A Killer Combination


Chocolate and mint. Mint and chocolate. We’ve seen many variations of this pairing from Girl Scout thin mints, After Eight’s, and the iconic mint chocolate chip ice cream. This crowd-pleasing duo is served on any occasion since its bold taste is sweet enough for any season. It’s a classic combination that’s spanned generations and displays no decline in popularity.

free2B’s Dark Chocolate Mint Cups are exactly what you hope for when you combine these two distinct flavours. Its thick outer chocolate cup is devilishly dark and delivers a firm, crisp bite. Inside the cup is a dense, creamy layer of cool mint – a contrasting texture that makes this a harmonious combination. In my opinion, the best way to consume this treat is by allowing it to melt in your mouth to allow for a delightful transformation in texture.


Take Chocolate Cover From the Flaky Wafers!

I’ve always thought of waves as something to have with tea, or something more posh– something out of my accessibility. Definitely not the case, now that I’ve grown up and can provide for myself. These Milk Chocolate Wafers from Glutino are for everyone! One thing that I’ve always appreciated about Glutino is how the company can take snacks already available to the general public and make them accessible to those with gluten sensitivities.  


Snack on This!

Did you know that snacking could lead to health and weight-loss benefits?! While there may be studies that claim otherwise, the results lead to positive benefits if you snack appropriately. I admit… I’m a constant snacker. I could snack all day and continue to consume three full meals. Although I’m a health-conscious eater, I can’t help but want to snack on chocolate, chips, and anything salty. Munching on carrots and celery sticks every day can get boring quickly, which is why I believe in maintaining a balanced diet of healthy foods and not-so-healthy-but-good-for-your-soul foods. […]

Gluten Free, Guilt Free, Chocolate Pretzel Spree

Pretzels are can be nice, but they can also be boring.  My impression of pretzels is that they’re dry and cause me to drink more water than I want to thanks to the salt content.  However, Glutino’s Chocolate Covered Pretzels add a bit more excitement and flavour.

If you’ve been looking for a good snack, I think these would fit into any scenario.


A Case of Crumbly Cookies

The world of cookies is extremely diverse. There are soft ones, hard ones, smooth ones, rough ones. There are ones made for twisting and dipping into milk, there are ones best served with hot tea or coffee. There are large ones the size of your face, and there are ones perfect for bite-sized portions.  There are also sweet cookies, and there are also salty and savoury cookies. One thing is certain in all of this: the combinations and permutations of ingredients and flavours of cookies is never ending. Udi’s Maple Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookie is a gem among the masses of options. And obviously, they’re gluten free to boot!


Big Bites in Small Sizes

One Degree Organic foods puts a lot of work into their food. And I don’t mean just processing the raw food but, I really mean understanding where each ingredient comes from.  Looking at their website alone, you can see the commitment when they show faces of farmers who produce the listed ingredients. One degree organic foods comes with a story. When it comes to their Sprouted Oat Quinoa Cacao Granola the story isn’t different there either.  The name of the product also tells you the key ingredients you’ll find.   […]

Your Easiest Batch of Baked Brownies

We just can’t seem to resist the alluring temptations of brownies.  We can lie to ourselves all we want about how we will only eat “just one”.  And sometimes–no, rarely– that’s true. More often than not we can even find ourselves sticking to “just one”– just one bag of brownies. Maybe that’s an exaggeration, but you get the point: they’re irresistible. For those with gluten sensitivity this can be a serious temptation. Dolled-Up Desserts has created an alternative recipe for this classic dessert (or appetizer, depending on which order you eat your food) that almost anyone can enjoy: Bettie’s Brownie


Campfire Nostalgia

Picture this: Camping. Friends, Fire, and the smell the wilderness.

Someone pulls out all you need for s’mores and before you know it your hands are covered in chocolate, crumbs and marshmallows.  The thing I appreciate about the Schar Chocolate Honeygrams is you can probably avoid (most of) the mess thanks to the way they’ve packaged these snacks.

The product being gluten free I was prepared for a pile of crumbs after munching on these. There was a pile, yes, but nothing more than I would expect when snacking on graham cookies.  The mess could also be attributed to the fact that I devoured these cookies at record speed.




Chocolate. Nut-Free. Gluten-Free. Oh my!

Author : Maycko Macapugas Photos: Logan Kardash Most, if not all of us, hear SunRype and we might think: grade school, lunchtime, juice boxes. Learning that SunRype had created these interesting bite-sized chocolate goodness snacks made me curious. I was surprised to find that SunRype had since moved from juice boxes and fruit snacks and[…]
