Wishing You a Sweet New Year!

January finds itself steeped in resolutions -- hopes, wishes, prohibitions in search of self-improvement. But we'd like to recommend a different take on the New Year's resolution: investing in a better morning, committing to starting each day on the right foot. With jam.

Our Jam Club offers a simple solution to the plague of dull mornings: 3 jars of jam, one jar each of our newest and most-loved flavors, every other month. With a 12-month membership, you could bribe yourself out of bed every day of 2012! Of course, we also offer a 6-month membership, which will still give you 9 different flavors to start the year off right!

Plus, if you purchase a 12-month Jam Club membership by the end of January, we'll give you a FREE additional flavor with your first shipment -- just enter NEWYEAR upon checkout!

A year full of the finest California fruit; what could be better?
