The hot gift for the rock and roll foodie in your life this holiday season is a box set that aims to “Kick out the Jams.” Proceeds will benefit Jail Guitar Doors, a nonprofit directed by MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer.
It includes a 12-ounce package of “riff roast,” an organic, dark roast coffee from Traverse City’s Higher Ground Coffee, a Jail Guitar Doors coffee mug and a 10-ounce jar of Gus & Grey Ramblin’ Rose raspberry rose jam.
The set is $40, and the three items can also be purchased separately. Proceeds from the package benefit Jail Guitar Doors. Gus & Grey has other music-themed products like the “Berry Gourdey” spiced blueberry pumpkin jam made with Michigan blueberries.
