Michele’s Syrup has been around for a while. I can remember my mother buying this or ordering some years ago and I had honestly forgotten about it until this past summer when brands started looking at their names and designs (aunt Jemima). Michele’s has been found on and off in stores but thankfully today, you can always find what you need on the internet.
Nana Foods isn’t a one trick pony. This black owned consumer packaged goods company has the portfolio to make your regular shopping a lot easier. We could talk about their sauces and marinades, but now is all about breakfast. Get started with their Banana Nutmeg pancake mix and try one of their tea varieties instead of coffee to wash it down. Nana foods is working to change the way we eat daily.
Blanket Pancakes and Syrup was created in is the creation of Marquita and Deven Carter who’s desire was to share their family’s recipe with the world. Now they offer up their natural and preservative free pancake mixes in 3 flavors and a gluten-free variety. Along with those are also 3 syrup varieties which will allow you to bring some diversity to your morning routine.
Everyone isn’t a fan of grits but I am especially when they are made right. Southern Queen Foods is here to get you right with authentic southern grits that you can eat with breakfast or with your fancy shrimp and grits dinner.
One of my favorite brands that I have sampled is Vicky’s Cakes Pancake Mix. This Dallas based Black owned Brand has over half a dozen different premium mixes for your enjoyment. From Butter Pecan to Banana Pudding, Vicky’s recipes and flavors can make you smile.
Flatbush Granola isn’t just made to help you eat healthier. Creator Tracey Soloman got started on a journey in the early 2000’s when she sampled some granola at a West Coast store. She wasn’t able to satisfy her cravings until learning how to maker her own years later from a friend in Hawaii. Upon returning to Brooklyn, she began making her own and it was so good that she had to share and end up selling it. Now you can benefit and find her at Farmer’s markets in her area or order online.
If you’re on the move and maybe only have time for toast and butter, or a bagel, or an English muffin, all would be great when topped with the Honey Apple Butter from Kyvan Foods. Yes, you can get just about everything from this food company founded by former NFL player Reggie Kelly. Even if you have the time to take for your breakfast, this Apple Butter will make the rest of your breakfast stand out even more.
