I Ate These So You Wouldn’t Have To

That’s right. And you’re welcome.

Here’s a round-up of some foods I can’t recommend. In fact, I shudder to think of them. Here you go:

gluten-free-seaweed1

Okay, I’ve had seaweed before, and I like it, honestly. But this… I don’t know what this was. It was everything I could do to choke one of those cellophane-thin wafers down. I really thought it tasted and smelled like raw sewage. Conversely, I gave them to a friend who absolutely loved them and asked me to buy out every package they had in the store. So, go figure.

More Goodies at Cole’s Fine Foods

Here’s a round-up of some more of the delicious menu that you’ll find at Cole’s Fine Foods. Don’t mind if the photos don’t exactly match the specific items. I’m a little disorganized at the moment! Trust me, it’s all good.

coles-perfect-chocolate-cupcakes-032715German Chocolate Cupcake: If you love chocolate, these cupcakes will knock your socks off. The cake part of this treat is bursting with chocolate flavor. It’s so good, it doesn’t even need icing. But it gets icing, and man, this icing is smooth, decadent, and delicious. The coconut filling adds just a hint of creamy sweetness to the center. Honestly, cut this guy in half; don’t eat it all at once. Just wonderful.

coles-pizza-032715Pesto Pizza: It’s what’s for lunch, or what should be. Wonderful flavor, excellent consistency, and one of the great pleasures of eating this pizza is the amazing aroma that fills your senses before each bite. And it tastes exactly how it smells – which isn’t always the case with food.

coles-fine-foods-lemon-bar-img_20150327_171407221Dairy-free Lemon Bars: Yes, the orgasmic lemon bar now has a dairy-free sibling, and without putting them in a taste-test side-by-side, I couldn’t tell the difference. So all you non-dairy folks, get on over to Cole’s and enjoy one of those.

Cole’s now also has even more vegetarian offerings, and an awesome new take-out freezer where you can buy prepared pizza, desserts, pie crusts, and more, and cook them up in your own house. Personally, I’ll leave the cooking to the talented Jeanine, but either way, you’ll always find something excellent at Cole’s.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Betty Lou’s Gluten-Free Angell Candy Bars

img_20161113_193642355-betty-lous-angell-barsBetty Lou’s…. Mmm mmm mmm! So much deliciousness, so little time!

At this year’s Gluten-Free Expo in Glendale, Arizona, I was introduced to a new line of candy bars from Betty Lou’s: the Angell bar. They are non-GMO, vegetarian, gluten-free, and organic. So, they probably can’t taste good, can they? OH YES THEY CAN.

These candy bars are perfect for me because the only soy is in the lecithin, and two of them don’t contain almonds. I really had to pace myself with these – do you have any idea how hard it was NOT to eat them all at once? Wow, willpower!

The three bars I’ve tried are: Continue reading
