Spring has sprung and it’s that time of the year again – the time where celebrations are abound! Travel becomes part of the routine – whether it be to gather with family for birthdays, hitting the road to celebrate Easter with loved ones, graduation parties, annual beach trips, or a trek cross-state for that end-of-the-season championship game! It’s these times of the year when your drives to & from seem a blur, and you need that one-stop shop for the necessary road side snack or the party contribution you might’ve forgotten!
A full-line grocery store, Stripling’s General Store has something for even the pickiest of eaters! Kick fast food to the side and stop by for a mouthwatering meal from the hot bar—boasting a variety of prepared foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Stripling’s hot bar serves biscuits, barbecue, hamburgers, steak sandwiches, rib plates and their specialty – sausage dogs! The backbone of the family business, Stripling’s sausage follows the same careful process as created 1964 – always using “hot” fresh pork and made the same day the hog is butchered. By grinding the meat just once and adding special seasonings by hand, Stripling’s is able to achieve an end product with a consistent texture and flavor unlike any manufactured sausage sold in a grocery store. Grab a sausage dog from the hot bar or pick up a package of links to grill yourself – either way, they’re sure to please!
Looking for something lighter? Pick up a pack of Stripling’s famous beef jerky! A perfect snack for the road, Stripling’s Beef Jerky is cut from lean pieces of meat and hung by hand before being sent to the smoker. Available in original, mild & hot, these bold-flavored low-fat treats have been recognized by Paula Dean as “the best dadgum jerky” and have become a favorite for many!
Need to pick up a team snack or forget to grab a gift for that party you’re headed to? Stripling’s shelves are filled with homemade dips, salsas and gourmet foods to feed groups large and small! And don’t worry, with an array of artisanal cookies and treats, they’ve got the sweets covered! For gifting, pick and choose your favorite specialty foods or select from one of Stripling’s already curated gift baskets – catering to Grill Masters, Cooks, Hot Sauce Connoisseurs and more.
This Spring, when you find yourself driving through Bogart or Cordele, with a stomach on empty or the need to pick up that last-minute gift, stop by Stripling’s General Store – you’ll be greeted with friendly faces and quality you can’t compare!
