The Best Things We’ve Bought Recently, From Tahini To Canned Trout
Stuff we (really) like right now.

A fun fact about us is that we spend an inappropriate amount of time shopping on the internet. And, seeing as how we write about food, our purchases tend to hover around that theme. This month, we’ve found an organic tahini that works for cooking, baking, and eating straight out of the jar, as well as a candle that smells like a near facsimile of a much more expensive one from a brand that people like to name drop. And if you need some good food-themed wall art, we have a suggestion for that as well.

Scroll on to shop the favorite things we bought this past month.

We’re recommending these products because we actually use, and like, them. Things you buy through our links may earn us a commission.

Seed + Mill Organic Tahini

“I bought this after seeing it recommended by the queen Samin Nosrat, and, of course, the queen was not wrong. I’ve used it to make hummus, salad dressings, tahini-caramel bars, and anything else I can think of. Also, I’ve been sneaking spoonfuls on its own. Don’t make the same mistake I did - skip buying the single jar and go straight to the three pack. I went through the first jar in two weeks.”

Ito En Jasmine Green Tea

“Light and refreshing (and definitely not too sweet), this is the perfect drink to keep stocked in the fridge. Break it out whenever a Los Angeles heat wave hits or when you’ve been sitting in sweats all day and can’t seem to change out of them.”

Flintts Mints

“These mints are designed to give your mouth a ‘pleasant electric sensation’, and it really is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before on my tongue. It’s like if Pop Rocks licked a battery. They also really make your mouth water, which is good if you suffer from dry mouth. I keep these on hand to wake up my tongue from time to time or give to friends so I can watch their confused reaction. It’s fun.”

Spam Art Print

“Buy your art from artists you like and follow on Instagram. That’s what I did with this print (from @artbyciara), and now I have a physical representation in my apartment of how much I love Spam musubi.”

OXO Good Grips Measuring Spoons

“These measuring spoons snap together with small magnets, eliminating the annoying plastic ring that I had to pry apart on my old set. Plus, they all nest flat neatly in a drawer, so I don’t have to worry about a crucial measurement disappearing into the void.”

Brooklinen Dusk Candle

“Look, I know Le Labo’s Santal 33 is basically a cliché at this point, but I love santal-based scents for my home. If it doesn’t smell like something’s about to burn down, I’m not interested. That said, Le Labo is not cheap, while this candle, Dusk by Brooklinen, is half the price. It smells almost identical, which I didn’t realize until a guest came over and made that connection. And unlike a really expensive candle, I have no shame in lighting this up and having it burn for a few hours to set a mood in my apartment.”

Scout Ontario Trout With Dill

“Having set a personal record for tuna consumption over the past year, you’d think I’d be tired of canned fish. But that fatigue never set in, and now that I’ve found Scout’s farm-raised Canadian rainbow trout, I just don’t see it happening. This trout isn’t tightly packed like tuna, so it has a delicate texture, and the flavor is perfectly complimented by an abundance of dill. Stock up, and make a fancy brunch, serve some hors d’oeuvres, or follow my lead and eat it out of the can on your couch.”

Strawberry Milk Carton Pet Bed

“I can simply not get my cat out of her new milk carton bed. She’s like a moody teenager. Normally, it takes her (name: Potato) a few days to warm up to a new bed, but she crawled in here within minutes of it hitting the floor. It certainly looks cozy, and it’s also obnoxiously adorable to see her napping inside a little milk carton.”

The Basement Food Court of Forking Paths

“This cute little zine is an excerpt of Search History, a novel in progress by Eugene Lim. Inside, you’ll find a wild journey of detailed descriptions of Chinese lamien, future tech, and a story about regret and loss that will probably/maybe/definitely leave you in tears.”
