California Balsamic Mail Order Promotion: Two Free 1.6 oz Samples with purchase

With every order placed through our website we will include two 1.6oz sample bottles of other flavors on our site in your box to try out! Our Truffle oil, dipping, and our powdered cinnamon are excluded and cannot be reccomended. To choose the two flavors yourself just write the names of the two flavors in the order notes box during checkout, otherwise we’ll happily pick the two out for you. Limit one set of promotion freebies per order.

Your order note should be visible on the email you receive after placing your order. If the order notes section there is blank in your email, then it’s blank for us and you need to reply back to that email with the message you had meant to leave so we can add it manually and make sure you get what you wanted. The most common causes of the order note getting “lost” are leaving the checkout page, changing tabs on mobile, refreshing the page, or auto-filling after having typed and your auto-fill deleting the box contents. The safest way to make sure your note stays is to enter it last during checkout, and then immediately proceed to payment.

This special gets mentioned in different communities (Chef AJ Special, Nutmeg Notebook Special, etc) as two free samples with your order, but people often got confused about how the special worked or forgot to write the name of their favorite content creator so we decided to add them to every box regardless of if they were requested or not. This is NOT a different special, so writing different names for this same special will not get you multiple sets of the two freebies. One set of two freebies for every placed order.

  1. Love your products as Chef AJ introduced me

    1. I love these vinegars! I use them every day on a sandwich, salad, pasta or whatever I’m having for dinner.
      My favorites are the Fresh basil & Simply lemon.

  2. I saw your product mentioned on Chew on Vegan and I enjoy her videos and know that she has very good recipes for my personal situation. I saw her Teriyaki balsamic being used on her veggie stir fry and I also ordered an 8 oz bottle for me. I would like the 2 free 1.6 oz sample bottle . I also have watched Chef AJ for a long time.

  3. I love Chef AJ and I love California Balsamic. I get tired of same ole food rather easily but CB always makes things better and more fun! I must have 30 bottles on the shelf – many are almost gone and it’s time to order order. Thank you for offering such a great product – we truly love it and never have to worry about the quality of the vinegars – near the end of each bottle is just as delicious as the beginning of a new opened bottle!

  4. Hello, I absolutely love your vinegars!! There is a major issue however, I’m not sure which one I like the best πŸ™
    This will be my second order, please include 2 free samples of your latest vinegar flavors. THANKS !!

  5. I would love to try your flavoured vinegars. Do you ship to Canada?

  6. I just placed an order and forgot to put Chef AJ. πŸ˜”

    I love your vinegars!β™₯️

  7. I watched chef AJ cook on Youtube today. She mentioned the promotion happening now with California Balsamic. I would like to participate in the 2 free 1.6oz bottles of vinegar with the purchase of one larger bottle. I am looking forward to tasting your vinegar.
    Thank you for the promotion and thank you chef AJ.

  8. I purchase your Vinegar every year at Strawberry Days, but we have not had you there for 3 years now (due to you know what, plus this year not there). I am so glad I can purchase on-line. Best Vinegars I have ever had and so flavorful. Can use for many things.

    1. Thanks Amanda,
      We plan on attending the Strawberry Days festival in 2023. Stop by and say Hi! Thomas & Ethel CA Balsamic

  9. My family and friends love your balsamic. Can’t wait to get my order.

    Friends can’t believe its vinegar
    Thank your making oil free

  11. Missed you at Del Mar Harvest Festival! Had a family order, have bought from you many many years there! They say you only do organic food shows. Do you have a schedule?

  12. Purchased your Items after watching Small Business Sunday Chef AJ on YouTube. I purchased several different flavors and am quite pleased. But my Ultimate Favorite is the Huckleberry, OMG!!! I put it on a baked sweet potato and man what a game changer! This is now my guilt-free, WFPB favorite dessert and breakfast. Thank you for creating these wonderful products!

  13. Love the Oil Free Vinegars. I love the fruit flavors drizzled on popcorn and sometimes with a little drizzle of maple syrup too and then bake 10 min on a cookie sheet with parchment at 350. The vinegars give a candied texture. So Yummy! Thank you Chef AJ for turning me onto this great company πŸ™‚

  14. There are 14 bottles:)

  15. Looking forward to trying these balsamic

  16. I saw this promotion on Chef AJ! Love her!

  21. I have just recently found Chef AJ. She has really gotten me into thinking about Plant Based Diet. She says to kick up your meals, use the California Balsamic products!!! So, here I am!! Thank you for offering the Free Samples with orders!!!

  22. Hello, My name is Christine Walker and I live in the UK in London, do you ship overseas. If so I would really like to try all of your products. I was made known of your products by Chef AJ, where I have purchased a few of her courses. I am going plant based as a result of what I have learnt about the foods that most people eat.

    Thank you.

    1. Christine,
      Thanks for your email. Right now we don’t ship to the UK because of Brexit rules. We’ve been using our US Postal Service for several years to ship overseas packages (except the UK) and recently we’re looking into a new shipping company for overseas packages. Please get back to me in 4-6 weeks to see if they have less strict rules for UK shipments. You can send an email to

      Look forward hearing from you,

      CA Balsamic

  23. I just received my first order! So excited! Just had grilled corn with Sweet Heat. It was excellent!!

  24. which of your balsamic are low fodmap..? Have to eliminate both gluten and high fodmaps in my diet. Thank you

    1. Hi Sharron, the existing documentation on fodmap lists most balsamic vinegars as low fodmap when consumed 1tbsp per serving. Unfortunately Fodmap is a fairly new calculation from after the 2005 Gibson and Shepard paper, and calculations for Fodmap beyond base ingredients such fruits grains dairy etc is limited. Our balsamic is not tested for specific fodmap content.
