YOUR LIVING ROOM, Dec. 2020 /HalcyonTV/ -- If you're in for a simpler form of merrymaking this holiday season, longtime friends Nick Offerman and Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky have you covered. In the newest holiday spot in the 'Lagavulin: My Tales of Whisky' series, Nick Offerman shares how you can have a perfectly good holiday at home, free from endless screen time and new-fangled internet media, despite these unprecedented times.
"A Dram Good Holiday" reveals Nick's preferred form of holiday entertainment may not live up to pop-culture expectations. Though he does not understand the art of "lip synchronization," he sure knows how to cherish something worth talking about – Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky. And while we may not be honoring holiday traditions with our one hundred best friends and second cousin-twice-removed this year, Lagavulin is still the perfect gift for the holidays.
"After many a holiday spent sipping Lagavulin by a blazing Yule Log, I have this year determined to venture into the world of the modern-day internet media tube," Nick said, likely dressed in a holiday onesie with a Santa hat to boot. "Well, I saw it. I can't say I fully understand it, nor do I want to, so I will now return to my usual holiday plans and sip the wondrous elixir that is Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky as intended."
Lagavulin Single Malt Scotch Whisky is available for online purchase and home delivery, meaning you can sip responsibly all season long without leaving the comfort of your home. Treat your 21+ friends, family or, most importantly, yourself, to a dram without taking off your holiday onesie.

There's a Reason Potatoes Fit the Bill
DENVER, April 28, 2020 /HalcyonTV/ -- Potatoes represent the largest sales increase of all vegetables sold at retail in March. Retail purchases of all potato products were 41 percent higher in March 2020 compared to the same time frame last year.
"Consumers give potatoes high marks for being a satisfying food that everyone enjoys and for being a great value," said Blair Richardson, CEO, Potatoes USA. "The surprising news for most people is that potatoes are a nutrient-dense vegetable."
Fresh potatoes have experienced a 42 percent volume increase since the beginning of March1 and a 67 percent year-over-year dollar sales increase as of the end of the first week of April.2 Before shelter-at-home mandates, 73 percent of consumers across the country reported eating potatoes at least once a month.
"Fresh potatoes are good for you and good for your wallet," said Richardson. "Potatoes have a more favorable overall nutrient-to-price ratio than many vegetables."
According to a study published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, potatoes provide more nutrients per penny compared to most vegetables. Potatoes have the highest score per dollar (along with sweet potatoes and carrots) on eight essential nutrients including potassium, ﬁber, protein, vitamins C and E, calcium, iron and magnesium.3
Potatoes contain as many, if not more, vitamins and minerals compared to other vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and sweet potato, per serving. One medium sized (5.3 ounces) skin-on potato contains 620 mg of potassium (more than a banana), 27 mg of vitamin C (more than a tomato), 2 grams fiber, and 3 grams of protein (which is half the protein in an egg). Potatoes provide all of these nutrients for 110 calories with no fat, sodium or gluten.
There are a number of fresh potatoes to choose from and each variety is particularly good for specific cooking styles and dishes:
"Dehydrated potatoes are a great option right now because they don't require refrigeration and can be a go-to in your pantry," said Richardson. "Same goes for potato chips."
Dehydrated potatoes are typically made from Russet, Red and Yellow potatoes that undergo a dehydration (removal of water). They can be easily rehydrated by adding water and then served or cooked immediately.
Potato chips are minimally processed and typically made with three ingredients found in most homes – potatoes, vegetable oil and salt. In comparison, several of the top snack foods contain five or more ingredients. Potato chips also primarily contain unsaturated fats (90 percent) – the type of fats that fit within a healthy dietary pattern.4

illy-brand capsules offer the distinct taste of the 100% Arabica illy blend at different intensities to appeal to all coffee lovers
NEW YORK, April 28, 2020 /HalcyonTV/ -- illycaffè, a global leader in high-quality coffee, announced a new way to enjoy a genuine illy experience with its expanded line of aluminium capsules compatible with Nespresso* Original coffee machines**.

Comprised of nine carefully selected Arabica coffee beans, the illy-branded capsules are available in five choices representing four intensities of taste: Classico, with a smooth and mild taste, available in espresso and espresso lungo (the latter of which produces more volume in the cup); the full-bodied taste of Intenso espresso; Forte espresso, with its rich and strong character; and new Decaffeinato espresso, a smooth and mild profile with less than 0.1% caffeine. The decaffeinated roast coffee capsules achieve a perfect balance between acidity and bitterness, with a lingering sweetness thanks to delicate notes of caramel, chocolate and toasted bread.
All capsule varieties are available on the illy e-shop and select retailers for a suggested retail price of $8.99 per pack of ten capsules. Through illy.com, coffee lovers can conveniently order compatible capsules directly to their home including via illy a casa coffee subscription, a convenient auto delivery that sends coffees on a preferred chosen schedule.
The illy-branded aluminium capsules are the result of the trademark licensing agreement between illycaffè and JAB.
