Colorado Small Businesses

Supporting local businesses is important to the future of mom and pop shops around the state, they might not employ the number of people that the big businesses do, but they mean a lot to our local economy just the same. It isn’t fair that local small businesses can’t compete with the big guys, it should be at the top of all of our lists to help them out whenever we can. The truth is that their product might cost a bit more, and sometimes it doesn’t, but it is worth the extra little bit to get quality.

Bloody Mary MarinadeThe Real Dill– Pickle lovers rejoice, The Real Dill has pickles better than any you have probably tasted before. These aren’t your run of the mill, store bought pickles, and the proof is in the taste. Two local guys started making pickles for fun, but their little hobby soon because a business, after friends and family kept asking for more and more! They have flavors like Caraway Garlic Dills, Habanero Horseradish Dills, Jalapeno Honey Dills and they even sell an amazing Bloody Mary Mix! Next time you are craving a little bit of crunchy awesomeness, check out The Real Dill.

Bobo’s Oat Bars– You might not be into all of that organic, gluten free, goodness, but you don’t have to be into that stuff to enjoy these bars. I know that you’ve heard it before, “but, they don’t taste gluten free” and it’s been a lie, hasn’t it? This time it isn’t a lie, these bars are honestly great. They taste like they are made from real food, and they are sweet and delicious, even if you aren’t gluten free. Give them a shot.

Hope Hummus– Have you ever had great Hummus? Hope Hummus is some of the best around, better than some of the stuff that I tasted in Israel even! They have some of the best flavors; Spicy Avocado, Sweet Potato, ¬†Jalepeno Cilantro, Green Chili Lime ¬†(it’s a *must* try), and Thai Coconut Curry Hummus. All of the flavors are Organic, Gluten Free and Vegan, so you are safe to serve this at your next dinner party, or to take it to a potluck!

The Minted Fig Card Co.– The designer of the cards at The Minted Fig Card Co. makes the most gorgeous cards around. She hand-stitches each card, and can make them custom to fit whatever you are looking for. She will design the whole card just for you, or you can choose one of the many designs that she has listed in her online shop. Nothing wow’s the person in your life who has everything like a card that has their name or a personalized messaged stitched on the front. The cards are all around $4.50, and with store bought cards being around $6, this is a great deal for an even better card. These little cards make a big [long lasting] impression.

Buy the things that you need, but check and see if you can get it local first.
