Sunny Jim PB

The brand of peanut butter known as Sunny Jim was manufactured in Seattle, Washington by the Pacific Standard Foods company. The company was founded by Germanus Wilhelm Firnstahl. During the 1950s the brand accounted for nearly a third of all peanut butter sold in the Seattle area. The company was sold in 1979 for $3 million to the Bristol Bay Native Corp.

A "Special Tea"

Um...this tea promotes a healthy cycle, and who doesn't want a healthy cycle?

Batters Up!

This has to be one of the coolest pepper shakers of all time. Also, good for a few T-ball games. :)

Massaman Anyone?

Coming to us from New Zealand, it's Lamb Massaman infused with Thai Spices. Yum!


This is a Thai food and when unripe has the texture of chicken, making jackfruit an excellent substitute for meat. In fact, canned jackfruit (in brine) is sometimes referred to as "vegetable meat."

Ancient Jar

Cool Jar from the ruins of an ancient civilization...or maybe just a cool looking jar.

Plum Pudding

Almost figgy puddin.

Inspected by the Dept. of Bubble Gum, this delicious treat also recognizes one of the great meat sandwiches of all time!


Some great kids from Rowland Hall found the complete set of Sipah straws!

I've actually had these before, or something like it. In another country. They are prickly on the outside but a melon type fruit awaits on the inside. Not too bad, if you're willing to work a little harder to peel it off.

Magic Beans!

These magic beans work wonders.

This Jam Sounds Yummy!

It's Bodacious!

Dona Maria knows exactly how to prepare these nopalitos. This tender cactus goes great in salads, soups, omelettes, or side dishes.

A Cherry on Top!

The can looked old, but there is no date on the can. I'm sure the cherry pie would be de-lish.
