NOTE: This set is customizable. If you’d like to customize the contents, please tell us the flavors you’d like substituted in the “order notes” box which is located at the bottom of the Checkout page BEFORE going to PayPal or entering your card information. Your order note should be visible on the email you receive after placing your order. If the order notes section is blank in your email, then it’s also 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.

  1. Gunther

    An excellent sample of Chef AJ Favorites if you want to experience what Chef AJ had when she first tasted them. You wouldn’t be disappointed.

    I LOVE this set! I discovered California Balsamic vinegars through Chef AJ and Nutmeg Notebook and took the plunge with this set. I loved all of these and now reorder and experiment with new no-oil flavors. They are just delicious for anyone but for those of us trying to reduce or eliminate processed fats they are especially miraculous. I drizzle these on soups, stir fries, salads, veggies and grain bowls and don’t even want to add oil. It would just dilute the spectacular flavor.

    Wow!! The sampler set is absolutely the best! We started growing our own lettuce this summer (which was surprisingly easy) and every day I would pick a salad topped with this amazing balsamic – no oil needed. What a treat! We really like the pomegranate. Honestly they are all delicious. This has been a great find. I will be sending these as gifts for the holidays to friends and family.

    Grateful that this company ships to military APO addresses overseas. Received my “sweet heat” and teriyaki products today. Amazingly robust flavors, and healthy as well. Can’t wait to try more products!

    I. Ami so excited to get my order.

    OMG…absolutely Delicious! My favorite is the lemon & chocolate raspberry! However, they are all delicious. I even used those 2 above on my fruit bowl! 1/2 CR & the other 1/2 lemon. Topped it with shredded coconut! Yes, my goodness, Yes!!

    Upon receipt of my order (two days ago) I Immediately opened every bottle to sample. I loved every flavor. Because my diet predominately consists of whole plant based foods, where I try to avoid separated oils, sugar, and meats, these balsamic vinegars will assist in more frequent avoidance. I add balsamic vinegars to my smoothies with greens to create nitrogen oxide for heart health. The variety of these flavors will make the taste of my smoothies a yummy adventure. I was surprised at how really flavorful the oils are and true to the stated flavor. THEY ARE MUCH THICKER (not runny goo as is store bought) and unlike expensive balsamic I’ve grocery store-bought balsamic, ARE delicious. Buy w/o hesitation and enjoy! 🎉🎉🎉❤️

    The balsamic vinegar is by far the best I’ve tasted. There hasn’t been a flavor I didn’t love! Simply delicious and oil free! I use them daily! Can’t wait to try more flavors.

    I don’t mean to be dramatic but these have literally changed my life! I used to spend so much time making home made salad dressings so that they could be sos free. Not any more!

    Second time ordering.
    I love the five pack sampler.
    Great for the purse to take to restaurants.
    I squirt them in salads and in grains. My favorite use is to squirt on mushrooms to sauté.

    I just purchased this set in August. Perfect size to bring with me on vacation so I could have healthy, delicious salads oil free! I have a variety at home now as well! So good!

  12. Tami Hightower (verified owner)

    YUMMMM!!! I received my sampler not more than 15 minutes ago – LOVE every flavor I got! I am excited to try more! I can’t wait until dinner to use these! 🙂

  13. Cheryl R

    Have tried all these flavours as well as the previous Chef AJ favourites and they are all great. Thomas was so great in shipping to Ontario Canada and taking my order over the phone. Placed a custom order for a gift as well.

    I just had the Huckleberry on my salad and it was amazing. This is an answer to a prayer as they are palatable which is helping me make healthier choice in my life. Thank you for creating these SOS free dressings!

  15. A. Leon

    Love the selection!
    Great flavors for many uses for a plant based diet!

    California Balsamic is simply AMAZING! This was my first time placing an order, but it most certainly will NOT be my last. I ordered the “Chef AJ’s Favorites Sampler Set”. I customized it to receive the following: Sweet Heat, Teriyaki Balsamic, Ruby Red Onion Balsamic, Gilroy Garlic, and Premium Classic Balsamic. I also got the 7-Herb Italian Balsamic and the Garden Dill Mustard Seed Balsamic as my two free samples. I must say…I love ALL seven of those flavors. This company truly produces top quality Balsamic products. I cannot see myself ever purchasing the watered down junk they sell in the supermarket. It simply does not compare.

    I received my order today and couldn’t want to sample these. I didn’t make any changes to the set and added the fig and raspberry flavors for my freebies. OMG, these are truly superior in taste and quality!! I was hesitant to purchase since I’m not a fan of balsamic vinegar (until now). Chef AJ is right you don’t need oil to have a great tasting salad dressing. So glad to have these for my up coming trip. Will be sharing your website with all my friends.

    These are amazing, I watched you on You Tube with Chef AJ and so happy I did! Embarked on a WFPB diet a month ago and these are a divine addition!
