I fell in love with guava while in Tobago in the form of homemade jelly on homemade bread with butter. I knew it would never be the same again, but the next best thing can be store-bought guava jelly on sweet toasted Barbados bread with Kerrygold salted butter. A morning did not pass without it in some form.

Now that I am home, I thought my moment with guava was gone, alas, but I found these imported sweet condiments made with the tropical fruits of Brazil from a Rio de Janeiro company called Bazzar at Fairway Market (@FairwayMarket). Low and behold, they have two guava products. One is a sauce made with the country’s paluma guava. The other, Goiabada (the Portuguese word for guava), is like guava butter with added spice. My new favorite!

If the citrusy sweet taste of guava isn’t your thing, other products include Bananada made with banana marmelo, Acai with guarana and a sinful coffee chocolate sauce. All of them are obviously great for desserts—the new toppings for adult sundaes! However, using them to add a little pizzazz and mystery to a cheeseboard at your holiday gathering might just be the cheer you need.
