Baja Blast will be available to those interested but in a different type of way. You have to enter to win your very own bottle of this highly desired hot sauce.

Mountain Dew fans can enter to win via their website. There are only a limited amount of bottles available but thankfully, these will be given away to those lucky winners.

Since there is a short supply, the company will not be selling them but instead, giving them away.

This takes place now through February 8, 2023.

This sauce company was created in Trinidad but spiced in New York State.  This family-run business has been passed down by generations of remarkable women.

Kingston, NY is the home of Ram's Valley sauces and more.

Owner, Richard Rajkumar, also known as "Ram," is from Trinidad but now lives in Kingston, NY. He uses his love of Caribbean sauce and beverages in addition to fresh ingredients from local farms to make his products come to life. 

Consumers have called Ram's Valley's sauce "mind-blowing" and a "dance on the tongue." If I had the option to, I would try their Pineapple BBQ sauce and Thyme Infused Olive Oil.

Can You Remember Your Favorite Girl Scout Cookie growing up?

As much as we enjoy Girl Scout Cookies in 2023, we often miss the ones that we used to love growing up. Have you heard of my personal favorite Girl Scout Cookies that are now retired?

Shortbread cookies are always a win. This Girl Scout Cookie was dipped in chocolate and it also had a friendly message on it. It had the words "Thank You" on it.

Ole Oles
These powdered sugar cookies were delicious. They also had pecans and coconut mixed in and were reduced fat.

Lemon Chalet Creme
This was one of my favorite lemon cookies to ever exist. How could a lemon sandwich cookie ever go wrong? The added cinnamon and ginger made it one of a kind.

I remember that these cookies were named after the founder of The Girl Scouts, Juliette Low. It reminded me of a chocolate turtle with its being covered in caramel, pecans and milk chocolate.

Ra Ra Raisens
This was unlike your ordinary raisin cookie. This Girl Scout Cookie brought in oatmeal and yogurt chips with the raisins.

Savannah Smiles
This Girl Scout Cookie knew how to put a smile on your face. They were lemon wedge cookies with powdered sugar.

Which Girl Scout Cookies Are Your Favorite?

I loved the Girl Scout Cookies that were discontinued but also enjoy the present day one as well.
