I may be traveling around in an RV, a lot of the time with questionable wifi, but that doesn’t mean I’m not on the lookout for cool products, interesting gadgets or fun gifts for people.
That’s what J’adore is all about. Finding stuff during my internet travels that I love that I think you might like too!
So let’s go!
I love jerky so I am always up for trying new kinds. The folks at THINK Jerky sent me a whole bunch to try out, they are perfect for hikes and long scouting drives. My go-to snack is my Sahale Snacks, but I love to have jerky a couple of days a week. The company worked with celebrity chefs to create the individual flavors and their creativity and experience with combining flavors shows. My favorite is the sriracha honey!
Tim’s Cascade Chips
When my family moved to the Pacific Northwest from Washington, D.C., my sophomore year in high school, I immediately fell in love with everything about this region of the country. Of course, food was part of that equation (you know me, it always is!). One of our favorite snacks were Tim’s Cascade Chips which came out the first year we lived in Washington.
I have a secret, I cannot eat a sandwich, of any kind, without chips. My Mom made a lot of tuna fish sandwiches back in the day and I ate a lot of them with those chips. I feel like Tim’s Cascade Snacks was the first brand or one of the first brands to make kettle-style chips. They are an amazing local company that has used the same farmers for the past 30 years.
When I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area it was harder to find Cascade Chips, but whenever I did, I’d buy a couple of bags and hoard them. Cascade Chips are way more available now, and I encourage you to try them out. I recently got the opportunity to try a couple of their anniversary flavors, I loved the Coney Island one!
Food Should Taste Good
I met the folks at Food Should Taste Good when I stopped by their booth at the New York Wine and Food Festival. I tried some of their new edamame hummus and was hooked! Who wouldn’t love a brand with that name? They have six flavors, I am a fan of them all, hummus makes a great RV staple!
My new friends at A Friend Afar mentioned Jetset Candy while I was admiring their blog card at WITS. They had an airport code which I love. When I visited the Jetset Candy site I was amazed I hadn’t heard of them before, but maybe that’s a good thing because I might be broker than I am if I did! I love the Paris CDG charm!
Also while at WITS in Irvine I admired my friend Christina’s bag from AirportTag. Christina being Christina has Glasgow of course (that’s her bag pictured above), I am pretty sure I’d go for CDG (Paris). I like the bag, but I love the t-shirt!
Traci Thompson is an RVer I follow on Instagram, she makes cool RV themed jewelry. I don’t wear a lot of jewelry but I have been thinking about buying some anyway. Then I spotted RV Gem’s new RV key rings, and I knew that was my choice!
#homeiswhereyouparkit is a popular hashtag for RVers (see I’m in the know now!) and in our case for 2016, it’s absolutely true! I seem to be wearing a lot of t-shirts these days and I really love this one! Traci is raising RV travel funds with this t-shirt she designed. This would make a GREAT gift for anyone you know who is RVing – full or part-time!
San Francisco: Portrait of a City
I have featured Fred Lyon before because his work is so iconic and I am fascinated by history. I have his book “San Francisco, Portrait of a City 1940–1960” and I devoured it. Now I wanted to share his latest project, a set of notecards based on the book called San Francisco: Portrait of a City. They came out March 1, so they are brand new and I’ve got one box to giveaway. Whether you have been to San Francisco or not, if you love history and vintage photography, you’ll love these cards.
That’s it for this edition of J’adore!
