World Market Gluten-Free Options

World Market is one of my favorite places to find unique gifts and household items, in addition to finding great deals on wine. While I was in our local World Market over the weekend, I was thrilled to see some new gluten-free products and an entire end cap with gluten-free items and a gluten-free list attached to the side.

There were a bunch of different options here, but there are plenty more throughout the store, as noted in the list below.

A couple of the products that really caught my eye were these Gluten-Free Scone Mixes.

I think these are very reasonably priced at $4.99/mix.

There is a gluten-free products list online and some are available to purchase online. World Market has locations across the US and most of those locations have extended holiday hours.

Do you shop at World Market for gluten-free items? If so, do you have any favorites?

Review: Laughing Giraffe Organics Snakaroons

I met some friends for coffee this morning after our weekly Saturday run. While we went to Starbucks to get coffee and chat, none of us purchased any of the baked goods or snacks, as we brought our own. One of the snacks that was being passed around was made by Laughing Giraffe Organics and I like it so much I wanted to make sure you guys heard about it.

Laughing Giraffe Snakaroons are out of this world! We had the Goji Cacao & Maca variety and I could have eaten the whole bag! Ingredients include:

All ingredients are non-GMO verified, certified organic, vegan, raw and certified gluten-free. There are several other varieties if Goji Cacao & Maca is not your thing:

  • Chocolate
  • Lemon
  • Pineapple
  • Banana
  • Vanilla

Laughing Giraffe Organics Snakaroons can be purchased online or in select local heath food stores. My friend found them at Marshall’s. These would make a great stocking stuffer!

The prize packs contain a sampling of some of Udi’s Gluten-Free new and favorite products. We received a similar package to sample and enjoy during the holidays. Some of those new products include the newer Udi’s Gluten-Free Breakfast Burritos.

The burritos are great for those mornings when you are in a hurry and things are hectic. They are cooked in the microwave and are ready in less than 3 minutes. Jon really enjoys eating these before he heads out the door to work in the morning.

We also enjoy Udi’s Gluten-Free Bagels for a quick breakfast either topped with butter or almond butter. Both the burritos and bagels are great for Christmas morning so the kids don’t have to wait too long to open their gifts.

Review: Moondance Desserts Holiday Cookies

I am a huge fan of Moondance Desserts, so when I spotted some Holiday Iced Cookies made by them at Earth Fare yesterday, I had to pick them up. I had a hard time not buying a couple of the other varieties, but stuck with the just the Holiday Iced Cookies this time. Moondance Desserts has a wide variety of desserts that includes cheesecakes, brownies and cookies. Moondance Desserts was founded by Shelley Ritchie after discovering that finding tasty gluten-free treats was not an easy task.

When Jon saw these sitting on the island in our kitchen, he immediately took a picture and texted it to me asking if he could open the box and eat some of the cookies. I appreciate that he asked me, as I may not have gotten to try them otherwise! We both fell in love with these cookies and agree that we haven’t tasted anything like them since going gluten-free, unless we made our own, homemade versions. While there was a time a few years back that I was really into gluten-free baking, I haven’t had much time to do so lately. 

Moondance Desserts are made in a gluten-free facility to avoid any chance of cross-contamination, but there are nuts present in the facility, so those with nut allergies should be cautious. The desserts can be found in over 200 stores across the US, including Whole Foods and Earth Fare. 

Have you tried Moondance Desserts? Don’t miss out if you get a chance to try any of their products! I promise you won’t be disappointed.
