I haven't done an "Amish Amazon" in post in awhile. It's kind of fun to see what's out there, Amish-themed, in the world of Amazon. Most Amish don't order by Amazon, but note the word "most." There are some who do. They'll use a computer at the library or do it through a non-Amish friend. The 21st century has encroached upon traditional Amish life in so many ways. I think the core of Amish life and culture is still in tact but part of me does fear a 'death by a thousand cuts' scenario where so many traditions get chipped away one by one that the Amish might not be recognizable a generation or two from now. That said, the Amish control their own destiny and I'm sure they'll make the best decisions for themselves and their communities.
So, for fun, let's go down the Amish Amazon today (full disclosure, the links are "affiliate links" so, yeah, I get a small commission if you order any of these, but I'm doing this post more for fun and information than $)
Okay, let's start!
MENNONITE TIGER BUTTER FUDGE: Mmmmmm, the Mennonite Pantry is selling this bliss. Man, this looks good. I get too excited over stuff like this. Click here to read more about or order it.
AMISH CARAMEL CORN DRIZZLED WITH CHOCOLATE: Made in a copper kettle and drizzled with chocolate, man, I bet this is addictive! Click here.
AMISH CARAMEL PUFFIES: Lightly sweetened with brown sugar, these caramel puffies apparently make a great lunchbox snack. And,geez, probably a great snack any time. Candidly, not sure what makes this stuff "Amish", but I'm sure it's good! Click here to learn more and see these delicious-looking bags of bliss.
AMISH MONSTER COOKIES: Now, I AM sure what makes these Amish. These cookies, a classic Amish baked good, are made at Scherger's Kettle in Shipshewana, Indiana. They have Amish ladies working in their kitchen helping make the baked goods, so they're bringing with them generations of baking experience. Monster cookies are amazing and this is a great chance to get something authentic! Click here to see them and order some from Scherger's Kettle.
CREAM CHEESE BROWNIES: Man, this is another from Scherger's Kettle and, holy cow, these look and sound good. I really need to ramp up my running because then I could eat some of these things guilt-free. Check out these brownies.
Our friends at the Amish Buggy get these goods from Amish bakeries in Arthur, Illinois and,geez, this sounds good...a toasted onion mustard. Can you imagine dipping some pretzels in this? Or putting it on a sandwich? Click here to see.
