Milk: Our PICS milk is bottled in New York with the help of over 500 Northeast dairy farmers: When you take home a jug of our milk, you’re taking home the product of hard-working local farmers (and cows) from our region. Located in Hudson Falls, NY, Ideal Dairy Farms is a great local dairy farm. These folks are just a few miles down the road from our Fort Edward store. Ideal Dairy first began selling milk to local residents around 1908. These days they produce over 16,000 gallons of milk per day! Despite operating for over 100 years, the vision of Ideal Dairy has remained unchanged: they’re committed to the production of quality milk for their community.
Granola: Every batch of PICS granola is hand made in Schenectady, New York. Made with the finest ingredients using artisanal baking techniques, this granola will soon be your go-to granola. Snack on it plain, add milk, top your ice cream with it – no matter how you use it, you will enjoy every bite!
Maple Syrup: We live in one of the only regions in the world with the ideal climate for maple agriculture, and we’re proud to partner with a wide variety of local maple farmers and producers here in the Northeast, who are currently preparing for this year’s maple sugaring season.
These are just a few of the wide variety of local products available in our stores. You can find many more homegrown PICS items on our shelves. Featured in our ad this week are PICS cottage cheese and eggs, two of our go-to locally made items.

New Items: Kodiak Cakes Chewy Crunchy Granola
Afternoon snack cravings are a feeling we all know too well and don’t always know what to do with. You’ve already eaten lunch, but it seems like forever until dinner —so you know you need something to eat in-between. The only problem is, nothing sounds satisfying. Finding smart snacks to satisfy your cravings can be difficult sometimes, but luckily you don’t have to sacrifice great taste for healthier options
Kodiak is here to make it easier, with their NEW Chewy and Crunchy Granola Bars. Made with 100% whole grain ingredients, protein and fiber to help satisfy your hunger and keep you full until dinnertime. Kodiak Chewy bars offer 7 grams of protein per serving, and if crunchy is your preference you can get 10 grams of protein per serving.
Two nutritional components to look for when it comes to smart snacking are protein and whole grains. Protein helps our bodies build and repair muscle tissue and helps you feel fuller, longer. This is partly because protein reduces your body’s level of the hunger hormone, ghrelin, and boosts levels ofpeptide YY, a hormone that makes you feel full.
Whole grains are important because they contain all three parts of a grain: the bran, endosperm, and the germ. Among the many nutritional benefits of eating a whole grain snack is increased amounts of fiber. Fiber is not only important for keeping your digestive system clean but can also help increase that full, satisfying feeling you want from eating a snack. These Kodiak bars offer up a chewy, or crunchy, delicious and balanced option when it comes to snacks for hungry folks of all ages.
