Win-It-Wednesday: Mikaela’s Simply Divine Biscotti Cookies

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

group_siderevValentine’s Day is right around the corner, so I am starting to think of sweet treats… both for myself and to share. One of my new favorite brands of cookies is Mikaela’s Simply Divine.

I found these cookies by chance while poking around shopping and was immediately tantalized by the flavors and the fact the cookies are Biscottis … yet shaped round like regular cookie.

And yes… these cookies are truly simply divine!

And the flavors! My favorite is the Chocolate Mint Biscotti, but they also have a Luscious Lemon and a traditional Chocolate Chip.

These cookies are also Non-GMO, kosher, all natural, and contain no trans fat… as well as gluten-free.

A total of two (2) BeFreeForMe members will be selected to win a package of the Mikaela’s Simply Divine Chocolate Mint Biscotti Cookies.  One winners will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST, and one more winners will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, February 1 and Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 11:59 PM. SO – make sure you enter to win two times!

Win-It-Wednesday: Lucy’s Gluten, Nut, Milk & Egg Free Cookies

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

lemon lucysThis week’s WIN-It-Wednesday on BeFreeForMe.com is one of my favorite gluten-free cookie companies that is founded by one smart cookie herself, Dr. Lucy Gibney.

Lucy’s is founded by a doctor that got down to some serious medical research – in the kitchen – because her child had severe food allergies.  What began as a mother’s tasty recipe for her child has developed into a delicious alternative for people with (or even without!) special dietary considerations. Not only are Lucy’s Cookies gluten-free, they are also free of peanuts, tree nuts, milk and eggs. They are also vegan.

And even though Lucy’s Cookies are free of gluten and other common allergens, they aren’t missing out on flavor and tastiness. They are full of crunchy, airy cookie goodness, that makes them perfect for old-school milk dipping or classic ice cream sandwiches.

My most recent craveable dessert is sandwiching one of my favorite ice cream flavors, Black Raspberry, between two of Lucy’s Ginger Snap cookies. The spiciness of the cookies and the berry-creaminess of the ice cream is a match made in gluten-free heaven.

And with only 120 calorie for three (YES 3!) cookies, 0 mg cholesterol, and 0 g tans fat – my most recent favorite dessert is even sweeter!

The flavors of Lucy’s cookies goes beyond the ordinary too. As well as toting a bake sheet of traditional favorites, Lucy’s also offers some tantalizing flavors for the adult palate. Some include Ginger Snap, Maple Bliss, and Chocolate – as well as Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon Thin and Sugar.

A total of two(2) BeFreeForMe members will be selected to win a two-pack of  Lucy’s Cookies.  One winners will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 11:59 PM EST, and one more winners will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, October 26 and Tuesday, November 1, 2016 at 11:59 PM.

Win-It-Wednesday: Curenero Macaroons

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

I love it when I find a scrumptious treat at a bargain!

That’s why I was so super excited to discover Curenero Macaroons at a local store. The price was good, the quality superb and the taste incredible! Plus they are gluten free.

These macaroons are made in Italy (hence the website written all in Italian!) and imported to the US. These macaroons are the real deal. I brought these macaroons to the beach (beach days are great days for treats,right?) and they were gobbled up by all and had rave reviews.

And lucky for all of you, I picked up two extra boxes of these macaroons for this Win-It-Wednesday edition on BeFreeForMe.com.

Friday Favorite: Nana’s Cookie Bars

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

I love Nana’s soft, chewy cookie bars. Unlike some gluten-free cookies, they are moist and delicious – perfect for tea-time or snack-time.

These gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and egg-free cookie bars are also non-GMO and are certified gluten-free. The flavors are awesome too: Berry Vanilla, a classic vanilla cookie with a touch of berry; the Chocolate Munch, a chocolate lover’s cookie paradise; and my favorite, the Nana Banana, packed with real banana-y goodness.

Nana’s also makes some great cookies too. Soft and chewy, as well, some of the gluten-free flavors include Chocolate Crunch, Ginger and Lemon. They are also free of the same allergens as the cookie bars.

I also love that both the cookie bars and the cookies are individually wrapped, which means they stay fresh longer and can be transported easily in a purse, back-pack or lunch tote.

All these delicious gluten-free and allergen-free reasons are why I am so excited that Nana’s Cookie Bars are awarded this week’s Friday Favorite on BeFreeForMe.com! Congrats!

Win-It-Wednesday: HomeFree Cookies

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

This Win-It-Wednesday contest on BeFreeForMe is sponsored a delicious and healthy cookie that is perfect for everyone – including those with food allergies, sensitivities and celiac disease.

Not only do I love these cookies, but I also the story behind the cookies. HomeFree cookies are baked with love, and developed by a Mom, Jill Robbins, who understands how important it is for kids with food allergies and sensitivities to feel included during social occasions, where sweet treat are often part of the fun.

HomeFree cookies come in several varieties which are all free of peanuts, tree nuts, eggs and dairy. Most are also free of gluten and are certified by the GFCO.

The varieties that are gluten-free include: Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chocolate Chip (my favorite!), Oatmeal, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, and the Mini Vanilla Cookies, which are also 70% organic and can tout a few awesome awards including being a finalist in the Best New Food category at the Natural Products Expo East 2011 (the 2nd largest natural food show in U.S.) and being the winner of the 2011 Best Snack Award by Shape magazine.

The name of these cookies, HomeFree, is so very fitting for what these cookies are – and for what they stand for. HomeFree make cookies are safe, and without problems for those that are on a gluten-free diet, or are concerned with other food allergens or sensitivities.  These cookies are made in HomeFree’s own dedicated facility free of peanuts, tree nuts, eggs and dairy with allergen sourced and tested ingredients.

HomeFree cookies are also a certified good source of whole grain (trust me… the kids won’t even notice!)  Every cookie (or 6 minis) provides at least ½ serving of the 3 recommended daily servings… amazing for a delicious cookie! Also, all HomeFree products are all natural and non-GMO.

I also like that these cookies come in “mini” sizes… which are perfect for little hands and pack up so sweet in lunch pails.

All these reasons are why I am SO excited that HomeFree Treats is sponsoring the next two week’s WIN-It-Wednesdays on BeFreeForMe.com. Four winners will win a box of HomeFree Gluten-Free Cookies.  Two (2) winner will be chosen from all entries received before Tuesday, November 8, 2011 at 11:59 PM EST and another winner will be chosen from all entries received between Wednesday, November 9 and Tuesday November 15, 2011 at 11:59 PM EST.
