Joyus is an online shopping site with videos of the best products picked by their curators. The Foodzie team will now run Joyus Food, with cofounder Emily Olson showcasing their delectable discoveries in videos.

“Think Food Network + Foodzie and that’s what we’ll be creating on Joyus Food,” she wrote.
