Discoveries at the Jungle: Cheri’s Desert Harvest Jelly Candies and Vosges Goji & Pomegranate Chocolate Bars
Discoveries at the Jungle is our way to show you some of coolest, fun, and most interesting foods and foodstuffs that we carry from around the world. Each month, we curate a special selection of items that can be found throughout Jungle Jim’s International Market that we think you’re going love, talk about, and want to share. For the month of December, we are exploring the world of Pomegranates! Join us!
Cheri’s Desert Harvest Jelly Candies
Cheri Romanoski was an elementary school teacher for years until she started preserving fruits grown at her home in the Sonoran Desert. She started out just making preserves for her family and giving the excess to her neighbors, but as more and more people found out about her delicious creations the demand for her product started growing.
These pomegranate candies are deliciously soft, sweet, and have just the right amount of tartness. They are made from the juice of the pomegranate fruit and are all natural.
Where can you find these in our stores? Fairfield: Yellow 6 / Eastgate: Yellow 8
Did you know? Pomegranates can be eaten raw, and are used in Middle Eastern cuisine as well as Greek dishes, and are made into beverages including alcohol or juice, or used as a flavoring.
Vosges Goji & Pomegranate Chocolate Bars
Vosges has been making chocolate with only the finest ingredients from around the world since 1998. Founder and Chocolatier Katrina Markoff left only three days after graduating college, moving to Paris to chase her dream of studying culinary arts at Le Cordon Bleu. From that passion grew Vosges, a company dedicated to sharing flavors from around the world.
These silky dark chocolate bars are elegantly combined with a hint of tartness from the pomegranate, Goji berries, and pink Himalayan sea salt. The flavors intertwine flawlessly for a truly unique taste!
