At Expo East, I only took pictures of my favorite products. Here are a few that I tried and was obsessed with. You probably haven’t heard of most brands, which is because they are small and new! You can buy most online however.
These flackers were amazing. Raw, vegan flax seed crackers may not sound appetizing but these taste like crispy cinnamon raisin toast.
These Sea Farm BBQ Seaweed Snacks were amazing! I haven’t had a flavor other than wasabi and these expanded my horizon to a whole new category of foods. The ranch were tasty as well!
Ok, so these cookies by Purely Elizabeth were out of control good. They were vegan and organic, made with almond flour, chia seeds and coconut palm sugar, absolutely phenomenal. One of the best tasting chocolate chip cookies that I have tasted. YES!Of course the half baked consistency helped my opinion. They were perfectly gooey in the center and crispy on top.
So my latest obsession with Kale chips continues with Brads Raw Leafy Kale, specifically the Pina Kale-ada.
The cheesy versions are always a hit as well. I can’t get enough of these dehydrated chips these days.
Chobani took notice of their adult demographic buying their smaller portioned Champion brand line and has created 100-calorie fun flavored snacks that will hit shelves in January. I tried the coffee and chocolate chip. It was the best tasting Greek Yogurt I’ve tried yet.
They also will come in caramel pineapple and a fig combination flavor. Look out for these on shelves in 2013. I also stopped by the Wild Squirrel Nut Butter booth. I saw the girls on Shark Tank and had to stop by. Their peanut butter flavors are delicious. My favorite is the honey pretzel flavor was my favorite!
Another cookie win was by Ginny Bakes. These gluten-free cookies come already made but also in mix form. For one cookie, you’ll only be consuming 80 calories. They were great!
As if I didn’t have enough snacks at the expo, I went to dinner with a few blogger friends at Bria. We wanted something quick and with 8 girls at 8:30 pm we were quickly sat. I ordered a grilled salmon salad with tomatoes and asparagus. The balsamic vinaigrette made the dish.
It’s always fun to catch up with blog friends and we have two more nights! In the picture above are my Laughing Cow gals Allison, and Brittney on the left (Brittney does the TLC twitter), me, Brittany, Julie, Monica, Tina and Lindsey.
