Stock Up: 3 products for Atlanta food lovers

From fiery handmade jerky to a zinger of a ginger snack, here is what we’re filling our shopping cart with right now.

Bare Ginger Spiced with Galangal

If there’s such a thing as an adult gummy bear, it might just be these bites of candied ginger from local specialty food producer Verdant Kitchen. Each little square offers a burst of warm ginger with a pepper kick coming from a coating of galangal, aka Thai ginger, that's grown on an organic farm in Savannah. $8.99 per 4-ounce package. Available online and at the following stores:

Buford Highway Farmers Market, 5600 Buford Hwy. NE, Atlanta, 770-455-0770,

Star Provisions, 1198 Howell Mill Road NW, Atlanta, 404-365-0410,

The Local Exchange, 130 South Park Square, Marietta, 770-794-3136,


White Lily Wheat & Almond Flour

We’re heading into prime baking season, which means it’s time to stock up on flour. We’ve come to depend on Southern staple White Lily, and its newest blend, Wheat & Almond Flour, lends a lovely nutty flavor and nice texture to quick breads, pies and cookies. What’s more, it can replace traditional all-purpose flour cup-for-cup. What makes us even happier? A code on the package lets us trace the domestic wheat to the exact farm where it was grown. $7.99, per 2-pound package. Available at area Kroger locations,


Ghost Jerky

We’ll pass on jerky that tastes like dry leather. The small-batch jerky from Atlanta-based Ghost Jerky offers the texture of tender steak and in flavors that satisfy our love of serious spice. We’re especially loving the added heat of ghost pepper on the terikayi and Korean barbecue versions. $10 per 2.5-ounce package. Order online at .
