"Vervacious Cheese Accompaniments -- Sexy, beautiful bottle with gorgeous contents, great with cheeses."
Gourmet Retailer, December 2008
"When I saw these Vervacious spices, teas, and sauces in the corner, I uttered a rather embarrassing squeal of delight. These beautifully crafted little glass jars are curved and structured so that they stack on top of one another to form a wavy glass tower. It transforms an assortment of teas/spices/sauces/cocoa into a mini sculpture. I must have looked a sight: stacking these jars as giddily as a baby who has just gotten her first blocks. Wouldn't you do the same? There is something very satisfying about having an assortment or collection of things; perhaps it's the 'collect-em-all' mentality; or maybe just the aesthetic pleasure of seeing things that are obviously a 'set' yet are varied and individual. I think Vervacious' clever design plays off of and elevates this joy. I also love how the glass really showcases the beautiful color and texture of the product. The whole packaging experience is one of a truly desirable, high-quality, artisanal product." - Melody Chang - Box Vox
"I discovered Vervacious while visiting Maine and couldn't wait to bring it into our stores. The packaging is as gorgeous as the contents are delicious! And, because the labels are removable, you can enjoy using these beautiful jars again and again...just one more reason why I think it makes a fantastic and reasonably-priced gift." - Joan, Hammertown, Hudson Valley, NY
"Frankly, everything they do sounds intriguing."
- Miami Sun Sentinel
