For celebrity chef and cookbook author Jake Smollett, all those perks mean more summer cookout fun. On a recent trip to ACME® Markets, he stocked up on everything he needed to make BBQ bacon cheeseburgers and root-beer cookie floats: a classic menu for one more delicious outdoor gathering. Dreaming up new recipes all the time means that Jake is always running to the store.

With ACME for U™, the personalized coupons and deals he gets today become tomorrow’s tasty treats — like the finger-licking homemade BBQ sauce that tops his signature burgers. Check out his haul, which includes three of his must-buy essentials from ACME® Markets’ O Organics line: O Organics Ground Beef, O Organics Minced Garlic, and O Organics Ketchup. After years of testing and retesting his burgers, he found the perfect flavor combination for a perfect summer burger. Mixing minced garlic and ketchup into his ground beef patties infuses the burgers with a surprising sharp-and-sweet taste as they cook. It’s a simple trick that makes his burgers a summer essential for his friends.
