A few weeks ago I received some fruit bars from Betty Lou’s to sample & review. I thought these would be perfect for Jon to have as a snack, but he turned his nose up at them without tasting them the first time I offered them. I asked him how he could say he [...]
I had the pleasure of receiving two of the four limited edition flavors from Popcorn Indiana to review on Friday. The caramel popcorn and the dark fudge chocolate chip kettlecorn arrived just before dinner time, so I sat it nicely on the counter, resisting temptation to skip dinner & dive right in.
It is no secret that I am a fan of energy/protein bars. I like portable food for times when I am in a hurry or need to refuel after a workout. When I first started the gluten-free diet over 6 years ago, the choices for gluten-free bars were few & far between. There were [...]
Recently I had a chance to sample & review the brown rice crisps made by Riceworks. You can read my full review here and I’ll recap below.
We sampled 5 different varieties of the crisps: Parmesan, sweet chili, tangy BBQ, sea salt & salsa fresca. While each crisp was unique, they were all [...]
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Larabar introducing a brand new flavor: Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte. Just this week I received some complimentary samples to review & I got right to work! I don’t think there has been a Larabar flavor that I haven’t liked, but I was really looking forward to [...]
We all know the gluten-free diet is not specifically a weight loss diet. Does that mean you can’t lose weight while gluten-free? Nope. A diet is what you make it. You can eat 1800 calories of Twinkies a day and if that is less calories than your body needs/uses in a day, you will [...]
One of my favorite pre-gluten-free snacks was bagel chips. I loved the crunch. Nothing like a salty, spicy, crunch snack to wake you up in the middle of an afternoon slump. I have missed that and haven’t really found anything to quite take the place of those bagel chips. Until now. Enter: El’s Gluten-Free snacks. [...]
When Baked Classics asked if I wanted to sample their chips, I jumped at the chance! Is the sky blue? Well, is it blue in most places? LOL! They quickly sent me all three varieties of their chips to sample.
Do you see the middle bag? Vanilla Frosting chips? Of course I busted [...]
Before starting the gluten-free diet, I was a huge fan of Cheese Its. I liked many different varieties – Original, White Cheddar Hot & Spicy. I haven’t found much in the way of a close gluten-free substitute, though The Grainless Baker makes a cheese cracker that comes pretty darn close. Then I found Mrs. Crimbles [...]
Have you have the pleasure of trying Garden of Eatin’s blue corn tortilla chips? If not, you are missing out. These chips are some of my favorite for making nachos, dipping in guacamole or just eating alongside a taco salad. They hold their crisp and don’t become soggy; they have just the right amount of [...]
