Gluten Free Product Review – Van’s Mighty Good BBQ Multi Grain Chip

Gluten Free Product Review – Van’s Mighty Good BBQ Multi Grain Chip

I am such a snacker!!

Also, the older I get the more important CRUNCH is to me in my food selections.

Strange isn’t it?!?!

Well, I never denied being rather strange… But today I gotta share a new find for me.  I know this product has been out on the market for awhile but really… I just never got around to trying it.

Well if there is anybody else like myself who “keeps meaning to get around to it” when it comes to Van’s Gluten Free BBQ Multi Grain Chips… GET TO IT!!

I just adored this product.  I ate the whole bag in one day.  Now I am not saying that as in something I am proud of… just stating the facts.

I will admit that Handsome Hubby did not care for them.  We have not been able to figure out if it is because he is not required to be gluten free and occasionally gets “regular” BBQ chips, or if it was simply cause it just wasn’t something he enjoyed.  But I am going to let you in on a little secret… I was THRILLED he didn’t like them and then proceeded to eat my way through the bag.  Okay… so maybe it would have been better for me had he liked them but sometimes it is just awesome to have a little snack just to yourself that your spouse does not enjoy… He likes these strange peach gummy things that I can not stomach… we I will let him have those while I eat more of these!!

Gluten Free Product Review – Jovy Fruit Rolls

Gluten Free Product Review – Jovy Fruit Rolls

When I was a little kid getting fruit roll ups were a special treat!!  I remember back in those days they would go on sale occasionally for 10 or 12 for a buck!!  Talk about a good deal.  Now days they are considerably more expensive than that.

Thankfully after inspecting the Jovy Roll  package I learned that they were gluten free and I was just so thrilled!!  However, when I see them it is so hard for me to not to buy them.  It brings back such wonderful memories!!  As when I was a kid, the apricot and grape are my favorites.

Other great flavors are available like strawberry, mango, apple, watermelon, strawberry kiwi, raspberry, pineapple and cherry.  Although not all of those flavors were available at my local grocer, I am eager to try them.

These are great for packing into a lunch or a quick snack.  Now of course I also suggest you try making your own fruit leather / rolls…..  If you ever want to give it a shot, try this yummy recipe… HERE.  However, if you don’t have the time or desire to make your own then give these a try.  I am not just saying that because they were my favorite childhood treat… Okay, maybe I am… guess we will never now.

Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Bombs (Naturally Gluten Free)

I have always said that whoever does PR for Prunes was terrible at their jobs.  I truly believe that had they called them dried plums, instead of prunes, it wouldn’t have the stigma that prunes seem to have.

Whoever came up with something named the restaurant chain Fat Burger, I feel could have been on the prune PR team…. I can not imagine going somewhere and eating a FAT burger.  I imagine they are GREAT… but the name really puts me off.

Whoever came up with FAT bombs… must be related to the people mentioned above… because it just sounds terrible.  However, I sucked it up and gave it a try since hubby is trying to cut back on his carbs and this sounded like a great low carb dessert for his sweet tooth.

Much to my surprise they were really tasty!!

I enjoyed them the most when I let them sit on the counter for a few minutes prior to eating them.  Doing that it really makes them taste like creamy strawberry ice cream.

One thing that is very important to do prior to making these tasty treats… eat on of your strawberries because I didn’t do that and I really feel like my strawberries were not that sweet and needed a little more sweeter because mine were a bit on the tart side… but if you adjust for the strawberry sweetness you are bound to like these as much as I do.

By the way….

something else I did with these… I toss a few frozen ones, with a little bit of milk into my Vitamix and BAMB…. I had the most decedent milkshake!!  DANG!!  making these for that alone is worth it!!

Enjoy!!

Summer is coming… and I don’t know about you but in mine, when summer comes, that means a lot of backyard BBQs, pool parties, and picnics!!

Being gluten free it’s always appreciated both by myself and the host when I bring food that is safe for me to eat… However, it’s always a bonus when I can bring foods that is not only safe for me but something that other guest will enjoy as well.

Today’s recipe is an easy way to make a quick dip… even if you purchase the veggies already prepped at your store… this is tasty stuff!!

By the way… I have also used leftover dip, thinned out just slightly as a great dip for chicken nuggets… YUMM!!
