Say what you will about Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham, but you have to concede she’s got some serious business hustle! And in case you were wondering where that Farrahtrepreneurial spirit comes from, you needn’t look any further than her mom, Debra Danielsen. Debra is the President & CEO of S’Imaginer Foods, Inc., which is the parent company of the Mom & Me brand of gourmet foods and beverages that launched back in 2012.
Mom & Me started with a premium hot pepper sauce, but the brand continues to grow, with plans to add more food products as well as a red and white wine in 2016. The new products will have an official launch at the Ice Wine Festival in New York City later this week.
“We are excited to announce an expansion to our product line in 2016 which will be showcased in Brooklyn, NY February 5 – 7,” Debra tells us. Mom & Me is a gold sponsor for the event, and Debra reveals they are planning quite the extravaganza: “An ice sculpture artist will show off the Mom & Me brand lips in a 300-pound carved block of ice suspended from the ceiling for the gala event,” she says.
Here is a promotional poster for the Ice Wine Festival:
While the event and launch is in just a few days, the new product line won’t be available to order until April. At that time, there will be two limited edition packages available — one for the food products, and another for the wine. Here are all the details straight from Mom & Me:
MOM & ME FINE WINES
Sexy Red Blend (2013 Columbia Valley)
A Sicilian tradition. Our family loves this wine for all occasions like date nights, great times with friends and family, or business meetings. The luscious ripe fruit of this Super Tuscan style wine is velvety and smooth. Grapes include Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah, Merlot, and Mourvedre. We serve it with pastas, pizza, and spicy foods. My personal favorite too with a luscious chocolate dessert. 13.9% alcohol. Wine club discounts available.
Wild & White Wine (2014 Columbia Valley)
Perfect wine served at family lunches, afternoon parties, or anytime you want to keep things light. Our family loves this crisp, refreshingly Rhone style blend of Viognier and Roussanne grapes with fish, birds, or amazing salads. Especially refreshing on a hot Mediterranean day! 14.5% alcohol. Wine club discounts available.
Hand crafted, solid birch wood wine crates embossed with the mom&me® logo and tag line are available in April. These limited edition inaugural crates will hold both red or white mom&me® wine bottles. Our fine crates have removable wine racks, external handles, and can be used in commercial displays, or for home decor, and storage. Production is limited to only 100 crates to commemorate the fine wines launch of 2016. Order yours today to ensure you can get one. $100 each wine crate, shipping & handling separate, wine not included.
MOM & ME GOURMET FOODS
Premium Italian Pepper Sauce
Our flagship sauce! This spicy, rich flavored sauce is chunky with delicious bites of banana peppers, red onions, garlic, and other rich tastes of Sicily. The sauce is excellent for cooking and for dipping. Enjoy it on sandwiches, smothered over Italian sausages, with your favorite fish, beef, or pork, and dipping fresh Italian or French bread. It pairs well with mom&me® fine wines. You can cook or create over 1,000 different dishes. Check-out our serving suggestions of original chief created recipes on www.momandmefoods.com. These Serving suggestions are fast, simple, and delicious. They make you look like a culinary genius!!
Best Damn Mustard
Our spicy mustard is made with a hot banana pepper. This gourmet mustard is excellent for sushi, Thai food dishes, dipping vegetables, toast and bagels, or on your favorite sandwiches. Excellent on hors d’oeuvres too for rich flavor and color enhancement! Since banana peppers are in limited supply, you will find nothing like it on the shelf. Grandma has enjoyed receiving awards at the state fair for this culinary delight.
Our flavorful Mediterranean herb-drenched mushrooms will tantalize your taste buds. Sip our wine and imagine walking through an Italian vineyard as you eat these delicious mushrooms for your hors d’oeuvre! Keep our Mediterranean Mushrooms handy for unexpected guests, special occasions, or enjoy as a condiment. Our mushrooms are excellent on salads and served as a vegetable with your favorite entrée.
Hand crafted, solid pine wood boxes embossed with the mom&me® logo and tag line are available in April. These limited edition inaugural boxes hold three jars of our mom&me® food products. The fine pine boxes can be used for commercial displays, or for home decor, and storage. Production is limited to only 100 pine boxes to commemorate the gourmet foods launch of 2016. Order yours today to ensure you can get one. $40 each box, shipping & handling separate, food not included.
If you are in New York City for the Mom & Me gala, you might as well make plans to see another Farrah Family launch event, as Farrah’s daughter Sophia will be walking the New York Fashion Week catwalk as part of the Bound By the Crown Couture show:

On a side note, it appears as though Farrah and Debra have managed to work through their issues to some degree, which is remarkable given how heated and gut-wrenching their on-screen fights have been this season. Although Farrah seems to have distanced herself a little from the Mom & Me brand (she and daughter Sophia are no longer featured on the label), she has been actively promoting the launch event and the brand on social media. As further evidence of the Mom & Me reconciliation, Debra recently shared a link to the MTV post “Farrah Vs. Debra: These Are The Mother-Daughter Duo’s Fieriest Teen Mom OG Feuds” on Facebook and simply wrote, “History.”
Something tells me there will be more fireworks before there is peace, so be sure to tune in for all the drama with new episodes of Teen Mom OG airing Monday nights at 10/9c on MTV.
UPDATE – Here are some photos from the launch event!
