Penguin-Cork-Flip-Flop

Products that involve wood are fascinating. It doesn’t have to be a desk or a table, it can be a jump drive, or an ipod dock or even a piece of art. Wood grain is visually appealing to us because of its natural qualities and the fact you get lost in it. And while we’re on board with all the products we just mentioned, we’re not slipping into a pair of clogs when we want to get comfortable… or, well, ever. Wooden shoes suck, but that doesn’t make us want that grain affect for our shoes any less. Enter the Penguin Cork Flip Flop. Ok, ok, it’s not exactly wood grain, but it’s probably as close as we’ll ever get and still be comfortable. Soft, squishy flip-flops that can take a bit of a beating (there’s some rubber in addition to the cork) and still look good. Yeah, we said it. Flip flops that look good.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
