Made in California: Our April Favorites

Made in California: Our April Favorites

Two healthy locally made snacks (from Long Beach and Santa Barbara!), a California field guide to help you plan your summer adventures, and a relaxing bath bomb that smells amazing. This month, these are our top favorite products, and each one is made by a small local business in California.

This jerky is not only handsome, but delicious. It features a pure take on jerky, with tons of smoky peppery goodness. Made in Long Beach, this artisan jerky is made without gluten, nitrates, or artificial ingredients. We love it because it's such a great protein-packed snack!
