The Tastiest Teacher Appreciation Gifts


If you’re a parent, you understand how instrumental teachers are in giving your child a fun, educational, and memorable childhood. At The Best Stop, we want to help you give back to the people who are bringing your kids up right.

And look at that—May is just around the corner! That means National Teacher Appreciation Month is fast approaching. We’ve put together ideas for some exciting (and spicy!) culinary gifts you can give to your children’s favorite teachers. Even better, all of these delicious packages can be shipped straight to your doorstep from our online shop.


It’s no secret that teachers are busy people. They deal with hundreds of restless, wild-eyed children each and every day. Even teachers who work with teenagers deal with their fair share of workplace chaos. As a result, getting a bite to eat in between the noise and confusion is far easier said than done. And sometimes they’re far too loaded with work and papers to grade to find the time for lunch—yikes!

Our cracklins are here to help. If you’re not from the South, you may not be familiar with what a cracklin is, exactly. Cracklins are like pork rinds but with a dusting of trademark Cajun spice. They’re mouthwatering and protein-packed, making them a delicious and healthier alternative to junk food like potato chips and perfect for any of your kid’s teachers who might be on a ketogenic-style diet. In other words, they’re perfect for a busy teacher looking for a flavorful, spicy snack to get them through the day!

Ready-to-Eat Specialty Dishes

Of course, teachers need more than snacks. Something heartier is needed to give them the energy they need to make it through the day. That’s why our ready-to-eat specialty dishes may be the perfect gift for your kid’s favorite teacher.

Like cracklins, all of our meals are jam-packed with the flavors, spices and rich textures that make Cajun cuisine famous. But as the name implies, there’s no need to go through the trouble of making these dishes from scratch. Our pre-made offerings are quick to put together and many of them are microwavable, which makes them as convenient as they are delicious.

We offer everything from Beef Meat Pies to Homemade Gumbo. Check out our online store to find the perfect dish for your teacher of choice or pick up a few and build a gift basket full of South Louisiana flair!

Marinated and Seasoned Meats

Some teachers prefer to do the cooking themselves, though. While our chefs take some offense, we understand—there’s no reason a hectic day in the classroom should keep a teacher from crafting mouthwatering dishes in their spare time. But still, we want to spread the word of Cajun-style dishes as much as we can, which is why our marinated and pre-seasoned proteins are available for shipping all over the world.

Treat your children’s teachers to some delicious Cajun meats like stuffed chicken breasts, boudin, steaks and much more. They can be ordered and delivered fresh or frozen right to their classroom door!  

Cajun-Style Condiments and Sauces

And if you’re looking to provide a lucky teacher with everything and the kitchen sink, consider sending them a gift basket filled with our highly rated condiments and sauces. We have a ton of different options— dressing mixes for salads, garlic marinades, hot sauces, seasonings and spices, just to name a few.

Make this teacher appreciation week a tasty one for your favorite educators. Come on over to our site to peruse our complete collection of delicious Cajun meals, condiments and snacks. And wish your local educators a happy National Teacher Appreciation Month from all of us here at The Best Stop in Scott!
