Bombolini Pasta: The pasta for everyone!

Family owned and manufactured in Richmond, Virginia – Bombolini Pasta produces a traditional dish with an upscale, delicious twist. Featuring a wide range of products, with some obscurities such as squid ink pasta and black olive – Bombolini is the pasta that has been missing from your life!

They will be in the store TONIGHT (10/15) sampling some of their pasta from 4-7pm. Come find them in the deli! Who knows…you might just fall in love with pasta all over again.

Cheers to Oktoberfest!

The beginning of September has been a transition month for our Indulge department, where we start to move away from the effervescent, delightful Vinho Verde displays and welcome the season’s favorite: Oktoberfest beers. We had the great opportunity to sample a handful of the Oktoberfest brews that we are currently carrying in the store…and I got to say, they are really great this year.

After trying a few of them, the Ellwoods favorite for right now is the Bells Oktoberfest beer.  Sipping this brew made you wish you were wearing lederhosen, sipping beer out of a stein with a crowd of people around you chanting Oktoberfest. But you shouldn’t just take our word for it! Come by the store and check out our displays in the front of the store, by the checkouts and in the back by the Indulge department. You won’t regret it!

Welcome Mas Guapo to the Grocery Family

We are pleased to introduce Mas Guapo to the shelves. This zesty, organic spice is more than just a rub – it is a flavor explosion! We think their website says it best –

Not quite a Dry Rub yet not quite a Seasoned Salt, its unique blend of organic herbs and spices creates magical deliciousness that makes any chef seem more handsome. Your guests will laugh with pleasure while eating and cry and cry and cry when it’s all gone. And because nothing is more guapo than a righteous ‘stache, we have included one with every jar! Sazon Mas Guapo is truly a gift of love…love and a really cool mustache.

We will be sampling Mas Guapo THIS SATURDAY (9/4) in the afternoon! Fall in love with the flavor…you might even want to throw on a mustache.

The Flavors of Local

Here at Ellwood’s, you know we love our local food and products. Fruit 66 falls under this umbrella of love.

Produced in Richmond, Virginia – Fruit 66 is definitely a staple in many public schools, from Richmond and beyond – which is why we had to have them sample in the store for Back to School week!

If you haven’t had the chance to meet Monica or try any of their products you still have RIGHT NOW, Friday from 4-7pm and Saturday from 12-3pm.

We give Fruit 66 our “bag lunch” stamp of approval.
