Need AZ produced food gifts ideas

I am looking for products that are grown/produced in Arizona which can be mailordered.

On numerous occasions I have sent salsas, marinades and chipotle flakes from Tuxedo Chilis ( Which people loved, but I need other ideas.

I have heard of olive oil being grown and produced in Queen Creek. Has anyone tried it or have knowledge of it? I know they have a website but I would like impartial reviews if possible.

What else is out there that is really good and would make a great gift?

Thanks for your ideas.

  1. I very much enjoy the pistachios from Arizona Pistachio Company in Bowie (Cochise County), AZ.

      1. Well, I'd like to recommend beer from Four Peaks Brewing Company, but that's difficult to ship, particularly across state lines.

        If your recipients like cookies, you might want to try Urban Cookies. While their products don't scream "Arizona," they are locally produced.

        1. hi,

          the downtown phx farmers market has a booth called 'az's best' and it alot of great locally sourced items - fantastic honeys, almonds, crackers, root beer, and of course queen creek olive mill olive oil. its amazing - gorgeous color, nice fruity bite. they have a blood orange olive oil that is completely out of this world. i'd highly recommend it.

          1. I'd also recommend Queen Creek's olive oil, particularly their Tuscan and dipping oils. Amazing floral taste.
