This comes from the "wow, that's kind of trippy" department: I tried a product called SanTásti at the Fancy Food Show and I can describe it as a flavor eraser for your tongue. It would be awesome to take along on a wine tasting, as it really does what it is designed to do: cleanse your palate. It comes in Classic and Cucumber flavors.
You can get a free sample by going here.
For more information on SanTásti, you can visit their website at www.santasti.com or www.crackersareforslackers.com .

They taste great by themselves, but you'd probably catch me spreading them with Laughing Cow cheese or jam and having them for dessert with a glass of Sobon Zinfandel. ;)
You can find them on twitter here and on facebook here. Pictured is the company's founder (Yuval N. Zaliouk) and the product!

One more thing!!
Mussini Natural Flavored Balsamic Vinegar Glaze
I have been using this on top of everything!! It's called Mussini Natural Flavored Balsamic Vinegar Glaze. It is spectacular. I make crostinis then cover in spreadable cheese, top with more crumbled cheese and pecans, then drizzle the glaze over that.
Another way I use the topping is on popcorn-- I will grate some cheese on the popcorn and then use the topping over that. It is available online here. Go for the Brandy Balsamic! It is also available on Amazon here.
There will most likely be a few more Fancy Food show highlights as the rest of my samples trickle in. Also, look for some more giveaways in the next few weeks!!
