In addition, rose gold is AOP Côtes de Provence, a French legal term for grapes grown in Provence. Rose gold grades, including the latest vintage, are currently available in 250 restaurants and stores across Texas and can be found in retail stores at Randall’s.

Does your dog insist on eating insects when you’re not looking? If so, you might already have a taste for Austin’s newest hypoallergenic, friendly pet food company. Neo Bites. Neo Bites dog foods and treats were developed in collaboration with a board certified nutritionist and are made locally in small quantities with a unique main ingredient – crickets. Although it may seem so far out, such creepy crawly animals are actually great dog food. Crickets contain all 10 essential amino acids, as many omega-3 fatty acids as salmon, more vitamin B12 than salmon, and more calcium than a glass of milk. In addition, Niobites dog food is environmentally friendly. “While fresh recipes made with traditional meats like beef or chicken are great for our dogs, they are extremely unsustainable sources of protein that are terrible for the planet,” said Wesley Cooper, founder of Neo Bites. Adventurous puppy owners can find Neo Bites nationwide. Austinites can purchase Neo Bites goodies at two local pet stores: Great Outdogs (1210 Barton Springs Rd.) And Prime Pet (2400 E Cesar Chavez St. Ste. 102).
