Just in time for the holidays, Made from Earth is offering a special discount for A Life Less Sweet readers! Zip over to my Reviews blog for details or see the button on the sidebar.
The holiday season is upon us! Life is always busy here, but even more so this time of year. To that end, I'm going to be taking a little break during the month of December. Look for some of my favorite recipes and informative posts through the month of December instead.
But first...I want to share just a few of my favorite products - all HFCS and trans fat free, of course!
Tillen Farms Merry Maraschino Cherries - I have been searching and searching for a HFCS-free maraschino cherry, and I finally found them! Tillen Farms makes a maraschino cherry with all natural ingredients - Cherries, water, sugar, vegetable and fruit concentrate (color), natural flavor. I love these! Because they're colored with vegetable and fruit concentrate (another plus) rather than food dye, they aren't as garishly red as regular maraschino cherries. They are very sweet, of course, but they don't seem as gloppishly, syrupy sweet as regular maraschino cherries to me. In short, these are a winner here! And I love that I can once again make my desserts that call for maraschino cherries without compromising my food values!
Julies Organic Ice Cream Sandwiches - Another pre-packaged luxury that was lost to us when we gave up trans fat. Seems like almost every ice cream sandwich on the market has either HFCS or partially hydrogenated oil - or both. These ice cream sandwiches are great! Nice size, good flavor, nice ingredients. And, once again, we get to enjoy the occasional treat of an ice cream sandwich!
