Our Buy American Mention of the Week!
by Roger Simmermaker
February 10, 2010

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. And guys, if you're thinking about getting roses for that important woman in your life, you can be sure to get guaranteed American-grown roses from Jackson & Perkins, which delivers all of their roses from California's San Joaquin Valley. But what if you're interested in getting something other than the traditional Valentine's Day gift of roses that can still claim the United States of America as the source?

Few things can warm an American heart more than a good, hot cup of coffee, and the best place to get it is from the USA Coffee Company at where every bit of it is truly American from tree to cup.

Only American workers and American jobs are involved when you buy any of the many types of coffee and other related products from the USA Coffee Company, which grows all of their coffee in the great state of Hawaii. You can check out their V-Day Combo special and get free USPS Priority shipping.

America's patriotic brick-and-mortar store American Aisle ( has all kinds of American-made Valentine's Day gifts at special prices to celebrate the special day with your sweetie.

Also available at (if you don't live close enough to the Chicagoland area to visit their store in person) are Heart Pops for 59 cents each, Valentine Pretzels (14 ounce bag for $7.99), Red Candied Dried Tart Cherries for $1.99, a Hearts Filled Teddy Bear for $7.99, a Cupid Crunch Bag of candy for $5.99, along with milk chocolate pretzels, dark chocolate pretzels, and white chocolate pretzels for $7.99 each. How simpler (and cheaper) can it be to shower your sweetie with Valentine's Day treats?

You can also buy American when you buy what I buy if you visit and pick up their Icon Candle Heart for a mere $19.99.
