World of Chia: Strawberry, Raspberry and Blackberry Fruit Spread Review + Giveaway
As regular readers will know, I attend the Natural Products Expo each year and make new discoveries and new connections. Recently the company that organized the Expo launched a blogger box, which contained products from companies that you typically would see at the East and West Coast versions of these shows.
One of the items in the box that I received was a jar of fruit and Chia by World of Chia. I initially tried this on a piece of bread toasted with butter and was immediately impressed. I knew at that first bite that I wanted to try the others and share it with you all!
GlutenTox Home Gluten Detection Kit Review + Giveaway
I am going to let you in on a secret – when I began this blog I had never heard the words gluten free and Celiac Disease. As time passed I began reviewing more and more gluten-free items, as well as attending the Natural Products Expo for the past 3 years. I have not only learned about Celiac Disease, but also what items in food is dangerous and why it is so dangerous.
Since learning about this silent threat, I feel passionately about making sure that people are aware there are tasty gluten free options available. While not my original path, I am happy that the road led me here.
There are times that people with gluten sensitivities get homemade gifts from friends or family and it is unknown if the item is gluten free. Thankfully there is a home test that in about 10 minutes can tell you if there is gluten – the GlutenTox Home Test Kit.
As I have mentioned in the past we are a snack house and we are always looking for tasty snacks that are healthy and will make our eating better. When I recently discovered the Chedz Premium Cheese Snacks I wanted to try the rest, and see if the other flavors were as good as the original.
Vegan Chocolate from Amore di Mona Review + Giveaway
Decadent, luxurious and satisfying. Usually when you are speaking about chocolate, the word Vegan does not come to mind. When I heard that there was a Vegan chocolate out there, I was curious to try. Amore di Mona makes luxury Vegan Chocolate that is really flavorful.
When I think back on my teen years, the one thing I always remember was being limited on food I could eat for 6 years. For those 6 years, I wore braces. The instructions that you are given when you get braces is to not eat anything that could dislodge or get stuck in your teeth.
The thing that I missed the most during that time was caramel and popcorn. Now as an adult with braces no more, I am free to eat what I want without worry of repercussions.
Given that feeling it should be no surprise that when I had the opportunity to review some popcorn and caramel from Annie B’s I had very little hesitation.
When I find a popcorn that is Non GMO, Gluten Free, Whole Grain, Kosher while popping to half the size of typical popcorn and is virtually hulless, I tend to stop in my tracks.
While walking the floor at the Natural Product Expo this year I came upon the bright and colorful display that was The Little Kernel. As I looked at the bags, they were as colorful as the popcorn was flavorful. I knew that I wanted more and wanted to try the other flavors available.
Enjoy Life Soft Baked & Crunchy Cookies Review and Giveaway
When ever I go to expo and food shows, one of the first things that I gravitate towards is the cookies.
As I have mentioned in the past I am a cookie monster and have met very few cookies that I do not like.
When I attended the Gluten Free and Allergen Friendly Expo I had the opportunity to walk through Enjoy Life Land by Enjoy Life Foods. The best way to describe the experience was it was like walking the yellow brick road with each step reminding walkers of the allergens that are not present in their products.
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.
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.
