Most “Soy-Nut Butters” (peanut butter alternatives made from soybeans) taste like they sound...less like peanuts, more like re-purposed packing foam. To bridge the gap, Wowbutter was created. In a blind taste test we challenged our primary food buyer (who also happens to be a Job Lot Founder / Owner) to tell the difference between Wowbutter and traditional peanut butter. He couldn’t!
Wowbutter is perfect for households with allergies, school lunches and pretty much anywhere peanut butter is called for (even in recipes), but peanuts are verboten
Try it -- you may be as surprised as we were.
Novelties and Gifts
We’ve all seen them...those quirky, tickle-your-funnybone novelty products in specialty catalogs and mall gift stores that solve an everyday problem you didn’t know you had, and bring a smile to your face... but cost a small fortune.
You know what we’re talking about; a scarf woven to look like crime scene tape, a “TeaTanic” tea infuser that resembles the Titanic going down in your tea, a “To-Do list” tattoo maker for making temporary To-Do list tattoos for your hand (or anywhere else), an insulated, reusable, waterproof and resealable “Wine’O” gift bag fashioned to look like a crumpled package store paper bag, a silicone “Cool Shooter” mold for making shot glasses out of ice -- and the list goes on.
Cool products, yes -- but would you pay $15.00 - $50.00 for them?
Thousands have, but Job Lot shoppers don’t have to.
We’re offering a closeout from a higher-end novelty catalog and online company whose products have sold for years in kitchy catalogs and gift stores all over the globe.
Choose from hundreds of items, from the whimsical to the comical, and pretty much everything in between.
Not all products will be available in all stores, and, quantities of some items are very limited.
Prepare to giggle, if not laugh out loud.
(Think stocking stuffers!)
Rice isn’t hard to make...if you have the time and patience. But what if you don’t have the time, or the patience?
Pop a Shirakiku Cooked Rice bowl in the microwave and you’ll have freshly steamed, perfectly cooked rice in just one minute. Add chicken, fish and/or vegetables along with your favorite seasonings and dinner (or lunch) is on.
Udon noodles are thick white noodles made from wheat and noted for their fine, palatable and smooth taste. With just a pinch of salt and no egg, Udon are generally whiter and softer in texture than other noodles.
Ready in minutes, Shirakiku Instant Udon Noodles can be served hot or cold, in soups, hot pots or stir frys.
Available in Chicken and Oriental flavors.
Tempura made easy. Enough said.
At Job Lot we think we know a bit about preserves, jams and jellies -- we ought to, we carry upwards of 30 varieties at any one time. But just when we thought we’d seen it all, in walks a representative from Svanso, a top shelf European preserve maker, with an assortment of preserves in not-your-everyday flavors.
We decided to take a walk on the wilder side and try offering a handful of unique flavors like Orange-Pineapple Mango, Kiwi, Fig and Lingonberry, to name a few.
Give one (or two or three) a try and let us know what you think.
Olivari Extra Virgin Olive Oil offers a smooth, balanced and somewhat fruity profile that enhances everyday cooking.
Best for dipping bread, drizzling on salads, vegetables, and pasta, flavoring sauces, dips and dressing, marinating and grilling fish, poultry, and vegetables.
Can replace butter, margarine, and vegetable oil in most of your favorite recipes

Our “cracker guy” offered us a deal on single-packs of Peanut Butter Snack Cracker sandwiches, which, for some odd reason he had in more numerous supply than he could move. So we bought them all, at a fraction of the price a single pack normally costs. Good for him. Good for us. Great for you, if you’re planning a summer outing -- or want to get a headstart on your back-to-school lunch planning

Is it a pretzel or a chip? At Job Lot we tried Pressels, a new product from Dream Pretzels, and we’re still not sure.
PRESSELS™ isn’t just a pretzel; it’s an all-natural, 100% baked, thin and crispy pretzel chip. With no genetically modified ingredients and 80% less fat than a bag of potato chips, one thing is sure -- it’s a healthy snack alternative.
Pemmican Jerky is thick-sliced and extra tender, packed with protein, and 96 percent fat free. Take the jerky strips anywhere for a convenient, flavorful snack.
The folks at Popcorn Indiana are wildly fanatical about healthier, whole grain snacking. They have their own facility, filled with honest-to-goodness non-GMO corn that’s specifically grown for popping. They have special kettles that are filled, by hand, one scoop at a time, by real people (not machines), who carefully produce what we at Job Lot think is some of the greatest popcorn we've ever had. (That sentence had a lot of commas, so you know we're serious.) They even have popcorn chefs who do nothing but dream up different flavor combinations like Jalapeno, Sriracha, and White Cheddar -- all of which are headed to our stores.
This popcorn is a bit pricier than other popcorn out there -- the best usually costs a little more. However, at Job Lot we think you’ll discover that “a little more” is a lot less “more” than most any place else.

Ahoy, mateys! After sailing far and wide, we were hard pressed to find a tastier snack on sea or land than Pirate’s Booty White Cheddar Popcorn. Baked with simple, delicious ingredients, Pirate’s Booty Popcorn is a fun and easy snack for everyone to enjoy.
De la Estancia organic polenta is made from a special variety of corn grown in the foothills of the Andes. The unique low-starch, high-protein characteristics of this "flint" corn coupled with the fact that its growing cycle is twice as long as common corn result in a polenta that is smoother and creamier than other polentas. This polenta cooks in 1 minute, but it’s not an “instant” polenta which can often have a sticky consistency.
With a slightly fruity note and a warm lingering spice, California Olive Ranch Miller’s Blend Olive Oil is great with spicy dishes, curry, or roasted meat dishes. It also pairs well with warm winter stews, pastas, roasted garlic fondue. Try it out and let us know what you think.
Dried apricots are the perfect (and healthy) snack for today’s active lifestyle. Keep a bag in your car, gym bag or desk for a quick and easy snack during your busy day.

On your pancakes and waffles, or, topping your ice cream as a woodsy alternative to oh-so-boring hot fudge, Hungry Jack syrup has a way of making people smile. But giv’em Hungry Jack syrup at a close-out price and they get downright euphoric.
Great as a substitute for run-of-the mill peanuts, walnuts and pecans, Macadamia nuts add an exotic note to all kinds of sweet or savory dishes. Still not convinced? Lightly toast a handful of Macadamias, crush them gently and sprinkle atop a summer salad...then tell us you’re not a fan. Salads not your thing? Here are other recipes to help jumpstart the hidden Macadamia maven in you.
We recently received a special shipment of children’s and young adult books that cover a wide variety of interest categories, from science and history to pet care and cooking. But what makes these books particularly special (aside from the subject matter and exquisite writing styles) is that all these books are library bound. The term “library bound” refers to books which have been carefully printed and durably bound to resist wear and heavy use. Library bound books typically cost 4x to 5x vs. books available to the general public...that is, unless you’re lucky enough to find them at Ocean State Job Lot.
If your children are avid readers, or, if you’re a teacher and /or librarian looking for an addition to your library selection, this is a deal you’ll want to check out.
All juice and nothing but the juice.
Available in Just Black Cherry, Just Blueberry, Just Cranberry, Just Pomegranate, Organic Just Concord Grape, and Organic Just Tart Cherry.
Miso is the Japanese term for fermented soybean paste. Before you make that “do you really expect me to eat that” face consider that for centuries miso has been a staple of Asian cuisine -- and figures prominently in many of their most tasty dishes.
Miso is commonly used to give depth and flavor to soups, sauces, marinades and salad dressings.
Need a good reason to give miso a try? Here are few recipes to start you off.
Combine a Cheeto-esque snack and a Beanito chip and you get a Beanito Puff -- all the great wholesome taste of a Beanito without the orange fingers.
Eating Gluten-Free shouldn’t have to mean eating flavor-free.
Grab a handful of the best in gluten-free pretzel twists, dusted with pure sea salt and baked to crisp perfection. The best part (aside from the classically good taste) is these pretzels are deliciously free of gluten and other common allergens.

We’ve got Doctor Kracker Crispbreads in one of their best-selling flavors; Pumpkin Seed Cheddar, which combines aged cheddar with the provocative flavor of pumpkin seeds.

The Fusion ProGlide Hydra Smooth formula provides enhanced glide and contains glycerin to help keep your skin hydrated during the shave.
Less razor burn makes for a more comfortable shave.
According to razor industry pundits (is that really someone’s job?) The Gillette Fusion Proglide is in a class by itself with thinner, finer blades and an advanced low-resistance coating for less tug and pull. It also features a MicroComb that helps guide stubble to the blades, and a blade stabilizer that maintains optimal blade spacing for comfort.
All that technology comes at a price...and this razor isn’t cheap. But for all you shaving purists out there this may be the razor you’ve been looking for -- at a value you'll be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
Includes razor and (2) easy-change cartridges
If orange is the new black, we think camo may very well be the new orange.
