Jam Giveaway!

in Giveaway


Okay, so there are a whole lot of cool people in LA. Sometimes I feel as though I live in the Mecca of hipness. Not that I am wallowing in a lack of self-esteem, but I know that I am not one of these people.

For example, I am definitely not cool enough to go to an amusement park in full make-up and stiletto high heels. I just don’t think that I could wipe off the sweaty mascara streaks as well as those 16 year olds do. I’m also definitely not cool enough to wear sunglasses at night, because no matter how hard I try I will never look smooth when I bump into things. Apparently there are a lot of guys in West Hollywood that have mastered this.


You know what I am cool enough to do? Make fig-cinnamon jam. It may not be as cool as bumping into things, but it’s still pretty awesome. I’m also cool enough to give some away. Oh yes, Adrianna & I saved a jar just for you all. Because we think you’re pretty cool too. So here’s the deal, leave us a comment below about why you’re cool enough to get this jam and at 8:00pm (Pacific Time) on Tuesday, Oct. 6th we will randomly select a winner and announce it on Wednesday.   If you don’t think you’re that cool but still want some jam, just say “Hi” and you’ll still be entered. If you win, we’ll send you a free jar of our fig-cinnamon jam. Please only leave one comment per person, and don’t be worried if you’re comment doesn’t immediately appear. Good luck!

I think that I am cool enough to recieve fig jam because my middle name is Fig. Actually, its Figatherine. Actually it’s just Catherine. Dammit.

Ok…so I think I should win just so I can taste something you have created!! No, really I just processed around 15 gallons myself and would love to try something figgy that I didn’t make!! Peace, Love and Jam! Kaye

I’m cool enough because you won’t have to waste money on shipping — just bring it on Wednesday night!! (and because you know how gays love them some jam)

Pick me pick me!!

You are, too, cool…



Catherine October 5, 2009 at 12:38 pm

I am the coolest of the coolest! I am so cool that there are jars of Jam right now giving reasons why they are cool enough to spend a day with me! Take that Night Sunglass wearing, in costume falling over Hipsters!!!

I know I am not cool. But I do love the fact that there is room in this big city for less-cool-folk, too. And for people who bake and read books and shop at the farmer’s market early in the morning, looking QUITE un-cool and still quite happy and content. Oh, and I’d love to try your jam. ;-)

oh oh and whats that song “i wear my sunglasses at night so i can …” yes! that song! it gets stuck in my head, but that’s all i know of it!

what i do know is that i would love your fig jam :)


Aimee October 6, 2009 at 9:40 am

I have never tried fig jam and maybe therefore I would become cool after trying the jam. The pictures are gorgeous:)

Hi! I’m not so cool (although I do enjoy jam-making), but I’d love to give fig cinnamon jam a try on my toast in the morning!

I hear that fig-jam calling my name, so I must be so incredibly cool, that even jam wants to be near me…
I knew I was cool (well, slightly at least, for I can wear high-heels and never wear dark glasses without sunshine – the real sign of collness, methinks), but I never knew I had it in me to be that cool! :D


Rob October 6, 2009 at 1:36 pm

Alright -Im so cool I dont even care if i get this jam. Im so cool I dont even want it. I dont want anything. Ever -things just come to me. And I NEVER take off my sunglasses. Which are bright fucking pink.

I’m cool enough because I scoured the farmers market in San Diego this weekend looking for the last of the good, deep, dark , deluscious figs to make some jam of my own but all I found was the light greenies which we all know, well any girl worth her fig knows, are not as sweet and a touch watery. So … I am a fig lover and I will place our jam in it’s rightful place … atop a divine water cracker with a slice of Black River Gorgonzola cheese.

You may take me outof the running for your jam because you already sent me some and it is great!!!


Erin October 6, 2009 at 11:20 pm

Okay…so I might have missed deadline. However, I know you think I’m cool enough to consider sending me some anyway!!!!

It may be too complex and very far-reaching for me. I am looking forward for your next publication, and I am going to try to get it! Really the submission is spreading its wings quickly, hunting for it…
