The good people at Bobak’s recently sent over a few of their products including cooked bratwurst, a pack of maxwell polish, and a smoked polish ring. Bobak’s is a nearly 50 year old purveyor on the South side of Chicago and they produce a nice variety of products for sale both online and in their store.
I recently received a nice package of products from Dearborn Brand up in Michigan. In business since 1946, Dearborn produces a wide variety of products including hams, condiments, and of course sausage.
I’m a fan of Trader Joe’s and I shop there about once a week, picking up all kinds of great products and produce. Unfortunately this wasn’t one of those great products.
In the ever expanding world of sausage, we have THE premier seller of beef jerky entering the fray with a spicy pork and beef sausage called appropriately Jack Link’s Jalapeno Sausage.
It can be interesting when companies combine their products/efforts. Sometimes it works…sometimes it doesn’t.
For example, Budweiser and Nascar. Now I recognize that many Nascar fans enjoy a Bud from time to time but the whole drinking and driving thing just doesn’t mix well. Or Dodge and the Lingeria Football League. A fine idea for about 3 minutes until somebody at Dodge gets a clue. Unfortunately that was about 2 minutes too late for the press release to be stopped.
