Includes two 7-ounce farmhouse summer sausages made with a beef and pork blend and creamy American style sharp cheddar cheese.

Promising review: "Every year this is all my husband asks for! He loves them to death and it gives him something pretty to open on Christmas :) the food is incredibly tasty. I've personally never had a problem with my orders being rancid or moldy, always seem fresh! But I do order in December which I imagine is their busy season. The sausage is very smoky, the cheese is very smooth, the mustard is tangy but not very hot (which is perfect for us) and the crackers add the perfect crunch!

Fly By Jing

Fly By Jing is an Asian woman-owned small business making flavorful sauces and spice mixes you'll want to add to basically all of your recipes. The name is inspired by Chengdu's (the owner's hometown and the capital of the Sichuan province) "fly restaurants" — so called because they attract customers like flies. The chili crisp sauce is also made in Chengdu.

BuzzFeed Shopping writer Jonathan Mazzei says: 

"I got this sauce as a gift, and I have been obsessed ever since I tried it. It combines the most prized Sichuan peppercorns with fragrant dried chilies, fermented black beans, garlic, shallots and more for a numbing, umami-rich flavor that has enhanced truly everything I've tried it on — without overpowering the other flavors. I've been struggling to find the right sauce to take my home-cooked dishes to the next level, and let me tell you, this is it! Plus, the packaging is super cute and thoughtful, and mine even came with a beautiful little zine that includes a breakdown of the ingredients, some amazing recipe ideas, and more!"

Shipping info: All orders are shipped within five days of ordering via USPS, Fedex or UPS. Shipping normally takes 5–7 business days depending on your region.

Get it from Fly By Jing for $15.

It comes with seven different dried fruits and there is more than what appears to be there. And let’s be honest, dried fruits aren’t cheap. This is a lovely gift to give to someone. I gifted it to myself and am very pleased with my purchase. Also, it arrived sooner than expected. Delicious!" —Sudha A. Sharma
