Raw Rutes -

Raw Rutes just sent me a few packages of their products to try!

I was thrilled to open the box and find these fun pics and spoons!

You may remember a few photos I posted with their products:

The Tree Bunch Gourmet Cocktail Pick is perfect for a Bloody Mary.  As you can see, they are sturdy enough to hold a chicken wing, as well as a piece of celery, a slice pf pepperoni, a slim beef stick, a grape and a piece of cheese!!!  These hold your Happy Hour snacks, so no need for a tray of nibblers!  Be creative, I can imagine a little hamburg slider, meatballs, bacon, pickled green beans - the ideas are endless!

Wouldn't these also be cute for children in their glass of milk with donut holes?

or cookies....

Raw Rutes is a Buffalo, NY based company, on a mission to help you celebrate the homegrown and homemade in your life. Many of their products are made right in Buffalo, with the remainder being supplied by craftsmen from across the U.S. and countries like Poland, Italy, and Slovenia. Their staff live and breathe the time honored slow-food traditions that were pushed aside for Instant Noodle Cups and TV Dinners. Whether it's harvesting, dehydrating or fermenting foods, they like to be involved in the process and they are there to help you do the same! 

The Cocoa Caribou Hot Chocolate Buddies are so much fun, not only for children, but adults, too!  Who doesn't love a cup of hot cocoa loaded with marshmallows?  The picks also can hold chocolates, soft mints, pastel pillow mints, even a few soft cookies!

What child wouldn't enjoy coming home from school to this snack?

They are also awesome in cocktails.... a few little treats with a Rum and Coke: 

The first gift they sent was a set of Gin-iper Branches.  These will be so much fun to use in the summer with berries and chunks of fruit!  Today I made a cocktail with Blueberry Vodka and Sprite....

...and I filled the branch with blueberries and a sprig of mint!


This is such a fun way to make a cocktail special and tastier!


The Dessert Spoons are just adorable and quite unique, They remind me of the Hoodsie Cup spoons from my childhood that were made from wood, but much sturdier and more versatile....

...perfect for ice cream....

...and I can even imagine using these little penguins to serve or spread cream cheese dips, peanut butter onto crackers or encouraging children to try new foods!

The Nifty Lil Narwhal Martini picks are also very versatile.  Perfect for Manhattans and Martinis - OR - simply to add a little lemon flavor to your water: 

The larger Nifty Narwhal Picks are perfect for Mojitos, holding mint and limes OR sinking a lemon in a Gin and Tonic:

They also carry the cutest Garden Tools and I want to order the Kitchen Herb Hanger, which is so reasonably priced!  They have clever Kitchen Tools, and if you make a lot of tomato sauce in the fall, you might need this !

  2. What a fun company! That's all really cute stuff!

  3. I don't think I know what a Narwals is, but if it's these little cute!!! I LOVE the one with the donut holes and the reindeer one with the marshmallows on his antlers!!!!!!! I'm looking those up! I have some Stoli Blueberry down on the basement level. I think it's time to take a little field trip from my office down there! Hmmm....this is a great pic of it, too!
