Love With Food: September 2014
I’ve posted about Love With Food before, and since I’ve been busy lately and have produced minimal personal posts over the last few months, I figured I’ve nothing to really lose.
This month’s theme is “Spice Up Your Life”, and the contents are all spicy, though there were some warmer bits. c:
Simply So Sweet Chili Tortilla Chips by Way Better Snacks – These were really great-tasting! They are made with vegetables, like broccoli seed and radish seed, that I dislike, which I suppose, in a weird way, allows me to collect the nutrients of them without the taste being too overpowering? Broccoli, for example, has too strong of a taste for me to like it, and I can’t tolerate it even on its own. The chips lack “yeast” as an ingredient, but there is vinegar in the seasoning, so it’s not the best if you’re avoiding yeast/molds. Then again, anything with seasonings in it is a mold, so…~
Hemp Rules Roasted Hemp Seeds by Ziggy Marley Organics – Hemp seeds were on my list of seeds to try, since nuts are out of the question. I’m not a fan of hemp seeds. Maybe I’ll be able to tolerate them more easily in smoothies or granola bars, which is where I will be trying to put these babies to use, because alone, their flavor is just… well, it’s weird.
5-Spice Dark Chocolate Caramels by Shotwell Candy Co. – Warm in spice, these taffy-like caramel candies have hints of cinnamon and ginger, as well as others whose flavors I do not recognize by default (as I don’t know their individual flavor): star anise, anise seed, ginger and clove. As someone who doesn’t love chocolate, I did like these, because the chocolate was subtle and not too overpowering. It would be good for those who want a balance of sweet and spicy, methinks. :3
Rich Chocolate Cookie Thins by Mandy’s – I loved these, because they tasted like other chocolate cookies I have had in the past, but I can’t name specifically what they taste like. Perhaps it’s the chocolate graham crackers? They’re yeast- and vinegar-free, but they do have eggs. 🙁 Otherwise, I would be all over having these again.
Churro Kettle Corn by Love With Food – :O THEY MADE SOMETHING? AH. XD Anyways, this cinnamon popcorn is really good. I like kettle popcorn, and I think this may be a healthier alternative. Note: It’s produced in a facility that processes peanuts, tree nuts, milk, wheat, and soy. Because of the nuts inclusion in the aforementioned list, I probably won’t be having this again.
Other products included I didn’t try: Green Superfood by Amazing Grass, Lemon Rosemary Seasoning by Fogg City Spice Co., and Maruso Ghost Soy Sauce by Maruso.
