Kettlepop's commitment to quality ingredients and old-fashioned preparation make its product highly distinctive. Each Kettlepop kernel gets equal treatment in a patented, fire-burning kettle of their own design, and small batches ensure that every bag is fresh and evenly cooked. Sample a classic with a large bag of kettle corn ($8.95), their most popular concoction. Medium-sized appetites meet their matches with medium bags of cheese ($6.95) and caramel ($8.95) flavors. A small bag of chocolate drizzles ($6.95), kettle corn covered in dark and white chocolate, combines sweet and salty in a union as unexpected yet satisfying as popping bubble wrap in the bathtub. Tins of this versatile treat also make great gifts: a 3.5 gallon gift tin with a three-flavor combo shows popcorn-loving friends and enemies with braces exactly how you feel.
When people are ill, they usually either make a doctor's appointment or lie in bed and wait it out. Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy has created a third option. Visits to its stores, which are scattered across the western US, are more casual than a doctor's visit but less passive than bed rest. Each location's team of health experts, including credentialed pharmacists, naturopathic doctors, herbalists, nutritionists, and more, consult with customers?no appointment needed.
But Pharmaca aims to serve its customers every day, not just on sick days. Its stores have been drawing droves of clients since 2000, partly because they meet so many needs in just one spot. In addition to a full-service pharmacy, Pharmaca offers organic and food-based vitamins from MegaFood and New Chapter; professional-grade skin care and cosmetics from Jane Iredale, Sanitas, and Dr. Hauschka; and therapeutic-grade supplements from Metagenics and Thorne Research. Customers can also choose from an assortment of homeopathic remedies, herbal formulations, medical supplies, toiletries, gifts, and fair-trade chocolates.
In 1946, John Kinder opened his first meat market in the Bay Area town of San Pablo. More than 65 years later, Kinder continues to oversee daily operations at more than 15 neighborhood locations. He owes his continued success, in part, to the second- and third-generation family members who have leant their own tireless dedication to the company.
This dedication has certainly paid off. The Kinder family’s barbecue sauces, marinades, and rubs consistently take first-place ribbons from judges across the country and have earned the market a loyal following of cowboys and outlaws alike. In a 2008 article on what to order at Major League ballparks, the New York Times hailed the ball-tip steak sandwich and its "mess of Kinder's smoky-sweet sauce" as a much-welcome relief from the fried menu items at McAfee Coliseum. :m]]
