Send Them Something Special from Wisconsin
With the holidays fast approaching, many of us are thinking about how we will celebrate this year. Some people are looking for new ways to celebrate from home, and others are unable to be with their usual family and friends. Stay connected by sending a piece of Wisconsin to everyone on your shopping list this year. Look no further than the Something Special from Wisconsin™ (SSfW) program for all of your unique gifting needs.
Since 1983, the SSfW program has been trademarked through the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection (DATCP). As you shop the aisles or your computer for your holiday ingredients and gifts this year, keep an eye out for the yellow and red SSfW sticker.
This sticker carries a very special meaning. When you see it you can be assured that at least half of the product ingredients, production, or processing has come from right here within our state. With nearly 450 companies participating in this special program, there is bound to be something for everyone.
Many SSfW companies have prepared gift boxes perfect for sending in the mail. For the coffee lover in your circle of friends, consider Beans n Cream coffee from Sun Prairie. Beans n Cream coffee is ethically sourced and roasted in-house on an energy efficient roaster with zero emissions. Coffee beans are roasted and shipped to order to ensure the best tasting, freshest product is delivered in a beautiful seasonal box ready for gifting. The smell of this coffee alone will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
Another SSfW gift option to send to family and friends is Poppin’ Z’s Gourmet Popcorn. With sweet and savory flavors everyone will want to get their hands on these. The boxes are beautifully packed with popcorn collections for any occasion including colors for your favorite team game day, popcorn buffet for events, and more. With over 50 flavors to choose from it will be hard to narrow down what variety to choose.
There are only a few things I have trouble saying ‘no’ to and caramels are one of them. Cream City Caramels and Confections, based in Wauwatosa, are made with REAL butter and heavy cream! These delicious treats melt in your mouth and are finished with chunky salt to bring out all the flavor. Cream City Caramels also offer a Craft Beer Caramel Assortment box with five beer flavors: - Imperial stout, India pale ale, vanilla porter, Weiss bier, pumpkin ale, surprisingly delicious!
