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.

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.
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!
