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: Brownie, Bread Crumbs and Egg Replacer Review

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.

Dancing Deer Baking Company: Gluten Free Molasses Cookie Review

Dancing Deer Baking Co.: Gluten Free Molasses Cookie Review + Giveaway

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.

WOWBUTTER Review

WOWBUTTER Review and Giveaway

When I recently attended the Gluten Free + Allergen Friendly Expo I was on a search. I was looking for alternatives to my beloved peanut butter. Despite loving peanut butter & Jelly sandwiches, I have found that I end up with severe re-flux a couple of hours after eating.

In the past I have tried different nut butters, and have found a couple I really like. Since I am a fan of different types of foods and tend to go a phase eating only one particular type, it is always better to have more options available to me.

As I mentioned, when I went to the expo, I as on a search for peanut butter alternatives. As luck would have it, I had a sample in my bag from a company called WOWBUTTER. As I tried this sample I was amazed how much it tasted like a high quality peanut butter.
