Win-It-Wednesday: Bello Treats – Brigadeiro

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

There is nothing better than a Valentine Day gift that is handmade with love. A gift that is overflowing with love and sweetness. A gift that is made from the heart – and it shows.

Bello Treats is a sweet that is perfect for a gift for your sweetie, or even bought for yourself. Perfect for gifting, or even an everyday indulgence, Bello Treats are gluten-free and have no additives, preservatives and contain high-quality, yet simple, all-natural ingredients.

Discovering Bello Treats has been one of my best gluten-free finds in a long time. Handmade with love by Amanda Bellone, these treats originally pop into my gluten-free radar when discovered at my local farmers market.

Amanda is a Brazilian native and created Bello Treats to introduce her beloved authentic Brazilian Brigadeiro. Commonly known as “brigs”, Briigadeiros (pronounced: bree-gah-day-ro) are a traditional Brazilian treat that’s found at most parties, bakeries and grocery stores in Brazil.

These creamy, silky and soft fudgy treats are to die for! Made with sweetened condensed milk,  a touch of butter, and  Belgium chocolates and other fresh ingredients such as fresh shredded coconut or walnuts, these treats melt in your mouth. Creamy and rich, it’s difficult to eat just one.

These delicious treats are true masterpieces. Hand-crafted in small batches, these artesian-style confections are the gourmet answer to satisfy any sweet tooth. My favorite variety is the Happily Married, a soft and creamy milk chocolate andwhite fudge. But other yummy flavors include the Coconut Kiss, topped with shredded coconut; Almond, topped with shredded almonds; Carnival, a kid’s favorite featuring colored chocolate sprinkles; Fun Chocolate Chip, smothered with chocolate chips, and the Traditional Brig, milk chocolate fudge with chocolate sprinkles.

And lucky for us, just in time for Valentine’s Day, Bello Snacks is sponsoring this Win-It-Wednesday on

Friday Favorite: Taza Chocolate – Indulgence at its best! Gluten, Dairy & Soy Free!

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

This week’s Friday Favorite on is awarded to a product that I love oh-so very much. Taza Chocolate.

Everybody loves chocolate. All kinds of chocolate.

But after tasting a piece of really, really, really good chocolate there is nothing that compares. And Taza Chocolate is incomparable to any other chocolate out there. No other chocolate even comes close.

Taza is an indulgent treat for me. I always have a disk (Or two. Or  three.) tucked away. Hidden away. To be able to enjoy a small piece of really, really good chocolate can makes a stressful day a tad bit better. =) Funny how chocolate can do that, huh?

Taza Chocolate comes in some really cool flavors too. Including Ginger, Salt & Pepper, Vanilla, Chipotle Chili and more. All of the Taza chocolate is gluten, dairy and soy free, and made with all natural ingredients, with no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives of any kind.

Taza also has a sampler pack that is a great Valentine Day gift for that guy or gal in your life, or even for a sweet little gift for yourself! You can get it on Ebay and take advantage of FREE Super Saving Shipping. Check out the link here: Taza Sampler Pack

All of these wonderful reasons is why Taza Chocolate is this week’s sweet Friday Favorite on
