Fat Toad Farm's Spicy Dark Chocolate Goat's Milk Caramel made my day!

When the package arrived, the Backyard Safari team insisted that I immediately go and buy ice cream, so that we could try it :)



Oh my delicious...a fabulous combination of not- too-sweet, spicy and gooey! Amazing on vanilla ice cream. It is truly the tastiest caramel sauce that I have ever had. I could (and did) eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon...yum!

I also discovered the next morning that it makes an AWESOME Latte...

Fresh, local goat's milk is the primary ingredient in their award winning Goats Milk Caramel Sauces. The combination of rich, creamy goat's milk and pure cane sugar is what creates such extraordinary flavor. All of their caramel sauces are hand crafted, in small batches, on their family farm in Brookfield, Vermont using all-natural ingredients.

Welcome to Peggy's Backyard! February 21 2017, 1 Comment

Hmmm....Let me tell you a little about myself. I'm Peggy! And I confess that I am hopelessly addicted to spicy foods!

I've been married for 19 years to my wonderful husband, Sean, who for some reason, does not seem to share my glorious passion for all that is spicy :)

Sean and I met while working at Wal-Mart. We dated for 4 months before getting engaged and then married the following year in 1997.

We have a beautiful 6 year old daughter who loves dance and gymnastics.




I have been with Backyard Safari for almost 3 years and I love it!  I could not ask for better people to work for and with. I really enjoy going to work. And we have the nicest customers!



I love anything Hot & Spicy. The hotter the better! I will be sharing with you, some of my very favorite finds, from across the country ~

My very first,  amazingly deliciously hot and crunchy find, happened a few months ago...I was wandering the foodie aisles at AmericasMart and came across a company from Texas named Cin Chili & Co. and tried their Passion Pickles (GHOST PEPPER PICKLES ) WOW!!! My taste buds did a little happy dance!

They are super crunchy and a little sweet, with (POW!) some explosive heat!

Totally addictive!!  I could absolutely eat the entire jar in one sitting!

So I ordered some for you to try...Let me know what you think :)

Your taste buds will thank me later ~ Enjoy!
