I’ve never been a huge fan of trail mixes, especially those of the store-bought variety because there’s usually too many things going on in them that don’t appeal to my taste buds. Nor do I care for protein bars. I know a lot of folks like them (my boys love LÄRABARS) and they are very […]
Freedom Foods Tropic O’s Cereal (a.k.a. Gluten, Allergen and Synthetic Dye Free “Fruit Loops”) with a Giveaway!
Gluten and allergen free moms, REJOICE!

It’s funny, […]
I recently received several complimentary gluten-free products from Goldbaum’s to sample and review on my blog. I have been ordering Goldbaum’s gluten-free ice cream “cake-style” cones for a few years now, but that is all I had tried up until this point (and we love them!).
