Fly Eagles Fly!
TBJ Gourmet and the Philadelphia Eagles have a delicious history together... our company was born at an Eagles Tailgate!
When Bruce Kramer, co-founder of TBJ Gourmet, accepted a challenge to have a cook-off with a fellow die-hard birds fan the scene was set for a tasty tangle. Each tailgater prepared their version of Jalapeño Poppers, a popular game time snack.
Bruce decided to create goat cheese stuffed poppers topped with Bacon Jam, a relatively new condiment to the rest of the football faithfuls. As you can imagine, these poppers won the cook-off and more importantly the hearts of the Philly Fans that managed to get their hands on one of those Bacon Jam Poppers.
"You need to make more of that and sell it!" someone shouted in excitement. And as the rest of the tailgate party quickly agreed, the beginnings of TBJ Gourmet were born!
5 years later here we are, cheering on the Eagles as they play the Minnesota Vikings for the Conference Championship!
