Bonnie's Jams Red Pepper Jelly

Formaggio Brand has a reputation for innovation and timely responses to consumer demand. A few years ago, Formaggio Brand introduced its Artisan Wraps, delistyle meats wrapped around sticks made of award-winning fresh mozzarella. Initially, this product was presented as a 22ounce tray offering three kinds of meats: prosciutto, pepperoni and soppressata. Since then, demand has grown for different meats and a greater variety of package sizes. Formaggio brand has answered that demand by offering two new sizes, an 18ounce version of the larger variety tray and also smaller grab-and-go

Made using fresh sweet red peppers, seeded habanero, cider vinegar and sugar, it’s the perfect combination of sweet and heat. Always a top seller, Bonnie’s Red Pepper Jelly is an ideal accompaniment to a sandwich, pairs well with a creamy cheese, and is spectacular when used as a glaze

5-ounce and 6-ounce trays (depending on flavor), each of which features its own deli meat. The meat choices have grown as well. Offerings now also include Hard Salami, Genoa Salami, Chorizo, with Jamon Serrano on the way. What sets Formaggio Brand apart is not only the wide range of meat choices but also – and importantly – the creamy, silky, handmade quality of the company's award-winning fresh mozzarella cheese, from which the sticks are formed. Two words describe them best: artisan and gourmet. Formaggio Brand www.formaggiocheese.com
