Wine + Jelly = Cabernet For Breakfast

You love wine, but what you don't love is the judgmental commentary from your friends when you suggest having a glass before 10 a.m. Well, good news for winos everywhere: you can slather some wine jelly on a piece of toast, satisfying both your desire for alcohol at inappropriate hours and your craving for delicious breakfast treats. Everybody wins!

Wine jelly comes in four different varieties, in sets of sweet or savory. Each jar is handcrafted in Vermont by simmering wine with fruit to create a unique blend of flavors. The savory options include a Cracked Pepper Cabernet and a Rosemary Garlic Chablis. The creator recommends pairing the former with a sharp cheddar, and using the latter to caramelize potatoes. 

The sweeter options are a Spiced Wine and a Burgundy Anise, which have notes of cinnamon and licorice, respectively.  

Each jar can be yours for $7, which seems more than fair considering you now have the power to stuff delicious wine-covered cookies in your mouth for breakfast.
