Green Mountain Mustard: A Little Taste of Vermont No Matter Where You May Be!

Last week I had the honor of hosting holiday dinner for my family.  I always like to have something for my guests to nibble on while I am putting the finishing touches on dinner.  I decided to put out some of the Green Mountain Mustard: Horseradish Flavor with some assorted things to dip.

Wow!  The reaction was overwhelmingly positive!  My guests loved the bite of the horseradish and could not get over the creamy taste.  That's because they use Vermont Eggs, Maple Syrup, and Cabot Butter in every mustard variety!

Check out the ingredients:

The website is pretty cool and has a some very interesting information about the company itself that I want to share with you:
Mission and Values

A business should be founded on values that are constantly acted out. We're not different. Here is a little bit about what we value and our mission in life.

Food builds community - both yours & mine

We have started food companies previously, but we lacked a social mission. We’ve started fresh and incorporated a social mission into our delectable spreads. Food is the driver of many community events, and we’re no exception. Here are just two ways we’re helping out:

-We support our local friends, family, and business owners

Helping out is one of our passions. Whether it’s buying eggs locally, sourcing maple syrup from ten minutes away, sponsoring a Little League team, or working with local restaurants on new product development, we are involved in the community.

-We teach high school students about entrepreneurship

At the ripe age of 15, Michael started selling cookies on the sidewalk in downtown Richmond, Vermont. Following this experience, he caught the entrepreneurial bug, and has been making an active effort with students in area schools to help them pursue their dreams and start their own business while they are still young. Michael works with entrepreneurship classes and summer camps to make a difference in the lives of students and offers free consulting should students want to start their own business.

Take a look st some of the other varieties they offer:

Sweet Hot
Maple Wholegrain
Sweet Mild
and of course the Horseradish that I tried

You can Like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter!

At only $5.00 for a jar you can afford to pick up a few to keep on hand for when you have a get-together just like mine!
