Crunchmaster Grammy Crisps: a Short Review

So, I picked these up at Ingles last night to try, and there’s no easy way to say this, but they were REALLY YUMMY . . . and, their name is ADORABLE! Like, “Grammy Crisps”? How cute is that!? 

I was a bit shocked by their flavor initially. I was expecting a Graham Cracker taste, but instead received something akin to Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I really like them! They’re great by themselves, but also quite delicious with a bit of cream cheese on them as a snack. I would totally recommend them, and y’all should too, after you try them, of course. 

Plus, at 130 calories for 25 of them, they’re not terrible for you either. 😉

Check them out here.

They have my vote for sure. Let me know if y’all have tried them and what you think of them in the comments!

Look for more Gluten Free Product Reviews soon as well as a special announcement. Stay tuned!

My Take on LiveGfree Gluten Free Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Okay, so in recent news, the LiveGfree Sandwich Cookies were a solid 3.5 out of 5. The cookie part was yummy, I dare say it tasted more chocolatey than regular Oreos. So, why only a 3.5, you ask? Well, it’s the creme’s fault. Flavor-wise, it was fine. Not identical to regular Oreos, but fine. The texture was sandy, which didn’t totally ruin the overall experience, but definitely made it less enjoyable. Oreos are supposed to be fun to eat–not like eating something that fell out of your beach bag and into the sand.

Overall, I would eat them again. But I’d probably leave off the creme, which is usually my favorite part. They’re not fantastic, but they’re not horrible. They’re just, eh. I was terribly disappointed as I’d had high hopes for these cookies, and these kind of dashed those. 😦 Though maybe I’ll use them in a chocolate cream pie as the crust . . . hmm . . . that’s a great idea! Off to get some of the ingredients as soon as I finish this little post!

By the way, if you eat them the wrong way (whole, as opposed to twisting the top off, then eating the creme and second cookie together) 
they taste FAR better, and it assists in canceling out the sandy texture. 

Well, ya win some and ya lose some.

What have y’all’s most disappointing Gluten Free product tests been?

Aldi (Part 2): What’s a “Special Buy”? + New LiveGfree items

Ah . . . Special Buys. I have a love/hate relationship with these. There’s nothing worse than finding a product you adore and having it go away after a week. At the same time, if it weren’t for Special Buys, Aldi wouldn’t have the LiveGfree line of products.  (Originally introduced in May as a Special Buy, this line has been brought back by consumer demand and is now permanently available in all Aldi stores as of today.) 

Aldi is does a fantastic job in communicating with their consumers, and I wholeheartedly recommend following them on Facebook and Twitter to keep in touch with them and show some love they richly deserve.

So, what is a special buy anyways? 

Well, let me explain. Every week Aldi releases a limited line of products, from quinoa to chain saws. The product is available at their stores until it sells out and more new stuff is brought in the next week. So you need to get there when the Special Buy starts, or you may miss it altogether.

So, why in the world are we talking about Special Buys at Aldi
Well . . . 

This week Aldi’s Special Buys include some fun products in the LiveGfree line!
Let’s look into those, shall we? 

1) Gluten Free Cracklebread
It’s a cracker! It’s a flatbread! It’s CRACKLEBREAD! Haha. So many puns possible for this. Anyways, it will available in Original or Sun Dried Tomato, and should be a fun snack addition! Maybe with Havarti you can find at Aldi too?  $2.99 for a 3.5 ounce package.

2) Gluten Free Soup
So, I’m not a huge fan of noodle soups, but I’ll try this for y’all, ’cause I love you and want to be able to do an honest review. Anyways, they’ll have it available in Veggie Noodle and Chicken Noodle. $1.69 for a 15-ounce can.
3) Gluten Free Sandwich Cookies
Please taste like Oreos. Please taste like Oreos. PLEASE TASTE LIKE OREOS! That’s all I have to say about these. Flavors available are: Chocolate or Vanilla Creme. $3.29 for a 10.5 ounce package.
What are you most excited about in the LiveGfree Special Buy Line?
You should be able to get these products at your local Aldi today!

Happy Tasting!
