2016 Editors' Picks Food i nglehoffer Ghost Pepper Mustard $3.49-$3.99 beavertonfoods.com Heat is at or near the top of the list of the hottest food trends, and few flavors are more sinister than ghost pepper. Beaverton Foods' Inglehoffer brand, known for its mustards and horseradish sauces, harnesses this Stygian chili to spike its newest mustard. The blend soothes the Scovilles somewhat, but still packs a wallop, delivering good flavor, not just pain. Available in shelf-stable squeeze bottles, this mustard will add punch to darn near everything you put it on. k ahiki Bowl & r oll $3.99 www.kahiki.com This great meal solution gives the consumer a little something extra. According to Kahiki, 76 percent of consumers serve an appetizer or side dish with an Asian meal. So Kahiki answered the call by adding an egg roll to an entrée bowl and voilà, a complete meal. It requires a few extra steps in prep — the bowl and roll require different cooking times in the microwave — but you're off and running in about five minutes. We liked the Chicken Pad Thai with Vegetable Egg Roll; the line also comes in General Tso's Chicken with Chicken Egg Roll, as well as Szechuan Pepper Steak, Sesame Ginger Chicken or Chicken Fried Rice with Vegetable Egg Roll.
