True Jamaican Rum Cakes Will Lift Anyone’s Polar Vortex Spirits

PolarIf you live in the United States, you probably noticed it was a little chilly throughout most of the country last week! The weather looks like it’ll only get colder in many states from this point until spring.

Here at Wicked Jack’s Tavern, we like to think of ourselves as optimists. Instead of being bitter from the freezing temperatures of the polar vortex, we see the cold days ahead as perfect opportunities for cozy moments spent indoors around fireplaces. When the cold hits, snuggle up with your loved ones and a True Jamaican Rum Cake. While everyone rushes to pick up eggs, bread and milk from the nearest grocery store, you’ll be nice and warm with a rich rum cake and plenty of smiles.

Don’t Let Your New Year Resolutions Become Half-Baked Ideas!

PIEJanuary has only just begun, which means New Year’s Resolutions are still fresh in our minds. It seems the most popular resolutions are health related—whether it’s going to the gym more often or simply eating better.

At Wicked Jack’s Tavern, we know sticking to a healthy regime is really difficult when there are so many mouth-watering temptations. And America’s newest obsession with video streaming services tells us the couch is way more comfortable than the treadmill. To avoid starting 2015 with egg on your face, we are here to help you to achieve that healthy goal.

Who ever said eating smart and eating happy couldn’t be the same thing? If your New Year’s Resolution is to go gluten free, then enjoy our award-winning Gluten-Free Butter Rum Cake! This rum cake features all the delicious and fulfilling tastes you’ve come to love in a True Jamaican Rum Cake—with none of the gluten.

Our Gluten-Free Butter Rum Cake and many other Wicked Jack’s products are available in both the Aroma Ridge web store and on Amazon.com.

Wicked Jacks Offers Cake for Any Appetite

The average American can gain as much as 10 pounds during the December holiday season. With more attention than ever on healthy living, Wicked Jack’s Tavern is offering a gluten-free dessert option this year—a butter rum cake!

A gluten-free diet excludes a protein composite found in wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. Gluten causes health problems in sufferers of celiac disease (CD) or people with a wheat allergy. Many healthy eaters also believe a gluten-free diet can be attributed to weight loss.

Wicked Jack’s Tavern has been awarded a blue ribbon for being the Best of Atlanta in the Lifestyle/Natural Gluten-Free category. This distinction, designed to celebrate gourmet food products, was awarded at the annual Atlanta Gourmet Market, a temporary, three-day showroom open in mid September.

December Gives Us Many Reasons to Celebrate

Add a Wicked Jack’s Tavern rum cake to any holiday celebration!

This year, Hanukkah, or the Festival of Lights, ends on Dec. 24. This Jewish observance includes lighting a menorah for eight days to commemorate the survival of Judaism.

On Dec. 25, Christmas Day involves special church services and masses to celebrate the birth of Christ and the story of the Nativity. This holiday is combined with many secular winter celebrations, like decorating evergreen bushes and trees to symbolize everlasting light around the winter solstice.

happy holidays

Kwanzaa, a weeklong holiday from Dec. 26-Jan. 1, honors African culture, including the ceremonial colors of red, green and black. First celebrated in 1966, Kwanzaa includes music performances, ending with a feast and gifts.

On Dec. 26, Boxing Day is observed in Europe, Canada, Jamaica, Australia and parts of Asia. Boxing Day started as the day servants would receive a “Christmas box” from their bosses, filled with food, money bonuses and gifts. Now it is known as a day to give back to those in need. It is also a shopping day with large discounts, much like the American “Black Friday” following Thanksgiving Day.

 

Gift a Treat People Want to Eat

A Delish.com poll found “38% of people give away their fruitcakes instead of eating them.” With some fruitcakes lasting two to three months without refrigeration, these indigestible, blocks of cake are regifted and passed from one family to the next. How about this year giving people a treat they want to eat?

In honor of Free Shipping Day on December 18, Wicked Jack’s Tavern is reminding everyone there is still time to order one of our scrumptious rum cakes for delivery by Christmas Day. Get free two-day delivery through Amazon Prime while supplies last and your favorite flavor is in stock!

Hot Chocolate on a Cold Winter’s Day

December 13 is National Cocoa Day. What better way to celebrate than with a chocolate rum cake?

Until the 19th century, hot chocolate was used as medicine to treat stomach ailments, relying on the digestive properties of the cocoa bean. Now, in America hot chocolate is best known as an instant drink topped with marshmallows.

At Wicked Jack’s Tavern, we take our hot chocolate one step further, pairing a hot mug with a slice of rum cake. Our rich cake is made with milk chocolate chips then soaked in the finest Jamaican rum.

Make Your Holiday Gathering a Rum-Soaked Affair

Most Americans attend a holiday party during December. In fact, many people attend multiple holiday parties organized by friends, family, coworkers, neighbors and school associations. And another batch of lucky holiday enthusiasts are the ones responsible for planning and hosting the holiday affairs.

Don’t be that guest who comes empty handed. Bring something more sophisticated than your own baking will allow, and more unique than a package of sugar cookies from the grocery store. Even if your “tradition” is bringing a bottle of wine, spice up the party with a rum theme.

Don’t believe these rum-filled customers, read a recent product review of our new gluten-free rum cake by Jennifer Harris with the Gwinnett Gluten-Free Food Examiner. “The cake is moist and vanilla flavored with a rum soaked glaze that transports one to Jamaica with every bite.
