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.
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.
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!
Masala Pop: Indian Spiced Popcorn Review + Giveaway
Often times my review items find their way to me by pure coincidence and other ones are by chance. When I heard that a company I have worked with in the past now is working with an Indian Spiced Popcorn company I was intrigued.
My sister in law is married to a French-Morrocan man, and thus my nieces and nephews are adept and used to the Indian spices. Since our household is not as familiar with these, I decided to seize on this opportunity in hopes that I would be able to recommend something yummy to my extended family. The company I was hoping to share was Masala Pop which makes an Indian inspired line of Masala popcorn’s.
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.
Newman’s Own: Newman’s in Your Basket – Spring 2017 Giveaway
As I have mentioned in the past, we are a cookie house. I would love to sit here and say that this is new, but ever since I was young I have loved cookies and chocolates!
One year for my Spring basket my father filled it with cookies and chocolate – it was one of my all time favorite baskets and I still think of it each year. Since we are such fans of Newman’s Own Organic array of chocolate and cookie products, I am excited to not only fill my basket with these treats, but help you fill yours. Continue reading →
Fill Your Basket with Pipcorn Giveaway – Spring 2017
As I mentioned when I originally did the review for Pipcorn, I was introduced to them via my television. Pipsnacks made an impression on me immediately, since theirs was a hul-less popcorn and was very tasty.
With the Easter holiday approaching, there are many ways to fill a basket. Since Pipcorn had made Oprah’s Favorite Things list twice and touted as easier to digest it makes the perfect addition to upcoming Easter Baskets.
Sometimes the best gifts are the simple ones. While chocolate is delicious simplicity counts for a lot at during this time of declarations of love.
One of the easier treats is taffy with it’s combination of sugar, corn syrup, cornstarch, water, butter, salt, food coloring and flavorings. Using a whipping process and 24 hour-long batch conditioning process you get the purest and tastiest taffy.
Since I am such a fan of taffy and thoughtful simple gifts, there is nothing as simple in the treat arena as taffy. That is why I am thrilled to give one person a chance to win a 2lb custom box from Taffy Town! Continue reading →
