CVS Gluten Free Product Find

I was at CVS yesterday to pick up cough medicine because . . . #SickGirlProblems, and while there realized I hadn’t eaten yet, and went off to their snack area with SUPER low expectations of finding anything Gluten Free when I stumbled upon these:


And I was really impressed. They’re super tasty, make an awesome snack, and they’re Certified Gluten Free! So, if you have a CVS near you . . . try these out!

Have a Super Saturday y’all!

Frozen Yogurt Bites!

Want a quick summer snack? Well . . . here ya go!

  1. IMG_4264Grab a package of 4 yogurt cups. I picked both Raspberry Chocolate, and Caramel Macchiato.
  2. Scrape the yogurt from one package (four yogurt cups) into a gallon size bag.
  3. Line a few trays with wax paper (make sure they aren’t wider than your freezer, if you don’t have trays that work, try an old cereal box or something similar. You just need a flat surface that can be put in the freezer.)
  4. Cut the corner off of your bag and pipe quarter size dots of yogurt onto the wax paper. IMG_4266
  5. Once you’ve piped all your yogurt onto trays, put them in your freezer for about 30 to 45 minutes.
  6. After they’re frozen solid, peel them off the wax paper and toss them in a freezer safe gallon size bag. Keep them in the freezer, and grab a few as a cool snack whenever you want!! 🙂

The Caramel Macchiato ones are below. I ended up with 120 of those.


All the Yogurt Bites together:

IMG_4277Out of 8 cups of yogurt, I got around 240 yogurt bites. Which means one cup of yogurt makes 30 bites and you can have 30 bites for 80 calories! 🙂

What are some cool summer snacks y’all are making? Share your favorites in the comments below!! 🙂

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!



Copycat Chuy’s Jalapeno Dip

In anticipation of Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, I thought I’d share a copycat Chuy’s recipe with y’all! This would make the perfect addition to your chip and dip bar, a dip for quesadillas or to drizzle on to nachos, salads, or enchiladas. This stuff is addictive, so you may want to make a double batch. 😉


Copycat Chuy’s Jalapeno Dip:

Ingredients (don’t let the picture above deceive you, you don’t use nearly that much cilantro, or five jalapeños):

  • 1 long green chile (chopped)
  • 1/3 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 packet of ranch mix
  • 2 medium size jalapeños (chopped)
  • 1 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup of buttermilk (you can use plain milk, and add in 2 teaspoons vinegar)
  • Throw all your ingredients into a food processor, and mix until smooth!


As I mentioned before, this is awesome drizzled over nachos. See:


Hope y’all had an awesome day, and I’ll see you here tomorrow for Cinco de Mayo!! 😉



Snackity Snacks

Today we’re going to talk about some quick and easy Gluten Free snacks. Specifically I want to highlight things that would be easy to toss in your bag, eat on the go or have with you in case there’s no safe (gluten-free) food wherever you’re going. By the way, all of these opinions are my own. No one asked me to promote these products. I just really like them all. Without further ado, let’s get to it, shall we?

1) GoPicnic Boxes: 
These have quite a few Gluten Free options for BreakfastLunch, and Snacks. We’ve bought lunch varieties of them before and eaten different components as snacks. They’re great to keep in the car for a quick meal on the go or just a boost of energy during the day. The one pictured below is my current favorite. If you can’t find these at your local grocery store, try Amazon. We got them at Target.


2) Pamela’s Products Whenever Bars:
These are great. They aren’t dry and crumbly like most Gluten Free granola bars, and they’re decent sized. My personal favorite is the Blueberry Lemon flavor. Y’all can find them on Amazon or in your local Kroger store, which is where I find them. 😉
3) Pirate’s Booty, Aged White Cheddar:
This stuff is really great. I don’t know if y’all have tried it yet, but you should. SUCH a great snack! I buy it at Kroger, and sometimes can find it at Aldi, but you can find it on Amazon as well. 😀
4) Annie’s Gluten Free Bunny Cookies in Snickerdoodle:
Random tidbit, I’m obsessed with all things Snickerdoodle flavored–including these cookies from Annie’s Homegrown. They’re so delicious. They’re cute, and they’re Gluten Free. What more could you want? I’ve bought them from Target, but you can find them on Amazon as well.
5) GoGo SqueeZ Apple Cherry:
Okay, I understand that my snack choices are looking a wee bit like a 5 year old’s, but those kids know what they’re doing when it comes to snacks. I’m not kidding. This applesauce tastes like cherry pie, which is pretty cool. If you don’t like cherry pie, (which may hurt our friendship, but I’ll get over it) 😉 they have a bunch of other flavors. Find those here. I get them at Target, but if you don’t have a Target close  . . .  (and I am so sorry for you if that’s the case) you can find them on Amazon!
6) Larabar Mini Bars:
I personally love Larabars, but I usually only eat a whole one in place of a meal. So, what to do when you want a Larabarfor a snack? Buy the minis, obviously. Plus they’re adorable, which is a HUGE factor in snack choosing, right? I buy them at Target or Kroger. You can find them on Amazon too! 😉
7) Crunchmaster Grammy Crisps:
If y’all have read my blog for a while, you know I wrote a review on these. If you’re new here, I wrote a review on these y’all!! Find it here. 😉 I love them and think they’d be yummy with my next featured snack. I bought them at Ingles, but I am sure you could find them on Amazon . . . oh wait, you can. ‘Cause I found them for y’all. You’re welcome! 😉 I love these, and they’re great with cream cheese, or. . .
8) Justin’s Honey Almond Butter:
I’m in love with Almond Butter. Between it and Sunbutter, I could honestly have little to no use for Peanut Butter. This Almond Butter would be great on the snack above or on celery. Goodness, it’d be great alone. Find It on Amazon, or at Target.
Hope y’all have found some great snack ideas!

Happy snacking, y’all!
