It has real food ingredients, grass-fed whey protein, and the much-needed, quality probiotics. All the rich protein you could want and the whole food nutrition even your foodie friends will crave.
If you are looking for quality collagen to add into the mix (because we love healthy skin, hair, and nails), drop in the AvoCollagen along with their meal replacement.

If that wasn’t fancy enough the Clarity Creamer should round out your food gifts nicely.

Since it doesn’t contain any sugar, “cheating” never eve happened, even though this tastes amazing!

Don’t you dare get someone some holiday food gifts without some amazing combinations of toffee and peppermint in a keepsake wooden gift box! This won’t fit into a stocking, but it will fit just nicely on your love’s nightstand, an end table, or holiday treat table because celebrating the holiday without Almond Toffee Crunch from Hilliards Candy is just wrong. It’s known as “Buttercrunch”, their classic Hilliard recipe that is a beloved treat for everyone. The tender crunch of the almonds and toffee is swallowed up by delicious dark chocolate, topped with almonds for a stunning finish.
Now, think holiday layers in a gorgeous wooden keepsake box for the ultimate treat. The Limited Edition Peppermint Bark comes with the signature dark chocolate layered with creamy white chocolate with a hint of natural peppermint oils. Then add in yet another layer of crushed bits of Hilliards festive red, green, and white peppermint candy. If the color scheme isn’t tempting enough, the flavors will have your mouth begging for more. Oh, and Oprah even thought it was delicious enough to put it on her “Favorite Things” list back in 2018!
Another beautifully decorated peppermint bark from Hilliards Candy, the Hanukkah Peppermint Bark is layered similarly but comes with a gorgeous, specially made mix of blue crushed peppermint hard candy. It still has the signature dark chocolate and smooth white chocolate layers with just enough peppermint oil to compliment the flavors but now, with the holiday cheer of sparkly blues. Hilliards Candy makes any food gifts an absolute pleasure for anyone who appreciates a lovely sweet treat!
If the holidays or Christmas morning calls for a stack of waffles, pancakes or French toast, then they definitely call for any bottle of the Woodlife Ranch syrups. Because they’re all so good, it’s highly recommended to get the 5 Pack Maple Syrup Sampler set. With 4oz. each of the Golden, Amber, Dark, Bourbon Barrel-Aged and Applewood Smoked Maple Syrups wrapped nicely in a branded box, you’ll get a taste of heaven 5-times over. Or mix and match them over your breakfast for a customer flavor creation.
If syrups aren’t your thing, or you know someone who just loves honey, then picking up a jar of their Bourbon Aged Honey is a must. This special sweetener is aged in Williamstown, MA for at least 6 months, which gives it a unique flavor profile you can’t find anywhere but Woodlife Ranch.
