If you enjoy the taste and texture of nuts and seeds, SunRidge Farms offer a complete line of certified organic and natural nuts & seeds that are carefully selected. Their selection includes roasted and tamari roasted almonds, cashews, walnuts, pistachios, pecans, and pumpkin seeds. Each and every one of their nut products is free of additives, artificial flavors, and preservatives. Their certified organic and natural cranberries, apricots, mango, pineapple, papaya, crystallized ginger, raisins, and more offer the natural sweetness that only Mother Nature can provide. SunRidge Farms tropical fruits are guaranteed to have no added sulphites, and do not contain hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

I love trail mix…and nuts…and really almost any kind of fruit. SunRidge Farms combines these 3 foods into one amazing snack food: Organic Deluxe Trail Mix!! And it’s ORGANIC! This was SunRidge Farms’ first-ever product and let me tell you, it’s delicious. I pretty much ate the whole bag in 2 sittings-well standings because with 3 kids who has time to sit?? My 4 year old helped me finish off the bag proving to me that this trail mix is even better than I originally thought because this child is a picky snack eater. This snack contains organic dried apricots, organic roasted peanuts, organic raw almonds, organic dried apples, organic walnuts, organic date pieces, organic sunflower seeds, and organic raisins.

I also tried the Organic Hit the Trail Mix which is a combination of roasted Tamari almonds, sunflower seeds, cashews, raisins, peanuts, and pumpkin seeds; and the Organic Supreme Almonds which are certified USDA organic and packed with 6g of protein!

All of these products, besides being delicious, do not have any artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors, and have 0g of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, titanium dioxide, rBST, and are non-GMO.

SunRidge Farms has a wide variety of healthy snacks and is a certified green business! This company uses solar lighting, they use biodiesel trucks and hybrid vehicles, and they are involved in recycling programs and also support numerous charitable causes. I absolutely love the SunRidge Farms products and love their dedication to our environment!

Zing Anything

IMG_1843Zing Anything brings you a refreshing new way to subtly infuse all-natural ingredients into your beverages and cuisine. Enhance the flavor and health benefits of water by using their Aqua or Citrus Zinger water bottles with fruit, veggies, and herbs to create refreshingly flavored drinks. You can stay away from artificial flavors, colorings, and refined sugars simply and smartly with the Zing Anything product line. By using all-natural ingredients, Zing Anything is great for your health, your wallet, and the environment. At home, school, the gym, or on the go – when you Zing, you capture healthy and delicious benefits.

We recently tried out the Citrux Zinger water bottle. It is designed specifically for citrus fruits. You can easily zing away with lemons, limes, clementines, and more. It so easy and convenient to use. You flip it over and juice whatever you want. We used lemons. It worked great to infuse our water with lemon juice, and it was easy enough that Madison could do it (my 9 year old). If you want something a different than plain water, this is the easiest way to do it!

G.H. Cretors Popped Corn

Caramel corn, caramel apples, apple pie and pumpkin spice. There’s nothing like food to get you into the season! How about a story on simple ways to enjoy fall seasonal favorites?

With a history in popcorn dating back to 1885, GH Cretors makes its caramel corn the old fashioned way: by hand, in copper kettles. Cane sugar, brown rice syrup (a non-GMO alternative to corn syrup with a lower glycemic impact) and real butter is heated over a flame and then stirred slowly by hand to develop its rich complex flavor and crunch. Using 100% natural ingredients, no artificial flavors or colors, locally grown Non-GMO popcorn, and special, “mushroom” variety popping corn resulting in wonderfully large, fluffy kernels, GH Cretors offers a healthy twist on a delectable classic snack.

I can honestly say that this is some of the best popcorn I have had. One of my favorite foods is caramel corn, and this carmel corn is absolutely delightful. I could easily have sat down and eater the entire bag in one sitting! It literally melts in my mouth. Bill’s favorite popcorn is the Cheese Corn. It was very cheesy! The Chicago Mix gave us the best of both worlds!

If you are looking for a non-GMO snack or just a great snack over, GH Cretors popped corn!
