What's your favorite "Texas" products?
Since moving here I noticed an abundance of "Made in Texas" products sold everywhere, even in supermarkets and costco. I've been snatching them up and trying as many as I can since I prefer local products, but now I'm hooked because all of them are sooooo damn good.
So which do you love?
Here's a list (off the top of my head) of what I've tried and liked so far:
Shiner Bock (that's a no-brainer)
North Dallas Raw & Unfiltered honey (got it at costco)
Native Texan Green Hatch Salsa Verde (CM's salsas are also good)
3 Happy Cows
Sweet Leaf Tea (available in NY but I didn't try it until moving to TX)
Tito's Handmade Vodka
Dripping Springs Texas Vodka
Texas Red Grapefruit
What else should I try? any Texas products with ringing chowhound endorsements? There was a Texas-made pecan rum that caught my eye at goodie goodie (the exact name escapes me) that was was thinking of trying.
PS- Lewisvillehounder, I've got the mozz co's ricotta on the list of things to try, CM always seems out of it when I put it on my shopping list (of course when I don't need it that's when they have it).
Thanks - I have a standing order with any of my visitors - entry to the UK requires Crybabies, Uncle Chris's Steak Seasoning from Bolner's (white cap, premixed seasonings - the pinto bean mix is great too - try them!) and Fritos. Woe to anyone who gets off the plane at Heathrow empty-handed!!
