For whatever reason, Garlic Expressions never seemed particularly Ohio-ish. It’s sold at gourmet grocers and in the produce section at lots of Kroger stores. There’s no giant State-Of-Ohio shape on its label. Still, Garlic Expressions is made by LarMar Foods in Perrysburg: that’s pretty Ohio. It took five or six bottles of the stuff to […]
