Readers sniff out Kitchen Bouquet

There’s something about food and the holidays. The season definitely seems to rekindle a desire to revive family traditions; hence the holiday-related requests this week. And, for those looking for help making gravy for their holiday dinners, responses to a request from reader Ray Fogarty.

Stephanie L. Hill and Debbie Caponera found Kitchen Bouquet at Smith’s at 850 S. Rancho Drive and 10100 W. Tropicana Ave. (where Caponera said it’s with the marinades) and Ray Moreton found it at Smart & Final, Ann Marie found Gravy Master at Albertsons, and Diane Terrano and Tina VanRyne found both Kitchen Bouquet and Gravy Master at Albertsons (where Terrano said they’re in the aisle with the gravies). …

For Gil and Dolores Sawyer, who are looking for large bags of sugar-free hard candy, Judi Caro suggested a trip to the Death Valley Nut and Candy Co. at 900 E. Highway 95 in Beatty.
