employees: Fred Bebeau, Greg Prejean, and Lauren Bebeau - all of Beaumont, Texas.”
More dishes are on the way, but get that gumbo now.

Cucumber Vodka over ice is a cooling thought this season. Add the thought that you are going organic, add some watermelon cubes, diced lime, organic agave nectar, salt and a cucumber slice garnish, then you’re enjoying the peace of mind of a Garden Variety cocktail.
Prairie Organic Spirits is to thank with products made with organic, non-GMO corn grown exclusively on family-owned Midwest farms that embrace sustainable farming methods. After being meticulously cultivated and crafted, farmers then recycle the leftover corncobs to create bio-fuel and feed, makers say.
My guests from Rhode Island had heard of this line and enjoyed some on their swing through Texas, pronouncing their samples smooth. Everyone remarks on the cucumber taste shining through. Pretty bottles complete the sophisticated package. Down here, we’re not so familiar with rhubarb, but I’d love to share some other recipes from “the prairie.”

1 and one half ounce Prairie Organic Vodka
1 and one half ounce pomegranate juice
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Directions: Shake over ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a fresh mint leaf.

1 and one half ounce Prairie Organic Gin
1 spoonful rhubarb jam
1 ounce lemon
Top with soda water.
Serve over ice.

Camu Camu is documented to have the highest concentration of Vitamin C in the plant kingdom and Amaçari is packaging capsules of what they are billing as a miracle fruit. I’ll say I felt energized during a stretch of days I was eating super pure foods for my health.
Here’s some of what makers say it does:

·         Supports immune system function with extraordinary Vitamin C content
·         Promotes enhanced mood, energy and mental clarity
·         Potent antioxidants protect cells from free radicals
·         Supports joint health with high levels of betulinic acid
·         Fights oxidative damage and signs of aging
