Freaker Friday: NC Made!

Special treats can make or break any day.

Unexpectedly fired? Have a locally-sourced popsicle!

Wife left you? Eat a repurposed pickle!

It's Monday? Secret Mimosas! (Only use organic orange juice hand-squeezed with organic hands, of course.)

The best part about special treats is that they're completely different depending on where you are. If you order "special treat" in Maryland, you might get a pet crab, whereas Chino might give you a knuckle sandwich. We, however, we'll give you a grilled cheese and a Freaker Friday.

WHAT YOU'RE WINNING: We have 5 care packages this week featuring foodie treats curated by NC Made! NC Made is a small team of taste-testing enthusiasts that run a gourmet gift-box operation for specialty foods handcrafted in North Carolina! They travel the state tasting the handcrafted specialties of each region, then curating the best of the best into gift boxes for the world to drool over... AKA your new dream job.

Each winner will get to choose from blister-fried peanuts (an eastern NC recipe!) or pickles from "an award-winning producer in western NC transforming their local bounty into the best pickles you'll ever eat." They also gets a Cackalacky Freaker!

HOW TO ENTER: Get on Instagram & show us your special sauce (interpret that however you'd like!) with the hashtag #freakermade for your chance to win!
