To the moon … cheese:  It’s not cheap, but it is crunchy and out-of-this-world tasty, so treat a loved one (or yourself) to some delicious moon cheese.  You can pick from cheddar, pepper jack, gouda, or mozzarella, and each bite satisfies snack cravings without boosting BGs.

Artisan salt:  Gourmet salts taste amazing, add some zing to your zoodles, and the packaging is so cute that these little containers look like holiday decorations all on their own.  This gift pack is perfect for a gift exchange or as a stocking stuffer for the foodie in your family.
