Best Colorado-made products?

Hi all,

I'm looking for your thoughts on best CO products- honey, preserves, etc. Thank you!

  1. Olathe sweet corn. Available for a few weeks starting about the first of July.

      #1 is definitely Olathe sweet corn. I vote Colorado spring lamb as #2.

      Sorry, I favor the Questa honey from New Mexico. Miel as it's meant to be.

    2. I really like Enstrom's toffee.

      1. Cap Rock Gin Hotchkiss, CO

        1. 4 replies and nobody has mentioned beer? Some great breweries: Ska, Avery, Odell's, Great Divide, New Belgium, Mountain Sun, etc etc etc.

              Good question, Claire- but home is here :)

              it's for a Colorado products event- I've got Avalanche and Haystack Cheese, I'm looking at the Plum Daisy Products from Palisade to pair with those, 34 degrees crackers, and of course some great CO beer. But I figure that others might know of some things I hadn't thought of yet to include.

              But now I really want some lamb and corn...

                  Besides ones mentioned on this thread
                  I would add Helliemae's Salt Caramels.
