    43 Things For Anyone Whose True Love Is Food (And Drinks)

    Warning: this post may (and probably will) make you hungry.

    1. A bag of Korean honey butter chips that just might be the greatest chips of all time, imho. They're the perfect amount of sweet and buttery without being overwhelming, and they taste like no other potato chip I've ever had.

    2. A bottle of Everything but the Bagel seasoning to elevate anything you sprinkle it on! Use it to upgrade your avo toast, eggs, pizza, popcorn, salads, and much much more.

    3. Some extra toasty Cheez-Its that are HIGHLY superior to the plain ol' original flavor. Seriously, don't sleep on these.

    4. Some super rich chocolate walnut cookies from Levain Bakery that might just be the most luxurious-tasting cookies I've ever had.

    5. A variety pack of Truff sauces — featuring the Original, Hotter, and White Truff hot sauces — ready to throw a party for your tastebuds and work their way into way more meals and snacks than you'd expect!

    6. A trio of delicious jams that are ~jam~ packed with flavor. This set includes raspberry redcurrant geranium jam, cherry rosehip hibiscus jam, and lavender blackberry rhubarb jam, and all I've got to say is — YUM.

    The three jars of jams

    7. A bag of chile- and hibiscus powder-dusted mango that's a little bit sweet, a little bit salty, and a little bit spicy to equal a flavor you won't be able to get enough of.

    8. A 12-pack of Topo Chico — one of the bubbliest sparkling waters out there — that'll do a little dance all over your tastebuds and make you wanna swear off still water for good (although you probably shouldn't do that).

    9. Some incredibly tasty garlic-flavored roasted peanuts that are fantastic on their own but also pair nicely with a cold beer. I tried these for the first time recently, and am pretty much obsessed.

    10. A bag of Snyders gluten-free plain pretzel sticks that — hear me out — are even better than non-gluten free pretzels. I eat plenty of gluten-rich foods, but if I'm in the mood for plain pretzels, these are my new go-to, due to their impressive, vastly superior crunch. Don't knock 'em 'till you try 'em!

    11. A variety pack of vegan, gluten-free cookie dough from DEUX that makes mouth-watering cookies you'll feel good about eating, knowing they're enhanced with immunity vitamins and protein. Plus, you can eat it straight out of the jar!

    12. Some dark chocolate peanut butter cups that are the perfect mini dessert when you're cravin' something quick and mouth-wateringly good.

    13. Some furikake rice seasoning to elevate your rice dishes or really...anything you wanna sprinkle it on! This stuff is jam packed with umami-rich seaweed and roasted sesame seeds, and it goes great on avo toast, veggies, fish, sushi rolls, and almost anything else you can think of.

    14. Some blissfully crunchy vegan beet puffs that just go down so easily and are made with delicious plant-based ingredients. You don't even have to be vegan or a beet-lover to enjoy these! The beet flavor is subtle, but that doesn't mean these are lacking in flavor. Quite the opposite, in fact!

    15. An Atlas Coffee Club subscription to take your tastebuds on a world tour via the finest coffee from around the globe — all delivered directly to your doorstep!

    17. A jar of Sichuan Chili Crisp from Fly By Jing you'll wanna use on EVERYTHING. Seriously. It's hot and tingly without being overwhelmingly spicy, and its bold flavor is so delicious, you won't be able to get enough. This sauce is mind blowing on everything from noodles and eggs, to pizza and even ice cream! *Plus*, it's vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free, and made without preservatives or artificial flavors.

    18. A pouch of antioxidant-rich turmeric spice herbal tea full of spicy turmeric and cinnamon with ginger undertones to ignite your taste buds, warm your insides, and help boost your immune system.
