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.
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!

As a blogger I get to go to expo and shows, which results in many cool and exclusive items not available yet to the general public.

It is for that reason I am super excited to have the opportunity to give one reader a blogger bag like the one I received.

Milton’s Craft Bakers: Gourmet and Snack Cracker Review & Giveaway
As I have mentioned in the past, I get to sample, try and attend many things as a blogger. A couple of weeks back I went to the Gluten-Free Allergen Friendly Expo here in San Diego and I had the opportunity to see one of my favorite local brands – Milton’s Craft Bakers.
The Milton’s Craft Baker crew is about 10 minutes from my house and since I am such a fan of support of local companies, I was happy to see them. Our path’s crossed again at the Natural Product Expo, and I felt it was the “blogiverse” telling me that I had to review their gourmet and snack crackers.
