One of my favorite things is to try new products, and try something that I typically would not have the opportunity to try. When I attended the Gluten Free Allergen Friendly Expo and the Natural Products Expo I discovered a new company called Rise Buddy.
I am not going to lie, if I have the opportunity to review jerky or a meat stick, I generally jump at the chance. I have discovered that there is nothing better than having a infusion of protein during the day. Generally, it is filling and tides me over until dinner in the evening.
When I was approached to review The New Primal and their jerky and meat stick assortment, I was intrigued since they have some flavors I had not seen before.
Simple Mills: Ready-to-Eat Cookies – Double Chocolate, Toasted Pecan and Chocolate Chip Cookies Review + Giveaway
This past March when I attended the Natural Products Expo one of my favorite booths was the Simple Mills booth. The booth was bright, inviting and just simple. That is what I enjoy about Simple Mills. This is a company that keeps it simple, while providing a tasty product.
During the expo, I had the opportunity to sample a couple of products, and when I saw that they had a new cookie line, I knew I wanted to investigate further. I inquired to Simple Mills so that I could sample their new cookie’s and when I reached out they were generous enough to send me a their newest sweet offering.
As I have mentioned in the past we are a snack house – we love our snacks. The problem is that many times we are looking for a semi-heathy snack that we can eat without our hands being dirtied or full.
In our house, both of us spend many hours at our computers, and since we do not like to get our keyboards dirty, popcorn is often the snack that we end up choosing.
The problem is that since we eat so much popcorn, we grow tired of the flavors typically available. When I recently came across a company called Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn and saw their collection, I was interested to give these different flavors a try.
Salba Chia: Dark Chocolate Chia Seeds Review & Giveaway
As a review blogger I am always on the hunt for new and innovative products that combine health and sweetness. Hands down one of my favorite sweet things is Dark Chocolate. That is not to say that there is anything wrong with milk chocolate but there is something decadent and luxurious about this darker chocolate.
When I attended the Natural Products Expo in March, one of the things that I discovered were Dark Chocolate Salba Chia Seeds from Salba Smart Natural Products. I have been thinking about these ever since, and I knew that full review was needed.
Namaste Foods: Dark Chocolate Brownies, Italian Herb Bread Crumbs and Egg Replacer Review and Giveaway
In the infancy of my review blogging I had the opportunity to try many good companies.
When I attended the Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo in San Diego I had the opportunity to meet the people behind the company that I had the chance to review in those early days.
One of my favorite things is to see companies expand their product lines and offer a wide selection of products in their respective categories.
Namaste Foods has a line of foods that are free from the top 8 allergens typically found in other foods and contain no wheat, no gluten, no corn, no soy, no potatoes, no dairy, no casein, no peanuts or tree nuts.
There is a saying that references molasses that goes “slow as molasses in January”. While the origins of this saying date back to the Great Molasses Flood of January 15th of 1919, when over 2.5 million gallons of molasses from a 58 foot tank broke loose and caused a tidal wave of molasses of over 30 feet that tore the steel supports off the nearby elevated train structure.
Almost 100 years later, the term is stil used as is molasses. This simple by-product is made from refining sugarcane and/or sugar beets into sugar. The result is a slow pouring sweet syrup that when added to cookies, makes a chewy, sweet and delicious cookie.
When I recently received a press release that the Dancing Deer Baking Co had released a molasses cookie that was gluten free, I knew I wanted to give it a try.
One of my favorite local deli’s is Miltons in Del Mar – the soup, the sandwiches, the deserts and every piece in between is tasty and delicious.
When I originally heard that they also have a craft baking division I was excited to bring home that Milton’s goodness. Milton’s has continued the tasty tradition with the Milton’s Gluten Free Baked Chipsthat are crispy as well as tasty!
