Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Ever since I was a little girl my favorite candy has been red licorice. But after getting diagnosed with celiac disease I had to forgo my favorite candy since most brands are laced with gluten. That’s why I was super thrilled to finally, finally, finally find gluten-free licorice!

Just recently I tried Yum Earth Soft Eating Licorice. Besides the chewy texture and the real fruit juicy burst of strawberries, there is so much more to love about the Yum Earth brand of licorice.

For starters… it’s Certified Gluten-Free. On top of that it is vegan, non-gmo, peanut free, contains real fruit juice, is naturally flavored and has no synthetic dyes. Plus… it is soy free, egg free, dairy free and contains no high fructose corn syrup. Wheww! That’s a lot of “free of” stuff! (Note: it is also made in a dairy & peanut free facility)

Yum Earth is the #1 brand that Mom’s & Dad’s trust when it comes to finding a candy that is free of most allergens. Check out what others are saying about the Yum Earth on their website.

And lucky for all of you there will be two winners of this Win-It-Wednesday. Each of the two winners will receive a bag of the Strawberry soft chewy licorice. What a yummy prize!

One (1) winner will be randomly selected to win from the entries received before Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST, and one (1) more winner will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, May 11 and Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at 11:59PM.

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

This week’s Win-It-Wednesday is keeping the cookie theme going! The prize for this Win-it-Wednesday is Klara’s Gourmet Coconut Macaroons… one of my favorite cookies of all time.

I love the soft chewiness of these macaroons. That combined with the coconut and a hint of vanilla & honey make them one of my top, all-time favorite cookies. The result is that Klara’s macaroons are just as good as fresh bakery macaroons.

Klara’s cookies are also verified Non-GMO.

Along with the Coconut Macaroon’s, Klara’s Gourmet also makes a great gluten-free Chocolate Macaroon too!

And the story behind Klara’s is a good one. If you check out the Klara’s Gourmet website, they tell of Klara’s story: “Klara Sotonova hails from Chrast, a village of 5,000, two hours southeast of the historic Czech capital city, Prague. At age 19, Klara emigrated to the U.S., with the dream of owning her own business – one that honored her family’s long tradition of home-baked, traditional Eastern European sweets.

In 2009, Klara settled her business in the small New England town of Lee, Mass., where she has been sharing her family traditions ever since – with you, her retail customers, and as a wholesaler to grocery stores and specialty retailers around the country. Using natural, organic, non-GMO ingredients wherever possible, Klara’s Gourmet brings pure, authentic flavors to her family heirloom of sweets.”

Some of the flavors include: Cranberry Pistachio, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal, Ginger Crisp, Double Chocolate, Sweet Cinnamon, Butter Crisp, Chocolate Chip Macadamia, and my two favorites… Chocolate Chip and Coconut Oatmeal Bliss.
