Just like regular soda, somewhere along the line ketchup — even name brand stuff like Heinz — went from being natural mixes to scary, high fructose corn syrup-filled goo. Sir Kensington's Gourmet Scooping Ketchup ($7) is out to rectify this situation, with two recipes (original and spiced) containing high-quality, all natural ingredients, and with a taste so refined that it demands to be scooped, not poured, squeezed, or shot out of a Super Soaker.
With a name like Chocomize ($6), you might think about a service that lets you customize your chocolate bars. And you'd be correct. Pick your chocolate bark base and add more than 100 different kinds of fruits, nuts, herbs, and candies, or simply select from one of the company's best-selling bars, like the Smores Bar with graham teddies and mini-marshmallows, the Candy Bar with gummi bears, chocolate candy, and Nerds, or the Spicy Special Bar with black peppercorns, mini chipotles, and cayenne pepper.
Made using organic amber maple syrup, this sweet concoction will take your breakfast to the next level. The syrup is aged in a craft distillery bourbon barrel for a minimum of six months for an added boost that's as welcome in a cocktail as it is covering a short stack. The syrup arrives packaged in a clear glass bottle with a heavy base and is capped with a synthetic cork with a wooden top.

Specially selected for its robust qualities, Grill Honey ($12) is ready to take on the flames at your next BBQ. It's 100% pure raw and KSA Kosher Certified, and is a great way to add a little sweet zing to your grilled meat, poultry, seafood, or vegetable dishes, without the need for heavy, artificial spreads or marinades.
Aside from Elvis, BBQ is arguably Memphis' most famous export, and you won't find a better example than Corky's BBQ ($15-$270). This Mid-South staple is available online in sauce form, but if you're wanting to skip the cooking and go straight to chowing down, you can order ready to reheat ribs, chicken, pork, or beef, either by itself or accompanied by beans and even pecan pies. No word on whether bibs are also included, but you might want some around just in case.
Protecting your property shouldn't involve drilling holes and running wires. The Simplisafe Home Security System requires none of the above, and is easy to install yourself. It starts with a base station that connects to their service via WiFi with a backup cellular connection for emergencies. You can arm and disarm it from the keypad, with a key fob, or with your phone. Add on as many entry, motion, smoke, glass break, and CO sensors as you need — the system is easily expandable to fit your needs, and comes with the assurance of 24/7 monitoring.

Inspired by one of the most iconic military timepieces ever created, the Pilot Pioneer is a reinterpretation with real character. The mechanical hand-wound watch takes cues from the legendary Hamilton W10, a watch produced for the British Royal Air Force in 1973 and carries with it the form and function that made it memorable. Each timepiece features a black textured dial that's as easy to read as it was for pilots in the 70's, with luminous sword hands and numerals. It also has a sleek vintage-inspired case that integrates seamlessly into the lugs for added comfort. The new release also adds hardened mineral crystal with double anti-reflective coating for an extra layer of toughness. The Pilot Pioneer is powered by the H-50 hand-winding movement with 80 hours of power reserve and is finished with your choice of a gray textile or brown leather NATO strap.

If you're thinking this is some highly processed, find-it-at-7-Eleven sort of snack, think again. Bacon Moon Pies ($33/4 pies) are expertly produced savory treats made using high-quality bacon sourced from CA to create a traditional Scottish shortbread with rice flour, bacon fat and bacon cracklin. In between is a marshmallow made from Vermont maple syrup and high-quality bourbon, along with a bacon fat and cracklin caramel, all of which gets encased in 72% dark chocolate. Just try not to eat all four in one sitting, lest you literally begin to embody the phrase "you are what you eat."
No, that's not a euphemism for your expanding, bacon-filled waistline, nor a pork-fueled early morning blowout on the porcelain. Instead, the Bacon Explosion ($30) is something much worse — yet so much better at the same time. Simply put, it's a bacon-stuffed, bacon-wrapped Italian sausage, covered in Kansas City-style barbecue sauce and rub, and cooked to perfection before being shipped straight to your door. If that sounds like too little work for you, full instructions are available online, that call for no less than four pounds of pig. Enjoy. [Thanks, Jason]
