Anarchy In A Jar

Anarchy In A JarThe world of jam and jelly has been turned upside down by one company that offers over fourteen varieties, including traditional favorites, and some not so traditional. Anarchy in a Jar is more than just a brilliant name, they make some of the worlds best tasting jams and jellies. They state that “Anarchy is freedom from food tyranny.”, and after tasting their products, I agree with them!

They sell small batch preserves from Brooklyn, NY, this is how they ensure the high quality of their product and exceptional flavors that no mass produced jam is going to be able to give you. They include an extra ingredient that no “big-box brand” has, that ingredient is love. It’s true, it even says so on their website!

If you’ve ever tried a food product that was produced in a small quantity and quality ensured by the artisans who made it, then you probably already know that there is no comparison. You simply won’t be able to buy the eccentric and pleasing flavors that Anarchy in a Jar offers anywhere else. The good news is that people are starting to realize how great their lineup of jam, jelly, marmalade and chutney taste and you can find them in select Whole Foods and other retailers. However, based on their delicious product, we suspect you will be seeing a lot more of them everywhere that food is sold!

Toast Pop Guy’s Favorites: Modern Black

Modern is a great look for anyone, and of course we all have our favorite things. It just so happens that I love modern things quite a bit. I like minimal and simplistic looks as well as items that contribute to the overall style of the modern look.

(1.) Sony Piiq Earbuds – Sony has developed a new line of earbuds by the name of Piiq that not only look great, have great sound, and offer neat functions not accompanied by most other earbuds, but they also have a wide variety of choices at a very affordable price. ($13 directly from Sony)

(2.) Blackberry Bold 9650 – I’m not necessarily suggesting that you go to your cell phone provider and switch your phone over for a Blackberry, you still have to have a phone that works for you and what you like (ex. keyboard, touch screen, camera, etc.), but do keep in mind that a good looking phone is half the battle most of the time. ($550 w/o contract)

(3.) Capsule Case Wallet – Capsule Case has been making a great alternative to the traditional wallet for quite some time now! Though I have trouble fitting cash in mine sometimes, it is perfect for credit and business cards. Keep looking classy and modern while saving the functions you need in a wallet. They offer many different colors in their line of modern wallets, but I like to keep it simple and so I went with a traditional black color. This wallet not only looks fantastic, but feels sleek and appropriately sized in your hands and pocket. ($15 varies by store)

(4.) Moleskine Sketchbook – If you’re like me, you love to sketch, but you hate carrying around a huge sketchbook with pages that smudge your wonderful works of art. Well, that’s where this little guy comes in handy. Moleskine makes my favorite line of books on the market, their paper is top of the line and does not smudge your work, especially when you use a sharpie pen (I love those!). They offer notebooks, planners, and many other types of books, as well as sizes, but you can’t go wrong with the medium sized Moleskine Sketchbook. ($15 varies by store)
