2019 Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City Roundup

By: Finance Foodie

It's that time of the year again - a gathering of fine food purveyors from all over the world descending on the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan for the 2019 Specialty Food Association's Summer Fancy Food Show!
During this three day event, we saw (and obviously tasted) thousands of food items - here are some of the highlights - from sweet to savory!


In the mood for whiskey and coffee? Luckily Jack Daniel's can come to the rescue with their Tennessee Whiskey infused coffee beans. Sounds like a dangerous combo, but it somehow works.

Coffee Beans
I'm from Texas and tamales are a staple down there. The Texas Tamale Company's line of frozen gourmet tamales are perfect for whenever that craving hits. Just steam and eat!

The Keto diet is all the rage these days, but you don't have to give up "forbidden" favorites like ice cream because the Keto Pint's low carb ice cream has got you covered!
Ice Cream
Want to make a PB&J (or AB&J) sandwich on the run? Just use Split's portable nut butter and jam pack for a quick meal or snack on the run.
Cauliflower as a replacement for flour was the trend last year (and still ever so popular), but I would say this is the year of the chickpea. Biena's plant based puff snack has all the crunch and flavor of chips, but less calories and a 7 grams of plant protein per serving!
Salty Snacks
And of course, no fancy food event is complete without some high quality jamón (served at several stations around the show) - yum yum and oink oink, get in my belly!

It's a Meat Feast: Boston Market's New Rotisserie Brisket and Prime Rib

By: Finance Foodie

Growing up, Boston Market was known as my spot for some juicy and tender rotisserie chicken (plus all the fabulous fixings on the side, especially that to-die-for cornbread). But now I hear they have expanded their offerings to the other white meat - beef!

Best Non-ChexSystems Bank Accounts 2019

By: Finance Foodie, in Partnership with ChexSystems

There are banks who do not allow customers that have been banned from other financial institutions to deposit or make savings with them. You may wonder how they get to detect such people. Banks make use of chexsystem to track the checking history of account applicants. Most records stay very long on the ChexSystem and it is quite impossible to go without a savings or a checking account for a very long period of time.
But there are still reputable banks that do not use ChexSystems to qualify their customers. There are some that will still run the records but offer you second chance banking.
There are several options available for you to choose from and they all have their different perks. The following are some of the best kind of accounts operated by these banks.
