The "This Little Goat" product line came about as people repeatedly asked about the sauce used on Izard's green beans (no lie - when I mentioned this collection to a former Chicagoan friend, he immediately mentioned her green beans. Enter This Little Goat, a line of globally-inspired, flavor-packed foodie add-ons that make the most basic meals something unexpected and craveable.
