PUR Mints Review and $10 Coupon

 

PUR Mints are Gluten and Aspartame Free! And DELICIOUS!!!

Thank YOU, Kendall!

HUGE shout out to Kendall and the PUR Team for sending us samples of their new PUR Mints: Tangerine Tango, Spearmint, Polar Mint, Peppermint and the one I am currently enjoying – Mojito Lime Mint. The mints are gluten-free, aspartame-free and yummylicious! (They are also vegan, nut & soy free, diabetic friendly and non-gmo!)

PUR really promotes the fact that they do not use aspartame to sweeten their products. That’s a good thing. Aspartame is made from genetically modified e-coli, their feces in fact, and I was told it was produced in the same facility as Agent Orange. YUCK! Aspartame gives me migraines, so I stopped eating it even before I found out it was made from bacteria dung.

Instead, PUR uses xylitol, which is pretty smart considering xylitol creates a cooling effect in your mouth. I really like how the packets reseal, so you can save some for later…unless you eat them like candy like I do.  (Mmm. I just crunched into a Peppermint.)

Thanks again, Kendall. The mints are fantastic. I’ll definitely be making PUR my go to mints.

Oh, and Kendall was nice enough to send us a $10 Coupon for our Gluten Free Works Members to use on PUR’s website. Considering they have products for $4.99, you’re looking at FREE STUFF! Woohoo!!! Just enter the coupon code in the image below.  Read More »

Review of Udi’s Gluten-free Sandwich Bread

Anne_steib

I kept hearing numerous accolades about Udi’s Bakery in Denver, CO and their gluten-free foods. I would hear of people placing large orders with them and claiming their bread was the best of the gluten-free breads. So, I had to try this myself to see if the bread lived up to the hype.

UdiThankfully, I recently discovered they carry Udi’s at Woodman’s, who have an extremely large gluten-free section, and decided to try a loaf. Udi’s bread is handcrafted in their dedicated gluten-free facility in Denver, CO, their gluten-free foods are also dairy-, soy-, and nut-free. Read More »

Review: Exotic Gluten Free Simmer Sauces from Saffron Road

I enjoy preparing from scratch home cooked meals for my family, but on especially busy weeknights I sometimes use a few prepared foods to help speed up the process.  Prepared foods typically contain less than healthy ingredients, so I opt for all natural products such as the new gluten free Simmer Sauces from Saffron Road.Saffron Road’s gluten free Simmer Sauces come in four flavors, each a unique taste of world cuisine.  My family had the pleasure of sampling the following simmer sauce flavors, which I am happy to report are also dairy free: Read More »

Review: Lucy’s Gluten Free Cookies – Three New Flavors!

 

Valentine’s day is approaching! Instead of spending hours searching for allergy-friendly Valentine’s candy for your loved ones, consider offering safer sweets with Lucy’s cookies.

 

If you haven’t had the pleasure of tasting them yet, Lucy’s cookies are delicious treats that are gluten-free, vegan, and made without milk, eggs, peanuts or tree nuts, but they taste like “regular” cookies! My favorite thing about Lucy’s cookies (beside the great flavor) is the Read More »
