I love salsa… A good salsa has a nice bite to it and is perfect to add to any Mexican meal.
DREAMS AREN’T THIS GOOD salsa and tortilla chips, already found in select grocery stores throughout the New York City area, are now also available nationwide. Inspired by and infused with the sights and sounds of New York City, one-of-a-kind DATG salsa flavors include The Original, The Fighter (garlic cilantro), Just Dance (jalapeno pineapple), Now or Never (avocado pepper), and Girls Girls Girls (blueberry coconut). Focused on flavors, not heat levels, all salsa flavors and tortilla chips are gluten free, vegan and contain no preservatives.
“Between my upbringing in Southeast Texas and being a student at Louisiana State University (LSU), I started making salsa by mixing Mexican style with a little Cajun spice. As I experimented with different ingredients and flavors, the salsa was always a huge hit with everyone, and I knew I had something,” said DATG Founder Matt Bennett. “After traveling around the world and experiencing different cultures, I settled in New York City’s East Village and quickly discovered that the salsa selection on store shelves was limited and lacking in quality. So, I decided to start making my own salsa again, building a new type of brand in a space that is stale and DREAMS AREN’T THIS GOOD was born. Our flavors push boundaries with each one being its own experience. Hopefully, people find them as inspiring as we do when creating them.”
This was the perfect addition to my recent cooking endeavor. I made this amazing Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls from The Kitchn. I like the garlic bite in this salsa with the crispy thin tortilla chips with it.
DREAMS AREN’T THIS GOOD is currently available in stores throughout the tri-state area including Foodtown, Key Food, City Acres Market, Amish Market, Mekelburg’s, Brooklyn Harvest Market, Westside Market, Foragers, and more. For each jar or bag sold, DATG donates $.05 to partner philanthropies including Hunger Free America, MTV Staying Alive Foundation, The Center NYC, The Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless (ACE), Girl Up and LIFEbeat.
