Merz Apothecary in Illinois has some great things to shop for that are unique and can be found around the world. Nutiva Organic Hemp Seed Oil 16-ounce bottle is cold-pressed and unrefined. Just like hemp seed, the oil contains the ideal 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. Unlike flax, hemp has valuable Super Omega-3 (SDA) and Super Omega-6 (GLA), which can help the body metabolize fat. Use hemp oil in smoothies, salads, vegetables, and pasta dishes.
To conserve the essential fatty acids, they suggest you use it raw or gently heated. Hemp is not to be confused with marijuana. Although the two plants are related, hemp products contain only trace levels of THC (less than 10ppm) and will not cause a psychoactive effect.
Fred Farkel Gummies from Germany is the cutest vegetarian piglet in the whole wide Katjes world! Cheerful little Fred is made of soft marshmallows and fruit gummies, and we could just gobble him up. You can’t help having a soft spot for him because he’s just so tasty and fruity! And he comes in three different flavors: his little pink ears taste like strawberry, cherry, or raspberry!
Kookaburra Strawberry and Cream Licorice Bites from Spain strawberry licorice meet sweet cream in two different ways: strawberry liquorice bites with a cream center, and strawberry liquorice bites encased in a creamy outer.
Coffee Pastilles a tasty tradition since 1591! These delicious candies start with a simple anise seed, which is carefully covered in fine layers of naturally-flavored sugar coating. The centuries-old process takes 15 days to produce each batch of these sweet confections. Try this classic treat on its own, or dissolved in your favorite hot beverage. Coffee Pastilles have a rich & energizing flavor. Packaged in a charming 1.75 oz tin.
My Opinion: I enjoyed the strawberry & cream licorice bites a lot. The Nutiva hemp seed oil I used in food after cooking or having a cold smoothie mixed right in. Coffee Pastilles are interesting as the anise seed is different. Fred Farkel was yummy as you are not expecting the marshmallow but expecting gummy all the way through. Great for Easter baskets.
