Mustards & Sauerkraut
Bratwurst and beer might be the stars of Oktoberfest, but don’t forget that mustard plays an important supporting role. To add that tangy kick to your brat, try Dulcet Mustards. Choose from Creole, Madras Curry or Moroccan flavors. For a traditional spicy-brown variety, try Kosciusko Mustard, which pairs perfectly with a big, bold kielbasa.
If you’d rather have sauerkraut with your sausage, try Barrel Sauerkraut, a traditional imported German variety.
The citizens of Munich, where the Bavarian tradition of Oktoberfest started in 1872, don’t declare the annual festival officially open until a keg of Spaten has been tapped. Kick off your own Oktoberfest celebration with a stein of this mahogany-colored brew, or try a thick and creamy Paulaner to get yourself in the spirit.
Banish the first signs of dry, dull skin this winter with the nourishing oils found in pumpkin extract. Try MyChelle’s Incredible Pumpkin Peel, MyChelle Pumpkin Renew Cream, and Essence Organics Repair Pumpkin Hand Cream for intense hydration.
Pumpkin facts from Dr. Liz
Pumpkins – they’re not just for carving. One cup of cooked pumpkin supplies more than 100 percent of the Daily Value for Vitamin A, Vitamin C and beta-carotene. Cook pumpkin as you would other winter squashes, and remember that mashed pumpkin stores well in the freezer.

One of our favorite things about fall is that delicious pumpkin is back in season. That means Nugget is full of delightful pumpkin goodies, including the popular pumpkin drinks in our coffee and juice bars! Each is made with real pumpkin pie filling; try a pumpkin latte, chai or freeze, or even a pumpkin milkshake for an extra-special indulgence.
Who knew that the father of our nation used to make beer out of pumpkins? Inspired by George Washington’s home-brewing efforts, the folks at Buffalo Bill’s created this one-of-a-kind ale. The original recipe called for a 40-pound pumpkin – proof that there is actually a use for those monster veggies we always see at the county fair.
