MAIL ORDER GIFT GUIDE: MICHIGAN SPECIALTY FOODS Detroit Free Press
Looking to give the gift of home this holiday season? Consider the delectable products, many handcrafted, in our own backyards.
From iconic coneys to pierogis to sustainable fish, you can gift the taste of our Mitten State. Many of these companies have been around for years. Sheryl McCleery, for example, has been churning out varieties of Tom’s Mom’s Cookies in Harbor Springs for 30 years. In fact, Tom’s Mom’s Peppermint Cookies will be featured Monday on the NBC’s “Today” show.
While you peruse this tasty list, keep in mind that most sites charge for shipping and have a cutoff date for products to arrive in time for the holidays.
