Gracious Foods, Jacksonville, Fla., introduced its first product, Original Creamy Gracious Grits.

The recipe, inspired by owner Bill Cissel's mother, Judy, has been served in his restaurants for over 20 years. His wife, Jamie, suggested that it would be a good, fast, convenient and versatile product for today's busy homemakers.

"My mom made the best grits,” adds Cissel. “It takes a long time to make good grits. Today's moms and dads don't have that time. Gracious Grits will make anyone Southern in Seconds."

Original Creamy Gracious Grits are fully cooked and microwaveable in minutes.

They’re available in the dairy section of almost 700 of Southeastern Grocers' Winn Dixie, BI-LO, and Harveys stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
