Today I have an assortment of products that I recently tried. Some just blow my mind! Like my first item up, which is holiday ice cream treats from one of my all time favorite companies; So Delicious.
I discovered So Delicious when my doctor told me to go lactose free for a while since I was having stomach issues. Come to find out I was allergic to Soy. But anyway, I discovered So Delicious products that are dairy free and totally yummy. I have been a fan ever since. So Delicious is going holiday crazy this year and I love it. They have Halloween Ice Cream treats in Pumpkin Spice and Candy Corn. I first tried the pumpkin and fell in love. They tasted just like an ice cream flavored pumpkin latte and only 100 calories a bar. Then I tried the Candy Corn one. I thought I wouldn’t like it, but then it blew my mind. It is a candy corn shaped ice cream with a vanilla middle with an orange creamsicle bottom, that was dipped in chocolate on the top. Oh my gosh!! I am so stocking up on these. They taste amazing!! The candy corn ones are only 110 calories. I have included the nutritional info below.
Then I got to try the So Delicious Dairy-Free Holiday drinks. I have had the Mint Chocolate Chip last year and even made a smoothie with it. You can check out the recipe here. But one thing I love that they did this year is that they do not need to be refrigerated until you open it. I tried the pumpkin spice one and it tastes out of this world. Creamy, pumpkin flavor with the perfect balance of spice. You will be seeing recipes using it, so stay tuned. I have not yet tried the Eggnog flavor one and will do so in a month or so. It’s too early for eggnog, and I want to stick to Fall for right now. I’ll let you know what I think in the later months.
The last product I have from So Delicious is their new whip cream. It’s coconut flavor. If you follow me, you know how much I love making my own coconut whip cream, but now it is so easy, I can just buy it. The whip cream is light and flavorful. You can find it in the freezer section of your grocery store.
One thing that we have been buying is Illy’s ice coffee drinks. I have tried almost all of the flavors and we just love them. I actually think they taste better than Starbucks ice coffee, which is saying a lot for me. Plus it’s cheaper than Starbucks and I am all about saving a couple bucks. Each serving is 8 oz. and only contain 100 calories. You should check them out next time you are at the store. They are located in the refrigerator section.
Glutino Gluten-Free Breakfast Bars and Glutino Pretzels. I love the breakfast bars. They are filled with a strawberry middle, make for a great grab and go breakfast and tastes like a strawberry sandwich. I think they are great for a snack and perfect for those who are gluten-free. The pretzles are one of my favorites. They are extra crispy and perfect for dipping. I said it before, but I am a huge fan of Glutino’s gluten-free pretzels.
Little Jenny has been buying Alouette spreadable cheese and the one day I tried the herb flavored one and I loved it. When I went to the store to buy some, I saw the smoked jalapeno and you know I had to buy it. It tastes delsih. It’s creamy, has a slight smoky jalapeno flavor, however it does taste like cream cheese to me. I would like it more if it were a tad spicier. But for those who like flavored cream cheese, I highly recommend Alouette Spreadable Cheese.
You know I couldn’t go without sharing at least one Trader Joe’s item. Today I am sharing with you one of my all time favorite hummus’s. This is my go to hummus when I don’t feel like making my own. It’s 50 calories for 2 tbsp. It has a nice bell pepper flavor but I don’t feel it’s too spicy. I love it!
Well that’s it for this weeks Yum Yum Wednesday!
Have a great rest of the week. Oh and have you tried any new products lately? Tell me so I can give them a try.
