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.
Not everyone wants to break in their jeans. And for a shortcut to comfort, the 4-way stretch jeans from Mott & Bow are an excellent choice. While most pairs of jeans stretch horizontally over time, Broome jeans from Mott & Bow stretch both horizontally and vertically. These jeans were introduced more than a year ago and sold out on two separate occasions. Now, after a year-long wait, they are finally back and available in Dark Blue or Medium. As always Mott & Bow will ship two waist sizes at no extra charge to make sure you get the right fit — just send back the pair that doesn't fit at no additional cost.

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.

After nearly a century of setting the standard in bootmaking, Viberg has entered the sneaker game. The only sneaker made entirely in Canada and the result of years of studying Nike and the Jordan Brand, they feature a silhouette that draws inspiration from classic athletic footwear from the 1980s and 90s. Each pair is built upon a Vibram Sphike RGS sole that you'd typically only find on a rugged hiking shoe. This robust foundation not only provides comfort but also gives you the best traction we've ever seen in a sneaker. The upper is lined with contrasting Italian horsehide panels and supported by soft padding at the tongue and collar, a heavyweight leather insole — the same one used on their boots — and a removable leather footbed. Available in black or white, each pair is finished with custom linen laces from Italy and use Viberg's #1003 Last.

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]
