10 Things We Love: Made in Arizona

10 Things We Love: Made in Arizona

Arizona residents love their locally made food products and beverages (they love their beer and brownies!). It was difficult to pick just 10 of the best things made in Arizona, but we managed to narrow the list down to our favorites. Did we leave out yours? Let us know in the comments below!

Stuff We Love, Made in Arizona

Lanternland Lighting

Lanternland is an American manufacturer of high quality handcrafted copper and brass lanterns and outdoor lighting. If you are on the hunt for an outdoor pendant light, ceiling light, barn light, wall sconce, wall light or post light, than Lanternland should be your first place to look. Each lighting piece is handmade to order in the Mesa, Arizona factory with buyers choice of finish and glass. Lanternland lighting fixtures will withstand any outdoor environment including waterfronts and wet climates as  the natural finishes don’t rust or peel, only form a natural patina over time.  If you are ever in the Mesa area, stop by the factory for a visit!

Queen Creek Olive Oil

Many Arizonans claim that when they visit friends and family in other states, they are asked to bring with them samples from the Queen Creek Olive Mill. From their sustainable farm, the Mill produces Arizona’s only extra virgin olive oil. They also sell an assortment of flavored olive oils, including Mexican lime, roasted garlic, vanilla bean, and Meyer lemon.

Fairytale Brownies

In the brownie business for over 20 years, Fairytale Brownies has become a favorite sweet spot for Arizonans. No two brownies look exactly alike, because each topping is carefully sprinkled or swirled by hand. They also sell cookies and “Fairytale Truffles,” fudgy brownies gently enrobed in rich, 60% Callebaut dark chocolate.

Arroyo Vodka

Arroyo Vodka is the first Phoenix, Arizona, based vodka distillery. After going through an intensive filtering process and distilled twice, Arroyo is impeccably smooth and easy to drink. In addition to using regional ingredients to create flavored vodkas, Arroyo also distills BB’s Apple Pye, an apple pie flavored liqueur.

Poore Brothers Chips

Poore Brothers has been manufacturing kettle cooked chips in the USA since the 1980s. Today, they manufacture the TGI Fridays line of chips as well.

Everywhere you look across Arizona, it seems that a new brewpub has popped up. And it’s not amateur stuff, folks. Fan favorite Four Peaks Brewing Company, based in Tempe, offers a wide variety of brews, including their award-winning flagship beer Kilt Lifter, a Scottish style ale. Other great breweries include SanTan Brewing in Chandler, Prescott Brewing Company, and Nimbus Brewing Company in Tucson.

Sweet Republic Ice Cream

If you mention Sweet Republic to an Arizonian, he will likely start to drool thinking about this artisanal ice cream maker. Starting with milk and cream from independent Arizona dairy farms, Sweet Republic only uses the best ingredients to create their tasty treats. They also take from other local Arizona ingredients to produce creative flavors, such as real mint chip, honey blue cheese, and basil lime sorbet.
