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.

To me, these Oven Baked Blueberry Bars just scream childhood.  I can remember finding one of these in my lunch bag back in elementary school.  Granted, the version I had were flattened and smooshed thanks to my lack of care, but they had looked like bars at some point.

Glutino makes these gluten free oven baked bars. While I only had the pleasure to try out the Blueberry flavour, there are also Apple Cinnamon and Strawberry choices, too!

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.

There is just a plethora different drink mix choices from many different companies. Most, however, only offer one or two flavour choices.  On top of that? They’ve got insane sugar content and a bunch of other additives that are just bad for you.

Ener-C has created a variety of drink mix flavours that appeal to the nutrition conscious consumer.  With extreme amounts of Vitamin C, you won’t have to worry about packing an orange with you, if you’ve got one of their drink packets.

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. […]

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.

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!

Snacking is hard to avoid. When we think snacks, we likely think sweets, sugar, or the “junk food”. Although, you probably shouldn’t avoid it, the difficult part about snacking comes when trying to find something that isn’t too sweet, or something that has more nutritional impact. PatsyPie can offer you a nice solution.

‘Oreo’ Sure This is Gluten Free?

  Eating gluten-free doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice your sweet tooth.

Thankfully, there are numerous products on the market that are customized to various dietary restrictions. For example, Glutino’s Chocolate Vanilla Creme cookie[…]
