I love reading posts about products bloggers love – from lip gloss to cleaning supplies. Here are a random mix of food items that have impressed me lately.
I recently bought a container of this Noosa yogurt – made in Colorado but inspired by “the finest yoghurt from Australia.” I noticed its pretty package, which led me to pick it up and I found a flavored yogurt with a simple ingredient list and only 9 grams of sugar. Made from grass-fed milk too! I pretty much exclusively eat plain yogurt (except for Siggi’s and the occasional flavored something-or-other) so I decided to give it a taste for something different. It’s a full-fat yogurt with raspberry fruit on the bottom.
Upon first taste I was HOOKED – soooooo incredibly good. The yogurt part alone tasted like cream and the raspberry puree just added that much more. Velvety indeed. I didn’t eat this like I would my regular yogurts covered in fruit and crunch. Rather I savored it spoonful by spoonful for a light snack or dessert. I hope to try another flavor soon!
My future brother-in-law’s sister (so does that maker her a future sister-in-law?), Chelsea, works for Paromi Teas and gave us each a few flavors for Christmas. I’m just now to the end of my Chamomile Lavender and will be buying more [they have it at Whole Foods]. I just love this with frothed milk and a touch of Stevia in the Raw. Great anytime of day because it’s caffeine free.
I found this new flavor of smoked trout at Relay Foods: Cole’s Trout. It was kind of like a cross between the lemony sardines I used to buy and the plain smoked trout from Trader Joe’s. Thumbs up for taste!! The company is earth friendly too. I’m going to look for the sardines and mackerel as well.
In my Favorite Nut Butters post, a few of you mentioned NaturAlmond. I have steered away from accepting products to review regularly, but when the owner of the company offered to send me a jar I couldn’t say no!
The recipe is the owner’s grandfather’s from the 1970s, and the ingredients are just “roasted almonds + salt.” I am a huge fan of roasted almonds, so of course, I loved it. The texture is spot on – melty yet thick all in one with crunchy almond bits. I added this to the honorable mention list of favorites! [I’ll be requesting that my local WF or Fresh Market carry it – here’s a where to buy]
These chips. Are awesome. That’s all!
I bought everything in this post except the NaturAlmond. And the tea, which was a Christmas gift.
