Holiday Gift Guide Vol. I Part III–GIVEAWAY INCLUDED!


This year I am very pro hand made business (bonus points if it’s from the USA but I’m not very exclusionary.) I just want to make purchases where it will make a difference to someone. While if we go and shop at Wal-Mart or Target, it may not make the same impact as shopping at your local mom and pop shop, or making a purchase from an etsy shop owner. So, please join me in making a difference in the lives of our neighbors this year. Even if you only purchase half of your gifts from home owned shops know you are making a HUGE difference.

WOLF CREEK CREATIONS


Apple Pie and Sweet Pepper

My Jelly. Yum!




Buy it here: Wolf Creek
What: Some of the yummiest jellies you will ever find.
Cost: 4oz jars start at only $3; Holiday packs including shipping start at $26 including shipping!
Who to buy it for:ME!  Great for the foodie, the hard to buy for person, the person you have no idea what to get, someone with a sweet tooth or you know anyone else on your shopping list.
Why: This stuff is so good! I am so happy with my choices! I have only tried two of my six jars and I am hooked. I originally found them looking for something to send my dad for Christmas. However Crystal (the lovely lady behind the jelly) had some fun and games on her page where her fans got to rename the jelly; so my husband suggested the name “Sweet Magma” for the hot pepper jelly and he won! So I got to try some out too! I was really impressed with the packaging, I liked that she used a lot of packaging, and it was mostly "green" too! I am a huge fan of packaging with paper. 









I have to tell you her chocolate covered cherry is AMAZING! It tastes like a cherry cordial, and it’s not too sweet. I have eaten almost the entire jar by myself. It’s fantastic on toast, pb&j and I am sure just about anywhere else you might think to use it. I am thinking of trying it in some thumbprint cookies. I am telling you I think I am going to order a six pack of this stuff because I do not see myself getting sick of it. I have also tried their Apple Pie (soon to be renamed Apple-licious) It really tastes like Apple Pie filling. It was also awesome on toast, I was thinking it might also be good a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or again anywhere else you can think to use it. It’s sweeter than the chocolate covered cherry. Another great thing is she has some sugar free options available as well. All of the jars are sealed and dated with the day they were made, so you know you are getting a fresh and super yummy product, made with love.

Here’s the best part! Wolf Creek Creations wants to share their jelly with you too! They are giving away two jars in your choice of flavor! All you have to do is like their page, and leave a note saying you came from “Becoming Mom.” Then come back and fill out the rafflecopter form!


US only please!

  1. Strawberry Lemonade. I had a super difficult time trying to find anyplace that even mentioned their flavors. A website would be so helpful or a better laid out facebook...You did a great feature for them though!

  6. I love ALL jellies so this would be a very difficult decision! But I am very interesting in their sweet pepper and their Apple.

  10. Hello Everyone -- Owner of Wolf Creek Creations here.. So happy to see all of you!! I apologize that the flavors are difficult to find, as we use to have a Discussions tab that carried all of them, until Facebook deleted this option for us. You can find our flavors under the notes tab, as well as other reviews, and shipping information. Once again, thank you for the support and a wonderful blog ;)
